  A Baby and Fam Time

I haven't journaled since last Tuesday for a reason! It seems late Tuesday afternoon things began to go south for me at Texas Motor Speedway. I developed some stomach issues; then later in the week I got some upper respiratory and laryngitis added to the mix. It was bad enough that I had to stay in bed some. The stomach stuff got better, so by Thursday evening we were able to drive into Keller from the race track to meet Jenna and Jared.


At dinner, Jenna and Jared gave us a little gift for helping them move. When I opened it, there were the cutest three little white baby onesies! They are pregnant! (It's very early about five weeks.) We are so excited! We were not surprised. They had already told us they were ready to start a family, and it would be sooner than later. Although they have only been married since November, they had dated three years, both have established careers, and they were 30+ years of age when they married. 



After a celebratory dinner, Jenna went with us to spend the night at the track. Marilyn and Rickie had gotten there by then.

Friday morning, Jenna and I drove home to see Glory in a play at school. She did great. We couldn't believe our little first grader had two solos!






Justin and Jonah came back with us to the race track after the play. Jared came out after he got off work Friday afternoon. It was great to go to the Friday night race together and have all of them with us in the RV that night.  

Jonah did the pinewood derby car race at the Christian Raceway Ministry tent Saturday morning. That's always fun for him. 




Lots of good food and fam time made it all worth the sick stuff going on. We are so blessed!

Easter Pics
and The Races









Rick and I got here yesterday at Texas Motor Speedway for race week. I had cleared the calendar for basically the whole week. Rick would have come even earlier had I not had a meeting yesterday morning. We are here until Sunday.

The rest of the family will be coming in at different times throughout the week. So excited for some good ole family time!

The RV is loaded down with all my stuff (magazines, books, etc.), Rick’s stuff (tv, satellite, etc.), and plenty of food. We are, for lack of a better description, just being little bums out here.  And that’s pretty fun!

Homegrowin'

Glory helped me cut these yesterday afternoon to bring in. 

Oh, how I love the smell!

A Pod, Packing, and Picnics

We came home from Joe Pool Lake this morning. What a beautiful weekend! 

We enjoyed helping Jenna and Jared pack up. This is the view looking into a pod they rented. (This did not hold everything.) 


Their dog wasn't quite sure what was going on. His bed kept getting moved from one room to another all weekend.



We enjoyed visiting and having fun during the moving process. We had a few fast food picnics on their living room floor; I love picnics regardless of where they are. 

Saturday night we had a cookout at the lake. The weather was spectacular for one.

We went to church yesterday morning and heard a great message. Then we all had much earned naps after lunch.  

Now they just need to find a house!
