Also, Nebraska Softball’s Bredwell earns BIG Freshman of the Week

This past weekend we spent Easter at my parents’ house. There were eight adults and nine children staying in the house from Friday night until Sunday, with another adult joining on Saturday night and four more coming up on Sunday. While there was plenty of room to sleep, the house seemed a bit crowded.

There isn’t a big enough common area for that many kids, and kids don’t like to stay in one place for very long, so they were into everything. It helped when they were able to go outside, but the mornings were pretty frigid and made for the house to feel even smaller.

Aside from the small space, it did turn out to be a pretty good weekend.

Now here are your flakes.
