Last Saturday was opening day for our little league. Elliott will be playing T-ball on the Dodgers this year, along with quite a few of our friends. Practices start this week and games will start mid May. It should be a fun and entertaining time that I'm sure you won't want to miss - a schedule will be posted as soon as I have one!

Our new driveway was finished late last week so we can officially play and drive on it now. We're so excited to have this new space for the boys and they're definitely excited about the promise of a basketball hoop in the future!

We've been waiting a few years to be able to do this and finally are able to get it done...we are paving part of our driveway! We figured it was time for the boys to have a place to ride bikes and shoot some hoops and I'm excited to say they'll be able to do both by the end of the week! Elliott and Jonas were fascinated watching the construction:

It seems that spring has finally arrived for real! We've had some beautiful weather the past few days and we are loving our outdoor time. Elliott has been begging to play with Play-Doh for a couple days now and I realized that would be a perfect outdoor activity. They had a blast and I didn't have to scrape the remains out of my carpet!

We've finally been able to spend some time outdoors without having to bundle up so much. Apparently that also means it's time to start wearing baseball caps instead of winter hats, and Jonas was very excited to find out that he has inherited his very own Aggie hat!

Malachi received awards last week for perfect attendance and A honor roll for the third grading period. We are very proud of his hard work and hope he can keep it up for one more quarter...he just informed me the other day that there are only 40 more days until summer break. Woohoo!!

This year we stayed home for Easter, and while we missed seeing our family in Tennessee it was nice to have a little downtime and relax at home. After church we went to Grandma Litter's for lunch with any of the family who could make it. They also had an Easter egg hunt which the kids loved!

All three of the boys were very interested in coloring Easter eggs this year. Luckily the weather cooperated and we were able to do it outside on the blacktop at GranMols' and Papaw's house. Malachi and Elliott had to work quickly to save eggs from Walker (who really liked throwing them and watching them bust open more than coloring them) and Jonas worked on one egg the whole time...well, except for the part when he tried to eat the dye! They all had blue hands and Jonas had a blue chin by the time we finished, but thankfully it washed off during bath time so we didn't have to go to church like that!

Malachi's final birthday present was a trip to the Cincinnati kids' museum. We invited his friend, Carson, and Elliott's friend, Cooper, to come along to make the trip even more special. The boys had a great time playing, exploring and learning new things in a fun environment.
Here's the group patiently awaiting lunch.
Malachi and Carson were excited to have some freedom to explore on their own a bit...you know, because they're 7 years old now!Cooper had fun driving the bus.
Jonas did his best to keep up with the big kids all day!
