I'm back in the saddle again!!!

I saw this on quite a few of my bloggy friends sites so I decided to see how I ranked too! These are all the states I have visite so far over my lifetime. Man I guess I need to work on those poor Northern states huh?

So I finally stopped moving for just a little bit this morning to look at a few blogs and this is one of the first that I saw....I was so touched that I wanted to share it with y'all too!
10 Things I want my children to know
When they are moms and in the season I'm in right now, there are some things that I want them to know...

1. I don't always know what to say
2. I don't always have all the answers
3. I can't fix everything
4. I pray daily and ask God for wisdom, for help in knowing what to say, how to answer you or help you fix life's hurts
5. Sometimes all I have to offer is a prayer and hug
6. I want to teach you to love God with all your heart, mind and soul
7. I want to teach you to run to Him for guidance and strength, that your relationship with Him is more valuable than anything this world can offer you
8. I want you to know you are loved, you are beautiful on the inside and that nothing you can do can ever change my love for you
9.Motherhood is the hardest job on earth and I so often feel ill-equipped for the position of mothering children
10. I thank God everyday that He chose me to be your mom and allows me the privilege of walking this hard road with you. Even when it is a rough mommy week, I am still so unbelievably thankful.

so thankful...
and it's worth every minute, every tear, every challenge and every prayer.

Marriage Monday
Sometimes when two marry, out of enthusiasm we misuse God’s idea of oneness. Instead of “and the two shall become one flesh,” we fall into the trap of thinking “and the two shall become one another’s universe.”

We know friends "sharpen" each other as iron sharpens iron, but also "the pleasantness of a friend

springs from their heartfelt advice" (Prov. 27:9-10), another good reason for married people to have godly friendships. Good friends are those who can provide faithful and loving rebuke when we need the "wounds of a friend" (Prov. 27:5-6). I know I'm a better wife because of the godly girlfriends, single and married, God has placed in my life.

Picture this....I am standing at the bathroom mirror plucking my eyebrows. (Ok you might not want to picture it but that is what I was doing.)
My daughter Kendall came up and asked me what I was doing.
ME: I am plucking my eyebrows
ME: Well sometimes you have stray hairs that you need to get rid of
K: Oh, ok. What are those things called?
ME: Tweezers.
K: Well don't you know that those girls on Survivor used scissors....don't you think that you should use those?
(Now obviously if you don't watch Survivor this probably doesn't make any sense but last week there were 2 girls that used scissors to cut each other's armpit and leg hair.....heaven help me if I find her with a pair of scissors trying to do the same!!)

Isaac's viewpoint

The month of March has seen Isaac to the dentist (where he did fabulous for his cleaning), the doctor (who told us that his eyes, ears, nose, throat, & lungs were clear to just suck it up and deal with the allergies!), and many other places around town.
He is content to cuddle a lot but also has a wild streak a MILE wide!
Dear sweet lovey!

Cheering sissy on at soccer

Swinging with daddy

Trying to tackle daddy

My super hero!

First time bowling
Fun with Kendall in the tub

Using a fork is overrated!
And my personal favorites......

It's hard to get housework done with this cutie sleeping on you

Funny his daddy falls asleep like that sometimes too!

Climbing into our bed during naptime.....

Too much fabric shopping
Too much grocery shopping

Life is good!

A glimpse into Kendall's world.....

As promised, I am trying to get the blog caught up! I thought that y'all might like to see what Kendall has been up to the month of March!
Kite flying at her school

Love their bulletin board! It is ADORABLE!!!

Celebrating St. Patty's day with LOTS of green food!

Making a trap to catch that sneaky little leprechaun.

I’m a little leprechaun,
All dressed in green.
The tiniest man,
That you ever have seen.

I came to your room,
So what do you think.
I was here and gone,
As quick as a wink.

I danced all around,
And made a small mess.
But I left a surprise,
That’s sure to impress.

The trap that you made,
Was a fine one, indeed.
I barely escaped,
By the skin of my teeth.

So one more thing,
As I leave, yet again.
Her class didn't succed in catching him......
and WHEW what a big mess he left all over their room!
Just ask Kendall about it!
3 games into the Spring JASA soccer season.

I love their faces!

Life is good when daddy is coaching your soccer team!

Bowling with Mommy and Daddy's life group

hard at work

Gotta glam it up a little bit too!

Our walk after school and ladies bible study.....can't beat a 70 degree day in the middle of March!

The night before Momo's surgery
1 last crazy family photo!

Kahlua is not much for pictures!

Our annual Valentine's day stone.
Our last memory of Geronimo's leg and paw

Our kids love their Mo-man

Such a sweet, hansome boy

2.5 days post-op

3 days post-op

4 days post-op

The morning of his surgery.
You can see he is not bearing any weight on the right front paw because of the painful tumor.
