We had a lovely spring break doing nothing more than being home. It was good to lounge, to putter, to relax, with nothing pressing to do. One day we did go to see The Hunger Games. Annah read the first book about a week before we saw the movie and she was desperate to have the second one to read so we got that for her. In the meantime Abigail wanted to read the first book before we saw the movie. So Abigail devoured the first book while Annah devoured the second book and both finished their books about 30 minutes before we went to the movie! Of course, with the book so fresh in their heads they knew EVERY place that the movie varied from the book and they were sure to tell every last detail of what the movie left out! :) And the girls thought it was hysterical that I thought the boy in the movie was named Peter when it was really Peeta. (I didn't read the book) During the whole movie I thought Katniss called him Peter but she was saying it with an accent! If nothing else, I *am* good for a laugh! :)
Then it was Easter.... The girls got us ready by coloring and decorating the eggs with their friend Elizabeth. They did a wonderful job between the lovely colors and the drawings on the eggs.
Elizabeth, Annah and Abigail with their handiwork!
She's getting sleeeepppy...
A bowl full of fun! :)
The day after Easter (April 9th) Jordan came home from BYU-Idaho for his spring break. The bummer factor was that while he was on spring break, we had just finished ours so during the day we are all gone! But in spite of that, Jordan enjoyed his time home as much as we enjoyed having him. :)
When Jordan came home from Brazil (October 2011) he brought with him a handmade hammock. While home with us for his spring break he got out the hammock and jumped over the back fence that divides our yard from a big field that has seen everything from tobacco, to horses, to cows. In recent weeks there hasn't been anything back there so Jordan wanted to go find a place to hang his hammock.
Jordan jumping the fence...
With his hammock hung, he laid in it and played the guitar. :)
He laid out there for a few hours resting, playing music and napping.
It was a good thing that he did that the first day he was home because a day or two later these were in the field very near to where his hammock hung! :)
It's a lovely start to the day to look out our window and see a field of cows with their babies trotting behind them trying to keep up. (One day we counted about 15 babies!) Ahhh, springtime in Kentucky...gotta love it.
