How about an update on the goings on around here? We are at a pretty sweet stage in life. With two son's out of the nest and three kids who are pretty easy left at home it feels nice. I miss the older ones but going from 5 to 3 in a relatively short period of time makes a huge difference. We are still busy but it's pretty manageable. Having girls who usually like to help me makes it even sweeter.
So here's what my crew are all up to these days:
Big Boy is serving his mission in Brazil and has only until July 28th left! We just heard the official date yesterday from him. It's earlier than I had thought so now I'm happily processing this information. He is loving his time there despite the hard times. He has grown so much as a person it's almost unbelievable! His influence on his brother Middle Boy has been incredible. The two of them have had a relationship that has been somewhat competitive in the past, but now it has been so sweet to see him reach out and encourage his brother for good. What a great person!

T and I are good. We both just got over horrible head colds. We are both looking forward to Spring when we celebrate our 23rd anniversary! This year it's a chocolate walking tour in Georgetown and an over night stay in the city. Sounds good eh? It will be ; ) I planned it.
Overall I am very happy with my life. The plantar fasciitis hasn't got me completely down. I've discovered I love yoga. I may go back to work if I can screw up the courage this year. Having college-aged kids going on missions, and kids at home with music lessons and braces is pricey! However I seem to keep pretty busy with what I currently have going on. I love being there to volunteer and be home when kids get home. I spend a lot of time wondering about our future when T leaves his current job in five years. Where will we be next? I search real-estate online to help me determine the answer. The best wrap around porch home wins!
That's all for now!
