Yee-haw! The Rodeo is in town!

David took Thursday and Friday of Spring Break off, and we took the kids (+1) to the rodeo carnival. We didn't get to go last year because of Regan's broken arms, so she was really wanting to go this year! This was David's first time to go with us, so it was nice. We got the kids wristbands and sent them on their way. David and I went to the other side of the fairgrounds and got to spend time together walking around and checking things out, and a friend of mine's daughter is doing a Flat Stanley project, so we took a bunch of pictures of Flat Stanley with Texas Longhorns, and all the rodeo animals. It was a lot of fun just being goofy! The weather was great, nice and cool, until we got home and realized we got sunburned!

It's Spring Break and I'm in spring cleaning-purge mode! After cookie season, the house is a wreck so I got a wild hair and just have been going crazy! I've cleaned out the pantry, the kitchen, closets, drawers, cabinets, everything that isn't nailed down has either been tossed or is going to Goodwill. The kids have been getting in on it too, Regan cleaned all the stuffed animals off her bed and has been straightening her room (miracle)!

But, I took a break and took Regan and friends to Gattiland for Mom's Eat Free. It wasn't too crazy. I brought my iPad and read while they played video games. They had a good time and then I got home and got back to purging! Working on #40bagsin40days!

I was SO excited to see Wicked! It was Regan's first musical, and I wasn't sure how she would appreciate it, but I think David is probably tired of being dragged to everything that comes to town. Now I have a new play buddy!

It was great and Regan really enjoyed it. The sets and dresses were amazing. We went early so tickets weren't as expensive, but we did get pretty good seats, and not too far back to see anything, so that was nice! War Horse and Annie are coming, so I am hoping we can go see those too. I love musicals!

Well, the kids had ONE full week of school between Christmas and Spring Break this year! Crazy!! We had a delay every week or a snow day. A couple of times, it was because of the threat of ice, but we never got any ice. I can tell you, I'm over the cold. I know it's worse up north, but I was made for Texas summers!! So, here's the latest ice day. Got a nice 2 hour delay, but our power went out for a few hours so our clocks didn't go off, so we were running crazy all morning anyway!

Radiant Conference

The Radiant Conference this year was AMAZING!! I really enjoyed it, and was so happy that we managed to sell out of our cookies right before the conference started, so I could go and not worry about anything but volunteering! It started Thursday night with Priscilla Shirer, who is one of my absolute favorite speakers, and then Friday morning, Friday evening, and Saturday morning, with Lisa Bevere, and our Pastors, Joe and Lori Champion. The music was great, the specials were awesome, it was just really top-notch. I really enjoyed it, and getting to spend time with friends and have lunch and just have a kind of "girls weekend"!  (David did campus support)  Here's a recap video:
