a bit behind

I have quite a few things to share with all four of my blog readers today. Last weekend was the State hockey tournament, which didn't really go the way we wanted it to. The Spuds lost the first two games of the tournament... BOO. But, we still managed to have a little bit of fun... swimming, hockey Expo, knee hockey, omelets for breakfast, running around the hotel, ice cream cones at the Xcel. We're hoping NEXT year will be THE year for the Spuds. The girls got in a trip to the American Girl Store at the MOA while the boys went to the Gopher game at Mariucci arena.

Sorry about the terrible photo... here is Tim at the Easton booth at the Hockey Expo. He won a stick handling contest and got a new helmet.
Which he gave to Kennedy... the boys were not happy. Until he bought them new hockey sticks.This last week the kids were on Spring Break Wednesday -Friday. We didn't do anything exciting... just hung out around the house and relaxed. It was kind of nice for a change. It was Emme's third birthday on Friday. We didn't even get her a present or cake. Bad family.Carter and his friend Carter had a couple sleep overs to work on their History day project for school. I was pretty impressed that they actually got quite a bit of work done!

And the biggest news from last week is that we officially have a 'permit' driver at our house! Katelyn has been putting off taking her permit test for about nine months now... she was scared that she would fail. But since we had time off last week I pretty much MADE her go in to take the test... and she passed! (Just barely.. but hey...) Congrats Katelyn!!!
She drove home...
and also to the grocery store. And this is where she parked...
Wish us luck!

heading to st. paul

The Spuds beat Bemidji last night to earn another trip to the state tournament. The kids are so excited to be heading down there next week. Go Spuds! Maybe this will be the year they finally win the title?????
