Happy Birthday 'Nae

Today we celebrate Easter, Christ is risen! And in our house, we are also celebrating the birth of Janae. Eleven years ago today she was born.

She's grown up just a bit, don't you think? She's a huge blessing, and I love her with all my heart!

A Quarterly Update.....

Although I have good intentions when I actually do blog something, and think I will continue to regularly blog, it just doesn't happen anymore. I actually had a few minutes, and thought I'd put something on here. Wonder if anybody ever checks it anymore......... I love reading everyone else's blogs, but I do a really bad job of keeping mine up to date. So, since it was during Christmas break when I last posted, I thought maybe my goal could be a quarterly posting instead of weekly or daily. Only problem with that, I probably will only mange to do it a couple times of year! Ha. Over spring break we decided it was time for contacts for Janae. Bless her heart, I only took her to the eye doctor to get the contacts, and it ended up her prescription had really changed. And no, it hadn't been 6 years since she had been seen last. It was exactly a year ago, and my plan was to keep her same glasses and only have to buy contacts. Uh, wrong. New glasses too! She's loving the contacts, and is able to pop them in and out easily after just a couple of weeks. The only think I don't like about them is, I think she looks so much older. She will be 11 on Sunday. This year her birthday falls on Easter. She's pretty excited about that. Brings back memories. The last time Easter fell this late in the year was the year she was born. She was born the day after Easter. And now to brag a bit. She had a picture in the Lubbock Arts Festival. She has the greatest art teacher in the world this year. That lady enters these kids in everything she can find. These pictures were picked by judges from the Art Festival. About 15 kids from her school had pictures in it, out of 525 kids in the school. Janae does a great job, and she has a teacher who wants the kids rewarded for their hard work. Janae also had a picture entered into the Reflections program, which schools from all over the country enter, that is judged as well by people who don't know the kids, and she made it all the way to state with that picture!! We are going to a luncheon in a couple of weeks and she and the other 6 kids from Oak Ridge (and all the other Frenship schools) will be honored by the superintendent. You go girl!

Hunter is playing machine pitch baseball this spring. It's been alot of fun, he's doing a great job and thoroughly enjoying himself. He hit his very first home run ever in the first game! My memory card on the camera didn't work so I didn't get a picture of it, but he was so thrilled. Mama was so excited I got teary eyed. (I'm way too emotional!)
Here he is watching the ball roll right past him! See how good he's doing?? ha, ha
I think he's just as cute as he can be.

Well, I have 2 more full weeks of class this semester, than a week of finals. About 3 weeks off, then summer school. It's looking like I will be able to finish all my classes by December, then I have to do a work study. I'm hoping to get a paid position somewhere and be able to do the work study in the fall semester, then I GRADUATE!! Whoo-hoo!!! If I can do that, I'll have done it in 2 years. When I started I thought it would take me at least 3! I'm getting excited, and in just the last couple of weeks have starting being confident I will be able to actually get a job and know what I'm doing! So if anyone knows an attorney who pays big bucks and is hiring: let me know!!

Taking Legal Writing this semester has been quite trying, in the beginning of the semester I was making 70's on everything I was turning in, and getting very irritated, (those of you who know my anal and perfectionist tendencies will not be shocked at hearing this), but I've actually "gotten it" and am doing well in all my 5 classes. Whew! It's been quite a semester, can't believe it's almost over!

I should have actually posted in March to be quarterly, I just realized this, so I guess I'll be back in June to stay on a quarterly schedule! tee, hee
