First Week in Michiana

Monday
We arrived just in time for what will probably be the last snow of "Winter 2014"
It wasn't a lot of snow, but
after having one of the worst pollen seasons in the south, my sinuses welcomed the fresh crisp, cold air.

Saturday
 One reason for coming up this early in the spring was to see Grandson Jackson play in the Western Michigan University Spring Football Kickoff Practice.
 Since this was just a scrimmage, Jackson played three different positions -
Left Offensive Guard with the 1st string, Center with the 2nd, and Tackle for all extra points.

He did really well in all positions, but will probably be starting at right guard for the regular season.  I know, go figure.
 After the game, the guys were stationed around the field in order to sign signatures.  Even his little sis got into the act with a very personal one.
 One of Jackson's best buds even made the trip to support him.  Now, that's a sweet friendship!
Of course, I couldn't miss an opportunity to be seen with my only grandson.

Easter Sunday
We attended the Saturday evening worship service because Michelle and the girls were volunteers in the nursery for Sunday morning services.  Sunday afternoon was spent with some of our family's good friends.
  The food was delicious and the fellowship sweet.

Before lunch, the kids enjoyed a game of soccer, which mostly ended up being a one-on-one between Savannah and Clay.
 After lunch it was time for the dads to hide the Easter Eggs.
 However, they could take it seriously only so long and then it had to become a game.
 Everyone found their share plus each had a special egg containing a $20 bill that they had to find.
You mothers will appreciate that Jackson was not content with just a paper sack like the others but had to use his mother's NEW white leather Coach bag for collecting his eggs.
Nothing like a hunky diva!

It was a great day and we were grateful to share it with our loving family and their friends.
