A BLOG POST! What? Turn down for what????
I know, I know, it's as shocking as it sounds.
We've really been working on managing our time with work, kids, church, and other activities and the blog fell by the wayside. I will not apologize but I have become one of those bloggers I used to talk about all the time!
So, for updates (if anybody cares!), Big Sister turned 8 years old. EIGHT. I know, 8 is awful. She's growing by leaps and bounds. We've made great strides over the past few weeks as I think we have found her issue. We are headed to the Dr. next week to try and confirm. I'm thinking it's just a reaction to red dye found in most EVERYTHING she eats and drinks. She goes crazy (like crazy fits a 2 year old might have) when she's been on that stuff! So, we read labels better and try our best to stay away from it. And I can tell a big improvement.
Baby Sister is still just as sweet as she can be. She gives hugs freely but mostly to her Mama! She is a MAMA'S girl and I love that. She is loving school but can't wait to be at 'big school' with her Sissy (year after next). She is pretty tall and petite for her age but I don't know her stats. She can write her name and tell you her letter! She loves to sing and entertain.
As for Mom and Dad, we work like crazy, then shuffle kids from place to place and try to spend some time together in between. We are looking forward to our next date night April 10th. Yes, I know the day. The shutdown will be over (we hope) and we are going out to celebrate with steaks!
As for Daddy, he has the flu right now. He's a big ole baby but we love him anyway. Maybe one day he will learn to listen to his wife and GO TO THE DOCTOR. Men! Now, honey, DON'T SHARE!
This past month, I was able to tackle one of my biggest fears, yet something I've always wanted to do. I completed the Run Thru History in the Vicksburg National Military Park. This was a race I've always wanted to run but you have to be in darn good shape to do it. I'm not in as good a shape as I was before the holidays but I knew it was now or never. My sweet friend Katrina came along to run with me. Unfortunately she had to drop out halfway through because of a bum knee. And luckily, I had a running buddy waiting for me at the end (she was sick and couldn't race, bummer!). it was not an easy course AT ALL but I did it. I finished and actually had a PR for a 10K. Granted, I've only run 2 of them but still. I was proud to get that monkey of my back.
That is the latest on our household. I can't promise I will get back to blogging regularly but I do want to go back and document a few things from the last few months. Oh, and things like I'm getting another NEPHEW. Sweet Bradley is finally getting that baby brother he wanted! Luke Mitchell will be here in August.
