Guilty Update

As I started this blog I thought it would make life easier with staying in touch and getting down some of those things that I never take the time to do since I am not a scrap booker. Well...I am not a blogger either. Although I love to read them and get updated with my far off family I really stink at being motivated to do this. I don't have time amidst all the laundry, dr appts, cleaning, laundry, dishes, laundry, playing with the kids, laundry, diaper changes, meal prep, church, laundry, grocery shopping, errands...did I mention LAUNDRY? So, if you follow my blog I apologize but I don't like taking time from my kids to do this so you'll have to be happy with my once in awhile posts. And I just realized how much time I spend cleaning rather than playing with my kids-that will have to be remedied.
Anyway, here is a quick update since my last post. I had my birthday (no biggie). We went to St. Louis for 6 days and saw the zoo, science center, Grant's Farm, Anheuser-Busch Brewery tour, the arch, Purina Farms, took a Riverboat tour, swam in the RV park pool and lived to tell about it all. I think I got it all. Then, we had VBS where I helped lead the music & was given the head MC job for it all-totally fun! Next came Sage's 8th birthday...HOLY SMOKES! He's so great. I think he will always love animals. He has such a tender heart and is really starting to understand foreshadowing of movies, books, etc. He and Grandma Glenna have read through all the Narnia books this winter/spring and he LOVES them and can tell you all about them if asked or not. He has enough energy for 6 kids and doesn't stop moving even when he's sleeping. Jeremy and I also celebrated our 11th anniversary by going on the Boone Scenic Vally Railroad Dinner Train. A 1950's style ride that takes 2 hours through very nice scenery and over a 150 foot tall bridge. (Aubrey would have hated that bridge!) That's it. Short and sweet.
