Quick Update

I feel like there's a million things that I want to write about and I have zero time. It's almost midnight and I'm going to be so mad at myself tomorrow when I have to be up early for church.

Church? What?? Yes! I've started going to church again and this time, it's at Christ the King. It's the church where Gus goes to preschool and I figured it'd make more sense to go to church there, because we're there twice a week and see many people from preschool, at church. I want him to grow up feeling part of the church and I am so glad we already do.

A week ago, I met with Pastor Brian and we chatted for about an hour about my questions and whatnot about the Lutheran Church. I came to really like what we talked about and I decided that I'd go to the Sunday 11am service to see how I liked it. Well, the 11am is a contemporary service and it was NOT for me. Way too loosey-goosey and I felt empty when I left.

Thankfully, Steve and I went back on Ash Wednesday (with Lesley and Logan) and we had a wonderful experience. I decided that I want to join the church. So no more Episcopal Church for me-- I'm going to be a Lutheran.

Speaking of CTK, this past Thursday (Valentine's Day), was the very first time that Gus went to school and did NOT cry at all!!! I was so proud of him!! I really hope we have turned the corner on this and he'll start enjoying his time at school.

He had a Valentine's Day party at school and it was so fun to see him with his friends and be in his classroom. Here are a few pictures:

Ready for his party!

I adore him!

Steve's dad and Sue Ann came down Thursday night and we've had a nice visit with them. They're going home tomorrow morning. They were kind enough to watch the boys for us today so we could go see a movie! It was so nice!!

Tomorrow I have a hair appointment and I'm getting it cut and highlighted! I can't wait! I also have a nail appointment. It's going to be a day of being pampered for me!!

I'm off to bed-- I'll try to blog again tomorrow. We'll see.
