Update on life...

In my last post I promised that it wouldn't be 2 weeks before you heard from me again....and it wasn' was 3 weeks!!!  Phew.....where has the time gone?

In the past 3 weeks we have done a lot....

Kyler and I made our first trip to Silver Dollar City.  Richard wasn't able to go with us because we went during the week and he had to work.  We had a great time and Kyler loved riding the roller coasters and various rides!  He and his cousin, Bailee, are very adventurous and tried any ride we took them on!  Love that I have a "thrill-seeking" child :)

We finished up our soccer season.  I'm not gonna lie...I'm a bit happy about this.  It will be nice to have our Saturday mornings back.  Kyler enjoyed playing.  He wasn't very aggressive and typically just followed the other kids around but he did manage to make one goal.....we are counting it....even if it was in the wrong goal!! 

We celebrated Mother's Day!  My boys were amazing.  They first made me breakfast in bed....pancakes and then Richard got Ky all ready for church so I could take my time and enjoy getting ready in peace!  After church we went to a mini-fair called Barnyard Days.  I loved it!  It was super hot but I got to do a little shopping.  I got a few pieces of jewelry, a painting for my new classroom, and some homemade salsa (for those of you who don't know, I am a huge Mexican food fan).  It was a great day to just enjoy with my family and to be pampered!

This past week I got to go up to the school, where I will be teaching, and look at my classroom.  They also asked me to come show them where I wanted my SmartBoard.  So excited that I get one in my room!  For those of you who have no idea what a SmartBoard is like a projector/whiteboard.  You can hook it up the internet and use various website for teaching tools.  You can also write on it (with special pens) as though it was a white board.  It is a great resource to have in any classroom but since I will be teaching Math I feel like the sky is the limit with this tool!  So excited!!!

We are still living with my mom....not ideal AT ALL....but we are praying about a few options right now and should know something within the next week or two.  Hopefully we will be in our own place by June 1! 

That about sums up our life in the past 3 weeks.  We are all doing well and excited about what God has in store for us and our future! 
Be blessed!

Love to you all~

PC....Richard might lay down the law with Dollywood...The only reason he likes going to Silver Dollar City is because of the food....But all need to come visit us and we can take you to Silver Dollar City! It is Missouri at it's finest!!!!
