I wanted a big change, not just an update on our color. It seems all the new houses in our neighborhood are being painted brown with lighter popouts. I liked that looked, but was so nervous about going brown. But, we went for it anyway. And I LOVE it! The brown looks darker in the photos as the front of our house is shaded and there isn't any sun out today, but I'm a fan of the dark.
This was the before.
Here's the backyard which is actually in the sun, so you can see the brown better.
Looking at the backyard compared to the first picture I posted, it looks like completely different color of brown. But, it is the same. Amazing what some lighting/sun does! We are so happy to see that crappy paint job go. And I'm thrilled that we didn't go with the same or close to the same colors. Change is good.

My girl has been terrified of puppets from forever. She was watching a Youtube videos tonight on her ipad and a little ad played first. It was for this creepy movie called The Boy. The boy is a puppet that comes to life and not like a cute Big Bird puppet. This boy is about as creepy as it gets. She was scared and asked to sleep with me. To her credit, David and I both thought it was super creepy too.
Isn't she cute? She's such a pretty young lady. I love her.

Noah ~ Student of the Quarter
Ben ~ Principal's list (all A's) and perfect attendance
Emily ~ Principal's list (all A's) and perfect attendance
They had their award assembly this week and it was the first one I missed in 7 years. My stomach was all sorts of off. So, David went instead. I'm glad we have flexibility to do that.
And this week, I made all the arrangements for our Spring Break trip...

The second time he went I was like, okay, enough of the flying 5 feet in the air. We are going on a cruise in 56 days. Broken limbs would be no bueno.
Noah and Emily went down the big hill from the midway point a couple of times.
It was great fun and I'm sure we'll be back soon.

I had the kids clean the bathrooms with headlamps. They were not amused. Well, Noah didn't mind.
