spring is here!

Well, for the most part, I've been just making fabric postcards. I won the Lotto for February, so that was exciting, and got lots of new ideas. Around here it's been all about baseball and t-ball. The Trenton park is our 2nd home, lol. This week has been the worst: Monday - t-ball practice, Tuesday - 1 bbgame, Wednesday - double hitter bb game, Thursday - 1 t-ball game. Right now it's thundering out side, so Tuesday will have to be made up sometime, but instead of game it's Big Z's Spring program at his preschool, lol. With everything going on this week, Jeremy is in Austin. Did I mention all the Easter parties too? 3 dozen eggs are filled for parties! I will have to squeeze decorating Easter Eggs in somewhere, maybe Friday night?
I have started a garden and I am determined to grow something, lol. We have Zucchini, peppers (all kinds), brussel sprouts, tomato, watermelon, cantalope, strawberries, carrots, and corn. The eggplant, yellow squash, and cucumber have died. Today I bought beans and giant sunflowers to plant. I have 3 little raised beds that I started this year. I am not a gardener, but we had this inspiring lesson from Yo in RS. I am convinced that this is my year and "if I plant it, it will grow."
The boys are doing well. Scott is Scott, and some days I just have to accept that is who he is. I just wish other people would accept him too. I wish our school had more to offer him, but I'm grateful for Mrs. Baugh who is so good with him. I fear for 1st grade....will he continue to learn and get better or act like he's 4? Being a Mom is hard. I sometimes wonder what I did wrong or I should have waited to have Big Z and I could have spent more teaching time with him. How can just 1 of my children be so different? How can I expect more from him when he just RElearned the alphabet? He is learning fast and I need to keep up.
I love the 1 on 1 time I have with my boys. Today I took Michael to his dentist appointment. We went to Carl Jr.'s for lunch and he got a checkers game for a toy. We hung out and played a game, I had to read the instructions, lol, but he knew how to play. We love jamming out to music in the car together, too. Last week, we took Scott to a Dr.'s appointment. He had been getting on Red at school, so we were going to see if he had ADHD, but the pediatrician referred us back to the neurologist. Anyway, Jeremy went and we had a great time, just us. And he stayed on Green for a week after that! I think his body was just exhausted and needed lots of rest. And maybe a day off. Big Z is doing great, he's alot like Michael. Next year he will be in Pre-K, but the school is going through a lot of budget cuts, so we really don't know what's going to happen.
So, right now life is good. I'm getting know more mom's better, and it's good to get out. I will definately have an awesome tan after June as I'm out in it every Saturday for 4 hrs. Maybe, I'll out do my dad this year! Guess that doesnt really compare to every day in Delta Jct. Well, I guess that's it, I'll chat later!
