What We've Been Up To

***Warning this post will be long, but will have a lot of pictures.

Since Naomi's birthday we've been super busy. We had a fun Easter.
Naomi wanted to be like Daddy, she took off the tie before we left for church though :)

We officially became HOMEOWNERS! We closed on the 8th, it recorded on the 9th, and then we got our keys on the 9th. When we went to the house after we closed, we asked Naomi what she thought of her new backyard, she said "this is for my dogs." Some wishful thinking. We spent the first few days trying to choose a paint color. We tried about 8 different samples , maybe more. Naomi loved helping us paint!

We chose the color on the right, it's called Sharkey Gray. A week after closing we paid to have our house painted. Three workers painted it in 9 hours and they did an awesome job. We spent the rest of the weekend finishing packing and moved on Monday the 19th.
Naomi loved helping us load everything up. She was so excited to get everything into our new house. It took only one trip of a trailer and 5 pickup trucks to get everything over to our house.

Naomi's Room

I'll post more on our house when things are organized.

Naomi has also been going to a dance class that a lady in our ward teaches for free at the church. They are getting ready for a recital in May.

This is the kids doing the train. Naomi loves it!

Naomi has also been playing soccer. A friend in my ward and I started a little soccer group. We meet once a week for about 45 minutes. We played a game a couple weeks ago. The kids were funny. They mostly just stood around. Naomi loved kicking the ball around, but once someone took the ball from her she'd start crying. I tried to tell her to get it back and that's what happens, but she was too sad to try. I would also tell her to stop the person from scoring a goal. She would run along side them for a little bit and then stop by them and put her hand up and yell "Stop!"

So that is what we've been up to.

Congrats on the house! How exciting. I can't wait to see more pictures. That's awesome that the lady in your ward is doing free dance classes (I think I'd like to do that someday). Also the soccer story is pretty funny.... don't know if it was supposed to be, but it made me laugh :)
