Hippity, hoppity, Easter's on its way!

I'm tired. Really tired. More than just the mommy-of-five-young-children tired. We are in the 4th week of our kitchen/laundry room/bath remodel. I'm going to love it when it's over, but the whole process is just awful. It's taking twice as long as the initial estimate, and I never know what is going to happen from one day to the next. I'm finding out just how long you can drag out mudding and sanding drywall. I have no idea until I get home in the evening if my kitchen will be usable. There is dust EVERYWHERE. There are strange men in my house constantly and they don't knock before entering. And this is all minor in comparison to having to either stay away completely for the day or to keep the children out of the way. Being away all day means I have to do all my everyday chores at night. I'm not getting into bed until midnight on most nights. Plus, Rebecca is really acting out right now. My day really gets interesting at 2:30 every day, when I pick her up from school. I'm hoping that much of her problem is the change in her routine and things will be back to "normal" very soon!
But, Spring is here! Despite all my complaining, the kids and I have enjoyed our outings. We've had to endure "Dogwood Winter" earlier in the week, but those 70-degree temps are back. Easter weekend looks like it's going to be beautiful!

Here's Ellen "rolling" into Spring. She's 4 months old today, and she rolled over for the first time a couple of weeks ago.

Meeting the Easter Bunny at our church's egg hunt.

The church kiddos (and this isn't all of 'em!).

Vivian at her preschool egg hunt today.

I'm hoping to make it to the rest of the kids' school egg hunts on Friday. Henry's is at 10:00, William's is at 10:30, and Rebecca's is at 11:10. Think I can do it??
