Last weekend of April update {the one with snow, gymnastics, a musical, and sewing}

Hi friends!

It's been a while since I've updated the family blog. Between some health issues I've been dealing with and then a few of the kiddos getting sick themselves, I haven't had much left in me to update the blog. However, we are all on the mend so I'm back at it...still trying to get on a consistent schedule, but back at it, for sure!

 To catch up, here are a few things that we did this last weekend:

Even though our kids are homeschooled, they participate once a week in the Options program.  This program is offered through the public school system here in Colorado for homeschoolers.  Our younger children mainly take enrichment type classes, and our older kids have a mix of academic and elective classes.

Our youngest son has taken music/drama class this year, and on Friday, they shared a musical production of Jack and the Beanstalk.  It was very cute, and we were all impressed with how well the children sang and performed!

That same Friday was also a snowy day here in Colorado.  While most of the country welcomed the month of May with spring like weather, we in CO welcomed May with snow.  That's Colorado for you!

We knocked snow off of the grill and grilled some hamburgers anyway!

Saturday morning was the usual of gymnastics for Abby.  Then we pretty much puttered around the house all day.  I've been wanting to make some cloth napkins to replace the worn out ones we used previously.  I made about three until the thread on my bobbin messed up, and I walked away for a while.  I'll probably share about these napkins on my other blog soon.  They are double sided and super thick.  And very easy to make.

Sunday morning was church with a lot of jokes by everyone about the cold, gloomy, snowy weather on May 1st.  Coloradans aren't surprised by such weather, but we transplants sure are!

That afternoon Abby had a a gymnastics expo.  She is currently on the gymnastics pre-team which is the team getting her ready for the team.  She's doing very well.  Her best events are the floor routine and the bars.

She loves gymnastics and I love being able to see her do her thing.

When we returned home on Sunday, we were tired!  David and I settled in for a viewing of the second Hunger Games.  (So good!  Now we need to see the last two.)  And we all just spent time around the house doing a little this and that.

Life is good here in Colorado.  How about where you are?

Be sure to check in the next few days...we've got a birthday...and a field trip to share!
