Today is Monday, April 23 and our house is in the process of being framed. Notice how the workers are still there working at 7:30 at night. Unfortunately, rain is in the forecast for the next few days. Each new day brings more and more excitement for us.
Friday night our family was invited to watch the Texas Rangers play. Our seats were in the suites located by center field. The company that built our church has a suite there. It was a view that I may never have again. Fun! Fun! We watched from the patio and had free food and drinks all night.
Saturday rolled around and we were back at the ballpark. This time we had tickets right above 3rd base. We went with the McCown's from Nacogdoches. Tracy's parents were given tickets and they invited us to go with them. We had so much fun. The girls and Sheldon had a great time. Even though they haven't seen each other in some time, it was like they picked up where they left off. They act more like siblings than friends. We had such a fun time with them. It was a great game...the Rangers won!
Here are some of my favorite snapshots. Plus, a great video of the kids dancing!
The foundation has been poured for our house. We are so excited. The only sad part is how small the house looks. I can't wait until walls are up so it starts looking like a house. Estimated move in date is third week of June. They are already three weeks behind due to weather. However, Troy, our builder thinks they will be able to make that up.
You know that once you cut your hair all off, it becomes addicting. So, I went yesterday and got more cut off. It was so easy to fix this morning...blow dry, apply manipulator, and out the door. Thanks, Debbie!
Easter at Grace Fellowship was awesome. We had around 1900 people and 3 services. We are enjoying the new church facility. Rocky has a new title, Family Pastor. The girls and I are surviving school. We are counting down the days until summer...only 32 more school days. YIPPEE! Below you will see some pics from Easter. Anna Beth was so excited about not wearing a dress this year. She got to wear her "Chillin' with my Peeps" t-shirt. I especially loved my jeans and converse. Parker is just happy to wear no shoes and play in PowerZone (children's worship). Rocky was looking handsome as always.
We are enjoying life. Church is great. We are steadily making new friends at church and at school. Summer is just around the corner and so is our new house. We hope to be in it by the end of June. It should be ready around the 3rd week of June. Unfortunately, we will be in Chicago during that time so our closing date will probably be pushed back. But who can complain...we are talking CHICAGO and a mission trip at that. Fun! Fun! Fun!
We miss all our friends in Nac...come see us. We are enjoying our new friends in Bridgeport/Decatur/Paradise...come see us!
