More Catching Up

I don't really have a good reason for not keeping up with the blog.
We do take pictures, but some of the events didn't seem "blog-worthy"
so I have been saving them up to create one big post. I know,
I know, more small posts more often would be better...I think I'm just lazy.

Madelyn in her Easter dress that Great-Grandma Millie
gave her LAST YEAR! It finally fit.

Elisha at the Million Egg Hunt the Saturday before Easter.
It was freezing, so Madelyn and I stayed in.
Jim said there were kids there in flop flops and without coats.
Maybe next time, they should give out coats, socks, and shoes.

Madelyn and Great-Grandpa Bowman on Easter.

Madelyn's first experience with crayons.
She did try to eat them, so I guess she's not
ready for unsupervised art time...yet.

Grandma Judy stopped by and Madelyn loved wearing her gloves around.

Elisha did this puzzle and all by himself. I'm not exaggerating;
I checked on him and found it was done - amazing!

Jim and I often take the kids for walks on the IWU campus.
A few weeks ago, we finished and discovered that Madelyn
had dropped (or possibly thrown) her pacifier out of the stroller.
We walked again a couple of weeks later and FOUND IT on the side
of the road. We won't be using it again; but I saved it for the story.

Math Competency

I'm not sure I should be excited that I could pass 8th grade math; but, I must confess, that I was proud (surprised, actually) that I got a perfect score. My brain just doesn't get that much exercise in algebra these can try it for yourself if you click on the link.

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 10/10 correct!
