There is a national tragedy going on, but no one seems to be reporting it. I'm sure you've heard by now about the states of South Dakota and New York vanishing into nothing. That's right; they have simply disappeared from the map. Also, the letter "s" is gone; no word yet from authoritie on whether or not it i related to the tate incident .
Now of course, if you live anywhere but our refrigerator, this is no big deal. After all, it's only Azx3's magnetic USA map and Azx4's LeapPad frig phonics that have suffered such tragic losses. However, to judge by the massive searches occuring as of late, you would think a national treasure or major population was lost.
We had a wonderful Easter. I'll put up pics in a couple of days - as soon as the postman has delivered his first. We all were dressed so nicely, which I think was the best part for me. It is such a treat to me to be able to dress everyone in coordinating clothes - something about that just screams "This is MY family!!!" and I love it!! We enjoyed church, and Azx3's SS teacher made sure to tell us that he knew all the answers to her questions that morning. As he is still in the 4-yr-old class, she was very impressed, and hoped we were able and willing to discuss Easter and any decisions he might want to talk about regarding it. Those of you that are praying, keep it up! Then we went to GrandMommy's house for a monster yummy lunch, naps for everyone in the house but Mama (ugh!), and an Easter egg hunt. Then we ran home, started making phone calls, gave the kids their Easter baskets, and Auntie K came over for supper and "Home Edition". All in all - a busy day! But one of the best: full of family, fun, and constant reminders of God's love for us. What more could you ask for?
Azx4 is turning more and more into a toddler - where has my baby gone? Tonight at supper, she demanded a napkin like the rest of us. As soon as we gave it to her, she promptly unfolded it, and placed it in her lap, looking at me like "See? I know what to do too!!" She also picked out the letter "A" from the frig when I asked yesterday! How super smart! Of course it was the only letter she picked out correctly, but hey, you gotta start somewhere right?
Azx3's soccer games start this weekend. It's a 5 and under league, so he should have a great time, I think. We have our first practice tomorrow night, so we'll find out all kinds of great things then, like what uniform color our team is, where games are, when practices will be, etc. I'll let you all know as soon as I do. (And if you did get a wierd email with a schedule, he's on the Rattlers. Sorry!)
