2 reasons to celebrate!

Today we have 2 awesome reasons to celebrate at the Black Pearl Academy!

The first one is Easter! Our savior Jesus is RISEN! Here is a picture of the children before we left for church this morning. Austin is wearing jeans because his nice pants that fit him 3 weeks ago when I was checking Easter clothes no longer fit him. Gotta love these pre-teen growth spurts! But still everyone looked wonderful!
Austin took a picture of me and the girls, too! I bought a new dress and shoes for Easter this year!
And we have a second reason to celebrate today: Riley turns 9 years old today! We did her cake and presents once everyone was home from church! She frosted her cake herself last night:
She got a $10 gift card to Walmart from her brother!
And she got a Himalayan cat Webkinz from her sister:

From mom and dad, she is getting ear piercing. But we'll be doing that next Saturday so Nana and Papa came come watch it happen! :)

It sure is a happy day here today!

Wow I can definitely tell it's spring at your house, the purple buds on the trees are lovely, as is your family.
Nothing budding here yet, but anyway, congrats to Riley.
