Farewell Winter, Hello Springtime!

Rach and I were talking about the changing seasons yesterday and came to the realization that we have been in the U.S. for almost 4 years now. Where did all the time go? Has it really been that long? It doesn't seem that long but here we are, Maddy is in 2nd grade, almost eight years old and he has 2 new cousins named Micah and Isla that he didn't have when we moved here in 2006. Wow.

The weather has been great this week. The sun has been out for four straight days now and all the snow on the ground has disappeared. Maddy will be starting his 3rd season of soccer soon and he can't wait to get out there and run around with his friends after being cooped up all winter.

This weekend will be a busy one for the DC Branch. We have bowling league tonight followed by Maddy's school annual Fun Fair tomorrow morning. We might try and have a little BBQ afterward and then there's the Sunday bowling league where we are in 2nd place (after finishing the first 2 parts of the season in last place). If we have time we might try and squeeze a father/son haircut in there somewhere too.

The pics are from Maddy's end of season basketball party where he got a trophy for being the best rebounder and most aggressive on the team. That's my boy!


  1. I know! We were just thinking the same thing about being in Sydney. It's been 5 years for us now. Times surely does fly by. And we are looking forward to moving home too. It's definitely time now.

    Talking of haircuts, Micah just had one today. He screamed the roof off the place but at least he looks a bit respectable now.

    Enjoy the weekend you guys! xxx

  3. We want updates on Super Micah please and when you visit baby Isla at Easter time, can you set up a blog for her too AND POST lots of pics please?!? hehe We miss you guys especially the little ones xx

  4. I can believe the "most rebounds" but "most agressive"? Has Maddy turned into a TIGERRRRR?
    Nice trophies - well done!


You're awesome! Thanks for leaving a comment.
