On My Mind...

This photo is representative of life.  It's not perfect, but we're happy. 

I'm smiling, but the boys refuse to pose.  This is nothing new.

Just threw it on this blog post because I never put in on FB or IG.

Here's a list of random things that have been on my mind.

Mark and I teach subjects that are tested in the state of Texas.  It's a lot of stress.  Both of our tests are now over and there's a huge feeling of relief. 

We had a busy weekend...sort of.

Nothing blog worthy this weekend, but last weekend was packed with fun.  I didn't have a chance to blog last week, so I'm hoping to catch up this week.

We went to my cousin's crawfish boil in east Texas.  The boys and I tried crawfish for the first time.  Their reactions were hilarious.  The way they prepared the crawfish made them super spicy.  We warned the boys, but they wanted to try them anyway.  They were running for water as soon as they tasted the crawfish.  More pictures to come this week from that.

We celebrated my in-law's 50th anniversary last Sunday.  They had over 100 friends and family attend the Golden Anniversary party we held in their honor.  Lots of great pics from that special event.

Today we don't have school because we didn't use any of the bad weather days that are built in to the school calendar.  We had a day off earlier this month and another off today.  Woo hoo for 3-day weekends!

Will has been playing tee-ball and loving it.  He and Ben play all the time in the backyard.  We have a game tonight.  Go Will!

I have a list a mile long of things I need to take care of!

Here goes:
Order VBS {vacation Bible school} material
Plan Ben's 4th birthday party {He's going to be 4!!! WOW!}
Schedule Ben's 4-year photos with Lauren
Finalize plans for our vacation to Virginia and Indiana
Reserve our hotel for our anniversary getaway
Buy tickets for the concert we're going to attend that weekend
Plan something special for Mark's 40th birthday this summer
Continue to discuss plans with the architect for the new house

All fun things we're looking forward to.  It's just a lot on my mind.

Here's a good verse for when I feel overwhelmed or anxious.
Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.


  1. That's my favorite verse!

    And I hear ya, I have a long list of things I need to get done too!

  2. I love that verse, and I've been repeating it a lot this I just feel very anxious, in general. You look so pretty in that picture, and I love what you said about it and about life. So true!


Comments make my day! I'm so happy to hear from you!
