It doesn’t get much better than 70 degrees and sunny. When you add bubbles….BONUS! We’re loving this amazing weather and all the opportunities it affords, including….bubbles!
I’ve fallen in love with collages. (And pairing it with my long time love of photo editing…glorious!) I’ve decided that if I can do one “creative” thing each day, it helps to get me past all the mundane parts. So there’s my daily dose of creativity. 🙂
An update on the “five roddas”…
Stan | So proud of my amazing husband! This campus pastor thing is brand new for him and he’s learning and growing and taking it all in stride. Right now he’s doing a lot of prep for our Easter event. You should check out the details here. Excited that he’ll be preaching this week. He is my favorite, after all! Stan’s just being an all around great leader for our family and I have to pinch myself sometimes, because he’s pretty fantastic and I feel crazy blessed.
Me | Being a wife and a momma and loving those things. Entertaining a lot of dinner guests and preparing for several house guests in the upcoming weeks. Needing to print those resumes and get them to pre schools but still feeling, for some reason, really apathetic. (Had about a week of excitement and lost it.) Seeking what God is wanting from me. Wishing I had that camera I’m dreaming of, so I could start my photography business, which is really my heart’s desire.
Grant | Continuing to amaze me by saying things like “I really like studying economics in school.” (He’s in 1st grade, for goodness sakes!) Struggling with bike riding, but getting better with each practice session. Totally obsessed with all things Mario right now and has even started a “Mario club” with his best bud, Ryan. Still as head strong as ever and challenging us with new and different sorts of parenting dilemmas as he grows. 🙂
Ashton | As sweet and empathic as ever. He’s such a boy and yet so sensitive at the same time. Loving being able to be outside and soaking up as much sun as he can get. He is also obsessed with all things Mario now, but thankfully the great weather has been a distraction! Begging and pleading to do something “extra curricular” (although that’s not the term he uses). I really need to check into Tae Kwon Do or the possibility of getting him on a little league team for the sumer. (Although, sadly, I think we missed the cut off….and it’s ridiculously expensive, so we’ll see!)
Avary | 3 years old! Can you believe it? Well, maybe you can, but I can’t! Such a socialite. When we are out of the house, there is no one she won’t talk to. Loves finding out people’s names, interests, age and weight. (I know, embarrassing, right?) I love watching her rule the neighborhood. She keeps all the boys in line with her munchkin voice and wagging finger. And she’s amazingly active! The girl is so tiny, but so fast and agile. It’s almost funny to watch! She really is our princess.
I have all these blog topics rolling around in my brain, but when I sit down to write them, they just don’t come out right. So for now, you’re stuck with pictures and updates. 🙂 Honestly, that’s probably what most of you prefer anyway, but writing is like therapy for me. So I’m wishing I could come up with words to express all these thoughts/feelings I have. Maybe soon.
