Most of the pictures from April, I took with my phone.  Technology amazes me these days.  As I look back at the pictures, I am reminded of how fast life happens.  Flowers have been blooming all over our yard.  Roses, magnolias, tulips, and many more.  The buds grow and bloom overnight!

Here are a few of the many April happenings around our homestead:
Many, many trips to Lowes! (the girls love to "ride" the mowers)
Adison started a new gymnastics class
Steven and I celebrated "9" years together
Abi lost, yet, another tooth
Adison got real glasses
Homework, homework, homework
The "marble jars" were filled to capacity (these were started back in Feb.- more below)
Everyone, but Mommy, seemed to get the stomach bug mid-April
We've made many trips to the park
We've eaten blueberries off of our bush in the back
The girls have been in the sprinkler
Snuggles happened daily
Prayer time has been especially sweet for our family
Moments to learn and lean on God have been abundant

The Marble Jars were filled!
Kind words were recognized.  Putting others first was rewarded.
Obeying when no one could see was acknowledged.
Hopefully, obedience to God was affirmed.
Our hope and goal for our girls through this is self-evaluation
on a level that they can see and understand.
Some days they got 3 marble and some days only one.
But after the jars were full, it was time to celebrate!
To Chuck E. Cheese we went!

We had a couple of eye specialist appointments for Adison this month.  This sign was in all the patient rooms and I found it very comforting to know that these doctors acknowledged the Ultimate Physician.

Our Itty Bitty is captivated with ladybugs!

Life happens so fast.  My word for this season that keeps singing in my head is "captivate".
my thoughts, my prayers, my actions

one of my all time favorites:

 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corn. 10:5
