So it has been an interesting couple of weeks here at our house.
Our sweet Reese turned nine. She was thrilled to receive her very own (really nice) diffuser necklace, flat iron, and hair brush. The ninth birthday is apparently when our girls get their very own flat iron, according to Abby, anyway. She has been getting up early to do her hair. Mom is not ready for this stage! (And for the record… each girl has always had her own brush!)
My Dad celebrated his fourth anniversary since open-heart surgery. I can still barely talk about it, but simply remain thankful.
During Texas’ Spring Break, we went bowling with my nieces and spent a few days playing with them.
We spent our Spring Break (the next week) visiting our local Chickasaw Cultural Center and doing our regular schoolwork. Yes, I’m that mom, but we take regular breaks throughout the year, so working during Spring Break is no big deal. Abby has decided that being Chickasaw is cooler than being Choctaw, and is wondering if she can change her tribe. Um, no sweetheart, it doesn’t work that way! I am so grateful for the opportunities both the Chickasaws and Choctaws offer our family.
Shane took a hiking trip with some of his youth. It was interesting to say the least, as it rained most of the trip. They had a great time despite the rain and fog.
Last Monday, I took Abby Grace and Reese to a Young Living intro meeting in OKC. They are really interested in everything YL, including the business, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to let them see some of what we do. We had a blast, even after being involved in a fender bender in the parking lot. This makes me thankful for insurance and our insurance company, because mine is great.
On Saturday, Abby Grace and Reese competed in the District Piano Competition, and both received a “1-Superior,” which means they get to move to the State Competition in May. We are so proud of and excited for them!
Yesterday, our church surprised my pastor’s wife and me by honoring us on stage and presenting us with flowers. Apparently, March is “Pastor’s Wife Appreciation Month!” I did not know this, and it was a very nice gesture. I am so blessed to serve alongside this wonderful, amazing woman of God. If I can be half the woman she is, I’ll be happy!
