The kids have been on spring break from school, and thank God it's almost over. The older two boys have been helping Scott dig a five-foot deep hole in the back yard which will someday be a very deluxe koi pond. The sad thing is that they have done all of this backbreaking work for only a candy bar and a soda each afternoon. They're happy with it, though! We keep tight tabs on sweets around here since we have two diabetics, so little things like candy and soda make major incentives when it comes to extra chores or good grades. The younger kids have been bike riding, blanket fort building, Lego city designing, and tearing up the house in a variety of ways. On Friday, they decided to play with their old Halloween costumes and other dress-up clothes. Noah said, "Whatever I pull out of this bag, I wear for life." He pulled out his Indiana Jones hat, and then said, "Well, looks like I am going to have a life of adventure."
