Well, long time no blogging.... It has been a wild and crazy last two weeks. With getting adjusted to school and WORKING full time... I have been on overload...
Alot has happened in two weeks so here goes..
I indeed started work and I love my job. It has been a HUGE adjustment but Brian has been a tremendous help and we are doing it. The girls love school which in turn makes it easy to keep going each morning. We find ourselves getting up a little later each day of the week, it is kinda funny.... But we have yet to be TARDY!!! YEAH US!! The girls are all making good grades here in the first two weeks and learning thier new teachers. Maddison has FINALLY learned to keep her mouth shout, (per her teacher) (I am not so sure because from 3pm -8:30-- she never shuts up!!! Hannah is so excited about being the class librian. She loves her teacher and is very eager to go to school.. Mikel likes school and has Chancdee' in her class and well they have started planning what they will wear to school... (YES in second grade)
** On another note on the girls, they have officially started sports. I know those of you who know me go no way! Well we have avoided it this long and well it was time. I am excited. Maddison and Hannah are playing soccer, and Mikel is cheerleading. AMAZING.... So what happens is Brian does soccer practice and I do cheerleading. I am excited and Brian well HE HATES soccer.... But he did enjoy watching the girls... I know it will be good for the girls....

Okay on another note our family has had a big change in our lives. I have resigned from my duty at church. I needed time to focus on my family and with work, school, husband and kids there was no more time in my day, week, or in my mind.... We love our church family and the support we have recieved in this decisssion. FYI- we aren't leaving the church, we aren't doing anything different except; cherishing the family time we have.

Well, today is Saturday and we are off and running early. I guess our bodies are on school mode. I awoke at 4 and Maddison and Hannah at 7:30. This weekend will be a fun one... We are heading to the water park to celebrate Maddisons birthday that is Tuesday. I can't believe my baby is TEN.... (more to come on that later)

So have a great Labor Day weekend!!!!
Be Blessed!

First Day!

Well I thought I would just update all and let you know that we all survived the first day. I loved my day as a "working" momma, the girls all did so well. I was very proud.
Maddison signed up for annoucements today... Only 5th graders can do it, oh my baby is getting so big. She also told me she signed up for cross walk gaurd. YIKES!
Hannah said she met a new friend and had lots of old ones. She said she loved being a third grader and loves her teacher!
Mikel was so excited to be a 2nd grader. She was excited that there was some her friends in her class, and she said it was so easy... We will see how she feels in a week or two.

Today in my 4th grade class we were all in a happy mood and accomplished our first day, well....
It is now 8:02 and all kids are in the bed and I am off to take a bath.....
Yes I cooked dinner, (steak and potatoes, green beans) cleaned up and bathed all kids and washed hair and I AM TIRED!

Have a great night!
Until Next time!

I love my Jesus!

It has taken some growing but I am learning to trust only in my Heavenly Father. He cares for me so much more than I ever knew.

The Lord is brought me and my family so far. I am thinking of where we were a yr ago and wow, I don't want to EVER go back there. I am so blesssed and sometimes I am not sure if I realize exactly how blessed I am.

Today I have learned that trusting God is so very rewarding. He always knows what is best for us. I personally have had to grow and keep trusitng HIM. I have never been in a place in my life where I have trusted HIM right now. I trust Him with my home, my marriage, our church, where we are and all of our ministry work as a family. I will tell you now that it has proven to be worth every second of it.
I am so thankful that God has graciously taken us (my family) on as His own. It is nice to have the confidence and the reassurance that GOD is in control of my life. And the hardest thing is, leaving it there and knowing that HE KNOWS MORE THAN I DO! Imagine that!!!!
