What have we been up to?

A LOT! ~It has been one big fun blurr lately!

Joy and Andrew had their last JBQ District match which is the last one of the year. ~Both teams came in first place in their flights. Whoo-hoo. A fun way for Joy to end her JBQ years!

Nathan had TBQ Districts and his team came in 3rd place and will most likely advance to the regional competition with a wild card invitation.

We went on a field trip to a big cat sanctuary and saw all kinds of neat cats that have been rescued.
This animal reminded me that God has a sense of humor.
This is a bear cat and its spray (aka urine) smells JUST like.....
You'll never guess......

Just like buttered popcorn! I kid you not!
When the tour guide asked us if we smelled buttered popcorn I was like "Yes! Yum!" Until I found out what it was of course. EWWWW!!!

We were blessed to hear a lion roar!

What a gorgeous animal he is. And his roar was nothing like what you hear on TV.

Joy and I finished a sewing project we were doing for a sweet friend's new baby that is due to arrive any minute! I made the blankee and Joy made the matching bear! It was fun.

And THIS week we took spring break!
Our dear friends from TX came to spend the week with us and we had a blast!

It wasn't long before we were all knitting together.... LOL!
Nathan came in and said "Oh no! My mom has brainwashed you." ; )
But they wanted to learn and help us make hats for missionaries so it didn't really count as brainwashing.

It's fun to see how much our kids love being together because we sure do!
