Happy Easter!

We hope you all have a wonderfel Easter weekend! I know we will!! Tonight the kids are headed to stay at Grandma and Grandpa's house while we go to the George Strait concert and then tomorrow morning we'll meet and then head into Maxwell for the annual Easter Egg Hunt in there along with breakfast. We have never ending yard work to do at home and then Sunday is lunch at my mom and dad's with some family and then we're headed off to Marshalltown to have supper with Jon's whole family. Should be a great weekend!!  Enjoy these pictures I took of the kids this week in their Easter best!!

Weekend fun

We've had a busy last couple of weekends and with living on 18 acres and all the work we have to do outside (no one lived here for a year before we moved in) I don't see it slowing up at all this summer! Here are some fun pictures of the kids out helping us with all the burning we've been doing!  

 {Oh Jossy....always wanting to be one of the boys!}

 {Daddy had to rescue Sass from the fire/water!}

 {Joel is our skull collector...and with all the burning/digging we've been doing he has quite the collection!}

 {On the other side of the pond getting ready to set it on fire!!!}

Field trip to local businesses

Last Thursday the girls and I went with the boys on a field trip to the local businesses in Maxwell. They were studying "community helpers" that week and were asking each of the business how they were community helpers. It was a fun little field trip and the boys were glad I was there!!
