March has been a busy month. A good busy. I'm gearing up to lead a discipleship breakout at our women's retreat so I've been working hard on that, finalizing our Spring Break trip, and starting to come to the acceptance of a certain someone's 40th birthday right around the corner.
It's been a good exercise of the heart. I am starting a countdown to 40 just to get ready for being Forty and FABULOUS!
But until then, here's some fun and random things going on in March. Firstly, Micah is loving tae-kwon-do. He is counting in Korean and even has Caelan memorizing how to count to 10 and say thank you. "Kom Som Nee Dah"
Since daylight saving, the boys have been off their schedule a bit---mostly Tristan. Here's a cute cuddly picture in the morning before the sun comes up as the two older boys oblige Tristan as he gets dibs on his favorite show: Chuggington.
One of our family nights, we decided to make homemade pizza and we had a pizza off. Who's tasted better? Patrick's was on the left (thin, cheesy, unpolished) and mine is on the right (thick, cute, and gourmet-looking). Neither one of us won because we each thought ours tasted better than the other.
Speaking of food, I've been bringing over meals to tons of new moms and I figured out a way to bless them and save money for our family! At Wegmans, you can get what they call $6 meals---a meat and two sides. OR...... no one knows this---- you can get no meat and 4 sides! Well, for four sides ($6) and a cooked rotiserrie chicken ($5), you can get a family of five dinner for under $11. The Caesar salad is not pictured here because I ate it all before dinner. :-)
Also exciting news! Our six year lost his first tooth. We were struggling about the tooth fairy (like we did with Santa and the Easter Bunny) so we told Micah that there is a thing called the tooth fairy and it's pretend. She will leave you money underneath your pillow, but the tooth fairy is really mommy and daddy. He seemed to be okay with all of that, as he was ecstatic about his dollar under his pillow the next morning!
Last random update is for those that contributed to my mom's church building fund. With your help, we raised close to $2,000. I praise God for your faithfulness in giving. Thank you, thank you!
We can't wait to have her back. The boys keep asking for her. Unfortunately, we will be away for Spring break when she gets home!
Aggh...maybe my mom can help me get prepared for the big 4-0. Let the countdown begin to May!!
