I'm here!

Yes, it's been 19 days since I last blogged.

Yes, we are all alive and well.

Life has been full and I've traveled twice in two weeks.  Bean is taking an accounting class that requires the computer for study and by the time he's done studying, I'm about to go to bed and so blogging has taken a back burner.

What's been going on around here...

Miss Rose is a little more than half way through baseball season. She's still loving it and doing well.  In fact, her team is undefeated! She's had to work a lot on her hitting form, but when she gets it right--she has a powerful swing. It's not uncommon for baseball to consume 3+ days a week right now.

Gracie turned 5 and got a little more of an attitude with the new age. We are excited that she got in to the same school Miss Rose goes to. It's pretty standard for siblings to get in, but we were happy to get the official word. It's a public school, but in another neighborhood so we have to "CHOICE" in to the school as it's better than our nearby one.

Lily is super precocious lately. She is sweet and loving, but picks up attitude from her big sisters and thinks she's way older than 3. She recently pulled a hook rack off the wall while getting a jacket, spilled a cooler of melted ice (aka water) in the living room, and covered the toilet in water from a spray bottle among other things. She is constantly in high heels (either the plastic princess ones or mine) and singing with her toy microphone.

The week after Easter I went to a minister's conference for three days.  And last week I was at a leadership conference for three days.  Each was a two-night stay away from home.  And trying to get all my work done on top of being gone.  I enjoyed my time at the conferences, but they are tiring in their own way and I was happy to get home to my family too.

I'm getting excited about summer. Not being on school schedule, letting the kids stay up later at night and getting to sleep in a bit.  I can't believe when fall comes I'll have two kids in school!  Lily is pretty bummed she's not going to school with them. She keeps saying she's 5 and can go to kindergarten.

I'd like to say I'll blog more, but I can't make any promises. We need a second computer or an ipad, ya know?! I could blog from my phone, but it's not as easy and honestly I just haven't had the energy.

But I'll try, because I do miss this little outlet.
