Today was an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day!!!!

Unfortunately, we spent most of it inside.
Oh well, hopefully we'll have some more beautiful days ahead.

We have been on Spring Break this last week and have done
and it has been so nice!

The end of last week Austin and I spent the weekend in Mobile
at the Junior Beta Club Convention.

Here is the big Convention Center where all of the activities were held.  We had a hotel that was within walking distance so that was really nice.

A warm welcome from Moblie Bay...and it was warm...we had the best weather.

Here is a picture of our kids performing their Talent Act.
They sang several songs from the Motown era and did a great job.
The kids played their own background music and sang all of the songs either as solo's or as a group.

We placed FIRST!!!
WHoo HOo!!!!!

We also had a little boy place first in the History competition and another
one in the woodworking competition!!!

Way to go ABS!!!!

(Austin is behind the boy in the blue shirt on the front row holding the plaque)

Here is a picture of all the kids that were at convention from ABS.
I imagine that the elementary end of the hall was pretty quiet before
Spring Break...we took a lot of kids down there.

They all had a great time and were very well behaved.  It makes it nice to
travel with good kids!!!

P.S. Thanks Kimberly for letting me steal your photos off FaceBook
since I didn't even take my camera out of the car!!!

Phantom of the Opera and some sickies....

Last Friday, Austin's Elementary Musical was titled
"On Broadway!"

Each elementary class sang a tune from different shows that are on Broadway.
Austin's class sang a song from Phantom of the Opera.
The boys all dressed up like the Phantom and
the young ladies dessed like Christine.
They did and excellent job.
 There were two young ladies that sang a solo--
They sang like little angels!! 
I would have never had the guts to do that!!!

Then after this they all became sickies..
several kids came home with a stomach virus
some with Strep...
we missed all of those,
but Jackson wound up with RSV on Wednesday!!
We have been house bound since then.
He was a pretty sick little boy...he sat in my lap and didn't move one day

And now just as Jackson is getting better--
Austin has an appointment today at 1:40--
He's sick too---

There is a light at the end of the tunnel!!
Friday night a group of girls are going to see
The Wizard of Oz
at the Huntsville Broadway Theatre League
Whoo Hoo-
Dinner with no little ones...
Getting dressed up...
Fun night with the Girls...

Can't wait!!!!
