How the weeks fly by! I cannot remember everything that has happened since we wrote last. I'll just try to do a few highlights.
Last week at work I had an idea for a new project. My boss liked the idea and he helped me write a one page proposal. It was funded within 48 hours and I have already ordered the hardware for my new project. The project is small, but it's great to have my own little program. This sort of thing would never have occurred at Raytheon.
A few weeks ago we went to a nursery to learn about what grows in here in Colorado. I was sad to learn that the only cherries we can grow are sour-pie cherries. I was hoping for sweet cherries. We can grow strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. We assembled our garden beds on Saturday. We're excited to start growing things here.
We finally ALL got into our hot tub. We've only been here 6 months. The hot tub is about 10 years old but everything works. We drained the water (it took all day!) and refilled it. We hope to enjoy it in the coming year.
Underfoot participated in the Pine Wood Derby. He took third overall.
|He's not competitive at all. ;)|
I've started reading the Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy to Underfoot and Hurricane. At first they weren't very interested, but now everything they build out of Legos seems to be a submarine. It's been fun for me to read it to them. It is one of my favorite books.
Hurricane's baptism is going to be held on Saturday, May 27th. We are excited to host family and friends for that special event.
Wendy writes about Underfoot:
We only have 1 person in our house that is still in the single digits for age.
|Last Day as a Single Digit|
Underfoot performed in his first orchestra concert.
A few weeks ago I got a call from the school saying that they suspected that Underfoot had a concussion. We took him to the doctor, and it was confirmed.
|We made cookies. Underfoot hid them in his bed for easy access.|
Now something else besides Underfoot....
We painted 1 1/2 bathrooms. YAY! The boys were so happy the purple bathroom is a different color.

We had a surprise visit from my parents.
We've attended 2 free food events. IHOP hosted a free stack of pancakes day.
we would miss it from Tucson.
Spring break has begun, and we got the Mile High Cultural Pass. It has 7 museums. We hope to see at least 5 of the 7. Today we went to the Colorado History Center. We had hoped to go to the Denver Mint but must get in line by 7 am to get a tick into a tour.
I finished my photo class.
This was the final assignment picture.
Before they devoured their pancakes.
The top of the Lego cake was what made it okay.
Plus there was a bunch of powdered sugar.
Another piñata similar to last year.
The cake turned out pretty.
Why not have pictures of 2 cakes?
