School Daze

This week is the last week of class. I can't tell you how glad I will be when Micah is done with this semester. It has been real difficult because this class is very time consuming. I see Micah for literally 30-40 min. every day, which is barely enough time for family dinner. He works nights and so the weekends are really our only family time we have. However, with finals approaching, Weekends have been taken away now too with lots of studing at school. I try not to complain too often because I know that he is doing what he needs to do and so I try and be supportive, but its difficult.
Micah did talk with his counselor last week and he has only two more classes to graduate which he will be taking in the summer. Halelujah! However he won't be able to do the whole graduation ceremony thing until next spring 2010. After nearly 10 years he won't be a student anymore!
I am so proud of what he has accomplished. It has been a struggle at times, but we kept having to remind ourselves that it is worth the sacrifice. I don't think I could have done what he has done all these years. I know he has lost out on alot of sleep over the years and has worked really hard at his schooling, job and of course home. He definatly is SUPER DAD!
Some day in the future, we can look back at this time and laugh at how we managed it and survived for so long. As for now we are taking it day by day.

Sunday Bike Ride

It was such a nice day yesterday. We had just purchased a bike trailer and decided to take the girls out for a ride. When we put Hillie in the Trailer, she freaked out and wanted to get out. She screamed and cried for help but once Micah was moving, she seemed to enjoy it. We are still trying to get Elsa excited about riding her bike. She has been very cautious and scared and so with all of us going out, we hope it will build up her confidence and we can eventually try taking the training wheels off. We are looking forward to alot more warmer days.

Easter Weekend

Coloring Easter eggs

Easter Morning, they found all the eggs!

The girls in their Easter dresses. So pretty!

Later we went with the Wybrow family to the Park and had a picnic. Oma gave easter baskets to all the grandchildren. It was pretty windy, but can't complain. It was a great day and alot of fun.
