The weather has changed considerably in the past few weeks, and for the past few days, Kam and I have HAD to turn on the air conditioner in the car. I have started wearing some capri pants (the ones I fit into), and found some cute little summer shoes on sale at Wal-Mart (can't beat 5 dollars a pair). I almost don't want to welcome such beautiful weather in fear that it will change again. It has been so nice taking Ellison for walks in the evening, and having some sunlight after 5:00 pm (although I despise the time change). And we keep talking about getting a bike trailer for Ellison to ride in so Kam and I can start riding our bikes again.
With such great change in weather, come the bugs. Kam and I had some friends over for a BBQ the other night, and had to pull out the bug spray because the mosquito's were out in full force. I got bitten a few times, and I think Ellison got one right on her little cheek.
This morning we had one of our quarterly primary activities. We had an Easter activity. The kids started off by making biscuits with marshmallows inside. Once the rolls have baked, the marshmallow melts, and the biscuit is empty...just like the tomb after the resurrection. We also had a scripture treasure hunt around the church for the older kids, and a color and take home puzzle for the little ones. The kids also had a chance to decorate sugar cookies, and we ended with an Easter egg hunt. Overall it was successful, however somewhat disappointing because only six children showed up. Sometimes it is so frustrating and disappointing that we as a presidency put so much time and effort into these activities only to have a poor turnout. I am grateful we were able to serve the six that were there, but would have loved to see the numbers we planned for.
The rest of the week was alright. I went back to work on Tuesday after dropping my mom off at the airport. I have hated leaving Ellison, it is so awful. The week seemed to be so long even though I only worked 4 days. I found out my blood isn't thin enough yet after surgery, so my doctor bumped up the coumadin dosage for a day, and I go back and have it re-tested on Monday. (I guess through all this experience, I have come out on top regarding one thing...I am no longer afraid of needles). Kam has officially started his spring break, although I am a bit jealous that he gets to stay home with the baby while I haul off to work. Other than that, all is well in our corner of the world.
