It's Wednesday! Humpday! April Fool's Day! I could post something foolish, but I'm not feeling too creative right now!
It's been over a week since I've posted... and what a week it's been!
Last Monday we did indeed evict the tenants in Art's rental house. It was a very hard and uncomfortable day. But that past is over and we are moving on. Art is set to work on the house and fix it up- and he is in his glory! He has always wanted to do this and so it's very exciting. It is a very cute little house.
They left a lot for our to dispose of, so we still have to go through the contents of the attic and the garage and the basement. OY!

Other than that we've had a usual week.

Will turned 10 on March 25! To celebrate we took him to his favorite restaurant, the Old Country Buffet! Grandpa Bill, Grammy and Wally also came to celebrate with us. We gave Will a bag with 10 things (10 pencils, 10 candy sticks, 10 packs of gum, a $10 bill, a "ten"ticals toy, jacks with 10 pieces, the game phase 10, 10 pack of pokemon cards, 10 dice, and a scratch off ticket that had something to do with 10) and also a new bowling (10 pounds!!!) He also got some money, and is saving up for the new DSi.
His birthday party is on April 11-- bowling of course!!
Speaking of bowling, it is over now. Art and I bowled with the boys on the last day. Will is set to play a summer league, Colby is not.

Baseball for Colby will start soon, softball for Sam starts Monday. We need new cleats and gloves and a bat!!!

Colby did the Lip Sync show on Sunday. They did "Rubberband Man" by the Spinners. They were so cute!! Some fellow moms made their costumes... and he had great afro wigs that were really the hit of the show!! They did great. And Colby absolutely loves the wig! He wore it to school today for "bad hair day".

Samantha has been sick today and yesterday so she is home. Poor kiddo! A fever and just feeling yucky. It's sad to see her like this.
Will is good. Has an appointment tomorrow to get his eyes checked then get some new glasses, it's been a while.
Colby is doing good... can be a sweetheart when he wants to be, and a monster when he doesn't.
Owen is getting bigger every day! He is SO CLOSE to crawling. It's only a matter of time now. But no sitting up. He's not interested in that!! He is reaching for toys now and playing with them though.

The other day it was 60 so the kids decided it was HOT and got on their bathing suits and set up the sprinkler! I had 11 kids here! They were on the trampoline and sun bathing-- silly kids! It was fun though. Gave me a glimpse of what summer will be like!!

Keep Sarah in your thoughts (the girl I babysit) she had to have surgery today on her hand-- she cut it really bad and cut some tendons...

Happy April!
