I wish all my days with the kids were this sweet!

What is going on in our world???

Well, this is the busiest time of the year! Baseball season! Practices are in full swing and recital preparations are under way. I love this time of year as it flies by and before we know it we will be back on the boat (thank you Daddy) basking in the sun! I love this time of year! I'm preparing the garden for planting (love that it is early March and I'm in the garden already) , and getting all the ideas in place for the next phase of backyard landscape. I love it!

I got a swivel chair for my study! My rear kept going numb from the dining chair that I was sitting in. I'm not sure hubs was thrilled I chose this paycheck to purchase in, but I assure you, my rump is thrilled and not feeling the least bit guilty.

My husband is slowly becoming a master griller! We love to BBQ and I'm so thankful we have moved past the everything jerky stage! YUM!!!

Oh and I'm going to the LPL conference in Memphis this year! I am sooooooooooo excited to meet up with all the Siestas and learn and laugh and eat and you name it we are going to have a blast. That isn't until October, and we have a lot of living to do before that takes place!

Last thing, 6 weeks exactly until Baylor "live"...that is 42 days!!

Happy Friday...

Have you ever noticed I never and I do mean never have any creative titles for my blog posts...

OK, so this has been a fabulous week indeed. I had my brother here Monday-Thursday and we had the best time.. one thing about Johnny, he never changes, his humor gets me to the gut every time! I have to say, in the stage of life that I am in (creating a non-prof ministry) he was right on time! God's time! What a blast to have the Lord open my ears and my understanding to hear some of the advice he had to give...
~People over estimate what they can do in a year, but under estimate what they can do in ten. Perhaps this is old news to you, but to me it was a huge challenge!
~As I head into this ministry I need a business plan, normally I would have rolled my eyes and smiled politely, but I am going into a world of chaos and I definitely need a clear plan.
~Set the bar high!! It will determine how far you can go! Normally this would be like nails on a chalk board to me, but in all actuality, after the past two years of ministry with people I can see the value of this! Not perfect people, intentional and consistent. Indeed gifted in the area's they are called to serve in...hmmm food for thought!
~ I think I even agreed to read some books on business***gasp*** if you know me at all you know that I am VERY selective of the things I read! Has to be God!

We were undoubtedly disappointed to see him go! But since he is going to be serving Texas in his job from time to time, we shall see him a lot more! My kids need their Uncle Johnny, so I am VERY VERY thrilled with this arrangement!

Today we are going to go to the zoo. The kids and I are going to head over after the field trip kids leave and enjoy a few hours looking at animals and playing around. Since we are going to have a windy 80 degree day, I think it will be lovely! I'm charging the camera battery as we speak.

I'll check in with you later and post about the zoo and other stuff that is going on in our world! To anyone who is out there reading...BECAUSE I NEVER HEAR FROM ANY OF YOU!!!! UGH!!!

Love ya!

The best part of waking up...



It is 8AM in our home, the dogs are fighting and Jake and I are hanging out...in a few minutes he will help me clean the kitchen and we will head off to his school! The two younger kiddo's are still sleeping. I know this post is riveting, but Jake thought is would be interesting to see how this blogging thing works!

Jake does say "HI" perhaps he will come up with something far more insightful for the next time we post together! Blessings from the the Morse Family!!
