Spring is here, kinda….

Yea so technically it’s Spring here but the snow that we’ve been getting for the past week says otherwise. But, that’s Indiana for ya right?  I feel bad for all of the kids though because last week was Spring Break and we couldn’t really enjoy the outdoors like we normally do. But, we made the most of it. We spent Sunday at the Fairgrounds (pictured above) which ended up being pretty fun.  The kids got to see all types of animals and learn a lot about the foods we eat. We took a tour of The Chocolate Factory on Friday which was insanely chaotic.  I had two of the kids I babysit with me, no stroller because apparently mine was broken (found that out when we got to the Chocolate Factory) but it was still a good time.

Kira met her teeball coach last week AND daddy signed up to be assistant coach so she’s pretty excited about that.  She didn’t get to have her first practice though because of…..snow! All three of the older girls are practicing for the spring recital in gymnastics.  I didn’t sign Olivia up to participate because her attitude is way too iffy for me to be spending 50 bucks on…. Just keeping it real.  Some days she goes to class and she’s amazing.  Other days she has a complete meltdown if she can’t do something perfectly.  So, yea…. we’ll stick to regular classes for the moody three year old. 
Really grateful that IPA (Indiana Percussion Association) is over for Trey (my teenager) because I get to see a lot more of him.  I’m kinda freaking out though because his birthday is exactly two months away and I have no clue what to do for this kid. If you’re reading this and you have any ideas for a boy turning 15 please leave it in the comments.
Between him and the “super middles” (Caiden and Kaila) I’m at a loss. The super middles are really hard to find activities for. Caiden decided he didn’t want to do Taekwondo anymore but he wants to play soccer so we’re just waiting for that to start….and Kaila wants to play basketball this year so we’re looking for a league for her. 
I just wish time would slow down.  It seems like just yesterday they were all so little.
Ok, I need to stop before I get emotional.  Just wanted to catch everybody up with where we are in life.  Instagram is the best way to follow the day to day in this crazy zoo.  I’ll try to post more family updates on here as well.  Really looking forward to warmer weather and more adventures for The Krazy Eight!!
