Spring is here!
Youth Group got over a couple weeks ago. Below is the picture of the seniors we are saying goodbye to. I think this will be one of those special classes that you don't forget, because they were the first. We had a great year with them and will definately miss them. We still have the Memorial Day Pancake breakfast & our serve trip coming up so we are done with the Wednesday nights but not "done" yet for the year...still lots of planning to do!
Now, I would like to introduce you to the newest addition to our yard... this stinkin' coon! We put our trash can up on the deck so that the grass could grow without it sitting on the ground. A few nights in a row we've heard this crashing/knocking noise from outside- couldn't ever figure out what it was... until one time I made Karl go look and he said "come here! you're not going to believe this!" .... much to my dismay the pic below is what we saw. Yup, the coon is just sitting there chillin' in our trash! Creating it's own sort of sick, twisted, gourmet buffet! So what is that knocking noise we hear? It's the coon taking the lid off of the can and throwing it on the deck! Which, is complete craziness to me because it takes me 2 hands in order to get the lid off-- it's "Hefty" ...not like it's easy just to rip off like taking a kleenex out of a box... it takes a little wiggling to get it loose, like trying to get the one piece of Twizzler unstuck from the rest of the pack. Regardless, we need to think of a new way to get rid of him--any ideas? He has "overwelcomed" his stay! Oh, and he may look small in this picture but it is the BIGGEST coon I've ever seen in my life!
And this is what happens when the coon realizes he's being watched and having his picture taken... he bolts outta there in a big hurry!
We took a grankid picture w/ Grandpa & Sharon at Easter. Everyone was able to be there but Jared so we decided we better take one w/ so many of us there! It was a very beautiful, fun day to hang out with everyone.
