Ahhhhh...SPRING:)

The disassembled swingset in the back yard... It doesn't look like much, but there really are a lot of pieces there:), and up along side of the house.



We have had a beautiful week here in Oklahoma. It was 85 degrees yesterday.
The menfolk in the house, and that includes the littler menfolk, have been busy at work with a swingset deal we found on Craigs List. WOW! It will be amazing when it is done... but it will be a lot of work. When Greg got home after taking it apart and pulling it with the trailer, he looked at me with a smirk on his face and said, "I hope our children know how much we love them." I think he was just a little tired...:) I will try to post a picture after we get it up.
Have I told you I really like Craig's List? Just a couple of weeks ago, we also traded for a guitar for Louis to use for his lessons.
Today the boys spent almost the whole day restaining the outside of it... they were troopers and worked really hard for a really long time. I think we are expecting rain tomorrow so we wanted to get a coat on and maybe we will do the inside once it is up. I am really looking forward to having it for the kids to play on. Really it is probably more of a gift to me than the kids...haha! Being home all the time homeschooling, we really wanted to have some fun outdoor stuff for the kids, especially the littler ones. I know this will bring loads of enjoyment to our kids... it is a HUGE blessing.
Not much else is new... looking forward to Good Friday sevice at church tomorow night.

That does look like A LOT of work, but the kids will LOVE it when it's finished!

The beautiful weather is happening here in GA too! And I'm so happy because it always rains on our spring break!

Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

Love,
Tonya

Hi Sara,

Tonya's told me about you and how great you are! I just looked at some of your posts (I've been here before) and I must say that I agree! You have a beautiful family! I'm sorry for your loss of Samuel. We lost our Brooks in 9/09.

Just wanted to say hi and tell you how cute your sweet boy is!
