It has been a very wet Spring so far here in West Virginia.
We have gone from 70 degrees, to snow, to rain now. We have a forecast of rain and 58 degrees for the next two weeks or so.
Our Easter forecast looks to be dry. Praise the Lord!
We have many projects for the upcoming weeks.
We have been:
-Preparing for new carpet in our home.
-Hoping to buy a tiller to till the gardens better.
-Painting a few rooms to spruce them up!
-Finishing our bonus room project a little at a time.
I'm sure most of you know that are on a tight budget, that projects take time. We have been praying and steadily getting our bonus room finished that is above the garage. We wanted it to be finished before Christmas but we are no where close. I have learned through marriage and life, that projects take time. Especially when you are not going into debt for them.
I have a few flower beds that need spruced up as well. That is my love!
I love to make a new flower bed and enjoy adding to it here and there.
We were at Lowe's today, and those spring pansises are calling my name. But I held off :)
How is your Spring going where you live?

We are expecting baby BOY #4 in late August, Lord willing!
We have been blessed with three boys so far.
All of our boys have a name that starts with a K. We have my husband that is Kevin, our oldest son is Karson, our 2nd son is Kipton, and our youngest son is Kase.
Coming soon....another K named blessing :)

Around 3:30/4:00 I begin the dinner process each night.
I am thankful to be able to do this.
I know it is a blessing to have dinner on the kitchen table. We pray for the children in the schools that aren't having a meal around the table. It is such a great time for conversation and sharing.
I hear of many families who sit around the living room, while watching TV. This upsets and saddens me, as I know the Lord would have us sitting together while sharing a meal and conversation.
Tonight, I am taking a meal to a dear family friend of ours. They are in deep sadness over a situation.
It is always my hope that I remember how important it is to share a home cooked meal with others when times are difficult. I know after having babies, it's always nice to have a meal brought to the home. There is just something about dinner that is special.
John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Here in West Virginia, we have been having spring like weather.
Tuesday it was 80 and Wednesday 72. It was so nice to have that warm weather.
I can't wait to get outside and get my flowers planted, and our garden going.
It is a lot of work but very worth it. I miss the green grass between my toes, and being able to take long walks to the fishing hole that my boys enjoy.
What about you??
Are you itching for Spring?

It seems we always wish for a white Christmas, but it doesn't happen so often here in West Virginia.
However, we always get the bulk of our snow in January and February.
We've had many snowy days here lately. Today comes 3-5 inches more.
The boys love it. Not so sure about the mommy's who have extra laundry, but trying to embrace the love of it.

I know personally I feel some days I suffer from the winter blues. Mainly, I just love being outdoors. Many days we eat all three meals outside during the summertime. We have three boys that NEED that outdoor sunshine and fresh air. To release the energy, and play away until the sun sets.
Then winter comes.
We are stuck indoors, but it could be a good thing.
I feel almost like a bear hibernating. More time to rest and relax, but that is where the winter blues set in for me. I like to keep busy. I do stay busy with my boys and with keeping of the home. I am one that loves being home.
But I LOVE being outdoors.
Here in West Virginia it has been 3 degrees in the mornings. Our boys still brave the cold once or twice a day and bundle up and go out for about 20 minutes just for some fresh air.
I hope you are somehow, beating the winter blues.
I am dreaming of the warm springy days where we will be creating and planting our gardens.
What about you? What are you looking forward to?

How was it?
Ours was very simple. We have 3 boys and they enjoyed every minute of it. I am thankful to have boys who are truly thankful for the holiday and have positive spirits.
I am blessed to be home with my boys. Home is a place that I love to be.
Tomorrow I need to run out to do some grocery shopping and errands. I normally take my boys right along, but with flu season here in full swing I decided it may be best if they enjoy some daddy time at home.
What about you? Do you do your shopping alone, or do your kiddos tag along each week?
I have done both and I don't really have a preference. I love my children and enjoy them much.
Blessings on the upcoming celebration of 2018!
