Emma came home with her Spring pictures for 1st grade. They always come out nicer than the fall pictures. The colors are more vibrant and their backgrounds more appealing. I didn’t even realize that she had picture day. Thank goodness that day, she wore a pop of red to contrast nature’s green. She looks so grown up doesn’t she? I know she’s not the tallest in her class, but every year as she grows, I’m always staring in amazement with how much older she looks. *sigh* I’m never ready for that kind of stuff. Cheers to 1st grade! It’s almost done. This year, she started on reading level E and progressed quickly to L. I’m so proud of her, knowing she worked for that. Reading doesn’t come naturally to her, so I’m so proud of how diligent she was in increasing her skills and not giving up or becoming indifferent to progressing. She’s so resilient, sensitive, but resilient.

My husband has gone to a new level of nerd & bought the Nest- a wireless thermostat, iPhone compatible, controlled even when we’re not @ home. Then we reached a new level of dorkness by naming our new thermostat Seneca. It was either that or Plutarch but Seneca died, so we honored him. LOLS. Wow, this sounds sad. My apologies. Nevertheless, reviews for the device maybe next month, when we see how it’s saving us $$ and how it automatically adjusts to remember our preferences. PLUG: http://www.nest.com/
A great short video explaining Palm Sunday, which is this coming Sunday, and how it continues to reflect and relate to our worship of the Prince of Peace. God bless!! Enjoy 🙂 Skit Guys – Palm Sunday from skitguys on GodTube.
Read Hunger Games in one day. Read Catching Fire in one day. Read MockingJay in one day. I’m a fan of the story, and the characters. Every now and then, I’ll write about elements in the story just for fun. For now, some cute fan art by Sabrina Vincent: “Katniss Everdeen is too busy shooting arrows at people and certainly does not have time to stop and decide which boy she should choose.” “Peeta Mellark is the strong silent type and if he likes you enough, he just might burn some bread for you!” ‘…ALWAYS…’ HAPPY HUNGER GAMES DAY EVERYONE.
In behalf of our family, we just wanted to say thanks to everyone who greeted us with congratulatory words and encouraging advice/hopes, esp. those who join with us in prayer for the baby’s well being (and even gender…hah). I’ve always believed in community, and ever since our first daughter was born, I’ve been so thankful for those who’ve covered us with gracious love and care- extending it to our daughters. You don’t know how much that means to us because they’ve been raised in love. We’re so blessed by you guys, our family and friends. love, perze, marchesa, emmanuelle grace, zienne noelle, & BABY “Oh what a world this life would be…” – sondre lerche If you’ve missed our announcement, here’s a rerun :). Q&A: We weren’t able to address all your comments and questions individually, so we’ve compiled them and here’s some answers: 1. Do you know the gender yet? Is it twins, triplets? We don’t know the gender yet; we will by Mid-April. And no, not twins, nor triplets. haha 2. Is this why we haven’t seen you? More likely, YES! Sometimes, I would just feel tired, or sick, and this time around, my food aversions have been […]
size of a turnip: I’ve only gained 2 lbs, but I should be gaining more weight soon because the baby’s size will double this trimester. Still have some aversions to food. Last night I was dy heaving so much after seeing the salmon I made from last week & smelling everything in the kitchen. Wolverine’s weakness. So far, nothing’s really changed. I’m still doing the same things I’ve done when I wasn’t pregnant, except of course for the obvious restrictions. Being a mom of two, I still have so many responsibilities that I can’t say no to, so even when I have a horrible headache, I just chug through it and try to smile every now and then. And when I’m terribly sleepy or tired, and one of the girls wakes up in the middle of the night, I get up, just a little more slowly now. Also, even though I’m pregnant, I don’t let it deter my ministries in church. God has given me more than enough, and has blessed me with more than I can ever attain myself, all by grace, so I don’t serve to make it up to Him…but man, it’s humbling and I love the […]
