Hello NY!

We are here in the great state of New York. Ok, maybe there is a little sarcasm, but I really am trying to be focused on the positive. As I type this, I am sitting on my bed, surrounded by boxes on all sides. Tomorrow will entail unpacking some, organizing some, and resting some. Abbie started school on Wednesday.

She looked so cute and was excited! I, on the other hand, tossed and turned all night and cried all day. She says she enjoys school. I got a note from Friday that asked me about her nose picking habit. I about died! They want to retest her because her last F.I.E. was done for preschool. I am anxious, but I have been told by many how wonderful the programming is here. I started a book called "The Power of a Praying Wife," and I am trying to just hand her to God without my recommendations. This is so hard!

I wanted to include some pics from our trek from Memphis. Brooks ran out of paper and used his body to color. He also got a hold of the lollipop bag and figured if one tasted great, three at a time was better!

Abbie catching flies!

Once we hit the hotel, Abbie played "kitchen" with the ice bucket and coffee pot, while the boys caught their own flies!


  1. Congrats on being in your new home! Anxious to hear more!

    I LOVE the POWER of a Praying series- Praying Wife, Praying Parent, Praying Woman... they are awesome!

  2. I'm so happy for y'all! I am also so proud of Abbie for being so optimistic in what could be an awfully hard situation what a great girl she is growing up to become! And Brooks is growing up so fast... he's looking like a more and more like a little man in every pic you update! Great to hear from you the other day and I miss y'all so much! Tell Rick and the kids hi for me!
    Love Ya,
