march madness

We started March Madness up a little early around here.
We made THREE trips to Manhattan this week 
to watch my brother play basketball.
His high school basketball team was playing in the state tournament.
The whole family was there to cheer Owen on.
The students would yell Ooooooo for Owen…
and Ellie would make an O with her hands.
I think all of our cheering paid off.
Actually the boys just played really awesome.
Berean took state this year.
First time ever for the boys.
What a fun way for Owen to end his Senior year.
We are so proud of him.

We waited and waited after the game for Owen.
Ellie, Tripp, and Levi were getting pretty tired.

Can you tell from the picture that it was a long weekend??
Congratulations Owen!
You rock!
Now that the March Madness is over for us 
I have a few lot of things to work on this week…
Get Levi’s birth announcements out 
(a little late…they are really cute though)
Spring cleaning 
(it is finally feeling a little like Spring around here
 and I am in the mood to get organized)
Start exercising 
(I am supposed to run in a race next month…
not sure if that will happen)
Open our Etsy shop again 
(the Cora dresses are DONE…
I just need to find time to post everything)

Finish up Cora’s for Calla
(PLEASE e-mail me if you haven’t paid for your auction item
or you were a giveaway winner…
I haven’t heard from everyone yet)

(I promised my husband I would start cooking again…
you know like REALLY cooking…
I got a little lazy and spoiled from all those meals 
that came to our house after Levi was born)
Fill out my bracket…
for the REAL March Madness
Hope you have a good week!
