Happy Monday!!

Wow, time flies when you're havin' fun, It's been almost 2 weeks since my last post. For some reason laundry, dishes, toys on the floor, etc., or taking a little bit more of my time now.(not to mention a very precious newborn :-). We have had a great couple of weeks with Karson doing lots of "firsts".

On Thursday, Karson & I went to the Christian School P.T. O. meeting. I am the parent rep. for Kelsey's kindergarten class.

At the end of the meeting they brought out this basket full of gifts for us: diapers, wipes, Baby soap, picture frame, couple of blankets, socks, package of onesies, etc. I was VERY surprised. People are so kind!!

This was the same evening my good friend, Jane, brought us a delicious supper of cashew chicken, stir-fry veggies, and oreo icecream. A very, very kind thing to do!! :-)

On Saturday we made our first trip to the mall as a family of 6. (We live 65 miles from the nearest one, so this was quite the outing.) 30 minutes into the trip we realized we had forgotten the stroller--- OH NO!! Mark very graciously carried a 10 lb. little boy in his 10lb(??) car seat for 3 hours while we strolled the corridors. The playland was a welcome sight.

And being in Springfield, with fishing season right around the corner, we had to make a stop at Bass Pro (another 3 hours :-). Mark is now ready to hit the lake, as is the boat.

Another full week is in store before the girls start Spring Break next week. Kelsey has an Easter program at school. Then for some reason, it happened to fall in my lot that I am room mother for both of the girls Easter Parties. Kelsey's is on Thursday, Khara's is Friday.

Khara came home from school today saying that by the end of the day, there were only 11 well children out of 19 left in her class. Fevers, tonsillitis, pink eye,... Here's hoping and praying we have a healthy, happy, week and then a great Spring Break.
