Lots going on!

We are going house hunting today! In fact, we may be offering on a house already today b/c the houses in our price range are going FAST! YIKES and YIPPEE!

We had a very nice Easter Sunday here in Tucson. Mike sang for all three services and I played hand bells for one. We relaxed at home while K napped, did an egg hunt for K and then had a feast at a friend's house for supper. It was a beautiful sunny day!

This past week two of my college friends came for a visit. We slept very little, laughed A LOT, explored Tucson, and then drove up to the Grand Canyon with Mike and K. It was so strange to be further north in AZ b/c it looked a lot like WI with trees all over and cooler temperatures. In fact, it snowed a few times the two days we were up there and K had a BLAST playing with it. The Grand Canyon was beautiful. We saw just a tiny portion in the 4 hours we were there. Mike really wants to hike down into it. Not me! :) We stayed overnight in Flagstaff and had a nice morning there on Friday. I am blessed with some very wonderful friends!

The next two weeks will be life as usual and then K and I are flying to the Midwest to visit my parents! We are both very excited!!! My sister and my sis-in-law and niece are going to be there too! I am very much NOT a fan of flying so I get nervous about that part, but I know it will all be fine. Grandpa promised K a visit to Chuck E. Cheese while we're there so he's looking forward to that! :)

Easter Sunday


My first glimpse of the Grand Canyon

Yep--it has snowed for every Spring Break we can remember!

Loving the snow!

Homeless and loving it!

Well, we have finally sold our house in Neenah! It was all supposed to have been done on March 26, but there were many crazy things that occurred causing many delays. It's all over now and we can happily move on to buying a house down here now! :) We have a wonderful realtor who is going to start showing us houses next week.

Next week two of my college friends are coming to spend a week with us. Mike has spring break too! We are going to get manicures and check out downtown Tucson. Then all of us (Mike and K too) are going to drive up to Grand Canyon and spend some time up there! We are in desperate need of a break so I'm looking forward to a commitment free week!

K continues to be an ever constant source of entertainment for us. He questions us about everything that is said on the radio, TV or in conversation. He is really into writing letters and saying random letters and asking us what he just spelled. Of course, the cars and monster trucks still hold his interest too. He and I are going to visit my parents in IL the first week of May so he is looking forward to another airplane ride.

Tomorrow we are taking K to a easter egg hunt at the park. Hopefully the wind is gone by then or the eggs are going to be blowing around instead of sitting on the ground. It has been incredibly windy here for quite some time now. I hope it doesn't last much longer! The cacti are starting to bloom as well and it is a beautiful sight!

We pray everyone has a blessed Easter! He is risen! He is risen indeed!
