No Emmalee!!

Today has been one of those days where I wish I had a snowbank to put Em in... or at least it would stop raining so she could run around in the back yard.

It started with her screaming to wake me up and it hasn't stopped!

First she got made at YouTube because the screen saver came on during her show so she kicked my laptop to the floor... Keith is letting me use his while he runs the 6th "fix-it program" so far it isn't fixing it.

Then she got mad she couldn't go outside so she kicked off her shoe and hit the lamp which created a chain reaction of things falling over but thank God my hutch didn't break.

So far the last victim of her day was my plant that lost a few branches to the ball she managed to kick to the ceiling and back down right on top of it.

The day is almost over and I go back to work tomorrow. I have never been so happy

Where have you been?

I had stopped blogging because life got so busy but I have found I really miss it. So let me give you the quick update...

Emmalee is still her sweet little self who really only likes to were three things: jammies, swimsuits and sundresses. Not much is new with her other then she has no fear. I am sure by the end of summer I will be blogging about her ER visit.

Ryan has picked up on reading and can't get enough. If you happen to see him ask him about the Very Hungry Caterpillar and he will recite the whole book for you. We recently had Ry's IEP (Individual Education Plan) meeting and everyone is torn if he should go to K next year or first grade. The more I think about it I think K.

Keith is still working from home and loving that he can have his daily run to the lake. He has also picked up many computer side jobs via craigslist and my new ministry adventures!

This month marked one year of no full-time employment for me but then in the same week that I got approved for another 6 months of unemployment I was hired as the full-time assistant manager at the Rosedale Gymboree and was hired as a part-time youth minister for St. Anne's Church in Sunfish Lake. I am also still the part time youth minister at my church, Spirit of Hope.

As you can see we are staying busy but we were able to get away for the weekend and head up to the cabin. This weekend Em caught her first fish and Ryan found BEAR POOP in our yard!

Happy Mother's Day to all. I am truly blessed with all God has given me as a Mother.
