He may be a goof, but we are proud of him! In the local paper...

But no matter where he goes, I know he will be a good missionary. He is a good kid, and I am honored that Heavenly Father trusted me to raise him. We will let you know about the mission call as soon as we get it! Stay tuned...

Oh what a week! Of course it had to start raining Monday afternoon, and by Saturday it's suppose to be in the upper 40's as the high! Kids have been enjoying the few times they have been outside helping Shawn plant some new blackberry plants, and enjoying the rest of the time playing on the old computer upstairs (Shawn loaded tons of games on it), and sometimes with the new computer downstairs, Gameboys & N64 (yes, we still have the new classics... real classic would be Atari!) and watching TV. Not much more to do when we couldn't go anywhere this time for Spring Break. It has been a nice break getting to sleep in until 7am... you would think the kids would sleep in longer, but NOOOOOO!
This past Saturday was my very 1st Relief Society Enrichment that I was in charge of. I think it went well, and I think the sisters that came (abt 30!) had a great time. Lunch was good, and so were all the cakes. My mother-in-law said that sisters told her that it was great.
On Friday night, Brett & Cindy and their 6 kids decided to make a short sweet stop at our house to stay 2 nights. They had been on their Spring Break, and were returning from their vacation. They went to Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois & Indiana. They said they had a great time, and we were glad they had stopped here. Kids were dying to see them, so it made their beginning of Spring Break great! They left early Sunday morning as their babies were not sleeping or eating good. We were sad to see them leave so soon,
Sunday morning I woke up with a very sore back. It started to hurt Friday morning, and with moving a piano at the church on Friday night, didn't help it I am sure. I decided to stay home from church and veg out on the couch while Josh took Lauren, Kayley & Jacob to church. The younger ones stayed home and played while I slept some.
Last night, Shawn, Jacob and I drove to Shreveport to stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Why? Jacob had to have surgery this morning at Willis Knighton South. I wrote about it a few weeks ago. Surgery went great, and a little muscle had been wrapped around the testicle causing it not to come down. We were all happy about that. He is going to be sore today and tomorrow, but will be able to go to school Monday. No PE though for 4 weeks. I am typing this on Josh's laptop at the hospital as Shawn is getting Jacob ready to go because there is wireless here (reason why I have a new layout!).
Shawn returns to work tomorrow for 3 days, and on Monday he and I head back to Shreveport morning as Shawn will have surgery. He will be off work for 2 weeks (oh, no... shoot me now!), but he does have plans to finish a lot of stuff (maybe don't shoot me now!). He also got a new calling at church... Cub Scout Leader on Wednesday nights. He is happy about it, and looks forward to starting next Wednesday night.

I thought I would put an update about my weight loss adventure...
It's been 63 days since I have had a diet Dr Pepper, and I have lost 25 lbs as of this morning.
At the end of December I bought a pair of size 16 jeans. About a month later, I bought a size 14, and last night I bought me a size 12!!
