Ready for Springtime

As predicted, we have spent the last week engaged in a ebay pack and ship marathon. We are finally done with packaging up our 107 auctions of last week, so yesterday we put up some more auctions of our own. It's an addiction. :) I'm also engaged in another session of grading poorly written essays online. It's through the same company that I worked for last fall to grade SAT essays online. This time it's an individualized state test, but same concept. So as you might imagine, Ben and I have been fighting for computer time so we can both engage in our various money-making endeavors, and there has been very little time to blog!

We had some gorgeous spring weather this past week, so I was able to take my many children outside to play. The weather turned out to be a tease, since this weekend was cold and nasty, but we certainly had a good time while we had the chance!

Bryn blowing bubbles
Bryn climbs the ladder on her playset up to the landing and slide
Swingset babies: Bryn and Bekah on the "horsie swing" (as they call it), our friend Christopher in the baby swing, and (if you look really closely) Levi toddling around behind it all
Shay's not really sure what to make of this whole "outdoors" thing

Bekah, Bryn, Christopher, and Levi, each with their own individual bottle of bubbles (we're not so good with the sharing!)
Again, many thanks to Ryan and Kathy for the swingset and to Jen and Adarryl for the kids' picnic table.... our children are having a wonderful time with your castoffs! :)
