Happy Easter

Easter girls
We had students over from saudi arabia, africa and kazakstan to share the easter story over greek food. this is the 3rd year we have done this and every year it gets better!
Kids joined us everywhere...i believe there were 15 kids along with the 25 adults...crazy good easter lunch!!
the men and women ate separately which is comfortable for those cultures..

In the AM the kids woke up to find the tomb empty...then they had to whisper to each other that Jesus was alive and go on a hunt for Jesus...they found him and we read the story over scones and chocolate was a great morning, i have to say!!

Yesterday we held our first easter egg hunt in our was so easy and fun for all!! Especially the maze that stew mowed in the fun!

March gives a new season!

gardening has been fun...we have been outside almost everyday and enjoying new projects around the house....we are enjoying it before the hot summer has been so relaxing and a relaxing enjoyment for stew and i both...

lettuce and spinach
lots of spring time flowers coming back from last year!

we have been praying for 2 yrs for families to come into our neighborhood...and slowly, but surely we are meeting neighboring families and dear friends are moving on our very street! we are so thankful and hope to make fridays, family time with all!!

one of the greatest and newest things is a date night co-op we are doing with dear friends....we get a free date every monday night and every monday night our kids get to play in their pj's with their friends...and once a month we get to keep all of is fun thankful for these families and friends for our kiddos!

new ways of learning and growing....we continue to be thankful for what God continues to do in our midst!
