Well, we've been staying busy with the normal routines of life and keeping up a new house. Last weekend, I went back to my hometown to play in the alumni volleyball game. I was extremely nervous about this since I haven't played in 13 years! Surprisingly, it wasn't has bad as I was imagining and we even tied for 2nd!! (I won't mention there were only 4 teams....). Anyways, it was great to see old classmates and friends I hadn't seen in awhile. While we were there, grandpa got the jeep going for the girls. Both Eva and Julia LOVE to be outside. Eva could literally be turning blue and she'd come inside kicking and screaming! When she first got in the jeep with Julia, I thought she was crying. Oh, no, she was actually BELLY LAUGHING!! She had a ball! So, we brought the jeep back to our house and we've gone on "walks" with Julia as the driver. I'll be glad when the weather decides to warm up enough so we can finally get the swingset and trampoline set up. I know we will be outside almost all day when the weather turns nice. After Rob passed away, my brother's work gave us a bunch of gift cards. One of the giftcards was to an indoor play park called Lost In Fun. So, this past Sunday, the girls, my nieces, and nephew all went there and they had a blast!! Eva walked around thinking she was so big playing with all the toys and Julia was running around with her cousins playing on EVERYTHING!! Nothing like getting all the energy out of the kiddos so they have a long restful night of sleep! :) Also, I thought this is so funny: Rob was very into cleaning. In fact, he cleaned more toilets and mopped more floors than I ever did! Well, one of Julia's favorite toys she got for christmas one year was a toy vacuum cleaner. Oh, I've been blessed twiced... I've discovered I've got another little merry maid on my hands! I'm not complaining....the more help the BETTER!!!!!
