Oh yeah...another milestone, another little giveaway!

My previous post, "Signs of spring in Michigan" was my 1000th post. I would have never guessed that I would have posted that much. I had no vision that the blog would have continued as long as it has. Who would have thought that people would want to read about our little family!

Sooo...I've decided to hold another small giveaway in honor of that. I'd like to ask my readers to give me their favorite "Ladybugs and The Red Thread" moment. Whether it's a picture, something I've written, something you've learned or just plain laughed at...I want to hear it. Please make your comments under the "Signs of spring in Michigan" post. I will be running this through Friday, April 4th. Then Wayne, the kids and I will be making our final selection and I will post the winner (or maybe winners!) on Saturday. :-)

Good Luck!

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.

As trees, plants and grass come to life, so do Cam and Anna's allergies.
Weddings, bridal showers, 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.
