Spring is here but if feels so much like the early summer months! For the kids, it makes having another couple of months of school really hard as they would much rather be out until dark riding their bikes and playing catch instead of practicing spelling words and learning sight words.
Papa Dave celebrated his 61st birthday last Friday. The kids worked really hard making him this special birthday crown. The month of March is a super busy month of birthdays for our family...Papa J.R., Uncle Bear, Papa Dave and Nana. And Aunt Jill's is the beginning of April.

Last night Levi had his preschool "Good Night, Sleep Tight" spring program. He was super excited about wearing his new pajamas (had to pull his fleece ones from the drawers and bring out summer jammies) and even more thrilled to see one of his best buddies wearing the same ones. Levi did great during the program but I think looking out in to the crowd of parents, grandparents and siblings was a little intimidating for him. He never cracked a smile the entire time on the stage as to him it was all business. I loved watching him take a bow after each song he performed in.

So just when I think I have Reid entertained for a few minutes with food and turn away to finish up what I have going on the stove, I come back to this...
Yep, he's done and most of it has landed on the floor and now what was just needed to give me a few minutes of time turns in to a huge clean-up along with Reid going straight to the tub.
But isn't he thoughtful to hand be the empty bowl instead of chucking it down on the floor too!!!
Earlier in the week we were able to spend the afternoon fixing up the front flower bed and getting our flowering pots planted. Levi was Wes's little "Mini Man" and followed him around wanting to help with everything. I love how he even stripped his shirt and went and got his baseball cap on so that he could look just like his dad.
It's rare occasion when Levi decides to let his hair be spiked, but when he does, he is ohh so cute!
