April 2015


     The beginning of the month brought temps in the 70's, snow and the celebration of the Lord's resurrection.  On the day of celebration we watched our three youngest girls participating in an Easter play on the true meaning of Easter, the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.  Later in the day the kids did and egg hunt around the yard for 48 eggs stuffed with candy.  I got to eat the candy in the ones they couldn't find.  I guess I didn't hide them well enough as they found all but 2.

     A couple days after later the kids enjoyed a day at a home school tournament.  It was a fun day of various activities for the kids in which they could win ribbons.  Some of the categories included backing (done ahead of time), Piano (my wife helped judge this event),jump roping, writing of a story, penmanship, driving a remote control car, putting together a map of the US, etc. and then there was the big.....


SURPRISE!!!

      My wife, wondering why she was tending to be getting a little bigger, took a pregnancy test and - it was positive.....  I guess we are getting a replacement for the one who is getting married and moving out.  After a visit with the midwife later in the month, we decided to go with November 12th as the due date.  This will be child number 8 unless there is another surprise........

     The month of April also brought several red flag warning for fire danger.  On one of those days we lost power at the house due to the wind and several fire started, one which ended up burning over 400 acres in the state forest close to where the youngest got hurt sledding earlier this year.

     Being low on a few needed supplies, on the third Sunday of the on th we decided to head to Bemidji for the day to do some shopping and visiting.  As a result, we were even taken out to lunch by the in-laws.  I would say it was a great day.

     Well, Now that May is here, what kind of surprises do we have in store...
