Life 365

So today I decided that I don't want to miss anything the girls are doing and I need a way to document the moments that are happening right before my very eyes.......which leads to my next project. It's called Life 365. It starts tonight. What's the deal? Well, each day you take a picture of something that happened on that day. The next day, you blog about it. Sounds simple enough....right? Now I just have to remember to take a picture each and every day. And I will not be able to blog on the weekends since we do not have Internet at home, but I will play catch-up on Mondays. I'm excited about this. I am going to do this. Listen to me talking myself into it. I feel like I sometimes miss out on things I need to document and what better way than this? Let's go for it!

It's been a while..........

It has been a while since my last post. Our lives have been swamped for the last two months. We are making a lot of adjustments. Calleigh is now in preschool 3 days a week and dance class one day a week. Andrew has taken on some new duties at work, so he now not only teaches math he is also the assistant athletic director and is now also the Dean of Students at his school(which is like the Vice Principal!) I have started my new job. I have been here for about 6 weeks and I can say that I am truly blessed to be here. The pay was a nice increase, but I am doing what I went to school for. I am busy all the time, I hardly have any down time, things are different each day, and I love it! Addison is growing like a weed! She is 4 1/2 months and height is 26 inches and weight is 17 lbs! She is beautiful and I love her so much! She is a sweet baby and has made our family of four complete!

I am realizing more and more that I am very blessed to have the life that the Lord has given me. If not for him, our prayers would not have been answered. He gave Andrew and I each other, 2 beautiful girls who are healthy, jobs that we like, and a good life together. In September we celebrated our 6th Anniversary! I look back on the past few years and see that even when I did not know what God's plan was he was busy building me up to this point. I prayed for a good change in our life and when he gave us Addison he also gave us other job opportunities. I prayed for the for a long time and he told me to wait......even though I waited, it was impatiently. Just another lesson he is teaching me. It's all about him and his timing. It always has been. I just have to learn to get out of the way and let God do the work. It is not him that is in the way, it's me.

I will get a post up soon with updated pictures and from this point on I will do my best to post at least 2-3 times a week!
