It's been crazy around here...
I don't feel like I have had time to even catch my breath! It's a good crazy I guess...but crazy none the less. We have been super busy with school, church, sports...and photo shoots! I have had a photo shoot every weekend for the best 2 months and most of the time I have had more than one. I have loved it, but boy am I ready for a break from it!
Ric leaves for Ecuador in a few short days and we are super excited for him. A team from our church is going over to be there for the finishing of the church building in Zhud. It has been a neat process to be a part of and I can't wait for the days ahead when we really get in and minister to the people of the hill. I am sad that I am not going, but I just didn't feel like this was the time for me to go. I will stay home and tend to my flock here...and pray that I make it by myself for a week!
The kids are in a Christmas parade tomorrow night and are so excited. They are singing "Little Drummer Boy" and Jesse has parumpumed all over our house for the past few weeks. He loves to sing! I am excited to go watch them and cheer them on!
Basketball has started and I am coaching two teams...what was I thinking?? I am coaching both of my girls again and am really excited for the season to get underway. Addie is a natural...and Shelby has an amazing shot for a 6 year old.
Charlie is playing cello at school and I so hope he sticks with it...I love hearing him practice! It is such a beautiful instrument. Addie has taken up violin and I love it as well...it's the one instrument that I wish I had learned to play. I love music and hope that my kids stay passionate about it!
Shelby Jean is just taking off at school. She is reading so good. If she doesn't know a word, then she will spell it out for me and ask me what it is. It only takes one time and then she knows the word. I am amazed at how she soaks things up!
I am going to try and get back in the swing of things with my blog...I have fallen way behind and have just been in a writing funk! Looking forward to getting back on here and keeping my family updated on the Blazi happenings!
