Surprise Weekend Getaway.

My sweet hubby graduates college in December and I stole him away for a treat. First we went to Levering Orchard and got an eighth of a bushel of apples. Yum! Then we headed to Mayberry and ate lunch at Barney's. We stayed in a neat little B&B and had a lovely view of the Pilot Knob. The next morning we went to the State Park and hiked the Knob. After lunch we went ziplining. The weekend was great and Will loved it! Here are some pics:

Hiking with my Hubby :)

Saturday husband and I are going hiking some local trails. I'm excited! I'm also working up something awesome for Will's graduation gift... We're taking a really neat trip. I'll keep you all updated :)

New things ahead...

In the spring I am transferring to FT to begin pursuing Medical Sonography. I'm thrilled about all of the changes that this will mean for my daily routine. The school accepts 10 (not thousand, or even hundred, or even times 5) just 10 students. I have to be at the top of my game and have strong grades in math and science. Wish me luck!

Yard Sale

Husband and I are having our first yard sale this weekend. We have lots to sale given we've combined all of our "junk" we've collected over the past 20 something years of our lives... I'm excited about it. The weather is going to be nice and maybe we'll make enough money to go to some of the local haunted attractions that are here to celebrate the season :) Wish us luck, and if you're in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello! :D

A Change in Season

~Finally Getting Settled~

Okay... I know, I know. I've been away far too long and I haven't talked about all that is new in my life! I'm sorry. Forgive me? *Sigh, thanks ;) For a minute I was worried. :) Now then, what shall we discuss first? How about the fact that school is amazing? Yes? Oh, yes! I love it. Papers due, and mathematical equations to be solved. Love is the word! And time, well time (knock on wood) hasn't been too far from reach. Sure there have been mid-night Wal-mart excursions and afternoon showers in between the kiddies nap time, but I'm in love. Love with school. In love with life.

Then there's my amazing husband without whom the previous paragraph and all that it entails wouldn't be close to possible. God did in fact create a perfect man, and guess what? He blessed me with him.

I've had a little free time to go out with friends and spend with my wonderful hubby. Will and I went on a date Saturday night. He took me to dinner, and then we shared some popcorn and M&M's at the local theatre. My prince charming. He does still give me butterflies. I get tickled at myself sometimes and then remember that I'd rather have that "silly" nervous feeling than to have lost it somewhere along the way.

My boys went to school. I cried. Called my mom and cried some more. I miss them often, but will see two of them once a week. That helps. My new bundle arrives soon. His name is Camden. He will be a mere six weeks old when he comes. I'm overjoyed! You should see my excitement. It could brighten any day, truly! My little ones who are still with me are noticing the void of the three. I'm asked throughout the day, "Why are they so late today?", "Will they be here tomorrow?" We are out in yard now. It's beautiful here. We are different though. It is a bittersweet thing, this life. But overall, we are well. We are blessed beyond measure. And you are missed. All of you. I hope I was too.

With love.

-The Latest: On Me-

Well I need to type an "Update" blog terribly don't I? I've been trying desperately to at least keep pictures of the kids and current events noted, but I'm a little behind on writing about my personal life changes.

Things have really started to smooth out since the wedding. Will and I are slowly but surely getting our house together. I'm planning for a Pampered Chef party one week from tomorrow and am hoping to have my last "living area" wall decorated.

I've been spending time with my sweet kiddies as I will be loosing three of my "big boys" to school this fall. We've been enjoying the park, McDonalds, and recently the kiddie water park. They all love it so much! -Yet another reason I'm lacking in the time area!-

Riley has been to the vet! The diagnosis is Mange. Yuck! I have no idea how he got it (though we think he's had it since birth), but I'm glad he'll be feeling much better soon! He's on medication for it and should be well within two weeks of his treatment.

Now for the biggest change in my life (right now) SCHOOL. I'm starting August 18th. :D I'm very excited. Husband and I went and bought my books and the remaining necessities last Thursday. I've been skimming through and trying to decipher what may be the hardest. Haha!

I'm also beginning piano lessons this Wednesday! Pray for me that my stress will be manageable and that I'll excel in all that God has in store for us! I can see so many things that God has for our lives.

Those are all of the highlighted areas that can be placed in the "change" category for now. Oh, but don't worry, around here, there's never a dull moment! Until the next time. This is me jumping into life!

Outdoor Fun

Hasn't this weather been just amazing? I sqirted the kiddies with the water hose the other day while they were playing... Haha. They were VERY surprised!
