We had a wonderful Easter weekend. We were lucky to have Lane off this year. We went to the park on Saturday. Davis and Elliot had their class parties during the week. We dyed Easter eggs and the Easter Bunny brought everyone flip flops and Crocs :) We had a big cousin egg hunt at Grammy & Poppy's house on Easter.

This Spring break we tried to do a couple of fun things. We took the kids to Alley Cats. They were able to bowl, play arcade games and have a hot dog and drink. They were in heaven. Lane also camped out in the front yard with the kids. We've been trying to do this forever, but it's never worked out. They had tons of fun. We did smores before going to bed. We also went to the park a couple of times and got snow cones.
Elliot's First grade put on a musical that included a bunch of Disney movies. She was an elephant. Her friend, Gracie, was Mary Poppins. She had a part from The Jungle Book: "In the movie, Baloo the bear, reminds us all to forget about your worries and your strife, and concentrate on the things that really matter." She did such a good job and said it with expression and everything. We were so proud!

We officially put our house on the market 2 days ago. We've lived here such a short time, but feel it's the best decision for our family. With a house this size and the land that comes with it, there is A LOT of upkeep. We hire a ton of stuff out, but even with that, Lane always has a long to do list. And since his job is very demanding, there is just no time. There will be plenty about this house I will miss. The biggest probably being the large yard that the kids can play in. They are constantly outside climbing trees or riding their go go car around the property. They've also had fun on our tree swing and zip line. We know we will be giving all of that up when we move. We'll also miss our pool. Oh how summer just won't be the same. The pool made a huge difference to us this past summer. Even though it was the hottest one on record, we didn't feel it because we were always in the pool. Most likely our next house will not include a pool. Fingers crossed that we can get a quick sell and a good price. The market is really good right now, but it will take a specific buyer that wants land and to be in Burleson. All the stars need to align.
