Here We Go Again

April?!? Seriously, it's April already? I don't know about you, but I still have a couple of unfinished Christmas projects taking up space in my scraproom. I prefer to consider those projects as me getting a jump start on next year!! Yay ME!! How did it get to be April? The Brood continues keeping me on my toes with Scouts three times a week plus Sullivan in T-ball and the Bubba starts Spring football on the 29th. I can't think of anything better than teaching 3 and 4 year olds about the Bible every Sundaymorning than dragging ALL of my kiddos out to the football field for THREE HOURS immediately afterwards!! Yikes. What was I thinking?
Donk is getting ready to deploy with the Eisenhower battlegroup this summer. What does that mean? That means we've been busy fitting good quality family time in on the odd occassion he is actually IN town. The crew had Spring Break last week and Reagan & Sullivan enjoyed a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the Norfolk Tides ballfield. Oh my, did my little mini baseball player LOVE that! The kids are all looking forward to next month when they each get a Daddy Day all to them selves. They even get to play hooky from school. It's not every day you send your Daddy off to war. there has to be SOME consolation...
Last month when Donk went out to do some pre-deployment training on the Ike, he brought along a little stowaway. Meet Donk Stanley, Flat Stanley's brother. If you look closely at the picture above you can see the aircraft carrier in the distance as Flat Stanley "took controls" from Daddy.
Proud first grader here...
Love the details here from the oxygen mask to the flightsuit patches...
Still playing with paper & glue whenever I can steel away... I absolutely adored Studio Calico's Daydream Believer kit. My favorite one in a long time.

Hope you are taking some time to enjoy your special ones...
