Family Matters

It’s a rare condition, this day and age,
to read any good news on the newspaper page.
Love and tradition of the grand design,
some people say it’s even harder to find.
Well then there must be some magic clue inside these gentle walls
Cause all I see is a tower of dreams
real love burstin’ out of every seam.
As days go by,
we’re gonna fill our house with happiness.
The moon may cry,
we’re gonna smother the blues with tenderness.
When days go by,
there’s room for you,
room for me,
for gentle hearts an opportunity.
As days go by,
it’s the bigger love of the family.IMG_1018IMG_1019IMG_1017
Anyone else watch Family Matters as a kid? Devin and I did. Y’all, it really is a great show! We are starting at season 1 episode 1 and watching them with the kids. (the lyrics to the opening song are above)

Recently we’ve had some fun! Charlie got to go to see the Harlem Globetrotters with Grandpa. They had a great time!!IMG_1040IMG_1080We have enjoyed our small group at church so much. Sunday we had lunch and spent the afternoon at the river.IMG_1067IMG_1066IMG_1065Oh my! For April Fools day last year Devin tricked the kids that their teacher called right before bed and said they were bad and didn’t finish their work so they had to get in the car in their pajamas and go to school to finish. As Devin was backing out of the driveway he told them it was a joke. Well, this year he made up this special bird the “giant blue-tailed falcon hawk.” He typed up a fake news article and told the kids it was migrating through SC on April 1. It was as big as a car and liked to eat orange honey bread. I called his phone and he pretended it was our neighbor saying they spotted one. So the kids made the special orange honey bread and ran outside. Devin is on the other side of the fence scratching and hitting it yelling that he had one by the neck. The kid flipped out!! Here are some pictures of the process. AC cried at the end when she found out it was a joke, but she quickly started laughing!IMG_1060IMG_1061IMG_1062We celebrated our sweet Parker’s 5th birthday.IMG_1054IMG_1052IMG_1049IMG_1048IMG_1047We picked our first batch of strawberries. Daddy went with us this year! We’ll be back next week for more!IMG_1046IMG_1041IMG_1045IMG_1044IMG_1043IMG_1042April is off to a great start! (well…minus the tornado watch and thunderstorms we’ve had today!) 😉

And just for my record…the snow cone picture above was taken after Anna Claire and Charlie’s 8 year old well visit. They are perfectly wonderful! 🙂 He is 53″ (86%) for height and 61 pounds (67%) for weight. She is 50.5″ (52%) for height and 57 pounds (50%) for weight.
