Signs of spring in Michigan....

I guess the fact that it's raining and not snowing is Mother Nature's way of telling us it's springtime in Michigan.

AYSO lasso'ed me in to coach 2 soccer teams. Well, I'm the head coach for Anna's U-8 team and assistant coach for Cam's U-10 with Mike again. In fact, there are 2 teams that still need coaches. I feel bad for those kids. I made calls to all my parents last night letting them know when the first practice would me. Another sign that it's time to get outta the house... We practiced a little last night before my hands got too cold. The kids are excited that I'm getting involved...I'm not so sure if I'm ready!

Spring Break started today...the kids think we need to do something fun and exciting each day. I told them that today was CLEAN THE LIVING/TV ROOMS DAY. Tomorrow would be CLEAN THE BATHROOMS DAY. Needless to say they were not impressed. However, by noon we had both our scheduled rooms done and they are now back to being couch potatoes. There are dishes that need to be done, but I'm sure I can roped the girls into helping. They dig getting to use the sprayer and all the soap. :-)

I do have some snow crocus that have bloomed. Well, they bloomed, got covered by snow and sort of wilted. Now they are back and seem to be doing ok. Unless Riley or Oliver decides to plod through them. I was reading that the cherry blossoms are out in D.C. I'd love to see them. I've been to D.C. twice, but never during the spring. Maybe we can take the kids or maybe I can wait til I'm old and don't have anything better to do than to sit on a bench and take it all in.

Another sign of spring? Muddy footprints all over. Mine, the kids, Wayne's, the dog's....I hate it.

POTHOLES and ROAD CONSTRUCTION...blah.
As trees, plants and grass come to life, so do Cam and Anna's allergies.
Weddings, bridal showers, graduations....so far we have 4 bridal showers, 4 weddings, and no graduations that I can think of. EESH!
Time to make the natives lunch...they're getting restless.

Nope! It's for real! :-) I joked with Dawn last night that my winners would probably be you, her and Karen, (maybe my nieces Michelle and Kate), and my aunt Cheryl. LOL! It doesn't matter! I just wanted to give away some new fun stuff that I've been working on. ;-)

There are so many awesome photos but I am in my favorite one! It was posted January 2, 2005. It is the picture of Julia, Eric, Max and I at mom's for Christmas; Julia's first Christmas with you. Julia's arrival was at the perfect time. She does not realize it but she really helped us through our mourning for Grandpa George during that Christmas season. What a wonderful addition she is to the family!
