So here goes:
April- Easter was great! We spent the day at Nana and Pop's and got some wonderful pictures of the kiddos Easter Egg hunting. We also went to Nana and Pop's church and enjoyed a really good time visiting with all the members there. We had a delicious lunch and hunted over a couple of hundred eggs. Grace is still young enough to believe the "Easter Bunny" came to visit, so when we got home from Nana and Pop's, the "Easter Bunny" had left some Easter basket full of goodies on our front porch. It was so much fun watching her reaction! Ryan could have cared less, of course!
May-Well, we missed the Baby Reunion at Baylor Center for Reproductive Health this year. We had planned to go, but Rick had a coaching clinic that interfered, so we had to skip this year. Hopefully we will be able to attend next May. Mother's Day was uneventful. I got to sleep in and then we headed off to church. Grace made an adorable flower vase for my kitchen window. I absolutely love it. Perfect for little flowers she picks now and then. We attempted to eat out at the Jalopeno Tree, but Ryan was so tired we had to get everything to go and eat it at home. Still, a very nice day spent lovin' my kiddos. We also had Grace's Graduation from Nana's Playhouse and Learning Center at the end of May. When asked who her hero was, she proudly replied, "Jesus". We are so proud of her.
June-Wow! What an unexpected month June was! Rick got a call from Mt. Vernon ISD for an interview as Head Basketball Coach. He went to the interview and was offered the job that night. He accepted the offer and that pretty much threw us into panic mode! I also turned in my letter of resignation to Beckville, reluctantly, and began praying that God would provide me with a job. We also put our whole faith in God by making an offer on a beautiful house in Mt.Vernon. We haven't purchased a home in a while, so this is very exciting for us. We also went on a very short family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Tx.
It was just wonderful and we plan on going back very soon.
July-so that brings us to now.... I had an interview for a 5th grade Science teacher position in Mt. Pleasant last week and got the call on Tuesday that they wanted to hire me. Yay!! Thank you Jesus!! We were really getting nervous since Tuesday was also our last day to back out of the house contract. But everything is moving forward now! We should close on our house on July 24th and moving around the 27th. Sooo exciting! We also just signed Grace and Ryan up for the First Baptist Church's preschool for the fall. We had a grand tour of the school on Wednesday and Grace is ready to go!
