We started off March right where we left off in February - Brailey with her horses and Britt with his basketball and some sales repping by Brady and I in between. It was a whirlwind of a month! In fact, it was such a whirlwind at the end, I am just now able to get this out in the middle of April. Better late than never? Maybe. I'm not so sure. It was really hard to make the time to create this post. It started me thinking, who really cares? Is it narcissistic to write it? Do I really need to blog? Something told me to keep on doing it, to try to make one post a month for the year. It will be a great book for my kids to have someday, which is the reason for it all. And so with that, here we go, straight out of winter and into spring!
Britt went straight from his middle school basketball team back into his club team. He was so happy to see one of his former teammates and good friends at one of the tournaments. They were inseparable last year and have missed each other. I love those handsome faces!
Good byes are always hard. But it was a great time and we have wonderful memories, which we are all grateful for, and that is what life is all about.
We also visited another one of our favorite stores, The Tack Box in Corvallis. I love pictures of boots lined up like this. There's just something cool about seeing so many cowboy boots together, isn't there?
They were given special shirts for this game, and they each had a nickname on the back. Lucky for Britt, some nice girls helped him out and did his for him. I love this school spirit! We didn't know what to expect, but there was lots of smack talk before the game during school, especially with one of Britt's favorite teachers, Mrs. Borchers. It was too much fun for everyone!
The kids got a kick out of it, so it was worth the effort.
And a little bit of spring break fun! At the end of the week, Brailey was finally recovered enough to ride and rope the dummy with Brady. They had a great time! Britt even came up and helped out for a bit one day, in between shooting hoops.
We ended the month with a little burning of our burn piles. It was so nice to get them gone! The day before Easter, which was the last day of March, was beautiful and perfect and productive. Pretty much just like any day of the week in our busy and full lives. Rain or shine, we make the most of our lives, living and loving like there is no tomorrow. These are the days!
