Spring Changes

Wow!  Spring is flying past, and it's been crazy around the Kenney house.  Maybe I should say busy rather than crazy, but crazy is how I feel.  Anywho,  we have been making some changes around our house which we've wanted to do for awhile, but were unable until now.  Instead of starting and finishing one thing at a time, we jumped head first into several projects, which is why I feel our lives have gone crazy. 

On Monday I had LASIK surgery on both my eyes to correct my vision.  I've worn glasses or contacts since I was three, and absolutely love that when I wake up now I can see across the room without having to reach for my glasses first.  I am excited to see!  Wes commented this morning how weird it was to see me reading email using my phone without glasses.  It's awesome!

Last week we finally upgraded our internet at our house. When Wes and I began to play with our iChat video, we discovered my computer's microphone wasn't working.  Bummer, but the video feed was great!  My computer has been at the Apple Store at Stonebriar Center in Frisco, Texas, since Friday, and I'm looking forward to getting to it back Thursday.  Thankfully we have a laptop I can use until then.  

After leaving the computer at the Apple Store Wes, the kids, and I decided we would stop at Ikea. Wes and I had decided several months ago we wanted several bookcases to make a unit in our living room.  I've want bookcases for storage for a while, so we decided to get them since we were there.  We also picked up a storage unit for Sebastian's toys.  Needless to say Wes spent the rest of the weekend putting together bookcases.  

We are also making some changes in our backyard, but I'll get to those in another post.  My eyes need a break.  I'll add more pictures once I get my computer back.

Speed Zone & Ikea

Wes and I had a meeting in Dallas a couple weeks ago, and we took the kids with us. After our meeting we took the kids to Speed Zone, where we rode go carts. The kids played a few video games before we headed over to Ikea.

Enjoying some chocolate cake with milk at Ikea in Frisco, Texas.

Hmmm, it was GOOD!

It was a fun day!

Outside Fun (Pictures)

A couple weeks ago Katherine, Sebastian, and I visited a couple of friends at their school for lunch. The kids were invited to play with their friends class for recess.

These next couple pictures are taken at the park in Hugo, OK.

We're really enjoying the wonderful spring weather!

Red River Museum Field Trip

*Update: Added video

In February our homeschooling group took a field trip to the Red River Museum in Idabel, Oklahoma. After the museum tour the kids had the opportunity to make a clay pinch pot in the activity room. Sebastian wasn't interested, but Katherine did choose to participate. She enjoyed making her clay pinch pot.

Katherine let her pot harden for a couple days at home then she painted it. She now has a cute little earring holder for her dresser.

Spring Break or Blogging Break?

I've been taking a bit of a blogging break this spring, and I'm not sure how long this break might last.

Even though there has been a lot going on in our lives these last couple months it has not been blog worthy. Keep checking in if only to read my twitter updates!

Happy Resurrection Day!!!!

Today I received an email update from a family serving in Asia on the mission field that said Happy Easter was translated Happy Resurrection Day. I love it!

Our family is worshiping our risen Savior, and we pray you are doing the same with your family.
