Lately...

I've not had much to say on the ol' blog lately.  The thoughts are there, swirling around in their usual place, yet not quite ready to fly off the ends of my fingertips.  To be honest, there really hasn't been much time to sit down and just write.  I often get the urge, though, and I imagine for a second that I'm one of those people who says, "I just need to go for a run."  Except that I'm not, and my happy place is in the form of putting fingers to the keyboard, not feet to the asphalt.  I'll get back there soon, I'm sure, but in the meantime, I can at least document what's been going on lately.

-Last weekend, we hosted some dear friends of ours for a long weekend.  This is the same family we went to visit in Ohio last fall, and it was unbelievably good to spend time with them again.  We were able to celebrate my birthday while they were here, too, and that meant so much to me!





-March got a little confused and went out like a lion with the most impressive hail storm I've ever seen! We were amazed by it and stood outside watching those little pellets shoot down from the clouds.  It was crazy!




-On Thursday of this past week, Jeramie got off of work a little early to kick off a long weekend of family togetherness.  I named it our "staycation" and it did not disappoint! We have been a blur of activity lately, doing things with and for others, and we've neglected to spend time with the most important people ... each other. 

Our fun started on Thursday night when we attended the town of Cary's special needs Easter egg hunt.  It was perfect - well organized, not crowded - and was just what my boy, with his special arm, needed.



On Friday, we took our time waking up, then spent the morning dyeing Easter eggs...



...which Jeramie later hid, fresh out of the dye.


After a quick lunch, we headed to one of our indoor city pools for our first swim of the season.  Ethan still needs quite a bit of reassurance in the water, so I'm hoping that with lots of practice he'll become more and more comfortable as the spring and summer months continue.


He sure does make practice look cute though, doesn't he?!

Saturday and Sunday each deserve posts of their own - we took a short trip to a special place on Saturday, then celebrated the mess out of an empty tomb on Sunday.


I'll be back later, but consider yourselves updated on what's been going on lately.
