On March 9th, Sumner got his braces off.  This was a BIG deal!

The transformation that has taken place is amazing!

he hasn’t been allowed to eat since the braces went on.

If it’s possible, her hair was even softer and fluffier than before.

Adam and I went away for a few days to Austin, TX.

Sad to say that I didn’t take a lot of photos, but we are ready to go back!

It was the perfect getaway!

This was dessert one evening and it was delicious.

They didn’t miss us at all!

Jonah had a HUGE science fair project due after Spring Break.

He had to create a model, display board, write an essay and give a presentation.

He built his model out of a tomato cage & batting and had it spin,

like a tornado would, during his presentation.

He did awesome!

In fact he got the highest score in the class with an almost perfect score!

Easter came early this year. The service at church was wonderful.

We had a fabulous meal together in our new dining room!  More on that in another post.
