My friends, it has been forever! (Not a big surprise though, huh? :)) So here's quick run-down of the latest major happenings.
Well, we are now moved into our house and we are absolutely loving it. My favorite part is getting to send the children OUTSIDE to play in our huge backyard. They love it, too. :) And it's nice to have room in the house for just nothing for a change. Now it's time to start seriously decorating the place. First, I need money though. :) Anyway, I am going to create an entire blog post of just house pictures once I finish this because it wasn't putting the pictures in right when I just tried. Ahhh, technology. :)
School is almost finished here. Our last day is May 27th. Hannah will be attending a charter school next year for second grade! I can't believe my little 7 lbs. 12 oz. baby is almost 7! And my other "baby" will be 4 in July! I will be doing some preschool with her at home next year. It will be fun to spend the one-on-one time with her that I got to do with my oldest when I did preschool with her. Can't wait for summer break, though. No more lesson plans for this teacher! :)
We continue to love our church more and more and find ways to get involved. I am teaching the 3 and 4 year olds at church on Wednesday nights this summer...since we don't have cubbies during the summer. It's so much fun. They have so much energy and are so teachable. And I am constantly amazed at their simplistic (and rightly so) view of God. I am praying that I can help their understanding of God and how He wants us to behave and ultimately, help them understand salvation, of course. So I have been enjoying putting together different teaching aides...Gospel fuzzies (http://quirkymomma.com/2010/gospel-fuzzies/), the Wordless Book, stuff like that. It is fun for me because I love to teach. Although my degree is in high school education, the desire to teach is just that...to teach, no matter what the age group. Anyway, I'm excited! Can you tell? ;)
Oh, and this June is going to be a busy one! My sister-in-law and her husband and three boys will be coming to visit us very soon. They're only staying for the weekend, but it will be great to see them. Then, the next weekend, my brother is getting married! I'm a bridesmaid, my husband is a usher, and the girls are flower girls/candle holders. Wow. That is going to be a busy weekend. Then, the next weekend, my husband's youngest brother is getting married in Virginia! So we'll be able to see all of his family and spend time with them...especially all of the cousins. My girls are excited about that. :) Then it's Rebekah's birthday the beginning of July...and on and on and on. I'll be sure to bore you with details later. So that's just a quick catch-up of all the fun stuff happening here. Now I'm off to get pictures of the house put up!
