WWU Spring Break is here!
Good evening, it is Saturday.
Guess what? Preston is home for his spring break! Yay!
Preston and his buddy Malcolm showed up Wednesday evening. Malcolm is actually visiting his buddies on his spring break...he goes to college in Oklahoma! Malcolm got to hang at Western with Preston, Nick, and Connor, but then came back to our neck of the woods with Preston.
Malcolm even spent a couple of nights here. But it was not all video games for these two spring breakers, they were out frolfing, visiting friends, shopping, getting Slurpees, sleeping in, and visiting with more friends.
Preston got to meet up with a bunch of guys from all over the place. In this picture I believe there are five different colleges represented. This is at a Kentlake soccer game. They also had fun seeing some of the guys still in high school.
What is this? 7-11 had a bring your own cup day. Preston and friends picked this up on the way to the soccer game. Yes, it is our Vitamixer filled with Slurpee. Of course, while Preston is home for his spring break (all of next week too), the rest of us are still working, going to school, playing sports, and going about daily lives.
Lillie performed marvelously in her spring band concert. Can you find Lillie? She is the third from the right in the way back playing a trombone. So I don't have a great camera, you get an overview:)
Yes, this is Hansen long jumping in his first ever high school track meet! Hansen decided to run track this year, and I've very happy for him. He is running the 100 meter dash, jumping the long jump as well as the triple jump. There are better pictures in the world of both Lillie at her band concert and of Hansen at the track meet. I will try to get some better ones for the future.
I spied this photo of Hansen's in the school's hallway. Hansen's is the green/yellow/white arrows in the top middle. The cool thing for me about this picture is that I was there when he took the photo. It was at an archery pro-shop of a bunch of arrows for sale in a bin. He was able to make them look very cool.
March Madness! Once again our family has had the opportunity to fill out brackets for this year's college basketball tournament. Nope, I don't join any big pools, it is fun enough to just fill out the brackets and kind of follow the tournament.
