All Things New

I love Spring, it is for sure my favorite. There is something in the air that triggers you to clean out your house, put things in bags for garage sales, spend hours outside, and well....get back to blogging. I think there are just some seasons that seem overwhelming and blogging doesn't make it on the list. BUT...I'M BAAACK!

One of my dear friends from Houston Northwest had her baby boy yesterday, Colt Hudson. He was born early, weighing in at 8 lbs. 15 oz. Stacie is very glad that he came early before he got bigger! She called me yesterday about an hour after he was born said, "Hey", like I was about to have a normal conversation with her. I said, "Uh..did you have the baby?" Her reply was, "Yeah, about an hour ago, everyone is off with the baby." No sweat off her brow...she was just glad to be in her by herself. I went with some friends to visit her last night and he is a cutie...perfect in every way.

Since Stacie is busy with her third child, I am stepping in for her to lead a home wednesday night student bible study. I am way excited to meet some students from my new church and teach for a couple months. That starts tonight and I am hoping for us to gel! I am apprehensive about Keegan and Jack staying up till 9pm, so you can pray for that. (They are coming with me!) Jonathan is teaching Financial Peace on Wednesday nights, so we have to do what works!

Jack is making life so much easier these days! I think he is dropping his morning nap which makes more time for errands and fun activities. Both boys are on the same schedule, so Mom now has her afternoon to herself.

Lastly, this Spring I am planting some flowers. It is a first and I have a great yard to do it in. Geraniums and Impatiens. We will see if they last. Some of my Geraniums are withering and not getting enough sun, so hopefully I can fix that problem and move my pot. I have a neighbor that is widowed and she spends her time gardening. She is so sweet and great at what she does. So I visit her and she helps me know my plants. She is so precious that Marilyn. I do feel a little better that her Geraniums are withering too and it is not just my inexperience.

Spring lifts my spirit. I lerve it.

So glad to see you back at blogging. I've missed you. Think I will have to make the Grand Tacos for dinner one night. I think Roy will love them.

you should send the boys with Jonathan. Cade would love to play with Keegan on Wednesday nights!! We leave at 8, but childcare lasts until 9.

Hey Girl, it's so good to be able to keep up with you through your blog! We love spring as well and are outside just about every day! I can second you comment on one of your older post, "who needs the gym? just raise 2 boys!"...I'm just raisin' 4 of 'em!!! I LOVE it. I'm so glad to see you all are doing well.
