5K Runners

Shelly and John participated in our local GoFar 5K run on Saturday morning. They both did a great job and Lily and I had fun cheering them on during the race.

Ready for the race!

Here's What's Happening

I haven't updated the blog in awhile. So, here's what been happening. 

Last weekend Lily spent quite a bit of time working on her World History project. She wrote a research paper on Princess Diana's charitable contributions and she completed a rather detailed visual aid to go along with it. We all signed a breath of relief once the paper was completed and the project was turned in to her teacher.

My dad was hospitalized on Sunday and will hopefully be able to go home today. While he was in the hospital, my sister spent her time updating us and being there for my dad. 

Shelly and John are preparing for a 5K race that they'll participate in tomorrow. 

And in less important news, Daisy has started an Instagram account. Her name on Instagram is lechatdaisy and she'll be adding photos of her day to day activities.

At the end of our five days in Virginia Beach for Spring Break, we had a nice brunch celebration at my sister and brother-in-law's house. 

Here are a few photos from our Easter morning and brunch.

Spring Break

We spent our five Spring Break (we lost several days of the break due to snow) in Virginia Beach.

We love to be able to see so much family when we're there. It's always busy and fun.
