End of soccer season

So soccer season is over for both boys. I have to say I am missing it. With both boys playing on different teams we were at the field more days then not.
Next is coach pitch baseball for Parker and gymnastics for Bray. Sierra is still plugging away at the violin and Lilly is just working her way up to walking :)

Parker the soccer stud and his number one fan Lil

and then came the tornado

It was around 10pm when the tornado warning alarm went off the first time. I handed Lilly off to Sierra and met Rob upstairs as we carried the sleeping boys to the basement. We hung out for about an hour. In the morning you could really see the path the small tornado made around our house. I can't imagine what a large tornado would be like.

Easter with the kids

Anyone with much younger siblings can relate to Sierra here :)

Easter Morning was fun. Parker and Bray were thrilled to have all the candy!

Lilly was happy with her new Little People :)

Lilly was wiped out. This seems to be the only way she sleeps

Spring Break

Then all the local maternal prayers were answered and it the sun came out :)

Spring Break Part One

It was cold and raining, not the way I think spring break should start.. but we made the best of it. Sierra hibernated, the boys made Easter crafts and Lilly hung out.

Bragging on Sierra

Okay first let me be honest, this is all her. She gets the grades on her own and very rarely asks for help from Rob or I. I really don't want to take credit for her success, but I cannot help but brag :)

Sierra was accepted to Shaw High Schools Global Media Magnet Program! Shaw is one of two advanced placement honor schools here and she had her heart set on it.

After applying she was invited back for an interview which we were told would be about 20 minutes, after being in for only 5 minutes Sierra came out unsure of what to expect. We went back and forth on if a short interview was good or bad. Then the letter came in over the weekend!! whoohoooo!!

Can we play photo shoot?

So the other day I had little over an hour to fill and wanted to avoid the TV. I asked Bray what he wanted to do and he said "A PHOTO SHOOT! You can take mine and Lilly's pictures and I will tell her what to do." Now I know I take too many pictures :) But as long as they enjoy it I will continue (Sierra does not share the same enthusiasm of being photographed).

Forever Rain

It has been raining for what seems like the larger part of two weeks. On top of that Brayden and I have been sick and Lilly has been a teething crazed baby. I am thankful for a few days of great weather but thought I would share some pics from our rained out yucky week.
This was the look after I said it was going to rain all day.. again
I broke down yesterday and told Bray we would leave the house when there was a break in the rain so he waited at the door. We did finally go to lunch with Dad and that helped move the day along.

Lilly is all smiles here, which I don't understand considering she hadn't slept much in 3 days.
