Golden Dragon Acrobats

We saw the Golden Dragon Acrobats tonight which is China's premiere acrobatic touring company. Their performance also includes contortionists and jugglers.

It was an amazing show!

We enjoyed the traditional Irish stepdancing of Riverdance tonight. I saw it at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago in February 1999 and it was just as good last night as it was back then.

The Sentimental Swing Set

The swing set that Kent built (the weekend before our trial with cancer started) traveled well from Indiana to Nebraska and the boys are still getting a lot of use out of it.

Spring is here!

The first day of spring brought weather nice enough for the boys to shoot hoops in our driveway.

After baseball, basketball is the boys' favorite sport. J was a starter for his school's 3rd and 4th grade team this year and is looking forward to camp this summer. 

E and N have been learning the fundamentals of the game through a six week program at our local YMCA and are looking forward to playing on the same 1st and 2nd grade team next year through a league hosted by a local church.

N was goofing around here and actually made the shot!

What a great first day of spring!

Building Project

I'm God's building project! I heard this in reference to Ephesians 2:10 at church this morning and it really hit home. God isn't remodeling. He's still building from the blueprint. His handiwork just takes time. How encouraging!

I was surprised when all three of the boys wanted to wrestle this year. I didn't know anything about the sport and was apprehensive about it but let them try it anyway. N excelled at it, E had fun with it and J, who competed against boys with three or four years more experience than him, will probably just be playing basketball next year. At first, I resisted liking it, but it was a lot of fun!
