All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Spring Break

Everytime I start thinking about it, I find more and more I should do during that week. Lauren has an ortho appt that Monday (after Easters), so I know for sure we can't leave until Tuesday. I thought I had something Tuesday now, but maybe I was dreaming it. Anyway, if all goes as planned, I should be going to Mom's & Dad's that Tuesday. I don't think Josh will be going because he is going to work and I am sure he will have a few days of Seminary since the other school districts in the area will have their Spring Break before us. Shawn will be working because he wants to get lots of hours in before May 1st. If he can get so many hours in before May 1st in overtime, then he gets another pay raise on top of the pay raise he already gets in June. By first part of October, he will be making just as much as he was making at St. Joes. Only problem is the gas. If gas prices go up more, we are going to be in trouble! At least Lauren won't have Seminary for another 2 years, and with more kids her age in Ashdown, chances are Seminary will be in Ashdown.

Then my sister calls today, the one who lives in KY, and wants to come down during their Spring Break, which she thinks is the week after ours. I don't know if I can let my kids out of school since they have already missed so much! Maybe I'll let them do 1/2 day 1 day or something. She said she spoke to my mom, and if she comes, then my mom is coming up, and if Mom is coming up, then I am sure more siblings will come since they will want to see Hilary too. Geez! I'm not up to a family reunion yet! LOL!!

Just so you know...we won't be coming again until Thanksgiving.

I still plan to go down in the summer, so maybe they'll all wait until then instead of coming to your house then. Besides, I believe Killeen's Spring Break is the same week as yours, so they'd all be in school anyway too when we come!
