No matter your circumstances, God will provide!!!

Spring break plans

Once again, the weekend is gone. Logan was here Friday night and slept all night for me. Considering he is almost 2, I was very happy :-)

Saturday morning Danny had to work. I loaded all 5 kids up (the girls each had a friend over) and we went to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast. 5 kids, coffee and sugary sweetness. What was I thinking???

After a stop at Sam's and the grocery store, we came home and Taylor and I made 10 gallons of laundry detergent. This is my first attempt at it, but if it works, I will be making more. It
was so cheap and easy to do!

We are getting ready to start a remodel on our upstairs bathroom. The previous owner installed a shower many years ago, covering a window. We have been noticing some moisture problems, and decided to pull out the old shower enclosure and start from scratch. I ordered the new faucet I wanted off of Ebay on Sunday. We will begin demolition this week :)

We have some friends coming over to do a business presentation this evening. I am very excited to hear about what they have found. More updates to come on that!

Spring break will be here in a few weeks and we want to take the kids to the Wilderness Indoor Water Park in Gatlinburg. I have been reading some "not so good" reviews online. I realize this is a "kids" vacation, and by no means will be relaxing for Danny and I, however, some of the reviews I am reading are really making me think twice. I'm going to keep researching and looking at options.

Snow :)

Its a nice snowy Sunday. A good day to just lay around inside and watch it snow. I had to send Danny and Taylor on a grocery seeking exbidition. I hope they are able to find some bread and milk :-)

Last week seemed to be a long week. Baily started tennis practice every day after school. Her coach is a good friend of ours and lives fairly close, so she is able to carpool with her. That is a nice bonus.

Logan spent the night Friday night. He changes so much from week to week. He will point at the Tv now and say "watch" So cute. We took him home on Saturday afternoon and picked up one of Bailey's friends to stay the night.

Danny and I had been enjoying a family series on Netflix called No Ordinary Family. Unfortunately, the show never made it past the first season. We enjoyed our daily 40 minute "date" every evening, so we have begun to watch Lost. By the end of season 1, episode 1, we were both hooked.

Today, the snow began to fall early. It is still snowing, the grass and trees are turning white, and it is very pretty. We all have a 3 day weekend, so a little laziness is in order for the rest of the day.

Wow what a week!

The first of the month is typically a busy one for me at work. This week was just that. I always get overwhelmed by the amount of work I need to get accomplished, but somehow it always comes together by the end of the week.

Taylor spent the week learning how to be Orville Wright. He had to complete a biography and timeline. Today he will give a report in costume for his class. This is his first major assignment and he has worked very hard on it. We all learned a little about The Wright Brothers this week!

On Wednesday, Danny and I received word from school that a bomb threat had been made. Now, I realize this probably happens quite often in the big city schools, but here in our little town, it was a pretty scary deal. School was delayed for 2 hours on Thursday to give police a chance to search for anything suspicious. The students were then searched on their way into the building. Luckily, the day went uneventfully.

I am having problems with my blog updates. For Christmas this year, Danny bought me a Kindle Fire. I absolutely love it! I use it constantly for the internet. However, when I use it to update my blog posts, it will only accept so much text and it will not let me complete the post. I then have to log onto my laptop to finish. The laptop is slow and on its last leg, so I find myself constantly putting off the blog. I am hoping to find a resolution to this soon.

The weekend has passed quickly and, as usual and here we are at the beginning of a brand new week.
