Soccer

Star player, he is gearing up for the world cup. We started Carter in soccer, he LOVES it. I wanted to save money so I signed him up for the cheapest. It ended up being just a practice type soccer thing, which turned out to be a great idea. They teach drills and team work. I think it will help him a ton when he is on an actual team. I think we will sign him up in the fall (they have one in the summer but it is just too unbearable). 
Carter is really good at kicking, he has a power kick. So fun to watch!

The PHX Zoo

There are a short break in the hot weather so we decided to take advantage and take a trip to the zoo. It rained a tad for the first 5 or 10 minutes after that it was great. 
Take note on how Carter wears his sun glasses. When he was younger we bought these glasses and they were too big. So he learn that if he tipped them (which was great problem solving skills) so they would stay on. Now that he is older I think he is just used to tilting them. He is so funny.
 We got to ride on the Merry-go-round, Thanks to Heather's mom (I forgot her name). The kids loved it.
 So the best thing about free tickets is that you don't feel like you have to "get your money's worth". Which I love just going with the flow and not feeling like we have to see everything (we skipped half the zoo), especially when you go with 3 and 4 year olds they are just a content playing on the play ground. I think they enjoyed some of the animals but got bored quickly. Although, Carter really liked petting the goats (which I was super surprised cause he has been afraid of animals lately)
 We went with Heather and her twins, Beth and Ben, and their neighbor kid Maddox. And Heather's mom.
Luckily they brought a wagon, smart. Once Carter saw the other kids riding in it he was too good for the stroller that we brought. I guess that was good for me then it was easier to push :)
We had a good time, but probably will be the last time until fall. Since we are in the high 90's already.

Spring

My mom and Carter planted seeds and it has been fun to watch them grow.

This is Carter doing an Easter Egg hunt, he had a great time. He even wanted to do it multiple times. 
Another funny thing he would do was pick up an eggs and shake it. If the eggs didn't make noise he would put it back down. Lets just say he didn't get a lot of eggs. It was ok because we had another eggs hunt on Sunday. He just had tons of fun.
Lots of kids and tons of eggs.


We had a great Easter. The Sunday program was uplifting and I taught the 10 year olds about the Resurrection of Christ. Which I had to wing because my team teacher didn't show up or get a sub. I was not prepared but I think the Spirit helped me through it. Hopefully the kids were edified and learned something.
Then Derek, Demie, and Harlie came over for dinner. We had another egg hunt with Carter and Harlie. The kids had tons of candy thanks to Grandpa of course.

I am thankful for the Easter holiday and we can teach our children of the Savior and his Redeeming love for us.
