So spring is here, or is supposed to be here. Today is really the first time we have had a really warm day! In fact, Mike looked it up! This is the first day to potentially break 70 degrees since last October! Yikes!
I love our town, but sometimes I have to wonder, "why do we live here?" Especially when there are such wonderfully warm and beautiful places all over the world! But this is where God wants us, so here we will stay until He directs us otherwise.
Life is busy here. T-Ball and soccer have started and we look forward to the kids first game this Saturday. So far everything has been canceled due to the rain we have had lately. But the forecast looks good for the weekend, so we are hoping to see the kids play. AWANA is coming to a close and the kids are all enjoying the many theme nights they have there. They have all made a lot of friends and learned a lot of scripture. I am always amazed at the three year olds who seem to learn the scripture verses with no problem and still retain the information months later. Does your memory really get that much worse as you get older, or is it just that we don't try hard enough?
Katelyn is doing great and growing like a weed. People keep commenting on how big she is getting and they are right! She is much taller than our other kids at this age and is already outgrowing her 0-3 month clothes! She is only 8 weeks! She started smiling last week and it has become Mike's goal each night when he comes home from work to try to get her to smile. Such a sweet reward when she finally cracks a smile and coos at him!
