I'm Back!!!

So, I'm back at work and I love it. I've decided I'm just not cut out for full-time stay-at-home mom work. I need adults and something in which to direct my energy that doesn't COST money! Being an engineer is GREAT and I'm glad I'm back.

I was telling some of my friends yesterday that on Monday morning I'm totally ready for coffee, Diet Coke, and adult conversation. By the end of Wednesday, I'm excited about apple juice, teddy grahams, and spit-up. A reunion with my children for the next four days is fun and then Monday comes around again. Part time is the perfect situation for me. God is good!

Pictures will come soon (but not today seeing as I let the camera batteries run down and I don't know where the charger is).

Stone is a few months over two and TONS of fun. He's talking in sentences I can understand and he soaks in all kinds of information...so, we're working on Bible memory. He's learned two verses (of course, they're somewhat paraphrased for a two-year old!) He knows the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 and Ephesians 4:32 - "Be kind to each other." He loves to recite them and it thrills me that the Word excites him! We'll see how much more I can cram into that little sponge before video games begin tempting him...

Stahley is 3.5 months and precious. I call her my "big smiley" because when she smiles, her whole face smiles. She still isn't sleeping all the way through the night, so Chet and I are very tired these days, but she's a joy. I just love my children to pieces.

Anyway, I'm here now. I'll try to post new pics soon.

Hey girl! I am happy for you as well. I just found the birth announcement! Somehow it got put under a pile of junk and I never saw it. The card - which I'm sure you designed - is beautiful and so is Stahley!
