We have had some wonderful Spring weather here lately! Hooray!
A couple weeks ago Russell and Grant participated in a no-contact football clinic for three days. Russell came home from school with the flyer and was adamant that he wanted to do it. The clinic was for K-3 graders so I signed Grant up as well. He wasn't sure he wanted to do it but ended up loving it!
I thought this was so sweet of these boys during the water break.
Grant was quickly favored by the coaches. When he arrived on the last day the coach said, "There he is- there's my BYU QB!" (One of the boys had worn a BYU shirt one day) In fact, the one time they picked a kid to be the quarterback, he picked Grant. Then at the end when they were playing a game, the coach threw it repeatedly to Grant. Here is Grant catching the pass and running in for a "touchdown."
I looked into the local junior football league-aaaaaand all the games are on Sunday. So we won't be doing that.
To my delight, they offer Vocal Solo and Duet festival events here. Seth and Brenna each entered the Vocal Solo event and sang together in the duet event. They received Super Superior! They really enjoy singing.
Meet out favorite horse Sandy. She lives at one of the local grocery stores and costs only one penny to ride her. Sydney has ridden her several times but this was the first time Elise braved her.
It is a happy day when the baby in the house can feed herself (well, more or less feed herself)
Our little fruit trees are leafing out. I thought we didn't have any blossoms this year, but there are two on our peach tree! And actually, the apple trees will soon be full of blooms!
On Saturday Seth, Brenna and Grant competed in a Bach Competition put on by the Bach Chorale to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The contest was divided by age: 3-4 grade, 5-6 grade and 7-8 grade. It offered a $100 first prize and a $50 runner up prize. While it wasn't Grant and Brenna's year- Seth won! He, of course, is flying high! As a winner he gets to perform in the Bach Chorale concert this Saturday. I am so proud of him- he worked very hard. And let me tell you, it is a wonderful thing for a mother to hear the words, "Oh it was so worth it! Thanks so much, mom!"
This cute boy will be turning nine years old soon! I took this photo in an attempt to make a baseball card birthday party invitation. We will see if it works out :)
That is all for now. I hope everyone is enjoying Spring!
