120- Hannah's new love of the phrase "No Thanks"- We are trying to have her use it at the right times and not when it's bedtime or eating time or clean up time. :)
121- President's Day Family Excursion! We now know NOT to ever go back to the "amazing, has been around for 25 yrs" Renasissance Festival, 2 hours away, but we did enjoy the L.O.N.G ride there together as a family & people watching once there! There is a world of Hobbit people and fairy lovers, beyond the realm that we EVER imagined!! Wowzers!
122- Surprise gift boxes from my aunt & uncle back East! Below are some pictures that capture the kids' anticipation & excitement.
123- Thankful that despite a CRAZY..BUSY...SICK week last week from Wed- Saturday, we are all now healthy and rejuvenated. Maybe we need to visit the crazy Hobbit & Fairyland more often!? :)
124- Good friends to test drive new vehicles with my hubby. (We both know ZERO about cars...my father in law is a car sales man- which is super helpful, but we arent in the market for a minivan ...yet... we are hoping for a Suburban or Expedition or Excursion...and our good friend from church sacrificed his whole Sunday afternoon to drive around to give us the low down on vehicles)
125- to piggyback on that, we are thankful that my dad's fast great looking BMW is still driving 247,500 miles later :) But AC -less, and to think of our 3 bambinos in there in the warm spring = child abuse!
126- a very clear sign from work that a move is in our future come end of May... we have friends & family in too many places- so narrowing the state to move is hard, but we think we will be saying farewell to the Grand Canyon State during the heat stroke time :)
127- homeschool thoughts. thankful for convictions from a Godly husband, and for God working in my heart to even think about having the patience and perserverence to teach my own kiddos. Why can I teach 24 strange kids? Yet the thought of my own is pretty daunting!?
The verses about training up a child in the way he should go, and about children learning scriptures at a young age have been convicting us to do more for HIM.
128- Harrison memorized his verses!! He and Hannah are loving their new Sugar Creek movies. We continue to try and tough them out( acting is ummm not there lol) but the morals are, and they love them!
129- No more Cable TV! As of this Friday, we are unplugged! DVD's or Hulu will be our new entertainment should we need or want or find time for it.
130- BOB! Bob - our stroller- bright orange Jogger, which now can be used as travel system, because.....Britax bought BOB- so we have our BOB/Britax matching carseat for our sweety when he is ready to come :)
Enjoy some photos :)
Enjoy the Lord & all He can & will do for you.
( still waiting for their surprises from my Auntie Jacki & Uncle Glenn! & notice our new baby girl in the car seat :) )
MONKEYS! Hannah's fave animal ever!!
