well we have had a busy few weeks...field trips, spring break and finally sunny skies to get the addition framed! after SEVERAL cold and gloomy, gray days the sun was definitely a welcome sight :) i have always loved spring ....the warm sun on your face, the barren trees sprouting green leaves, the flowers that have been hidden in the ground all winter peeking out. just so many miracles that HE is giving us this time of year.
so for spring break we just stayed home and did a few special things. like a trip to the movies with nani to see 'hop' ... spending one night with nana... and one day i took the girls to our discovery center museum. we have had a membership there forever because my girls love going. it is a wonderful, fun place to help inspire little minds :)
:: after lots of fun inside the big girls wanted to explore the 'wetlands' and hit the outdoor playground ;)
and finally....we have walls! we have been waiting for this for years, literally! the day the floor was finished the big girls were just running around it in circles...and maggie did not know what all the excitement was about but she knew she should join in on the celebration! she was crawling so fast chasing her sisters stopping every so often to just scream and do 'happy hands'....it was sooo cute!
so i will try and not stay away so long again....i have just been feeling a little overwhelmed with all that is going on. but as i sit here and look at all of the pictures and relive the past couple of weeks i am reminded of one of the reasons i love doing this. i started miss maggie rae's blog almost one year ago. to share with others how wonderful a life with a child with down syndrome can be. to provide hope to any new moms out there. to say that it is truly a blessing. and in the process of each post i am also reminding myself of how blessed i am. there are days when i am feeling tired or frustrated with the addition or overwhelmed by the never-ending piles of laundry....but as i look at these pictures of my beautiful baby girls, i am reminded of just how lucky i am. and it reminds me to thank HIM everyday for my wonderful little family :)
one last happy for your weekend.... this is miss rayley beth's drawing she just did of her and her 'boyfriend', eli. she said he told her friend that he loves her. and i said of course he does , what's not to love ;)
happy weekend :)
