I feel like it has been SO long since I've done a life update post. But then, when I steal a few minutes to sit down, I find it difficult to put thought to paper, at least outside of my personal journal. There are lots of big, huge things going on in our lives, but much of it is not talk-able material yet. For instance...
I think we are buying a house, yet we are still getting more aggravation than commitment from the bank who has told us they will finance it. January 30 was the contract signing, yet we're still not sure if we'll be closing next week or if the bank will say no.
We have a foster child who may very well be with us for a long, looong time. Or, maybe he'll go back to live with his bio family next week.
Shaun and I have some exciting ministry opportunities overseas in the fall...trying to decide on some very preliminary logistics for that.
The calendar says Spring arrived, but, darn-it-all, its freezing and has flurried most of the day today....and we've still got inches of snow covering the ground.
To make everything a little more interesting, we're in the middle of tax season and Easter production time. This means Shaun and I do what I picture speed dating to be....talking about really important things in a short amount of time. Like, short. I have to admit, the ridiculousness of it has gotten to be somewhat comical. Its also made me thankful for the solid foundation our marriage has...its been tested! :)
So, since I can't talk about what's really going on in our lives, I thought I'd share some photos from the other day.
When I saw the first one, I thought, wow...Amanda's so pretty and her bangs are really looking good.
(My two are the ones with barefeet. You know those moms who always seem to have it all together and their children are always prepared? Yeah...I'm not one of them. :)
Opening night is tomorrow and we'll do FIVE shows. We'd love to have you join us if you're able!
