So then Spring Break arrived. We went to Victor's graduation from Vista that Friday and early Saturday morning Troy took Victor, Ethan and Ana with him to St. George for 5 days. I stayed home with Tanya, who had work, and Morgan who was supposed to get caught up on her schoolwork, her online classes that she took with in Argentina. Not too much of that happened other than 30 chapters of Seminary! Tuesday I asked the girls if they wanted to do something. They said they were going shopping. I asked if I could go because I had some returns and they told me they were picking up a tie for Tanya to send to Will for his birthday and then going to a movie. They were having some girl time. Sigh, I was sad for a few minutes, but then I was glad that they were excited to spend some time together. I love that they get along so well. So I had a very quiet day at home, a trip to costco where I got me some lunch and flowers and then went through the car wash. Not a bad day at all. I spent many hours over spring break scanning in pictures from before my digital camera days and scanning in what I could find of pictures I lost from my mac computer days. Still not an apple fan due to a couple years worth of pictures lost - that computer crashed twice in two years and they couldn't figure out why or save anything. So sad. Moving on....
Who knew that the Easter Bunny would come visit a house of teenagers?!? My mom found my old Easter basket, the blue bunny, from my childhood days and I wasn't sure what to do with it. But Ethan thought it was great and wanted to use it for Easter this year. Guess it will be around for Easters to come.
Ana had her state tumbling meet on the 11th of April. It was in at Salt Lake Community College. She did well. There were 31 girls in her age/level group and she took 17th. She had a great practice run and stuck her landing, but on both of her tumbling runs that she was judged on she struggled on her landing, but she did hold her three seconds even though they were rough landings. She's progressed so much this year.
... Then last Tuesday. Stacey Wesemann and I were setting up the church and running around getting food for the YM/YW etiquette dinner and the wind was blowing like crazy. It blew our heavy trailer down the driveway and our garbage cans over to the Fellers yard. And about 6:30 the wind stopped and the snow started to fall and fall and fall. Now I really do hope my fruit trees made it. We had about 10 hours at 30 degrees. I don't know if that is too long or not, we'll see this summer.
Tanya got asked to Prom! Super exciting. A guy in her seminary class named Jared. He took her out to eat and the sign and shoes were sitting in the bench at the restaurant. Ana made 30+ bracelets for one of her 10 hour young women personal progress projects and donated them to the girls in the shelter that the stake was taking blankets to this month. Good job Ana I know that they will love them.
Our cute niece, Maggie, was in the musical Hairspray. I just couldn't resist running up to Idaho, Ethan and Ana came along, to visit with Betsy and to see Maggie perform. She did a wonderful job and was the prettiest girl on the stage! Loved it. Lesli's family came and Sheree and her kids met us for dinner (at Panda Express) and came to the show too. There were 19 of us total and we took up
one whole middle row. It was fun to see the Keller cousins and to hang out and watch Maggie sing her heart out ; )
Sunday we made it home in time to visit with our sweet home teachers, the Olson's, and to Ethan's court of honor! Great weekend.
