No excuses, I know, but for crying out loud, blogging can take a long time with life happening around all of us. Well, so i guess we will start back in the end of April. No judgement, just be happy that there is some sort of activity on this site. the major event for April was Reba working her tail off for her Sensaria incentive trip to Maui. She put a lot of time in that month, but it did pay off. She earned the trip, not just for one, but for two people. Now I know that some of you are thinking that I pushed Reba to the brink of exhaustion with a trip for two to Hawaii looming, but it was all her. I, of course, told her that if she only made the trip for one, I was proud of her and that would be the end of it. As it turned out though, she pushed through and now we both get to enjoy the Hawaiian water at the Marriott in Maui for 6 days in October. Because she worked so hard that month, the kids and I gave her a surprise Luau party at the house where we decorated and made an attempt at Hawaiian cuisine. We had a great time, the kids dressed up in their bathing suits and flip flops (not thongs, but flip-flops), and we played Hawaiian music. We had a great time. The kids thought they were going on the trip too at first, but were re-directed soon after. Once May hit, the kids thought we would be leaving for Hawaii and wondered why it was taking so long. We explained the concept of delayed gratification. So, we will be boarding the plane October 4th for six days of relaxation--Reba really deserves this. Even though April was a busy month, the kids still were in swimming lessons twice a week, and Jacob and Jonah were playing baseball. Noah was the typical third child who played in the dirt at the games and ran around with a pack of other children. It has been really fun watching them learn the ins and outs of baseball. They have their playoff game this next Monday and Tuesday, June 18th and 19th. They have played for two months now so we are passed the point of telling them where 1st base is, not to hold and ball and run with it, and finally, when to stop doing cart wheels in the outfield. It has been a blast to watch, and they have had a lot of great support from their grandparents and aunts and uncles the past couple months. Until next time, over and out!
