Spring approaches and soccer begins

Despite the 2 days of snow this past week in addition to the 20 degree temperature this morning, supposedly spring is coming to UT. As evidence the soccer season began this past week and Kyle was ready for it. Decked out in his new shiny uniform with his cleets, his team won their first game 8 to 6. Kyle scored the first goal, kicked-off and did a great job covering the goal. In his league they don't worry about positions, but Kyle was frustrated with the "ball-bunch" and made sure that he got into position.
With the approach of Spring we spent the remainder of the day working in the yard. We're attempting to replace about 1/3 of our lawn with wood chips and playground area. This involves killing a lot of grass and moving some sprinkler heads. I'm tired just thinking about it. Can't I go fishing instead?

Ready for spring

We're not being very good about updating our blog. Lauren started doing it, so I left it alone. I guess we need to make it a family effort.
We thought that spring was coming. It started to warm up and all the snow melted. We even started planning to do yard work. Then surprise! Monday morning we had snow again. Now it's cold and threatening more snow. Sigh...
In a way it's a good thing. We have so many plans for our yard this year. We even met with a landscaper to make a plan. Of course that always costs more $$ than we have. We'll have to attack it in stages. The first stage is to kill a bunch of the grass. It makes me sad to think that I'm killing something natural, but we're replacing it with native trees and bushes, so I guess it balances out.
For those interested, I've started to twitter. ( ) This is often refferred to as micro-blogging. I'm doing it mostly for work, but it's a little addicting. If you join, let me know so I can follow you.
