Sunny Weekend!

 We really enjoyed seeing the sun this weekend!!  John watched the IOWA game with his two favorite pups--in the sun!!

Everyone got their jobs done around the house....Anna vacuumed all of the carpet on Saturday!  I love child labor!!!

 She treated herself to a "facial mask" last night.  She said, "Mom, I look like a smurf!"

Luke's last game of the season

Last night, the Owls played their last game as Freshmen.  It was a real nail biter, but they were triumphant over West Bend West by 3 points!  Thankfully, Luke was able to play a little and even scored two points (free throws.)  So proud of him!!

Saturday Fun

 Along with our college boys coming home, in came their laundry....and Courtney's too!
Saturday afternoon the kids wanted to ice skate.  Anna and Luke had never skated before. They had a good time!

 All of the boys got a haircut last weekend.  I taught Courtney how to use the "buzzer" for the buzzcut!  Luke was waiting in line to go next.  They all look like clean cut young men now- Hooray!

Friday & Saturday

Last Friday, I drove down to UW-Whitewater to pick up Ben.  Here is his dorm.  He switched dorms over Thanksgiving break and is now on the 1st floor in Bigelow Hall. 

 Friday night we watched Luke (#44)  play in his first basketball game after his back injury.  We didn't think he would be able to play for the whole season, so it was SO GOOD to see him back out there!  His friends and the team parents all cheered for him when he walked onto the court to play!  SO COOL!  His basketball skills were a little rusty and he found that being out for 12 weeks had a huge effect on his endurance on the court...but his SMILE made it all worthwhile!
 Saturday, we met at a restaurant to celebrate all of the February birthdays in our family.  (My Moms, Mine and Andrew's birthdays)  Too bad Grandma didn't feel well and couldn't make the luncheon!! We missed her!

2nd Place!

Our 6th grade girls captured 2nd place in our own tournament!  It was a rough game and close the whole time.  Unfortunately, we came out on the bottom, losing by 2 points!  Just the day before this, we won against them by 3....I guess we were evenly matched!  Here is the whole team after the game with the trophy.  Great Job, Ladies!

Here are a few shots of Anna in action- she's #2
