Rain rain go away....

Another day of rain...
I NEED to find a pair of rain boots for Izzy so we can go out and play! I'm hoping the rain will disappear for the next few days because I have plans to hit the beach tomorrow and pool Thurs/Fri with friends. But if not... we'll have fun inside riding Isabella's princess bike and playing with her grocery cart. LOL

Isabella...
I forgot to share that Isabella got her first Raggedy Ann doll (an authentic one... LOL... thanks Grammy and Pappy) and she just loves it. She's really gotten into hugging her toys and it just makes me smile when she picks up the doll and gives her a great big hug. She walked backwards for the first time today and it was so funny to watch because you could see in her eyes that she was excited about what she had discovered. She's also grown in her climbing abilities... standing on her walking toy and bike. My goodness she is growing so quickly... SOOOO much fun to watch. We had her giggling like crazy today and it's just so precious to listen to.

Me...
I feel like I've been very superficial lately and feel that my priorities have gotten way out of whack. I'm making some changes in my life and that's always hard but I know I'll be happier, less stressed, and more focused on what really matters. So hopefully in the next few days I'll have some deeper thoughts to share. My brain seems to have shut down.

Contest...
I didn't make it to the next round of the contest but that's totally okay with me. I'm really proud of myself for making it as far as I did and proud of the lo's I created and the different styles I tried. I'm thinking about completing the rest of the challenges for fun but only if time allows.

Children's Church...
I'm so excited to report that after this Sunday... I won't be responsible (unless necessary) for teaching Children's Church! This means... I HAVE TEACHERS!!!!!! What an answer to prayer! This new set-up has been AWESOME! We started new songs last week and the children sang along... all of them... and if they didn't know the words they still did the motions! They are paying more attention to story time and they understand how to act when we are praying. (meaning no talking or playing) I'm just so thrilled about this and anxious to be able to worship with the adults for awhile.

Off to bed... will be an early morning!
