I know I'm really behind

I should have some free time for myself since Alexia finished cross country and Ariel has finished soccer. It would seem that the taxi driver would get to relax a little, but that hasn't happened. Yet! I'm still hopeful!

This semester has been extremely time consuming with too many group projects, too much studying, and way too much homework! I'm taking a long weekend to myself starting tomorrow. I leave right after picking up the kids from school for my Walk to Emmaus. Satan's panties are in a wad. He has been working overtime on me these last couple of weeks. Please pray for me to go on this walk with an open heart and an open mind. Please pray for me to get the exact message that God wants me to hear over the course of this weekend. Pray for my family to survive without me and that Logan will be able to sleep without his Mommy. He is such a cuddler!

Here is a picture of Ariel's soccer team after their last game they lost a couple of weeks ago. It was so sad. They lost to a kick off and most all the girls started crying because they wanted to continue playing. It was so sweet and brought tears to my eyes. Who would have known they would start crying? This was Ariel's first year to play and she really enjoyed herself. She even scored a couple of goals and always hustled.

Logan chasing after his happy sister. Look at that beautiful smile!
My camera is acting up so I didn't get pictures of the finished products or pictures in costumes. Here a couple of pictures of Logan and Ariel painting their pumpkins for Halloween. If we take Logan's shirt off Ariel thinks she needs hers off too! This is a bunny in the making.

Baby Smurf in the making. Alexia and Ariel don't even know who the Smurf's are! Isn't that sad? What are we going to do about this generation!!

Crooked Tigger! Sorry, but I want you to see that I at least had costumes for the kids and I don't have time to delete this picture and redo it. If there is an easier way to fix, please let me know!

Have a blessed weekend and remember me in your prayers!
God Bless You!
I forgot to mention that I gave Alexia her first driving lesson the other day--in my car! I'm a brave woman! But it was actually hilarious. I thought I was going to wet my pants! She was so excited when I asked her if she wanted to drive. She got in the car and was ready to take off. I told her she had to put her seat belt on first. Then she was ready to put it into drive. I told she had to first press the brake and then she could put it into gear. Well, she accidentally floored the gas. It really scared her and she started freaking out when she realized that if it had been in drive we would have crashed right into the metal fence in front of us. I know you had to be there, but it was so stinkin funny. She was ready to get out of the driver's seat. I told her that it was my fault. I kind of just assumed that she knew what she was doing. What was I thinking? Anyway, I did a better job of explaining what everything was and that she just had to gently press the gas and break. She drove down the alley behind our house and even made a little turn that she thought would be too hard. Now I've created a monster. That's all she's been talking about and asking when she can do it again. Anyway, we had a good time!!

Shame on you for not taking the time to keep your blog up to date. :)
Enjoy your Walk. I haven't been, but everyone has always said that even if they didn't go into it with the right heart, they came out changed for the better.
I remember learning to drive. Luckily, we had a farm to learn on. I think I put 50 miles on a 1/4 mile road the first day I was learning. That's a lot of laps.
