Don't get me wrong, I love my life, but sometimes I am so bored! Everyday is exactly the same as the day before. Nothing ever changes. So, to keep myself entertained, I'm doing a monthly bucket list. That is do something off my bucket list once a month. I started this back in Jan, but kinda forgot about it. So I'm starting now. April, I'm seeing one of my all time favorite band who haven't been together since I was 10, Van Halen!

Dreaming a little

Although there is no way I would ever wanna go back to school (just paid off my last student loan), latley I have been thinking it would be fun to do something in fitness. I would love to be a personal trainer or a workout instructor. I have really turned over a leaf in exercise in the past 4 years, even completing 3 half marathons. I so wanna help other people reach fitness goals and learn about diet and nutriton and taking care of their temples of the Holy Spirit. Praying God can use me someway in this area, even if it isn't a career change. I keep thinking of things I will do when the kiddos are both in school full time.

Next weekend, my almost 8 year old son will be baptized in water! I am so excited. He has accepted Jesus in his heart. I worry sometimes as a parent if I am doing enough to make sure my kids know about Jesus. God reminds me all I do is plant the seed, he makes it grow! I am excited to watch Wesley grow into whatever God has planned for him!

Great day

So my cousin called me early this morning wanting to know about Jesus! He has been going through some bad stuff latley and was crying out to God! I spent 2 hours of the phone with him today talking about it all. I am so excited for him. We are so close, more like brother and sister than cousins. The kingdom of Heaven is rejoicing today! I love how even in the mist of heartache, he touched my cousins heart. God is so good!

I can't even remember the last time I blogged. Update on life. We are good. Jake is almost done with his 12th tax season and am I happy about that. He was promoted this past fall and still loves his job. The kids are good. Wesley is playing hockey and is loving it. He is a bit obsessed. He is super excited the St. Louis Blues are in the Stanley Cup playoffs. He is finishing up 2nd grade too! Can't believe that. The biggest news is he has commited his heart to Jesus and is gonna get water baptized on April 29th! Patrick is 4 and so fun. He is my fun and silly kid. He has one more year of preschool before heading off the Kindergarten. He is getting ready to start playing soccer for our church's league. Mom is good. Not much has changed with her. Taking care of her has its ups and downs and can get very tiring sometimes, but the Lord is my strength and he is seeing me through it all. As far as me, well I am ok too. I am running my third half marathon on Sunday and after will start training for my very first 26.2 full marathon, which will be in October of 2012! I know I can do it because "All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me!". Hopefully, I can keep up with the blogging a little better now. We will see.
