There is so much to catch up on. Steve's family was here for the blessing, and we are grateful that they spent their Spring Break here. I wasn’t much for entertaining yet, and Steve had to work like normal, but the park was nice, the company was great, and I know that everyone loved the pool.
The following weekend, Steve packed a picnic, and we drove to a place called Cold Creek. It was more like a small lake. It was great for the dog to run and swim and the kids to splash in. I didn't pack extra clothes, so the kids rode home mostly naked. They thought that was funny. That was a fun afternoon. Thanks Steve.
My mom came for her Spring break this past week. It was so nice to have her. I had nothing shy of a mountain of laundry, and she caught that up. It was fun to be with her and no real agenda. Also she watched the boys while I ran a couple of errands during the day. One of those errands was a job interview on a Labor and Delivery unit. It was at the hospital that I delivered. The interview went well, and I am grateful that they offered me the job on Friday. Women having babies is job security. I am glad to be a nurse in this economic climate, because heaven knows that I have to work. I start May 11. We need the income, but the thought of it nauseates me. I hate leaving a baby. Plus I start orientation on days and it’s 4 10 hour shifts for the duration of orientation, then I will do nights. Orientation is 3 months…all summer. We are sooo grateful that 2 of my friends here have offered to watch the kids for the summer. My kids love them both, and I am so relieved that I will leave Trevor with them and not at a daycare as a newborn! What a huge blessing!
This week is Jenna’s Spring break. We are enjoying chillin at home and heading outside when the weather invites us. Play dates, playdough, movies, and a couple crafts/activities that I have planned should round it out. However, I got out a parenting book tonight because Zac is making me crazy!!!! On a bright note he is doing awesome using the potty! Yeah!!!!
Trevor is 5 weeks old now. I'd love to go on and on how wonderful it’s been to have him, but I will spare you of all the tender feelings. But know that he does smell wonderful, he is like in the top 3 cutest babies ever, and he is growing too fast. I know you are going to love this smile!
