6th grade Science Project

Vance did a great job on his sixth grade science project. We picked a pretty simple project because he sort of forgot to tell me about it during spring break!! :)  We still had two weeks though, so we did fine. Vance is such a smart kid. I was very proud watching him, and talking with them about all the aspects of why the planes flew or didn't fly as well, and how we should arrange things. I love my little man! 

Our Visit to Grandma Zola

It was so nice to see Grandma Zola during spring break this month. We went down with Kjell on some jobs in Portland. We visited some of our old homes we lived in, and even dropped by Vance's elementary school and got to see his teacher that he had for kindergarten and first grade. He loved that!! 
It was really hard seeing Grandma this way, she is very tired. Kjari and her really hit if off, it was so cute, they were dancing together!  It was really special to see. The boys were a little nervous, but I think it was good for them. I stayed for an extra hour alone and Kjell took the kids back to Aunt Linda's house. It was bitter sweet. It is hard seeing someone you love in front of you, but not sure if they really know you are there. Kjell gave her a blessing before we left. She did not want us to go, adn that was heart breaking. I love my Grandma. She is an amazing women who has lived a wonderful, honorable life.

St. Patricks Day

I didn't catch any photo's of the mischief the leprachans left this year, but we did have a fun "beautiful" dinner as Kjari would say!!  I love the fun simple holidays!!!
