I have been away from blogging for such a long time now and in the past few days have come on to try to catch up on some of your lives. Now, as I try to come up with a post for today, I feel so far behind and think there is way too much to say.
*Alan and I went away by ourselves for 11 days at the end of February/beginning of March. We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary and also a year of regular exercise, changing our diet and steady weight loss. Bethany and Cheney stayed with Davin (who was sick for much of the time:-( and we are so thankful for kids who love us and are happy for us to get away.
*Our home study came in the mail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are still sooo many decisions to be made and plans to work out, but God is in control of it all and we are so happy to have that magic report in our hands:-)
*You saw pictures from Cheney's proposal:-) I go back and forth between being so excited about the whole thing and then mourning my baby boy leaving our nest. So many emotions. He could not be cuter, though and we are really thrilled. There are just times when it hits me... like when he is talking to me about his wedding ring and suddenly I can't breathe anymore.
*I kidnapped Bethany and Rocky and had them with us here for a little over a week. I think I was very close to convincing Bethany to stay up here, but she was just accepted on a team to go on a missions trip to Africa in the summer!!!! so there is much to do with that and unfortunately for me, she will have to be in NJ for that.
*Ashleigh continues to rock her classes and is on her way to getting her personal trainer certification. I am so proud of all of the long hours and dedication she puts in. Of course, there is also that little job she has taking care of 2 two-year-olds all day long:-)
*Davin Boy had a talent show on Friday. Of course, he was amazing!!
*Some work is being done at our house in NJ to prepare for more people living there in the near future!!! That is exciting!!!
