Spring Has Sprung!

I just thought I would give everyone a little update on what we have been doing. Since the weather has finally warmed up, (yay!), I have been trying very hard to take the kids outside and let them play for a little bit. Well, I guess I should say let Cooper play because Sara hates the grass and the concrete! She just wants to be held. I am sure that when she finally starts walking, she will be chasing Cooper all over the place outside. So, I posted some pictures below from where the kids and I were playing in the backyard. As you can tell, in some of the pictures, Sara is not a happy camper! Cooper had a lot of fun playing with sidewalk chalk and picking mommy and Sara flowers. Sara, of course, wanted to eat her flowers.

On Friday, the kids and I went to our very first playgroup. I actually found the playgroup on Yahoo groups several months ago, but didn't have the courage to go until last week. Yeah, I'm a dork! Anyways, it is in Moses Lake and it meets every Friday morning. Of course, the day that I decide to go only one mom showed up, but that actually worked out pretty well for me. The other mom, Anne, had a little boy named Bryson who is 2 1/2 and a 10 week old baby girl named Lily. So, Cooper and Bryson played on the playground and chased each other around. While, Sara meanwhile, enjoyed the swings (and chewing on them of course!). It was really great to get out and be able to meet a new mom and make a new friend. Sorry, I didn't take the camera on Friday. I was rushing out the door and totally forgot about it. Anyways, I am really excited to get to meet more new moms and hopefully for Cooper (and Sara eventually) to make some friends. So, that's what has been going on in our little world the past several days. What's been going on in yours?

One more thing that I forgot to add. Bryce was offered the Interim Manager position at work. We hope that this will turn into a full time position. Hopefully, we will know more about the Interim position sometime this week. So, if everyone could please keep Bryce in your thoughts and prayers as the interviewing process for the actual manager position is very grueling. Thanks!

Hey! We're bloggin at the same time! ;) Yay for playgroups!!! Huge lifesaver for me! We have a great group that gets together over here every Tuesday and we try very hard not to miss it. It makes for a very long week if we do.

That's so great for Bryce! We'll definitely keep you both in our thoughts and prayers.

Cute pictures! Sara is an inside-girl after my own heart! :) We will definitely pray for you guys, interviewing is stressful! Wow, you're brave to go to a playgroup of people you don't know, that's great. I imagine it is nice to have "little" friends for your kids.

Playgroups are fun! You're brave to go, sometimes it's hard being the "newbie"...

Hope you are well and finding light in your life, despite rainstorms & cloudiness. ;)

You can do it. You really can.
