Today was Micayla's K-4 Love Bug program.. The songs were so sweet and they all did a great job! The boys are in yellow because they are fire flies.. it was just too cute Oh yeah, Micayla's line was "My ladybug's name is Lucy" :) Love it!
We are leaving for Destin, and Orlando in 8 days !!! We are sooo excited! It is definately a much needed and much wanted vacation by us all. No, school is not out yet, but this is something we have done for several years now, is take the kids out of school for a week and come back and finish up the year... It helps beat the crowds and the major heat at the same time. We are looking forward to spending time with just us, the sun , the beach, Universal, rollercoasters , games, swimming pools and lots of family fun!
It all started in March.. Micayla had pneumonia, then early April she had an upper respiratory infection and asthma issues, then she had a viral infection and still asthma junk going on.. and sky high fever.. then when I think she's getting better we wake up today with green drainage and an earache.. yes , all you mom's out there know what it means when your drainage is green.. we'll be at the doc today at 2.. I just thought we were getting better.. And then there's Deric, he has the flu and bronchitis.. Yes, he had the flu shot, but he has the "B" strain flu not "A" that he was given the shot for.. go figure! Thank the lord that his flu was caught in time to give him flu meds that would shorten the life of the junk.. I really think we have covered most every illness out there so does this mean that we'll be healthy the rest of the year ? :) I'm sure praying everyone is..
Easter was extra special this year because Deric decided to be baptized after being saved at a Shiloh High School game. It was an away game and he and several of his friends were discussing being saved and everything that has to do with it and he decided to right then and there. It was in Prarie Grove (away game) by the way. We just praise God that at age 16 he has made such a huge decision to keep living for our Lord.
Below are my kiddos before church Easter morning..
And last but certainly not leaste, here is my studly husband/Soldier who in the end, after beating Collier (Jesus) sooo many/too many times ended up bowing down to him (shew).... Hope everyone had a Great Easter, I know we did!
Immediately after the storm passed tonight I let our little toy poodle out back to do her thing and the sunset was unreal! It almost looked like fire in the sky or something because it was so dark out yet you could see the light. It was very pretty. The picture does not even do it justice at all.. but you'll kind of see what I mean..
Above is the finsihed product.. I am having some major technical difficulties here.. :)
Micayla and Aca could not wait to color eggs again this year. It is by far one of their favorite things to do, and they absolutely love everything about Easter. Micayla has been saying Easter is her favorite holiday for a long time now. I think she is really understanding the meaning of it all. Still a little hard for a 5 year old to grasp I'm sure, but she's puting it all together.
So anyway, they wanted to do tye dye this time around and they had a lot of fun with it. Cute stuff, but it does not come off the skin very easy at all.
Above, Aca is holding his favorite
Here Micayla has started rolling her's around in a baggy to get the color on the egg
