Updates On The Kiddos

I feel like I have been neglecting my kids in my last few posts. Please don't misunderstand me though because LOTS has been happening here I have just been to sick to keep up with any of it.

Morgan had her piano debut in a little garden area with her fellow music students. Dan taped it so I could watch it when they got home. It's super fast and short so don't blink or you might miss it. She was really nervous but in true Morgan fashion she pushed through that and never missed a note. Before she left the house I told her,"Morgan have fun and even if you mess up smile cause your so cute nobody will even notice when you are smiling through the entire song."

Morgan also officially wrapped up her first year of home schooling and is now a third grader *gulp* I feel myself gasping for air at the very thought that I could possible have a child old enough to be in the third grade. Ugh! Seriously though, we LOVED home schooling and can't wait to bring Ryanne into the fold next year for Kindergarten. We are in the process of tearing down the classroom and revamping it over the summer with new colors and lots of fun stuff. (pictures to follow)

Last but not least Morgan had her swim athon and swam 105 laps earning more than $200 for her team. Whew! So proud of you baby. Sorry I missed it, I know you were grand.

Ryanne is wrapping up pre-k and loving it. She has grown so much and loves her teacher Mrs. Kidd. It's a good thing they go to our church and we are friends or I would be more of a mess than I already will be on the last day of school. It's just hard that we are officially leaving Redlands Christian. We have grown to love that place and what it stands for. Mr. Leenstras love for the kids and his passion to see the school and families there flourish in their daily walks has blessed our family.

Ryanne is also started back up on the starfish swim team again this year and doing great. No screaming and crying like last year. Just smiles and lots of launching off the side to her teachers. :) She is as wild as ever and very much a daddy's girl right now. As I have been on the mend she will stop what she is doing and pray over me to be healed; ahhh my sweet babe. Thank you Lord for a heart that desires to serve you even at the tender age of 4.

Well, that's about it for my updates. Did I mention I can't have corn or orange juice either? If my posts start to get a little testy please let me know as I am sure the detoxing mood swings will show. I mean no tomatoes or any night shade plant. I am Mexican people so you know that means NO Mexican food. I'm protesting as of this very minute. My blog may change from Life Is Good to Living without mexican food and the affects it has on your mood! Any other suggestions for my new blog title are welcome! :) He,heee!

So by this point I am wondering what the heck you can eat? Maybe you should title the blog that :) Thanks for the updates. I could not get the piano video to work. Also I want to hear more about this swimming. Where do they go? I want to put Gracie in something like that...thanks again for the updates!

Great job Morgan!!!

Ryanne, you are growing up...already for Kindergarten.

Christy, sooooo hard to eat three things and have to say no to three hundred. Keep it up! You can do it!

Love you

Rhonda said...

Yay Morgan!!!
I'm so glad school is almost out. I'm counting down the days.
And I'm still praying for you friend.

Eileen said...

Good job Morgan! Yeah, my grandbaby just graduated from pre-school, OHMYGOSH where does the time go?

The Keilers said...

You are the cutest! I'm so sorry this has been such an uphill battle. I will continue to pray for you, Dan and the girls. I must say it put tears in my eyes to imagine Ryanne stopping what she's doing and praying over you. Precious.

And no mexican food. Ouch. But you can do it! Yeah yeah I'll pray for that too ;)~

I've been doing much, much better. Thanks so much for your concern! I'm planning a post soon so I can share what I've been learning (and share pictures from our vacation to Hawaii!), but in case I don't get to it for a few more days, I wanted you to know that I am doing well. My heart is intact again! Thanks so much for your prayers.
