Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a happy Mother's Day! I don't think mine could have been any better. I got exactly what I asked for: REST!!! I got to sleep in, Gary cleaned the house, and then all five us spent the afternoon together...riding 4-wheelers.

After the wild week I had last week, I deserved it. On top of all the normal craziness, I attended a birth and a funeral, took food to friends who had a baby, and dealt with a sick child...all while Gary was out of town.

Today I had my interview at Jackson State. For those of you who did not know...I was accepted to graduate school with "Advanced Standing," which means that I would only have to go for a year! YIPPEE (or so I thought)! I got there today to realize they made a mistake. I cannot be an Advanced Standing student because my BA is not in Social Work and I graduated more than 5 years ago. I am still admitted to school, I just have to go 2 or 3 years instead of 1.

I still have not decided what I am going to do. As much as I would love to pursue my degree, it may not be God's will. Gary and I have so many things going on right now and tons of decisions to make. I will keep you all updated.

Both the boys had their first baseball games Saturday. I did not get to watch Jackson because they played simultaneously, but Gary says he did well. Chance had a good game too. You would think this would have been the highlight of their weekend, but it wasn't. Yesterday we all played in the woods. All 3 kids waded in a creek and chased Jeffrey's lab, Deuce, around in the sand. It has been a long time since I have seen all three kids have that much fun together. I told Gary that it truly attested to who our kids are!

I would love to share pictures, but I still have not found my camera, so everyone keep your eyes open. I guess that is about it for now. The kids and I are headed to watch Gary play softball, by way of Chik-Fil-A. Talk to you all soon.

Sounds like an awesome day! Of course you deserve it.... I love you and have missed pictures and stories this past week, I guess I'll just have to use my imagination on the picture end. :)

I can't believe how big your kids are getting! I miss you and hope that next time you're in town that we can get together!!!! You have such a cute little family Les! Hope things are well - keep in touch.
