Heath and Bobby went on a two-night camp out with the RA's to Camp Kaleo. They stayed in tents, sat by the campfires, ate smores, and did boy stuff. They had competitions in BB guns, canoes, fire-building, archery, and many other things. Heath had so much fun and they both came home tired and very dirty!!!
Soccer is in full swing and the boys are having a ball!! Eli really understands this year and loves games....practice he is not to fond of but he loves a real game! I found out from the coaches wife that he was actually ranked the highest player on the team. (They do evaluations before the season to make sure the teams are as even as possible so that one team doesn't get all the good players.) I was shocked to find that out but was very proud of him at the same time. Heath is full force as always and his coach is trying to teach him to control himself so that he can control the ball. This will be a good lesson for him to learn because when they have the opening kick-off he goes as hard and fast as he can and sometimes misses good opportunities because he is trying so hard. So if it is Saturday morning or Monday evening you will find us at the soccer fields!!!

Heath's Art Project was chosen to be displayed at the mall for Youth Arts Month. Heath seems to love everything about school but when you ask him what his favorite thing at school is 9 times out of 10 he tells you Art. I was so happy for him that his work was chosen. There are 600 students at his school and there were 30 children's pieces chosen to display so I was so proud of him!

Chloe and Caroline at their pre-school Easter Egg Hunt!
The girls had an Easter Egg Hunt at school. Thank heaven Daddy was able to take them because I had the flu. They had lots of fun and practiced hunting eggs for several days after that. We then had an Easter Egg Hunt at church on the Saturday before Easter. The kids love the hunt at church because their are so many eggs to pick from. Heath learned his lesson from last year and he looked for the carrots but picked up eggs along the way too. We made our "Jesus" biscuits before lunch and enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend!
I can't believe that my baby boy turned six! He is growing up so much and becoming such a big boy. He had his birthday during spring break so he got to celebrate at school the Friday before, then got to open some presents on his actual birthday, and then have cake and ice cream and open the rest on Saturday. He was so excited about his birthday and kept asking me, "Am I six yet?" When I put his to bed on the his birthday night he asked me, "if I go to sleep will I still be six tomorrow?" Happy Birthday Eli....we love you!!
