Amongst Other Things…

May 8, 2008

I had forgotten how busy April and May are…and that the calendar pauses for no one. But how quickly I was reminded! 🙂 Our recent weeks have been filled with many exciting celebrations: Daniel’s birthday, Hana Kate’s dedication, and the graduation of 3 brothers, 1 brother-in-law, and 1 sister!  It was enjoy to have my family in, as well. Somewhere in the midst of it all, we’ve also enjoyed a fellowship for our neighborhood class, bridal showers, and Bible Club closing, and other extra church activities, just to mention a few things.

We were glad to celebrate Joshua’s homeschool graduation on Tuesday night. Congrats to Joshua and the other MCBC grads!

Amongst other things, Hana Kate is definitely growing and developing! She loves to see herself in the mirror, likes to roll off of our bed into Daddy’s arms, and she even has a little spot where we can feel her tooth coming in. (It is her top front tooth, so it might be playing tricks on us.) Roaming around her crib is another hobby she’s picked up–it’s funny to find her in the opposite end of the crib from where she started!  When she turned 12 weeks, we put moved up her bedtime, giving her 10-12  hours at night and during the same week it warmed up enough for her to move into her own room at nights.  We really missed seeing her as much at night–it kind of felt like we were sending her off to college! 🙂

We have enjoyed a few strawberries from one of the plants, and our lettuce seems to be thriving–we enjoyed our first salad last night! Lordwilling, we’ll be able to build a fence when we return and can start our garden over again (without the dog practicing digging in it)!  (Okay, so probably only my mom wanted to know about our garden.)

We’re gearing up for our long-anticipated Threlfall/Collier family vacation, so I’m sorry if my posts have been sporadic this week and next. But hopefully we’ll be back soon! 🙂  Thanks for checking in, and stay tuned!.

    I’m glad to hear your garden updates. I always make grand plans, but don’y accomplish most of it. And I’m not very good at remembering to water thing. :^( But the ground is tilled and the sunflowers, corn, tomatoes, and tepee with pole beans will be going in this weekend for better or for worse.

    My maiden name was Collier….maybe we are related somehow 🙂
