My last post got a little interrupted by the big boy wanting to make paper stand up animals. He found a book that was given to us when Alex was born, something to give ideas of what to do with an older child. I've looked at it on and off, but Ryan has really gotten in to this now.

Anyway, what I really love about spring is being able to go outside and enjoy the time with the kids. It's great in wearing them out and they sleep like bricks. For the last few nights, they've gone to bed at a descent time and slept past 7am!! Woohoo for mommy!!

Here's just a few pics from our time outside.

A beautiful day

The first day of spring.

What could be better?

The sky is blue and the sun is shining ever so brightly.

Plus is doesn't hurt that UK is doing great during March madness.

This and that

So unfortunately I have failed in my blogging weekly yet again. I've had trouble uploading pics from my camera to the MAC so.... Now that I've gotten them on another I can post and send pics. Yipee!!!

The most important thing I can post about over the last few weeks is prayer. It is so different for everyone. Some choose to be all "God like" thinking that it is stronger and goes to God more. I on the other hand feel that if God is supposed to be like a best friend, I should talk to him whenever and wherever...and I do. No matter what the situation. But it is the prayer of a child that makes my heart swell and my eyes fill with tears. The other night, I put the boys to bed together because Ryan wanted to sleep with Alexander. As they were laying there side by side, I reminded Ryan he needed to say his prayers. Instead of just "saying" them, he rolled over, put his hand on Alex's chest, bent down to his ear, and said, "now I lay me down to sleep....." I just started bawling. I don't think I have ever felt such pride and love like that. I mean, what do you say to that? Thank you God for giving me the opportunity to teach my children in the way they should go. There is no greater gift in this world. We are so blessed.

Being blessed is just one of the many things I've enjoyed. Also, while the snow was out I decided to take a trip to Lexington Cemetary for some photography. Some were good and some were not, but I like to focus on the former. I thought I'd post a few. Hope you like them as much as I did.
