Anyways, the last time I blogged, I was waiting for my sweet Jensen to be born. That was a long time ago. He was born October 4th. He is almost 6 months old and I feel now that I am starting to finally get into a good rhythm and now have time to do stuff like this again. It has been a true blessing adding a third child to our family. There is way too much to write about the last 6 months, so I will just talk about the past few weeks.
The second week in March was Liesel's spring break. We went to Myrtle Beach, SC for a nice family vacation. We stayed at a resort with an indoor water park. Jensen got in a bathing suit for the first time and looked so cute. I just love how babies just go with the flow. I guess since they really do not have a choice. LOL!
We took him down to the indoor water park and put him in a baby float and he just chilled the whole time as we went around the lazy river. His expression never changed. Like I said, one minute he is just hanging in a hotel room and then he is in a pool for the first time. The whole idea makes me laugh...I do not know why :)
Liesel and Caedmon loved all the slides. Since, the ocean was way too cold to swim in, the kids really took advantage of the indoor waterpark. They must have gone down the slides close to 50 times in 3 days.
It was a nice, much needed family vacation. I love making memories that we will remember forever!
On March 16th, Craig turned the big 40! I am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband. I have enjoyed picking on him this whole month since my birthday is not until next month and even then I will only be 34. So, for now he is 7 years older than me. HeHe!!!!
That morning, Liesel was chosen by her first grade teacher to receive the chapel award at Wake Christian. Each week, each teacher picks 1 or 2 students from their class that has shown Godly character. We received a call from the school that Monday to be at chapel that Wednesday to see Liesel receive the award. We were told to keep it a surprise from Liesel. That was difficult to do b/c I wanted her to look nice and usually I do not make a big deal about getting dressed in a skirt or dress. She said she saw us walk by her room on the way to chapel, so she knew she was getting the award. Hey, we tried! It touches my heart to watch her be rewarded for her actions. Words cannot describe how it feels to see your child succeed.
One funny thing to end with. I joined the softball team at our church. Softball was my sport in high school. I was pretty good and received all conference honors one year. We have now played 3 games and I have barely been able to walk after the last two. LOL!! I ran too hard to first base after a hit and strained a muscle in my thigh area. I have been walking around the house moaning like an old woman. Craig asked me if I stretched and I said no. I could not understand what was happening. I feel like I am in pretty good shape. I do Wii!! LOL! He turned to me and said "you are not 18 anymore!" "Yes I know Dear" I said...."thanks for reminding me. My body has informed me twice now!" LOL!!!
Well, off to enjoy another week of my life!
