I am painfully behind on my blog... I wanted to give a quick update!
Lily-Sweet (and somewhat sassy) is going to be 13 in May! I am already party planning. I picked up the cutest little ice cream cone pillows for party favors.
Carson-I think 4th grade is my favorite age and grade. Not too young. Not too old. They still like toys but can handle the bigger things too. Freeze Buddy! You are the baby, and growing up too fast.
Clayton-What a journey Clayton has been on. Last Friday he had surgery for his back injury at the Mayo Clinic. Bless him. He has really been through a lot. I really need to devote a post to his injury, and how it has shaped him.
Carsons Christmas list to current day it has been really something.
Carson has wanted to wear the suit every Sunday at church. I was somewhat embarrassed by it...Then I realized it was honestly Carsons way of giving Jesus his best. He also believes church is a "special occasion". Carson doesnt notice that he is the only one dressed that way. He doesnt mind if he wears it week after week....
How crazy! I CANNOT post without a picture so I snapped one with the webcam! I am hear at Prudential Real Estate. I have moved real estate offices and I LOVE IT HERE! I am moving forward and learning more and more! Learning something new is a challenge but each day I am feeling more confident.
Lets play a little catch up! Caron is loving the 4th grade. I feel like he has more homework than ever before, but we are managing to plow our way through. Today was Constitution Day at school so The Mr. headed there early to catch their sweet play.
Lily is thriving in 7th grade. She is super smart, organized, and stays on top of all her assignments. She can hold her own for sure. She loves doing her Bible Studies and has started listening to music in her room. She loves her bed made. She loves dressy clothes. Its super cute the way she is. She is a cranky bear when she gets overtired. She is still really good about putting herself to bed if need-be.
Clayton is a teen with a capital T...Teen. He is way too big for his britches. BUT still super duper smart. He is a great kid and thank heavens is staying out of trouble. All the excitement of having a cell phone is over, and no longer cares if he looses that privilege. The best place to stick it to him now is with the Play Station. It is highly effective. He was recently invited to the National Honors Society. How proud could a mother be? What a big deal! I feel a big dinner and cake coming on!
If there is one thing that I am most certain about is I need to be committed to prayer. Prayer concerning every aspect of their little lives. It is the one single thing I can't afford to be a slacker about!
Hello from Arkansas! I am glad you are here! I love my Jesus, and my family, antiques, all things home, sweet tea, monograms, my church, the beach, and long baths. Oh yes, I get by with a little help from my friends. . . love them too! Come on in, Honey.
