Reflecting on the Last Week

A lot of stuff has been going on and today, on my day off, I am trying to take a few moments to reflect on all the great moments.

Our baby girl looked so grown-up and delicate at her dance recital.  She was so poised and beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes.  I hope she continues to love dance, because it is such a joy to watch her perform.

Our baby boy turned 11 this last week.  I always tell him that he is special because he made me a mom!  We enjoyed celebrating with him, with his friends and with our family over the past week!  He is such a smart and talented kid.  We are so blessed to have such great kids!  Happy 11th Birthday, Patrick!

Even though he is 11, he wanted the # 12 on his jersey because that’s his number!

We celebrated Easter by having our annual Easter egg and basket hunt and going out to eat with Pat’s family.  It was excellent food and I didn’t have to cook or clean up any of it!

I was finally able to have a Diet Mountain Dew after 46 days away from it due to Lent.  It wasn’t as good as I thought it was going to taste, which proves to me that I don’t need to have it every day.  Today I am treating myself to a Diet A & W which actually tastes really good!  I was really proud of myself for giving up pop and sticking with something.  There were some definite moments where I wanted to give in, but pushed through.  I have to confess though, that at school as student gave me a root beer float and I drank it without even thinking about it being pop until afterwards.  So, I can’t technically say I didn’t have ANY pop during the 46 days, but for me it was really about giving up the Diet Mountain Dew.  That root beer float was a total accident! I think God will forgive me on that one!

This week begins with a band concert for Patrick tonight and concluding with an elementary music program for our daughter Reagan, soccer for all 3 kids, piano recitals for Patrick and Bennett, flag football for Bennett and hosting a garage sale!  It will be a busy week ahead and can’t believe the month of May will begin on Sunday.  I guess it is always better to be busy with activities rather than sitting at home watching TV!  May your week ahead be full of activities and blessings to reflect on.
