I just realized today that I haven't posted for a week and a half...and I have missed it!! I love writing and documenting special things that are happening our family and it is hard for me to be away from that but I just haven't found time lately.
Dominic and I have been spending almost every waking hour working towards an opportunity that will be really exciting for our whole family. We feel that God has lead us to this place and I can't wait to be able to share it with you here....but there are just a few details that we are waiting on coming together and I want to be able to do a big "reveal" as soon as those are complete. I can say that I am so very proud of my husband and all he has done to prepare our family for this. It is exciting and scary and fun all wrapped into one!!
This has been a year of transitions and change and growing and we could not have gone through it with any grace if it weren't for all of those family members and close friends that supported us, encouraged us, prayed for us....thank you is not adequate enough ...but please know that we are so very grateful for each and every one of you and pray God's blessings for you all.
My grandparents, aunt Karin and aunt Naomi and my mom all came to visit on Saturday!! Did I take any pictures? Ashamedly, No... Boo on me!! But it was so nice to have all of them make the drive and spend the afternoon with us. We have wonderful family on both "sides"...we are truly blessed!
I did manage to take a couple of pictures of Karlena in another pretty dress on Sunday...I got 3 dresses from the Children's Place late last summer online and because they were out of season each one was $3!! And the sizes I ordered are a little big so I hope they last through the summer!
Of course I didn't take her picture until after her nap and she had some serious bedhead going on!
Elijah wanted in on the fun a little too :) He was showing off his shoes here!
Tonight at Awana it was "Favorite Bible Hero" night. When I asked Gabriel who his favorite Bible person was he said "Jesus of course!" We had this costume that Dominic's mom made for Isaac years ago. She is very talented with a sewing machine and made this out of bed sheets!
Gabriel wasn't too sure about the "beard" that I put on him...but it helped finish off the costume I think! The wig is a men's adult size so it was huge on him....Dominic wore it one year in a Passion Play at our old church. We may need to give it a trim next year though! :)
My job is still going great...I work with a wonderful group of people and just feel like this is where I was meant to be. I am learning lots of new things every day and the days just fly by. I thank God every morning for this blessing too!
Isaac is doing well in school - he is such a good kid and we are so proud of him. He wishes he could get a job for the summer....we might just try out at Menards...but in MN they typically won't hire you until you are 16.
I guess that is about all I have for now...pretty random - but hopefully I will find some time in the near future so that I can sit down and write a little more! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!!
