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.
