Oh lately. Where do I begin? These last few months have been absolutely busy yet so rewarding. School has been passing by so quickly and I can’t believe that my daughter’s kindergarten year is more than half way over. My son is flying by in first grade and it’s hard to believe that he will be in second grade this next school year. It is so amazing to watch their little souls just grow and learn to read, process math, problem solve, grow with friends, and blossom in these amazing little children. We have had our challenges but God has been with us each step of the way.
We are on spring break this week. Daylight savings time has messed with our sleep schedule a little so I am very thankful it is spring break week so we can adjust. It was beautiful today with lots of sunshine and my hubby was home from work. We were able to grill out our dinner and it was oh so yummy. But don’t think we had a perfect evening. I dumped half a bag (10 lb bag) of sugar on the kitchen counter and floors. That was oh so fun cleaning up! I have swept, mopped, moved the oven, found sugar in the drawer, cabinets, stuck to the grout…..hoping I got every grain of sugar!
We had our first Orthodontic appointment for our son today. Although he is in first grade, he has lots of adult teeth already, and our dentist said he has the teeth of a third grader. So we are starting phase one in the next few months with a spacer and braces. Our first phase will be twelve months long. I am worried about his diet since he is our picky eater and we will have some challenges but in the long run it will all be worth it.
Speaking of picky eaters. Guess what! He tried watermelon. He is still not sure about it but he tried it! He also has started eating chicken salad sandwiches with me! We had to improvise with ingredients like no grapes, apples, anything crunchy but it’s a huge step for us in our food with him.
I am currently reading Restless and I am challenged in my personal life with where I am, my journey, my purpose, my gifts, and how I use all of these together. If you are looking for a book to read to challenge you to dive deeper in your walk of faith with Jesus Restless is a great book. Jennie Allen draws you closer in such a humbling way.
My daughter lost a tooth this week. She was so excited to lose it at school. I was actually subbing that day and had lunch duty so I was able to pull it for her. We gave her a tea set this week that was from her great-grandmother and have had tea parties all weekend.
Hope you are having a great spring break with your families.
