I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

Still alive and kickin'

Yes, I'm still here.  Thank you for keeping up with me, even during my slight disappearance from blog land.  Right now Mark and I are stuck in the Detroit airport, waiting for a flight down to Marco Island, Florida.  We were suppose to be there about now but our initial flight this morning was delayed because of fog, resulting in a 5 hour wait in Detroit.  I really don't mind the down time, but would prefer it on the beach rather than the airport.  We're heading down there for a work trip.  Don't worry - there will be time to relax on the beach, but also some work.  We left the girls at my parents'.  I may be a blubbering mess by the end of our seven days away, missing my babies.

What else has been going the past couple months?  A lot of fun.  Here is a quick breakdown...

My parents, sisters, and families visited us the end of February.  We visited a water park, children's museum, and enjoyed a lot of cousin love.  We had a full house but were sad to see everyone leave.

The next weekend, I traveled to Memphis for a big homeschool convention.  It was a great mix of relaxation, fun with friends, and encouragement.  

After that, I had a shopping day with my sisters while my parents took all the kiddos to Madagascar Live.  I have to wear real clothes for this trip, not my everyday uniform of t shirts and black comfy pants.  Lucky for me, my sisters are more stylish and adept at at dressing me than I am.  

Since then, it has been swimming lessons, soccer, finishing up Classical Conversations, enjoying the warmer weather, and drinking in the cuteness of four beautiful girls.
