The Latest...

Well since Ruby girl is on puppy chow...she can't eat the dog food the boys are their food is up a lot of the time. To make sure they get time to eat this is what we've been doing. Qoen and Ace now eat their biscuits on the table, and yes that's a placemat/towel because Ace won't eat if he doesn't have some kind of fabric to chomp over! Without the rugs down in the kitchen on the floor, he takes a biscuit and runs into our bedroom (where there is carpet) to chew...then runs back to the bowl...and repeats this pattern.

And just for is the little lady enjoying this sunshine we've been having!
She is getting big...growing like a little weed...and for whatever reason, still waking up before 7:00 am regardless of what day of the week it is!

I am excited to be back in class every Tuesday night, it's nice to feel like a learner again! Ben LOVES coaching track! (I think I even heard him say he likes it even more than teaching!?) He's got a small group of kids, but with this weather how could it be anything but enjoyable!? It's official now, he signed his first contract (for coaching) and he is a regular employee for the Nooksack Valley School District! We feel like this is a step in the right direction and are excited to see if God will have coaching will be a more regular job for Ben in the future.

AND 43 more days of school (for Nooksack) until SUMMER break! ....and then summer school!

So far...

I'm already behind on my Thursday evening postings! But...I did an extra last week so I'm feeling okay about it! That pergola that we put up for Grams and Pops last Saturday...didn't survive the wind storms we had this week! Pops is hoping that he can order some replacement parts to fix it, but Ben's not sure if it's fixable. :( Huge bummer!
We had a great Easter! We went to Ben's Aunt Dawn's for a visit with his family, we were able to catch up with Rich and Tanya...which was WAY over due! It was very low key and relaxing! After Ben's family get together we headed over to mom and dad's to have an egg hunt with Landen and have dinner with both sets of grandparents and Kate and Darren. Landen was hilarious on his egg'd never know he had no competition...because he was still RUNNING from egg to egg and throwing them into his bucket as fast as he could! He kept saying "Come on grandpa grandpa...more eggs!" Dad was able to keep up with the two year old this year...but I dunno about next year...Landen seems to get faster and faster, and dad well...he's not quite as fast! :)

Landen's favorite "treat" from his egg hunt was his dinosaurs...! He put his playing on hold for a quick picture! (thanks buddy!)
