March Madness

Isa took the camera to school. She had fun taking pictures of her friends. 
Isa with her buddie, Katie, and her teacher, Ms. Davis.
 Isa's other buddy, Ella.
 Rosie with her friend, Audrey. She's so happy she has a play date. 

 Isa and Katie are doing a comedy show that was very funny. Lots of potty humor. 
 Some yummy stew Marc made when we were all recovering from the stomach flu. 
 Rosie's spider monster. 
 Party at Nevins!
 Isa made a great birthday present for Sean. She gave him a key chain compass. 

 Jimmy got hearing aids. He was great wearing them on the first day. 
 He loves playing with all the toys at the audiologist's office.

 You get a yummy treat when you get hearing aids. Just FYI!

 Rosie started swim lessons this month. She's gone three times and she talks the entire times. 
 Her goal is to swim with the ding dong on her back on her own. 
chatter, chatter, chatter

We have been outside on a few random days this month. It's been great!

Ella and Isa hanging out before gymnastics on a trash can.  

 My handsome man. 

 Rosie and a stick!
 Jimmy stood in the middle of these boys for a few minutes. He enjoyed being in the group. 
 Then all the boys left. :(
We all filled out a bracket. Rosie picked her schools based on how they sounded when shouted. She loved "homa" for Oklahoma, "hattan" for Manhattan, Woffard for Woffard, "natti" for get my drift. It was fun filling her bracket out. 
 Marc's bracket

Isa's bracket

Jimmy on a school field trip to Ridgeview restaurant. He orders and pays for his own food. He always gets chocolate chip pancakes!

Isa's Piano Recital!
 She did great!

 Static! Marc and the girls made this cool structure!

Isa after her first reconciliation. Her goal was to never sin again. 
 Handsome Jimmy!
 One morning I went into Jimmy's room and he wasn't there. SCARY! Thankfully he was downstairs. His door wasn't shut all the way and he found his way out. I have a feeling we will see more of this when he learns how to open his (thankfully) very tough to open door.
 Marc and I out benefit hopping!
 The cousins came over briefly and Marc made them all hot cocoa. The best Uncle EVER!
 Isa Pizza!
Marc took Isa to the Adventure Guides Camp Out! Here she is the helper for the cool bubble guy. She even got to go inside the bubble! 
They had fun sledding in very cold weather!

Jimmy was singing, "You're my best friend, I LOVE YOU!" Best song ever. 
 Jimmy looking cool!
 That's right, I like Diego!
 Marc took Isa to the Bulls Game. 
 She had a great time and still has a little imprint of the bull on her cheek. Poor girl has my skin and can't put face paint on her face without a reaction afterwards.
 Dad, Ice Cream, New Hat, and whatever that game is= AWESOME!

 Jimmy had a special time with Daddy at the Kohl Children's Museum!

 After the museum they went out for pizza.
 Then off to gymnastics!

 He finally got in the right position...but clearly the best way down is feet first.
 We all got the stomach flu. Poor Rosie sleeping some of it off. Marc had to stay home from work because Rosie and I were hit in the same day. My stomach still hasn't fully recovered.
 Isa did a report on Ulysses S Grant! She can't believe he didn't help get the girl vote?!!
 Roller Skating and Blading in the basement!
