Man oh Man!!!

It seems like no matter how determined I am to keep this blog updated, it just doesn't happen!!! Being a Mommy to 3 takes surprisingly more time and work than being Mommy to 2!! It's probably also partly because Grant is 11 months old....he keeps me pretty busy all of the time. But here we's the latest.

I ended up NOT taking the job in Rockwall due to the fact that the pay was extremely low and it would actually end up COSTING me money to go to work me crazy but I don't think that's what any of us are looking for in a job. SO, I'm back to being a SAHM full-time and working my MK business.

Both of the girls are doing exceptionally well in school. When the last report cards came out Kamri had all A's and Ryann had all A's with the exception of one B. She struggles sometimes in math.....but so did I. I don't know that I EVER got an A in math and I graduated in the top 10% of my class with a full scholarship to college. So, we're working on it.....but I'm very proud of both of them for all of their hard work.

Steve and I started taking Financial Peace University at our church this month. And so far I L-O-V-E it!!! I think it's going to make a HUGE impact on our lives. I can't wait to see how much we are going to benefit from all of this information. It's going to take some hard work, but I believe that we both understand the implications of NOT planning for our future.....and neither of us want that outcome.

Grant is 11 months old now.....he'll turn one on March 16th.....just a few short weeks away. I can't believe that I'm already planning his first birthday! It seems like the past year has just flown by! He's not walking yet, but he's trying.....and as far as teeth go, there are still only 4 as of right now. He's been saying "DaDa" for as long as he's been making noise it seems, but lately he's actually trying to say "MaMa". However, it sounds more like "BwaBwa" when it comes We'll get there. He learned how to play Patty Cake this month as well. So now anytime you say "patty cake" to him he claps his little hands and gives you a HUGE smile!! I love how happy he is!!

Unfortunately, our family has dealt with a lot of sickness in the past couple of months. First, Grant had strep the week before Christmas.....and then I ended up sick the week of!! Then we started the new year and thought everyone was going to be fine. Well, beginning of February rolls in and Ryann ends up with a stomach bug that lasted for several days. The Kamri gets strep and later the same week, Grant gets strep again. Kamri and Grant have BOTH dealt with secondary infections.....but are finally on the road to recovery! Thank you Lord!! Between sick days and snow days (That's right.....we had 5 or 6 in a two week period), my schedule has been all sorts of upside down!!

Steve is starting a new job next week at Orr Nissan in Greenville. We really don't know what to expect of this new opportunity, but we believe that it was sent to us from God, and we're really excited about it!

Other than that, not too much happening here in our little house. We are living in His blessings and taking each day as it comes. : )
