This year we had both Megan and Jane in soccer. They are totally in it only for the fun of being part of a team and getting out and being active, but they have great attitudes and totally love it.
Megan’s team was green this year and was made up of several girls she had played with before and a coach we had worked with before. She had a great season and was so supportive of her teammates. She sure tries hard and works her hardest.
Jane’s team was black and Jane was one of only 2 girls. She had so much fun and always had a smile on her face. She LOVED being a part of a team. She was happy and positive and always moving. It was a great 1st season for her.
These girls couldn’t be more different but they sure love each other and are very supportive. Great job on a great season girls!
Our Easter holiday started with a ward Easter activity at the park. There was a message about Easter and then an egg hunt. Adam took the three big kids and they had a great time.
While Adam and the big kids were gone, Charlotte and I had a little Easter photo shoot. This girl is so cute and perfect!
Easter morning the children woke up to our traditional jelly bean trail. As a child I remember getting lots of fun wonderful Easter surprises in my basket. I have carried on the same tradition with my children.
Alec wasn’t sure what to think when he woke up to a trail of candy. But he caught on quick and had a great Easter morning!
No jelly bean trail for Charlie, but she was pleased with her treasures as well.
Next we donned our most Easter-y Sunday best and headed out to church. Partaking of the sacrament, renewing our covenants, and speaking of the Savior and his infinite atonement is always the most wonderful and most important part of Easter.
After church we dyed Easter eggs and had a little Easter hunt of our own in our home. It was a wonderful holiday.
As always, we missed our little Jack. Because He lives, one day we will be together forever and ever.
There are not enough good things in the whole entire world that could be said about my sweet Alec. He is such a wonderful little boy. He is happy and gentle and sweet and loving. He has gone through a handful of difficult things in his short little life. My heart aches for his struggles and hardships. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for his every happiness. He holds my whole heart in his tiny little hands. Little boys do not come any better than this one.
We started Alec’s birthday with birthday donuts and gifts. Then there was a ward Easter activity (which I will include on the Easter post.) Adam also took Alec and Jane and Megan swimming at the rec center. That evening we had cake and ice cream and just spent the entire day celebrating as a family.
Alec had been asking about his birthday for months and had a truly wonderful day. Not only did Alec totally skip over the “terrible twos” but he is also the most terrific three year old ever! We love you Alec!
