Hailey is doing softball AND track this year. Luckily her softball coach encouraged her to do both! She's realized she really enjoys it and she is placing well in the 100m and 200m and doing pretty decent at the triple jump and long jump. Her goal is to make it to state this year in the 200m.

The older three kids performed at the Idaho state FFA convention last week held at the College of Southern Idaho and they did an awesome job! I was very proud of them. :) Taylor and Hailey did an acapella clogging duet and Torsten accompanied a singing duet. They were the entertainment before the beginning of the Thursday session. It was so fun to be back in CSI's performing arts auditorium watching the kids on stage! It made me nostalgic for our days of living in Twin Falls, when we spent lots of time in that building.

Spring break we went to Oregon. We've only traveled to the coast in autumn so it was fun to do this trip in the spring. The scenery was amazing. On the way, we passed daffodil farms in full bloom that looked like they could be postcard pictures. Wow!!
So back to the lovely Oregon scenery.

Hailey went out on her first group date last night and took the perfect person as her "date"--Taylor! Aren't brothers the best? :) Torsten took Hailey's friend as his date.
Last night I started to get sentimental as I realized that soon this 3some will be splitting up when Torsten leaves home. Currently they go every where together, sing the national anthem at all the ball games together, dance at stake and school dances together, attend music camp together, etc. I realized the other day that this year I had 4 kids at the highschool: Taylor a Freshman, Hailey a sophomore, Lily, our exchange student a junior, and Torsten a senior! It's been a busy full year with all my kids at home. Changes and new adventures are on the horizon.......deep breath......

Today, Leif came home from preschool and proudly showed me the little watering can he chose from the preschool "store". He was sooo happy about it. "Mom, now we can plant the garden!!!!"
We cleaned the garden spot up last week and I guess he is excited to plant something. I love it! :)

There has been a game of Monopoly being played in this house for DAYS. Rather than go bankrupt we just have a complicated debt register and often the rich guys decide to "donate" money to their poor tenants. We have the Idaho version, so during one game I owned Sun Valley, Hell's Canyon and ISU. So fun!

Taylor wrecked his dirt bike AGAIN. In his words though, this time, he took it like a man.
