C’est le printemps!  It’s spring!  The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and we can enjoy the outdoors again!

Goodness, I hate that I only posted one time for the entire month of March, but spring is always a super busy time for me.  (Well, what season isn’t, really?)  After Upward basketball we rolled straight into spring soccer, which I vowed I would never do again.  Spring soccer is so cold and so rainy.  We’ve already had two games cancelled.

Because of all the snow days we had – ice days, really – our boys had two days of Saturday school.  They also had to give up two days of their Spring Break, but after that we managed to sneak them away to Branson for a few days.  It was cold, but we had a great time visiting some classic Branson haunts like Silver Dollar City.  Our oldest son tried his first adult roller coaster and loved it!

One thing I always love about Branson is the outlet mall.  We did hit a few stores, but this year I didn’t shop nearly as much as I would have liked.  I am hoping that I will continue to lose weight, and therefore need to go on a shopping spree for smaller sizes than are currently in my closet.  I have lost enough weight that some of my pants are swallowing me, so I’ve bought a couple of new pairs of pants to get me through my work week.  But I’d love if I needed a whole new wardrobe this fall and next spring!

Besides being busy, I also didn’t post much during March because there wasn’t much to report.  I didn’t lose a single pound, but I also didn’t gain anything, so I guess that’s good.  April is already off to a great start!  I have started taking my running shoes/clothes with me to my son’s soccer practice so I can walk and jog during that time.  My hip seems to be doing better these days, so I’m back to my aerobics at home, too.

Sorry this post isn’t very exciting…I was determined to post something tonight, even if it is dull!  Hopefully my next post will be juicier.  I’ll leave you with a few spring-inspired pictures from my mom’s flower beds, our fruit farm, and our trip to Branson.  Hope you have an opportunity to get outside this week!
