Ryan’s Spring season of soccer started yesterday. It had snowed most of the day on Monday, and as of early afternoon on Tuesday, there was still snow on the ground! It melted during the afternoon, but then started snowing again while Ryan’s game was going. It was freezing cold, but the kids were all great sports. Only about half of the kids showed up, so the kids that were there didn’t get much of a break. That was probably a good thing, since it kept them warm.
Ryan played a great game, scoring two goals, and coming within a foot or two of another one! This was Ryan’s first goal of the game.I didn't take very many pictures of the game, since I kept my hands gloved and in my pockets most of the time. Many pictures I did take were blurry due to me shivering. But here's one of Ryan's corner kick, and one of the end-of-game-treat with the snow in the background.
I hope it starts to get warmer VERY soon!!!

This was his surprise lunch. He called me the moment he walked into Rara & Papa’s house today and said, “Mom! That was the most awesome lunch I’ve ever had!”
And this was dinner. You can’t tell from this picture, but the bread is also green. And, for those of you who are new readers and don’t know the story from last year, our local bakery makes green bread and rolls by special order for St. Patrick’s Day.And did everyone see the fountains at the White House? The First Lady, in the spirit of her hometown Chicago River being dyed green every year for St. Patrick's Day, had the White House fountains dyed green today. I think it's great!

Ryan reading (singing) "The Wheels on the Bus" with Claire...
Ryan and Alice...The girls with the personalized onesies I gave to them for Christmas...The girls checking each other out...Alice and Claire are becoming so interactive and aware of what is happening around them. A couple of weeks ago, Ryan and Claire snuggled on the couch and had a little conversation.
Claire also LOVES imitating the "boat" and "raspberry" sounds. We get laughing so hard that we can hardly breathe!
And here's Alice carrying on a conversation with the stuffed kitty that Ryan gave her.
We love them, and are so lucky to spend so much time with them!
