This picture makes me smile.

To date, my November babies have an extra dose of personality.
I can't wait to see how Jared develops.

T-ball registrations are in the mail.
Yes, registrationS.  Bean is going to give it a shot.

I met a homeschooling mother of 5 at storytime last week.
She lives down the road!
Her oldest is 8 and her youngest is 2.
I hope we can connect.
It would be awesome to have someone so close to do things with. 
My two year old has taken to biting.
Of course this is not encouraged and is being dealt with.
I don't know though, whether to be proud of the older ones for not retaliating against a younger, "weaker" sibling or to be concerned that they are not standing up for themselves.

I guess we can make it blog-official, but it is as of yet, UN-official.
Mike applied for and got a new position at work.
We're waiting on paperwork.
He was the shoo-in.
It is exciting and frightening all at once.
While it is potentially more income, it is also more hours and more stress.
He is good at his job and a people person, so he should do well.
I don't know how it is possible to work MORE hours than he already does...
it is going to be tough for awhile.
Prayers are always appreciated.

Our Pastor and his wife just welcomed their second daughter this evening.
She came out at 11.7 pounds and 25 inches long with a thick head of hair!

I started playing the organ again in Church.
I took off two months with the birth of Jared.
I ALMOST scored an organ off of Craigslist.
I know, almost doesn't count.
I like having the piano, but it is just not the same.

I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to Spring!
We are ready to get outside.

If I were to ever look for another house,
I would find a place where it is safe to walk on the road.
We live on a less-than-two-lane road that twists and turns and has no shoulder whatsoever.
I am not comfortable with taking the kids and a stroller for a walk.
So, I'm looking for a treadmill.
This weight has got to come off!

One of my more recent pet peeves,
and probably only because I get it so often, is "Is he a good baby?"
It is mostly coming from older people.
Please, help.
What is a "good" baby?
I mean, they are limited in what they can do...eat, sleep, poop, cry..
Are they good if they do those things?
Does it mean not colicky?
Does it mean sleeping all night?
Does it mean..??  I don't know.
I could go on.
It is morning now.
Maybe I should get some sleep.

Nrcs advertised two free organs (I believe) in their newsletter. Just thought I'd pass on a lead.
