Tball and Grandma Quack


Sebastian has started T-Ball and is doing fantastic. He's hitting great and working really hard on fielding.

Grandma Quack came into town and was here for the lunch party on Friday. The kids had so much fun playing UNO with her in the evenings. I love that they get to enjoy card games with her like I did as a kid.

It's so hard to say goodbye






The bookmobile out of the Kalamazoo Public Library has been a huge part of our life as a family. We decided to start going when Alexandra was less than 2. I remember being pregnant with Sebastian when we made our first visit. Tonight was a really, really tough night. There was something bonding for us as a family going to the bookmobile every tuesday night. We'll still go to the library but it just won't be the same.

Color, Color, Color

I realized the other day that I don't think we've ever colored easter eggs. With the kids being 6, 5 and 3 I thought I could do this. It's spring break and we aren't going anywhere, lets color some eggs.

How are you leading....

I've been in a lot of leadership roles. Even in middle school and high school I loved to be in charge of things, er I mean lead things. :) I've always felt that I was a pretty good leader. I'm involved in a couple of things right now where my leadership is needed. In the last month, I've been convicted of complaining a lot about the people that I'm leading. I've always run under the assumption that If I can do something, everyone else can to. But that's not always the case. Everyone is gifted differently, if anyone should know that its me. In the last couple of years I've tried things that I was not gifted at and struggled. I was clearly convicted about how I'm leading people who are struggling. If you are in leadership, think about the people you are leading. They might not be like you, encourage them as best you can, and lead them. It is easy to write that but not so easy to do as I can tell you. I'm asking God to help me. I want to be a better leader, not just one that sits around and complains about those that I'm leading.
