Is the sunshine of my life. Yes I know I have 2 children, and I do love them both, for their different personalities. I just have to take a minute to say how special this little girl is. She loves her family, so much. She tries extremely hard to make everyone happy. The last thing she wants is to get in trouble or have anyone think bad of her. She cares very much about what her sweet teacher thinks of her......
We had parent teacher conferences, and her teacher loves her too :) She told us how incredibly sweet and good she is, and showed us her wonderful grades that she has made. We are so proud of her. I just cannot express in words how much I love this child, and how much she means to me! She helps me to remember how important it is to just stop and take a breath and relax, and remember that she is always watching me and everything I do affects her sensitivity. She has started asking a lot of questions about God and heaven, and I am trying to do my best to answer them right. She loves church, loves her friends there and her teachers.
Here's both my sweeties on their first day of school:
Jos is in Mrs. Ashley's class at MDO, and she is learning sooooo much! Ashley is the most amazing teacher and i'm so glad that Joslyn is in her class. She needs someone who can accept a challenge! Jos is more spirited than Jaycee for sure, and she is funny, smart, and keeps me laughing every day. She likes to test her bounderies, and give a big grin and see if she can charm you. She is the cutest thing you will ever see, but a handful for sure! It's a challenge every day to keep her out of trouble. She definitely keeps me on my toes, but it's good for me, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I think she will go far in life with her outgoing personality and determination to get what she wants. She is also going to Mrs. Becky's house on Wednesday so that I can have a little break and time to get things done. She loves getting to play with Piper and Mrs. Becky is wonderful at teaching her new things! J
I'm teaching 2 yr olds at MDO again this year, and loving it!! I have the sweetest kiddos, and an awesome co-teacher who is amazing. I am also still leading the 2 yr old ministry at our church, though I've been struggling with it. Justin is working in Little Rock during the week, and only home on weekends, so things are a little hectic, and all these other responsibilities on top of taking care of the house and kids alone are wearing on me! I can't seem to get ahead in anything. And not to mention the whole reason Justin took the job was to improve things for us, and they (military) messed up his pay and he hasn't been paid in over a month, and there is nothing we can do about it, which is really frustrating! We are just praying that God will provide and take care of us and of course so far he has. I always beleive there is a reason for everything, maybe this is to make us more appreciative of what we do have, even though it often doesn't seem like much!
As for my health, it's so-so right now. I don't feel great, but i'm making it. I'd love nothing more than to feel great, but since that's not likely, feeling ok will have to do for now. I have too many things to take care of to stay down, though sometimes I want nothing more than just to stay in bed all day and rest! I do still have this weird infection in my hand that won't seem to clear up, that my dr's say could be affecting the way I feel. I will see my rheumatologist this week and hopefully find out something new.
God bless and have a good week everyone :)
