Thank goodness it's finally here!  Springtime.  Loving every minute of this gorgeous weather and all the blooming life outdoors.  This is proving to be quite a challenging year for our family, and having beautiful weather helps to clear the mind and get the body moving.

I'm so proud of myself...I had a rare Martha Stewart moment and decided to make Quinn's Easter dress myself.  I think for it being my first time making an item of apparel, it turned out pretty great.

Easter weekend was busy but fun.  We had an egg hunt in our yard...

Colored eggs with the kids...

And Quinn got her first real bicycle from the Easter bunny...

It's such a struggle not knowing God's plan.  So much is happening right now in my own family life and the lives of those close to me, and I can't even begin to understand the purpose or the lessons that will be learned when all is said and done.  But I know there is a plan, and I've just gotta let it ride for now.  

We're doing the best we can with what we've got.  And what we've got ~ although it isn't everything we'd hope and picture for ourselves ~ isn't all that bad.  Loving and living life to the fullest is worth the effort, and the rewards are priceless.
