We definitely are feeling the winds of change around here. Maybe it's just spring fever. But it feels like God may be shaking things up a bit for us. There are some developments with Derek's job that may prove interesting in the near future If you would, keep him in your prayers especially this week. We will need God's strength and guidance.
It's been an EXTREMELY busy weekend and start to this week. Saturday we were so hoping to attend the HSBC Alumni Connection meeting in Louisville. But there were just too many irons in the fire and something had to go. For one, it was our sweet Cameron's 6th birthday. And celebrating that had to come first. So Saturday night was devoted to our boy's birthday party. I'll post some pics of that later. Then on Sunday afternoon there was huge gathering at my grandparents to welcome home my cousin who is on a 2 week leave from Iraq. This was supposed to be a permanent homecoming, but due the "surge" he's been recalled for 9 more months. He doesn't seem to mind, though. If you think of Johnny, would you pray for his safety there? This will be his THIRD time to return there; seems a little like tempting fate if you believe in such a thing. I really don't. Although sometimes I think I do.....!
This morning, it was first thing to the pediatrician for Reagan's 2 month and Sophie's 4 yr check=ups. How I hate those immunizations! Especially for the babies. Always tears me up. Necessary evil, I suppose. Anyway, our little Reagan is quite the bruiser: 14 lbs and in the 86th percentile. Big boy. And Sophie was so cute. The doctor was asking me all those normal developmental type questions: can she draw a circle? can she count? know her shapes? colors? Sophie was like are you kidding me? I can write my own name and how high would you like me to count?!? It was very funny. Of course, all the funny was gone when it was time for shots. All day long she kept asking me, 'why did you call the dr to give me shots?' Mean ole Mommy.
After that exciting experience, it was off to the dentist for Lauren. That's always a treat. So needless to say, I think I'm ordering pizza for supper. I've done my share today, don't you think?!? We still have a busy week ahead. Derek has a business trip on Wednesday, gets home just in time to take a trip to Indy for his brother's graduation from the Police Academy. Can you imagine your hubby being a cop on the Indianapolis Police Force? Yikes! Pray for him too!
Well, before this turns into a dreary diary I think I'll bring it to a close. No major words of wisdom today. Although I think I may steal some from my hubby's prayer during family prayer a few days back. He said, "Lord, let our speech be concise and our spirits be contrite."
Come to think of it, wouldn't his dad be proud?!?
