It's almost summer!!

I can taste it... so close, yet so far. Ah, summer. Well this weekend we went to a friend's wedding.

Abigael got to dance with her daddy for the first time and got "oohed" and ahhed" over all evening. After that we we out to the lake house for Memorial Day and had a blast. We tested out the water with Abigael, but I think it scared her. She much preferred listening to them on the shore. I finally got to do something active- I told Taylor I feel like I have been hibernating for the last year. We got to jet ski, but I wasn't brave enough to tube yet; I'd rather watch my brother be ridiculously good and stupid at the same time with his shananigans in the water.

Please keep praying, we have a contract in on the house, and have a potential move out date of June 19th. If you are in Waco and feel like being amazing, I know that we will need a lot of help both packing, moving and watching baby. PS- If you want to help us move to SA, we are going to the lake after words to rest and you can join us!! :) I'm getting more and more excited, but also incredibly sad. Our house better be filled with visitors, that's all I have to say!

SO all of you that are still in school, either taking those dreadful finals, giving them, or way beyond the point of ever having to think of them again- ITS ALMOST SUMMER! wooohooo!!!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day all you mommies! We were so excited because we got to dedicate Abigael at church this mother's day. My momma came in for it, which I was thankful for. Amazingly, Abigael snuck out of her crib Saturday night and bought me an "I love you mommy" ballon and a corsage! I knew I had a smart child, but...
It was a gorgeous day, so we decided to take a few mommy's Day pics with Abigael and I. (She didn't like it the whole time..) But I must say, I think I'm in love for the second time! :)

Back to Work

I am back to work now, and Taylor is finishing up with his LAST finals at Truett Seminary!! Though it is difficult going back for May, we have an incredible babysitter list lined up. "Nonni", my mom (with an added visit from Poppi) is here to help this week. Taylor's momma ("Izzy" per request) and his grandma and aunt will be here next week. Abigael has begun to smile at us, rather than just at gas.

We are looking forward to June, since we will be moving into our new house then.(Picture on far left) Our new little home in the woods is next to my parents and we are thrilled at the blessing. We are still praying for a job and that the house would sell, so we would appreciate your prayers, but will keep everyone updated.

This Sunday we are dedicating Abigael (on Mother's Day- what better time) at Harris Creek, so we are excited. Thankfully the week has gone by pretty quickly- it actually helps having people at the house because it keeps me busy. I know only have 2 1/2 more weeks to go and that's it!! My middle school kids asked me if I missed them while I was home with Abigael. I actually laughed. But then told them of course I did. Of course I missed hearing you ask me for a pencil because so and so just broke yours. Of course i miss you yelling over me as a try to teach you how to be a normal human being even though there is no chance until you turn 30. Of course little precious middle schoolers- of course.
I am getting quite sad about leaving Waco and the amazingly precious people in our lives (our small group of girls @HCBC that I love so dearly). In fact, don't want to talk about it, so nevermind. And on that note... have a beautiful day!
