Maggie had a two day volleyball tournament in Providence, Rhode Island this past weekend. It required leaving by 6:30 am and getting home around 3 pm on Saturday, then repeat on Sunday, only to watch her lose ALL OF HER GAMES. Good thing she loves the sport, because boy is her league terrible.

Andrew flew out to Pittsburgh to visit Franciscan University for the long weekend. He said he played a lot of beach volleyball on the sand courts behind my old dorm, a lot of frisbee games and hung out with JP and his friends. They had a bonfire one night and ate out another night. Andrew texted us that he missed our home cooking already, as the cafe food wasn't cutting it.
I asked JP to send me any pictures while Andrew was visiting, and I got this in reply. A typical teenager in his typical state no matter what actual state he's in.
Apparently a lot of JP's friends thought Andrew looked like the actor who played Albert Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie:
I can see it.
Andrew sent me a photo from a philosophy class he sat in on.
The screen says "Does obligation regarding certain types of actions have an intrinsic or an extrinsic source?"
Andrew said "I was so lost."
He visited the soccer field and met with the coach, who asked him to send him some game film.
Andrew put together this highlight reel that I wanted to post for memory's sake. Spoiler alert: Lots of speed and lots of headers (yikes!).
His flight got in late on Monday night and he didn't get home until 12:30 am. Phil is an absolute hero for doing the early morning (5 am) drive to the airport on Friday and the late night pickup on Monday. I seriously married wahahahay up.
The Ice Cream Cottage is coming along very nicely - look how cute it is!

All of the work that Phil has been doing at the Ice Cream Cottage has made him a sore man each evening. I found this pain relief cream that he says really helps. Well I'm sure the massages are equally as helpful :)
We had a friend over for dinner on Sunday night, and I made these delicious and easy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas. I separated the chicken and onions/peppers for the picky eaters but you can put them all on one tray.
They were a total hit, and the leftovers made great quesadillas for lunch the next day (we like the Mission low carb tortillas). I brought lunch to my hard-working men down at The Cottage:
And that was another busy weekend in the books. This week is April break and we are hoping to squeeze in a few fun activities for the kids. Stay tuned :)
