I have wanted to blog for a while but there is just so much I want to blog about that I have been overwhelmed and just couldn't decide where to start! The kids have done so much, we have done so much, and the Lord has been working in our hearts so much--and I want to share it all...but couldn't decide where to start so I have just kept putting it off and putting it off. If I am being totally transparent...this has been pretty true of several areas (laundry, anyone?) of my life over the past couple of months. We haven't really been any more busy than normal...I have just been less motivated than normal. Anyone else with me? I feel like I am finally starting to move out of this lazy-feeling haze and back into the motivated world. And now that our house is almost-not-embarrassing-type-of-clean (thanks in a large part to my awesome man), I would like to start catching up on what has been happening in our lives. I am starting with Spring Break because those are the pictures that are next on my camera and I have to start somewhere. Ha!
My son, less than 3 minutes into our time in the safari informs me that he has to pee. Now. I tried to tell him he would HAVE to wait--there are no bathrooms and there are wild animals outside of our car. 5 minutes later he is holding himself saying, "I have to go! I can't hold it! It's about to spill!!!!" I can tell by his panicked expression that he is serious. He has to go. Now!
We are in the middle of going up this giant hill at a snail's pace. An Emu even gets in front of our car and causes us to go even slooooower. Reid is doing the potty dance the whole time and I am begging him to wait 5 more seconds. We finally pull over and I had to dump out my water (that I had packed to drink that day...with no back-up) out of the window. I just barely rolled my window down to dump it out and thought I rolled the window back up...but in all the craziness accidentally rolled it down all the way. I am getting him situated when we look up and are face to face with the Emu. Insert panic. We are all yelling and panicking as the window slowly rolls up. Annnnd that is the story of how Reid peed in a cup in our car for the first, and hopefully last, time.
And we had a picnic while we were there and this rooster just walked around cock-a-doodle-dooing the whole time. All in all, I called the trip a success.
And we were very excited that is was baby Breanna's first birthday!
Well, I didn't take any pictures Friday so I don't really remember what we did that day. (:
