There have been several more along the way, but those highlight some of the big ones. You would think...at some point...I would catch on. However, as I've been told by my parents multiple times, I tend to learn things "the hard way." One take away that I have come out with is that there is a God who loves me beyond what I deserve, reminds me constantly that HE is in control, and has such a better plan for my life than I could have ever planned for myself. For that, I am thankful.
Here is a picture of our Breckynn Grace at 20 weeks. We chose the middle name Grace because it is by the Grace of God that we have her. This is a picture of her face looking forward and her little hand saying, "Hi!" Can't wait to kiss those precious little fingers in just four months!
This fall, as if having a surprise 3rd child wasn't enough, Baylor will be starting Kindergarten, Colby will be finishing up his masters and doing his Principal's Internship (Hallelujah!), and I decided to do this...
That's right. I'm getting BACK into teaching! I'm actually super super excited about it. I will be a part time Title teacher working with grades K-2nd. 2.5 days at school, 4.5 days at home with my babies! Not a bad deal!
PS...the minivan is AWESOME!!! :)
