i miss my hubs

Sigh. Yep, I'm missin' him. because of other stuff going on, I haven't seen him in three days. It stinks. But we should get some family time tonight at David's ball game. A couple of updates:
David's team is tied for first, if they win tonight they move on. Go Indians!

I have signed up to teach Sunday School, 2nd and 3rd grade, and will start on Sunday morning. I'm way excited. David's been helping me decorate the room for the last two days.

Scott is working crazy hours, but these days so am I, lol.

Dano is doing great. He's excited to be promoting to Adventure Bay this Sunday.

Other than that it's loads of blah. We are all READY for our vacation in about a week. Four days away from all the mess as a family. I couldn't ask for anything more! We're taking the boys to Sea World in San Antonio. We're also going to the Zoo, The Alamo, and the River Walk. If we have time (and energy!) we're going to try for Natural Bridge Caverns as well. At Sea World we're going to be having lunch with Shamu, I can not wait! I'm bringing the laptop with me so be watching for pics of our fun time :). Not many cause I fully plan on spending every minute enjoying my family! Hopefully these few more weeks of blah will pass quickly!

Mothers Day

Wow, I didn't realize it's been 3 weeks since I've posted something. Crazy. A quick update before I tell you about my mothers day...

Homeschool is still going well. We've had a few hiccups but have overcome them with God's grace. Everything is going well and David still loves homeschool. Glory to God! Daniel is also doing well. He is still in pre-school but I see him getting more and more ready for the transition to homeschool. I am very excited to have them both home next term!

College is also going well. With God's provision I was able to do homeschool and college and they are both working out well. My Old Testament class was phenominal. I absolutely loved it and now have a MUCH deeper and better understanding of the Old Testament. I start my summer New Testament class tomorrow. I can barely wait. I've allready read ahead. (nerd alert!)

Scott is doing well. He is working crazy hours and many times I wonder if he's really home or just a figment of my imagination. Much prayer is being said over his work hours. I know God has a plan and a reason for him being at work so much so I'm trusting His plan. It is always so much better than mine!

We are headed for vacation in a few weeks, glory hallelujah! We are going to San Antonio the second week of June and will go to Sea World, the SA Zoo, The Alamo, and of course the Riverwalk. We are super excited for the time away as a family.

I am feeling a sense of eagerness about something. I'm a little too freaked out about it to say exactly what, but it is under intense prayer. Would you pray about it too? God will know exactly what you mean if you simply pray over "Jen's freak-out". :)

Onto Mothers Day - This has been the most amazing Mothers Day ever. Not because of the things I got (potted flowers, hanging baskets, chocolates, and sweet cards) but because of the time I got to spend with Scott and the boys. Everytime I turn around one of the boys is hugging me telling me they love me, it is sweetness at it's best. Scott gave me a sweet card and wrote some very nice things inside (I'm keeping them to myself :) ) We spent this morning together, Scott was able to come to church, and we just had fun as a family. I have never felt more appreaciated and loved, and I've never felt more blessed beyond anything I could ever deserve. God had blessed me with some amazing men in my life, but the three I got to spend this morning with take the cake. My boys are amazing. I can't believe I'm lucky enough to have them in my life. God must really love me.

Here are some pics of my pretties :)
We got a Topsy Turvy. You put the tomatoe plant in upside down and then put in the dirt and hang it. I wanted one to see if it really works and Scott found one at WalMart. Yay!
Pentas. I just love them. They are tiny little flowers but they are so pretty!
Vincas. I think they might be a love language. :)
We get impatiens every year but I've never seen one like this! There are four different colors: lilac, peach, pink, and white, and they look like they've been colored with crayons. Very pretty!
Hibiscus. I love them! Scott got two plants, one red and one yellow. They are blooming like crazy today!
