Grandma's Retirement

We spent a really special weekend with Grandma celebrating her retirement! After bringing her infamous 'organized Olga' skills, patient demeanor, and gentle spirit to elementary students for 25 years it was time to close that chapter. We are SO excited to see what God has plans for next!
We got some serious shoe shopping done with Grandma AND Aunt LeAnne!
Followed by pancakes with Oma & Opa.
Plenty of reading time with Grandma. We did play with Nathan & Heidi's kiddos all Saturday afternoon, but we were apparently having too much fun to take a single picture.
On Sunday morning we went to church with Grandma and met Grandpa Jerry & Grandma Joan to see the first ever Gordy Graham scholarship be awarded (created by Grandpa Jerry). It was pretty special to say the least.

May Fun

May has rolled in with spring rain, sunshine, and the promise of summer.
We started the month with a beautiful spring preschool program!

And then moved into Piper' s first softball season :)

We've even had Grandma for a visit too! We love spring!

Easter 2017

It was a lovely but weird Easter without Dad. His absence was felt in every breath, every plant springing to life around their home, in every story we told that erupted into laughter, and in every hug we gave each other. Man, we miss him. Thanks to Jesus, we have new life though. New life through His great sacrifice, and it could not feel more precious than this year.


(Thanks for the amazing & hilarious photo, Jill :)

Hugs from Grandma

We were blessed with hugs from Grandma mid week! She joined us for all of the usual weekday fun; like school pickup, gymnastics, and even Piper's first week of softball practice :) We loved it!!

We also go in plenty of reading time, hiking at the land, and even some Tikka love.

Outdoor Weekend

We spent the beautiful spring weekend outside up at the Anderson property! Lots of fresh air and adventure for the girls. Despite being sick again, Tikka happily joined the girls for all of it.
