April So Far - Some Good, Some Bad

Hey everyone!
Well, my lack of blogging has proven that March -- although not nearly as stressful as February, THANK GOD -- was a very busy month!  I hope to blog more in April, but who knows.  Life seems to be getting in the way of blogging time, but hey....life is more important than blogging anyway, right?

I want to thank you all who commented on my last blog post.  Yes, February was a very challenging month for us, but hearing your well wishes and encouragement was really nice.  So thank you for taking the time to read and comment. That means a lot to me.

Well, here we are in April already...can you believe how fast this year is going by?! Seriously.

So far, April has brought us a LOVELY Easter Sunday with friends and family, some much needed rain for our drought-stricken state, the start of baseball season (our favorite!), and oh yeah....the nasty, dreaded stomach virus!  That's right.  My little guy was hit with a very mild case of it on Easter morning (but was fine after taking some Pepto).  I was hit with it on this past Tuesday. Not so mild case for me.  More like stayed-in-bed-all-day, only-getting-up-to-hug-the-toilet, and losing-4-pounds case for mama.  Not fun.  Then, my oldest son started throwing up on this past Wednesday morning.  Right on the day he was supposed to take our state's standardized testing for 4th grade.  Luckily, he only had a very mild case of it and was able to make up that part of the test yesterday.

We're all on the mend, now...and praying hubby doesn't come down with anything. I've been washing and Lysol-ing everything I possibly can.

Even though Evan was still recovering from this tummy bug yesterday, he started baseball season off with pitching for his team last night for most of the game.  He did an AMAZING job, especially for not feeling 100% better yet.  They ended up winning 3-2!  Close game, but they fought back and took the lead.  Very proud of my boy.  And...can we just stop for a minute and see how incredibly grown up he is looking?!

Seriously.  He's looking like a teenager lately (and acting a bit like one too), and I'm just not sure I'm ready for that!  Lord, help me.

Okay, so moving on....I've got a fabulous monthly kit to show you from The Scrap Room! Here's what you'll get in this month's kit:

Just look at all that yummy stuff (and...a packet of flavored coffee with every kit...holla!).  Here are my projects using the April 2013 kit:

I totally loved this month's kit! If you're looking to join a monthly scrapbooking/papercrafting kit club, TSR is the way to go!  I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it...Tammy's kits are the best.

Thanks for taking a look!  Hope your month is going well so far. :)
