No April showers, but ....

There was plenty of other events to keep us busy during the month. 
Olivia turned 9. We celebrated our sweet young lady. She is such a joy to have in our family. She has talents that are growing and increasing. She is a great ball player and a huge help to me around the house. She is finishing third grade with good grades and looking forward to a summer in the pool! I love how she is sensitive to the Lord's leading and will speak up when she feels injustice. Her fashion sense keeps all of us on our toes too! 

 With friends at the Springs and Uncle Aaron the great watermelon slicer!
 Easter morning was celebrated around here with candy, but it did not over shadow the truth of our Lord's resurrection.
 Beautiful girls, inside and out!
 Our annual pic with Grandpa. He is soon to be 93 and we love to catch him on the holidays for a picture. Plus the girls like to see how they are catching up to him in height!
 Celebrating Olivia's birthday at the park with friends from Co-op.
 She had her best plays on short stop this year. She is quite the serious player!
 Our lefty must make the pitchers a little nervous, because most of her times up to bat she gets walked.
 This is Stormie. He joined our family this month. He is a wild man in the evenings . He thinks if I am in the kitchen he needs a treat. He loves to  play with the girls, and loves to hide in Stephanie's bedroom!
 This girl never stops reading. She has a book usually within a short distance of her. This was during her sister's game.
 Stephanie plays right or center most of the time. She can bat either right or left handed, but I think she likes to cheer in the dugout the best!
 This girl has a stance that means business and can hit a ball with some gusto!
 The girls had friends over recently and they had an OBLECK war. It is still on the back porch floor!
 The kids worship band lead in the adult service the other day. Out of the mud was the song and both the girls have great voices. It was nice to have Dad on the guitar too!
 Our last field trip was to DeLeon Springs near Deland. The kids got in the cold water, but not me! Oh no ma'am!
 These girls are growing up into beauties. Boys beware!
We have had the chance to have Finn, my nephew over a few times this month. He is hilarious and is a stinker!
