April is known for "showers" ... while there has been rain, there has been a LOT of snow this year, many overcast and gloomy days. Everyone is hoping that warmer weather will come soon. I was a bit blog crazy of late ... lots of posts this April! Here's a little wrap up for the month:
- Friends and Family: We had seen the cousins at Easter activities, but then we had Will and Addie over on Friday, and Adria and Rella over on Saturday. The boys had fun playing with their cousins (Mom and Dad went out to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Shane and Aunt Alicia). And with the kids off track, we've had LOTS of friends over almost every day.
- Room Ramifications: With the successful switch of the bedrooms, we've seen some other changes ... Keaton now showers downstairs (instead of in Mom and Dad's bathroom ... YEA!), of course now Landon uses the upstairs shower (previously only used for little boy's baths) but Landon has been keeping the bathroom and bedroom clean. I wasn't sure if he'd actually be able to sleep in the bed (he has had a "roommate" for the past 12+ years) but it's been all good. One other funny thing to note is Colton's clothing choices ... the little boy who wore just jerseys for the past few months is now wearing a variety of clothes! Previously, he couldn't reach the items hanging in the closet (polo shirts, long sleeve shirts) that are now within his grasp, and those are what he's been choosing to wear.
- Loads of Laundry: We got a NEW dryer (actually NEW, not just new to us ... and I'm filing the receipt for warranty purposes, as we've had such bad luck with appliances!) While no one really likes doing laundry, not being ABLE to do laundry is SO much worse! I was honestly ecstatic about being able to wash (and dry) clothes again! And I actually got caught up a bit quicker than I would have thought!
- Saturday Sports: There weren't any sports over Easter weekend, but we were back at it all soon after. Of course Cooper wasn't going to be able to play soccer (just two weeks since the break), but his game was canceled anyway due to SNOW (again!). Hopefully it will be rescheduled later in the season when he might be able to participate. Colton's game was canceled (but he'd had one on Monday and he did GREAT ... I don't have a video yet, I'll probably just make one for the season). Basketball games go on no matter the weather. Both boys won. Here's the highlights... Callahan's Game, Keaton's Game.
