April 2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote anything here! So I thought I'd do a spring update!!!!

The kids are growing fast. Super fast.

Breelee is rolling her eyes now. She's not even 18 months old yet. It is unbelievable. She loves reading books and singing songs. She's a sweet, silly girl. She makes all of us laugh. She is saying lots of words, but my favorite is to hear her say "Bella" and "Bubba." It is so precious...and it totally melts my heart! She is still having breath-holding spells, but now that we know what they are, we can handle doesn't make it fun or easier, but at least we can cope with it! Hopefully she will grow out of it by the time she's 2!

Brennan is so tough...a bruiser and a destroyer of all things...usually because he's pretending to be the Hulk. He loves to pick up toys and throw them on the ground. He's been singing a lot lately...and his current favorite song is the "Itsy Bitsy Spider." He is fascinated with anything drum related....and before I know it he will be playing music with his dad. He's a handsome man just like his daddy.

Bella is a beautiful girl. She is drawing all kinds of things, writing her name, spelling words, sounding words out, and will be reading big ol' chapter books before we know it. Her preschool teacher tells us that she's the most helpful child in her class...and she is a great friend to the other students! She's smart and funny and has her dad's musical abilities as well! She loves loves loves being outside...whether it is snowing or scorching hot! She says she misses Louisiana, but she loves living in Colorado.

It's hard to believe that we've been in Colorado for almost 2 years!!! Sometimes it feels like we've been here longer. We love it...absolutely love it.

We know that God has brought us here. There is no doubt in our minds about that.

It has not been the easiest thing we've ever done. The days are long but the weeks seem to go by so fast. We get tired and may even feel drained, but the joy of the Lord is our strength.

God keeps providing for our family in creative, unique ways. It is amazing and humbling to experience it.

My faith is stronger for it, though.

We've been setting goals as a family. It is fun to check them off of our list as we accomplish them!  Lee and I are at the place where we are about to set some goals for the next 90 days. Health goals. Financial goals. Spiritual goals. Time goals.

It's a good place to be.
