Tonight I read The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn to my boys as their bedtime story. The book came with about twenty heart stickers, which Andrew immediately started decorating his legs with. I kissed them goodnight and walked away determined to tackle the mountain of laundry that had piled up. About twenty minutes later, I heard Andrew talking in his room. I peeked my head into his room to see him sitting in his bed pointing to each heart and naming family and friends. Everyone got their own heart!!
I love that kid.

The youth had a Toms painting party over Spring Break. If you haven't heard of Toms-- it is this really cool shoe company that donates a pair of shoes to a person in need for every pair purchased.
We bought 20 pairs so we helped 20 people, plus we got some awesome one of a kind shoes!
Go to the Toms site to check out this business or purchase a pair for yourself.
And a super thanks to our "Shutterbug" Lauren for the great pics.

We went to the beach with some of our favorite people this Friday. We started out late and traffic was ridiculous (or was it redonkulous?-- that's for you Syd)
There were tiny jellyfish everywhere.
And Andrew and Maddie kept knocking down our sandcastles.... but other than that we had a great time.
We played a little soccer (even Malia got to play thanks to Blake)
had a little picnic
And enjoyed a lot of conversation.
