What a week! There was the obligatory Easter picture. Thanks to my daughter we all kind of coordinated. She picked out our clothes. We enjoyed a hike on Easter day after church. It was the perfect day. Celebrating Jesus and hiking. There was a lot of cooking and baking this week...there's always a lot of cooking going down at my house. On Thursday was Isaac's Cochlear Implant activation. We've been experimenting with different sounds and trying to help him hear them. On Saturday there was much playing outside in the dirt. Overall it was a good week.

I love seeing all these faces on my pages. What a life!

Monday Highlight: Baseball Pages by Amie

Grand Slam Templates by Scrapping with Liz
Sweet Liberty by Mommyish and Amber Labau
Today's highlight is brought to you by Amie. I'm actually showing you two pages by Amie because she rocked my new Grand Slam Templates.  It's like her photos, the kit and templates were made together. She really made them all work together perfectly. Even the fonts she chose are perfect. I'm thinking Amie likes watching her little boy play baseball!

Week 15.  We did a lot of normal things this week like school work, cooking, laundry, cleaning, yard work, etc...but a few extra special things like a sleep over with a cousin, a big hair cut for Ashlyn (she decided to donate her hair), a service project, and Easter egg hunt. There's a little bit of it all on this week's page.

That picture of Abi cracks me up. They had their cousin over to spend the night and the next morning they put on a gymnastics show for me. This was one of her moves. It sort of looks like a rock star pose.

Here are a few more pages from Jinan, China. Slowly but surely getting this album done.

This was a fun week. Some new adventures for our oldest, some firsts for our family and just plain ol' good times.  I had to adjust the template a little bit and add a lot of journaling over the photos...there was just too much to talk about this week!

Take a closer look below. I'll include the journaling below just in case you can't make it out on the pages.

Journaling Left Page (starting at top left and moving right around the page):

One day I heard a duet coming from the room. I peek in and I see Ashlyn & Matthew playing a
song together!

Protocol was this week (part of Ashlyn’s co-op).  A chaperoned event where the kids dress up, eat in
an upscale restaurant and attend a cultural event. We went to Chattanooga, ate at Alleia and then attended the Symphony. It was fun to sit back and watch her interact with all of her friends. We are blessed to be part of such a great group of kids and parents.

They chatted with the soprano singer afterwards.

This girl started driver’s ed this week. When she turned 14.5 she insisted I sign her up. It took me a few weeks to get her all signed up. As soon as she got the password to begin the on-line course she started! Exciting and scary times around here!

Journaling Right Page:

Friday night is movie night! These 3 little ones were excited.

Matthew received another birthday gift. He played with it all day.

Aunt V. had a rocket experiment for Isaac. It failed but they still had fun.

I scrapped a couple more China pages these last couple of weeks. It's slow going on these, but I will eventually get Abi and Isaac's album done.

This first one has pictures right outside our hotel room and room number along with a QR code of us playing outside our room. We spent a lot of time running the halls. What do you do with a new 2 and 3 year old inside a hotel room for a week?!?

Jinan was beautiful. So many beautiful places to walk and see, and the people are the friendliest! Although the smog was so bad we didn't realized that it was surrounded by mountains until the day we left!

Monday Highlight: April Showers by Teri

April Blog Challenge
April Showers from Nibbles Skribbles
Today's highlight is brought to you by Teri. She shared this page in my SwL Facebook Group. This one caught my eye because of the grey background with the pops of teal color. It really conveys the feeling of the photo. Plus that little rain cloud over the photo is too cute! Keep'em coming Teri!

If you like the template you can still grab it here on the blog. It's part of the April Blog Challenge.
