Catching up

A lot has been going on since I last blogged. Since I don't have a lot of time and the beautiful weather is calling me, I am just going to hit the highlights without much detail. I know, that will be hard for me to do, but I am going to attempt it!

Aunt Pat and Uncle Larry drove down, with my mom in tow, to join in on the Welcome Home Celebration for Chris. We had a GREAT visit with lots of catching up, card playing, cocktail hours complete with homemade wine (thank goodness Uncle Larry inherited Grandpa's winemaking skills!) and way too much food! It was a wonderful visit, but way too short. Uncle Larry promises that they will be back and I WILL hold him to it!

The end of February our time was devoted to Will. He was in a Cup Stacking tournament, a Cub Scout pinewood derby and had a sleepover at SciWorks with his dad and a couple hundred other scouts. He won a third place medal in Cup Stacking, but didn't place in the derby.
The beginning of March brought lots of beautiful weather and we have been taking advantage of each day. Will started baseball practice and is extremely excited about playing this year. He is in a more serious league this year, so we are all anxious to see how things turn out.
Allan put up a bird feeder for me (my birthday present) and we are squirrel-free so far. We tried wrapping copper sheeting around the post in hopes that it would not allow the squirrels to climb. Stay tuned our final results. Now, if we could just keep the deer away from the backyard flowers and plants......

Here are a few pictures to highlight the last few weeks.

We have grass!

That 3rd place medal looks pretty cool! The grass is much greener there than here too.
