April beginnings

April was a low key month with not much going on other than the normal routine of daily life.  

Here's a peek into the first couple weeks of April...

We celebrated Dane making all A's for the 3rd semester with a treat of his choice.  He wanted an icee from Target.  

We went to a German festival in Tomball.  It was insanely packed so my nerves were a little shot.  I don't do well in huge crowds when I have my kids with me.  I'm terrified that I'm going to turn around for a second and then lose them. So, I didn't get many pictures, because I had a death grip on Dane and Kevin and I took turns holding Jace because he wouldn't cooperate in his stroller.   Kevin enjoyed some german food, while Dane rode a few rides and played a couple games.  I rode the tilt-awhirl with him once.  I used to love that ride growing up, but I'm old now and one ride had me super dizzy and wanting to hurl. HA! Jace's favorite part was when we came up to a pen full of puppies that were hoping to be adopted.  He loves puppies!  

A whole slew of pictures of Jace hanging out different days while Dane was at school.  His hair was still a hot mess. 

Lunch dates at Dane's school is always a good time.  

This picture cracked me up with Jace being silly and Dane not camera ready. 
 Sweet brotherly love

Jace learned how to turn doorknobs, so that was fun.  We now have covers for most of our doors now. 

More Jace cuteness

Dane has turned into an excellent reader.  He found this book in Kevin's office and wanted to read it.  He loved the story line, the symbolism about Jesus in this book was a little over his head but it was a good read for him.  

Jace loving the baby chair at church. He was in my class on Tuesday mornings when I worked for our church. 

Silly Jace

Dane learned all about culture and heritage in his social studies class.  He had to do a short presentation and bring an item from home that he could show the class.  Dane talked about his great great grandpa who came over from Germany to Ellis Island, and wore this super silly apron from a German festival that we had from Kevin's dad.  The apron showed attire and food and drinks from that country.  He was a little confused and told his teacher that since his dad was German he used to wear this apron when he was little.  His teacher laughed and laughed when she told me.  She sent me a picture of him and a video talking to the class.  It was a super fun way for the kids to learn about heritage.  

I found this little gem in Dane's backpack.  2nd grade and it's already starting.  

And more Jace.
