It's paused!

I like to use the word "pause". Not stop, because the intensity of it will start back up in August.  Pause is a good word.  Not that I like for dance to "pause" but, the break is enjoyable and needed.  I don't think most people realize the stress of the job.  So, I look forward to these 10-12 weeks when my mind can relax and I can spend most afternoons fixing dinner for my family and putting my son to sleep.  Recital was wonderful, as always.  I had one person describe it as "dance revival".  I never thought of it like that, but it's a perfect desription.  If you have never been to one of my recital's, you propably don't understand that.  Even more of an incentive for you to COME next year!!! Haha!  I feel like this year more than ever, my message was put out loud and clear.  We worship Jesus.  I am not going to sugarcoat that.  And, I am actually trying harder to bring that to the forefront. 

On to another subject.  I have been couponing for 1 month now.  I am so glad that I did!  I have saved about $200 in the month of May on stuff that we actually use! LOL!  I think everyone should coupon! :-)

Back to dance...who would have thought that something my mom enrolled me in 23 years ago would still bring me so much joy today?!  Seriously, I love it so much!  I am honored to work with each child. God has blessed me beyond measure with the best students!  Love them! 

I know there is so much more I wanted to write, but, I'll have to get back later!

an Ah Ha!! moment...

So, today I was scheduled to work in the nursery which I enjoy!  Usually Collin is the smallest one around and the most fragile!  For the past 14 months, I've held my sweet fragile baby boy in my arms and watched as other children ran around like crazy kids jumping, gooing and usually smacking on some snack.

However, today I had an Ah Ha! moment!  As I am getting situated in for the morning service, in walks a precious and fragile baby propably about 6 months old.  At one point, as I am holding her and playing, I look up to find my son, bouncing on a mat, screaming something that only another toddler could understand and smacking on gold fish all while he is drooling!!!!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!!

I couldn't help but giggle.  It was a moment!

Getting Started...

I've actually been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now.  I just feel at this point in my life I  have alot to say! LOL!  Our generation is so technology driven that keeping a "journal" these days is so difficult.  I've never been very good at that anyway.  I mean well, I just never can seem to get the pen to the paper.  With Collin growing so very quickly, I feel the need even more to just put some words down. it goes...a blog. 

Our sweet Collin is growing so quickly.  Right now, his words are dog, pronounced more like "dawg" (so country), ball, poochie, mama & dada.  He's just so handsome with that blonde hair and his little small frame.  Teeth are poking out and he's beginning to take on toddler features.  No!!!  It seems like just yesterday we were welcoming that little 5lb. 7oz. peanut into the world!  We are enjoying him so much! 

Now, onto another reason why I wanted to start a blog.  Again, I just have alot to say!  What is up with people these days?  It seems as though our population is just generally meaner than ever!  Do people seriously get some satisfaction out of being rude to people?  Don't get me wrong, I have been known to get a little hot headed with the sloooow people at fast food places.  But, for the most part, why are we not showing love people?  Christians included....why are we just so mean to other people?  I think it could possibly be the economy.  Or maybe people thinking they are just entitled to something in life?  News flash--we are NOT entitled to anything!  Just sayin... Bottom line...can we please be a little nicer people?  Especially if you are a Christian.

I'll wrap this up with recital!  It's next week!  It WILL be wonderful..., I am claiming it!  We will be bold and stand out from the rest!  We are there to bring glory to God!  Lots of little things to do before then!  Until I have something else to say, which propably will be soon..bye for now.
