Last week was spring break.  We had really great weather and house guests, two of my favorite things.  We went to the zoo with my sister and parents.  It was great.  Here are some pics from the day.

Some may not agree with this post, and I'm ok with that.  The Easter bunny did not visit our house this year.  We dyed eggs yesterday and will have a small hunt with them.  I did not buy an Easter gift and tons of candy for each of my kids.  I think this holiday has gotten way out of hand.  I think the focus has shifted way off course.  
We will be watching a video about Jesus on, watching Music and the Spoken Word, and generally try to focus on the true meaning of Easter, Jesus Christ.  I'm not trying to toot my horn.  I'm hoping that others feel the same way I do and we can start a revolution.  Who's with me?

Ben the artist

Ben loves to draw and paint.  He's always asking for paper to create new things.  He especially likes to draw out swords, color them in, then cut them out.  (Should I be worried that he likes to make weapons out of paper?)  Today since Granny was here, he tried his hand at painting.  Granny drew Iron Man on the canvas board and Ben painted it in.  The results speak for them self.
I'm so proud!
