We drove him to the airport Sunday afternoon and late today we got to talk online. He looked really good for someone who was on a plane over 14 hours.
Sadly Ken will miss the concert we had tickets to, Mariana's Trench. I asked my friend Brenda if she wanted to go with me, and she was like, 'Sure! Who are they?' haha. Ah well, we will have fun... I've emailed various links to videos so she can get more familiar with the music but its a night out so I am sure we will enjoy it regardless.
Today was the 13th year since my mom died. I found myself very numb to it this year. I don't know if that is because Ken left yesterday and I am tired from 2 weeks of spring break craziness or what, but I found myself sitting at her grave with not much to say. We brought her some roses and had a quick photo via the phone.
Easter was amazing this year at church, a real celebration. Pastor Lee had some wonderful visual ideas to make it a real party and when you drop over 200 balloons on people it tends to help.
The blooming cross, I loved the bricks at the base that tied into the story that was read for the kids.
We had Easter baskets at home for the kids.
Ariel was excited to receive her first Bible! She is busy reading it and was eager to show it off on Sunday morning.
A few shots for our Easter card, the kids are really looking more grown up these days.. a tad shocking.
Xander has just lost all his chub in the past month, looking more like a little boy. His feet also grew, his toes popped out the front of his sneakers, making us go find a new pair quickly, haha.
Here is the little man in his new shoes with his hair cut, thankful we could get him in before Easter.
Speaking of Xander, we visited our new dentist and we FINALLY got him to sit in the chair, and even have a full cleaning. It was amazing, and he happily watched tv while holding his new green toothbrush. The new office is great, and the people there were fantastic with the kids... a far cry from where we were at. Enough said!
So the lunches and snacks are packed for both kids to return to school tomorrow. Looking forward to some quiet time to myself... its been awhile.
