Well things have calmed down this week so far which is a good thing. We are still waiting to get a copy of the police report so that I can submit it to the other driver's insurance so they will start paying for everything. Right now, we are paying for the rental car ourselves and the car is basically sitting in the body shop. We will get reimbursed once his insurance company sees that he was at fault. The body shop said that everything is fixable and that our frame is fine which is a big relief to me. Also we did go get checked out on Monday and we are fine; very sore, but fine. My back is still bothering me when I sit for too long. I hated missing Kris's shower this weekend, but I didn't think my body was up to the drive and I am a little punchy about driving right now, so I didn't think I could handle four hours yet. Journey is also feeling better. When we went in for her check up, the vet said that they are pretty certain that she had a focal seizure. Hopefully it will be a one time thing and never happen again! She is not quite as active as she typically is, but I'm sure she will be soon.

Hailey had her first soccer practice on Saturday. She absolutely loves soccer, and she is very good at it too. The kids are so much fun to watch at that age too! This is her first year playing spring soccer, so we will get pretty busy in April because she will start her machine pitch softball too. She is such an incredible blessing to Danny & me. We went to church this morning, and in her church service they learned about how God gave us His best, so we should always give our best in everything we do. When we went back to get her after our service, she hands a card to me that says "To Mom, From Hailey." I asked if it was for her mommy or for us just to clarify, but she said it was for me. That warmed my heart of course! When I opened it, it held promises that she was making to help her give her best. These included: cleaning her room, emptying her trash, and making her bed. Of course I said "wahoo!" She really has enjoyed going to this church service, and so have Danny & me. I am glad that we're getting plugged in somewhere.

This month is shaping up to be busy for us, but I can't wait. My sister-in-law, Kim, and my neice Adi will get in from Hawaii on March 18th & be here for 5 weeks! Awesome! The weekend of the 20th, Dad and Deb may be coming into town which will be awesome. My father-in-law's ballroom dance studio does their spring showcase that weekend as well. Danny tapes everything for the studio, and we loved to go watch all of the students dance. Plus it's a chance for Ken to show off his family to everyone. Hailey and I love taking the time to get dressed up too! Then the last weekend of the month we are having Hailey's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. Oh boy! I think I might need a beer after that one! It will definitely be fun though. Have a great week!


  1. I'm glad things are calmer for at least a bit. Ellie & I sure missed you at Kris' shower, though. Hope you are feeling 100% soon!

    Oh, and BTW...I think you can get that beer AT Chuck's:) Last time we took the boys we noticed they served beer there!

  2. Glad you like your new church. Cute story about Hailey and the "mom" card. Miss you guys. Have to play it by ear on the 20th weekend. It will be up to how well Bonnie is doing. I am sure Deb will want to be here if not so well and I will want to be here as well to take care of the house while she is with her mom. Lets pray for good things. Love you.

  3. I missed you this weekend too. How sweet that Hailey made you that card, she is a doll.

    Drew is doing Chuck E Cheese for his bday too, should be fun!


Let me know why you love life today!
