Well, we are continuing our reading.  We just keep practicing, and the practice is paying off.
All three kids are getting better every day.
Thanks to all of you that shared ideas on reading.
 Most kids that are 7 don't have to do tummy time, but not the case in our house.  Quinn did not use to like it at all, and now she does it like a champ.  Denali had to get down and talk with her, while she was working.

 A few pictures from a bit ago, I walked into Quinn's room and found them cuddling.  To sweet.
We are starting to figure out summer activities, and already I am thinking we are not going to get through what I hope to, but we will be busy.  

Thanks to Chrissy, I found a great summer education program we are going to do.  If any of you need ideas,
It looks great because there is not a lot of writing, so that will be great for Quinn.  The price is doable as well.  So lots of learning and lots of fun will take up our summer.

What a weekend!
Today we are watching our copy of Frozen!
The girls talked and decided to use their allowance to buy Frozen.
Listening to their giggles as they watch the movie are wonderful!

 We got to go to Annette and Ben and Chrissy's to have a nacho party.  That was fun.

 We also went to Shailee's birthday party.
 Isaiah and Denali got to skate for the firs time.
They were on the ground more then on their skates, but they just kept getting up and not giving up!
I'm so proud of them for that.

Today, Quinn and dad stayed home from church.  She is snotty and needed to rest.  Isaiah and Denali and I went to Sunday School, and then out to run a few errands.  Isaiah mentioned how he wished Quinn could have come with us.  That just makes me feel so good.  I always worried that all three kids would accept and love each other, and so far, I have not had to worry at all.  I love how all three of them love each other and thank God for that every day!  
Blessings to you!
Thanks for checking in on us.

A few pictures to catch up on.
Denali had her first pedicure.
She loved it, and I would not have expected anything less.

We got matching watermelon toenails.
 We did that right after dance class.  Denali is still loving dance class.

 Quinn choose to stay home with Grandma and Grandpa.

 Isaiah choose to play with Kaleb.  So it was a win win all around!
Then later in the week, Grandma Martha sent me a picture.
I show so many of Denali and Quinn, so I had to add in,
Isaiah and Grandpa get their time in with Quinn as well.

It was a big day!
Baptism day for Denali and Isaiah.
 Cousin Kaleb joined us for the big day.
 Along with both Grandpa Steve and Grandma Vicki.

 Miss Cindy made us another beautiful cake!

Grandma and Grandpa Nelson also joined us on our special day.
 Along with Aunt Sarah and Uncle Brandon.  They are now also the kids Godparents.

 Thanks to Chrissy for taking such great pictures!
 What a wonderful baptism.
Then the celebrating begins!

 Finally Quinn talked to Pastor Lux.  She had to start out by telling him about her underwear and her fart noise on her machine.  Isaiah and her have a warped sense of humor.  Then she talked his ear off.

 Everyone had to have their time with Ben.  

  A party is never complete without an injury.
 Is a party every complete without fixing something as well?

Finally, ending the party out, by reading some of the bible stories out of a few of the bible books they received.
Ironically as we were reading one of their stories tonight, it was 

1 Corinthians 13 

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

The story told us to insert the names of our kids into where it says love, and all three of them thought it worked out very good.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  We are blessed.  Life is not easy for any of us, but we preserver and our family sure is filled with love.

Blessing to all of you!  What a wonderful spring break we had over all.
