Can someone please remind me what blogging is???!! J 

I know I’ve been terrible.  I haven’t written since the end of January.  Poor Kirby, I didn’t even write about his birthday.  I’ll catch that up.  Right now I’m just doing this to get myself motivated to start writing againJ.  There are so many things that happen that I know I won’t remember if I don’t write down., I’ll hopefully be back to blogging very soon.  Might be gradually, but I’ll get there.  I’m pondering a different format to make it more smaller posts instead of a big one...we’ll see.  Anyway, I haven’t forgotten about you all...I truly appreciate your willingness to read my babblingsJ

Here are some random thoughts to keep you till I write again (Hope you don’t mind I stole your idea CoreenJ):

*We got around 8 of snow on Wednesday...and most of it is already gone.

*Ben turned 31 earlier this monthJ

*I’m very excited to go on a date with my hubby next Friday...a late birthday trip to Tony Roma’’s been waaaay too long since we’ve been on a date!

*We have yet to do a basement in 2010L

*Benjamin is doing great at school.

*Amanda LOVES hanging out with me & doing any girl things.

*Kirby says the funniest things ever...problem is, it’s not what he says, but how he says it’s really hard to write down.

*I finally got our taxes done this week...and was thrilled to find out we owe less than I think we’ve ever owed for taxes (too bad it still has three zeros behind itL)

*Uncertain work situations are very hard on a marriage & I’m so thankful that God is using this to draw us together & not apart (certainly hasn’t been easy though)

*God is good!

*We’re still praising God for the hail storm last summer...that’s all the work we’ve done all year is hail repairs!

*I’m really excited about a book I just’s about organizing in a way that allows me to relax.

*HIGHLY recommend the book “The Lamb” (devotional for kids 5 & up)...all 3 of our kids learned sooooo much from it...and I LOVE the way it’s laid out...Jesus became so much more real to me too!

*All 3 kids are loving soccer...Benjamin’s in competitive for the first time this year & loves playing more often...this is Kirby’s first year & he’s thrilled to be in it...and Manda is so much more confident this year!

*Ben & I have been working on our ensuite bathroom in the last little bit (it never has been finished since we moved in)...the shower door is up & it’s all painted!!!  Soooo excited for Ben to put it all together tomorrowJ

*I am thrilled to have all 3 kids home again next year!!!

hey - don't mind at all you stole my idea....probably wasn't mine in the first place anyhow! Sometimes I find those kind easier to write cause it's just random thoughts - hard to get all your thoughts out about so many subjects. I know I don't have time for it. Thanks for sharing - I see you are homeschooling all three next year?
