So, we went to Lindsay's last Soccer game on Monday night. They were playing for the championship of the season against a team that had beaten them before. The teams were well matched, but our team had the ball on our end of the field more than not and we ended up winning 1-0. WOW! It really was a very exciting game but we were more excited that we won. Lindsay came very close to scoring twice and played an excellent game. Way to go team!

The kids have really enjoyed the turtles this year. Tiny has been a good sport to let the kids
pick him up and carry him around. Sadie and Mason are usually very careful with all the turtles.

Barney has been doing very well since the dog bite... He is healing well and his appetite seems to be good. I'm hopeful to be able to take the bandage off in another couple of months...

Spring is here!

Actually, living in AZ, I'm never really sure when Spring arrives, but it's April so it should be Spring...

We attended a Lacrosse game with Brian yesterday and even though they lost, we had a good time. Brian loves playing because he gets to hit other guys and he makes some great plays. He almost scored in a game last week, which is impressive because he is a defender and usually doesn't get near the goal. Anyway, he loves it and we love going to the games and watching him play.

We also regularly attend Lindsay's soccer games and enjoy that as well. She has been playing soccer since she was about 8 and has played on an adult co-ed team for the last 2-3 years.

We planted a garden this year and we must be doing something right! We cleared out a spot in our backyard that had rocks and some dead plants in it. It gets just the right amount of sun and we'll make some improvements in the watering next year, but for now it's been doing so well! We collect fresh lettuce and spinach every day and we've enjoyed the broccoli for the last week and a half. Next week we will dine on cauliflower and soon our tomatoes, zucchini, green beans and potatoes will be ready to harvest. We've had gardens before, but never this successful. I never thought in a million years that I could grow a cauliflower! There is a deep sense of amazement and accomplishment in watching the little tiny plants that we put in the ground a few weeks ago develop into food that is nourishing to our bodies and our spirits! I love it!
