Kite Flying!

Another fun Spring Break activity was kite flying. It's been quite windy lately, and we live right around the corner from our church, which is one of the few areas with no trees (we were on the baseball field). Stone and Emerson had a blast flying kites while Knox kicked a ball around. It was a blast until Emerson's kite flew away with a big gust of wind. Needless to say, after many tears were shed, a new kite was promised, and she has since received it.

The Zoo!

We filled Spring Break up with fun activities and outings every day. Among our fun was the zoo in Tyler. We went with some friends, and the kids had a blast. The petting zoo area was their favorite. Emerson wants to be a vet when she grows up. She has such a tender heart for all things furry.

Stone's new bike!

Stone has been asking for a new bike for quite a while. Emerson got a new one for her birthday, and his was about the same size. He looked like a circus bear on a little bike. We gave him certain jobs to do in addition to what is expected of him around the house, and he finally earned a new bike. He's been without training wheels since he was four, and it was time to move him on up. He rides his bike any chance he gets.
