Spring Has Sprung!

We have been blessed with beautiful weather!
It's not all bad not having surgery today!
It was such a nice day- 65 degrees! 
 And it was such a pleasure to finally enjoying the fresh air and some outside play!

We still have some left over ice and snow on the north side of the house.

So then... what do you do?
You go sledding!

In shorts!

All of the children were filled with a refreshing energy!

It was such a blessing!

In fact Ava even...

learned to ride a bike today!

She was so ready and eager to try!

This is Ellie's bike.
Her bike is actually smaller BUT with training wheels.
We still need to figure out the bike situation at our house!

It's a little wet and sloppy BUT so so much fun!

I think we will have quite a few new bike riders this year!

Anna and Abby are quite bonded!
It is so cute... except when anna decides she wants to wear Abby's outfit!
Then Abby is totally baffled and comes up to me with a questioning look and says "Anna"?

Everyone is cheering Abby on! She can ride a tricycle BUT a bike is new to her!
It's all in the pedaling!

Ava also learned to jump rope today!
She was thrilled with her new talents!
We were too!

YES, Luke is looking quite short!
What a cutey!
He does have a cough, a clear runny nose and a low grade temp.
The Doctors made the right choice.
We are rescheduled for Wednesday, MArch 28th.
IF he is not doing GREAT by that time we will once again... reschedule.

God has a plan and we need to trust him.

Emma has smiled so much today!
Which of course makes me so happy!
The weather and activities have agreed with her!

We sat outside on the front patio and I read to the children!
Ahhhh, what a wonderful life it is!

I'm glad your kiddos enjoyed the fresh air & sunshine. We did too, but it was in the 80's here in Kansas.
Praying for all of you,

I just loved your "Spring has Sprung!" post... so beautiful, lovely outfits too, so colourful! :)

And may I ask what type of camera do you use? I have one but it always end up blurry.

(when you have someone ask you what type of camera you use, then you know that your pics are awesome :D )

Our weather has been beautiful too! Looks like you had a wonderful time outside enjoying it.
Praying for your little man that he gets to feeling better and is ready for surgery this next time around.

Oh my goodness...catching up on your blog. I will be praying for your sweet family (and I'll tell my dad is that Luke is having surgery!). I'll try to get in touch with a few of our Asian friends and urge them to get tested and join the registry. And yes...God can do amazing miracles. My brother in law needed a transplant and all three of his sons matched. None of them should have...it was totally amazing. The doctors are always talking about it.
