What I've Been Up To Lately

It's been over a month since my last post! So much for my goal of blogging more faithfully in 2010. Saying that I have been busy would be a tremendous understatement. I won't bore you with all the details of my busyness, but I will update you on three recent big events in our family.
~~ This handsome little man is now a decade old. He wore the elbow and knee pads for about ten minutes. I haven't seen them since.
~~This pretty little lady is now 16 6. She is now reading fluently on her own and still loves Happy Meal toys.
~~ My gorgeous Bookworm turned 12. We'll be locking her up and throwing away the key real soon.
So, three of the four kiddos have had birthdays in the span of a month. If that doesn't keep a mom on her toes and her wallet empty, nothing will! They have all been doing their best on their schoolwork and staying on the honor roll. Other than typical allergy issues, we have been illness-free this winter, praise the Lord! My handsome hubby is even busier than I have been with co-pastoring a large church, teaching college classes, and preaching occasionally at other churches. I am so thankful for him! He is the best daddy, and he shows his love for all of us every day. Things are going well at school. Last week we invited all of the students' grandparents to the school for a special fun-filled day. We're currently finishing up a very successful book fair. Hopefully we'll be adding close to $1,000 worth of books to our library from the proceeds. Re-enrollment for next year is in full swing, and I'm already scheduling interviews with prospective families wanting to enroll for the fall term. I've been waiting for life to slow down, but I'm finally realizing that this season of our lives is just going to keep on being a busy one. In the midst of our crazy schedule, we're probably spending more time together as a family than we ever have before, still serving the Lord together as a family. It's all about perspective.

Oh my goodness, you're children have grown so much! And yes, you will need to lock up your beautiful daughter very soon!
You are one busy lady, and doing what God has called you to do. Enjoy this time, as I'm sure you've been told before, it goes waaayy too fast.
Good to hear from you.

I was just thinking of you this a.m. as I heard the news that our school district was cancelled due to our first HUGE snowstorm of the season here in NYS. We are getting LOTS of it and yesterday driving was dangerous. I told my husband that a trip to Florida would be lovely.....lol...
so good to read what you all are up to. God is Good!!

Hi dear friend.
I was so happy to see that you had a new post today! I can completely understand about the busyness of life! And you are definately at one of the busiest seasons of your life, so ENJOY-ENJOY-ENJOY!!! Scot and I think occasionally that maybe things will slow down a bit, but if it did, we probably wouldn't know what to do! ha. Your children are very handsome and beautiful and they look very happy! Continue making those precious moments. Good to see you in Blogland today!
Have a great big happy day!

You were on my mind this morning! So glad to hear from you and be updated on your 'doings'. Your children are growing so fast - a very handsome son and beautiful girls. God has blessed you much.

You have been very busy but it sounds like things are going well, I'm so glad! (o:

I was wondering how you have been doing. So glad everything is well. The days are busy, but the best days of our lives. Actually, when we serve God, all the days of our lives are the best ones : )

So glad things are going so well after your move. It's hard to believe that time is passing by at warp speed!

Blessings to you,

Trixie

All your busy-ness sounds quite rewarding and enjoyable. Birthdays! Wow! You really do have them all at once. Happy belated to them all. And I agree ... that Bookworm is a beauty. LOCK HER UP!!

Happy weekend to you Mrs. C.

Your children have grown so much! They are all beautiful...okay, your son might not like that adjective. He's very handsome. :) I'm glad to hear that things are growing and going well for the church and school!

Glad it has been good events that are keeping you so busy! I can't believe how big your babies are getting... I remember first reading your blog and your youngest was potty training -- now she's reading and going to school!

I'm sure your hubby has his gun collection ready for polishing should any young men start lining up at the door -- and if he doesn't, then I think you should start investing! ;)
