Last month Dave’s sister Julie came to town. And when Julie comes to town it is always a party. Although I only got a couple in the picture, everyone showed up to watch Max play volleyball: And Claire was so delighted that she had some great cheerleaders at her soccer game too. We had a girl’s day out and celebrated one sister’s birthday (in the middle…love you Laurel!) During the month of March we have birthdays galore (all the red marks at the top of the days below are birthdays…seriously, is that a lot in one month or am I kidding myself??) We got together for cake and ice cream to celebrate a few of them: I love when we get these girls together: …and the truth is, it happens more when Julie’s around (thanks Julie!) We stole them from school and went to lunch with them for one of their birthdays too… Thanks for the party you bring, dear Julie! Let’s bring it on again in June!

some pieces of my heart joining up in Texas
When Max and Abby realized that they were going to be in the VERY SAME CITY as Grace at Christmastime, they got permission to go see that sister of theirs….
Nana came to visit from Idaho over Halloween. She sure knows how to show us a good time. Mostly she just gave us her time, which means so much.Aside from…
You seem so organized on your calendar! Could you post about what you write on your calendar and how you organize yourself each day because I feel like I could use a little advice in that area.
I thought I had a lot on my google calendar until I saw yours!
Joy all around!
Thank you so much for showing us your calendar. I had no idea the Google Calendar was so easy to use! I use it for everything now and love that it syncs with my phone so I can view it on the go. I feel so much more on top of things now! Thanks again!
