|Brian Teaching Kole The Ropes|
Brian and his co-worker had to ride together to a meeting. The man (I'll call him Joe for this post) asked Brian to ride with him; which is abnormal. Brian usually drives to meetings....and has never had to attend with Joe. Upon leaving the parking lot, Joe's CD player began playing. It was his preacher. Joe asked Brian what church he attends. Brian told him where we attend and explained that we're Catholic and our children attend Catholic school.
|Go Daxx, Go!|
Joe then told Brian that he used to be Catholic and that's not how his parents raised him. Brian explained that what some Catholics are taught at home and what The Church actually teaches can sometimes be two very different things. (And vice versa: Some Protestants don't know their church teachings.)

|Kole's First Time Mowing|
Joe decided to change the subject. Joe is a Christian. Brian knows that, I know that...and now...I think Joe might know that Catholics are Christians too.
2. Kazz and Becca are thinking about going back to school. They're heading over to the college to check out their options. Recently, both of them have talked with their employers about advances in the company and even more education seems to be the key.

4. We have entered the spring/summer where Daxx and Kole are 8 years old! You know what that means?! They can learn to mow the grass! Whoot! Oh how we love eight year olds. It's also time to see who's taller. Daxx is older by 1 minute, so he's always taller. (That's how we explain it to Kole, anyway)

6. Me...well, I'm feeling better now that the sun is coming out more often. I feel like writing more. I'm adjusting to the new gluten/dairy free diet. I'm making lists of Good/Bad foods and learning what is best for my body. Now to get my body moving more....I will make this happen! My good friend, Stacy, is working her butt off and giving me inspiration to move mine off the couch. I can't wait for May to get here. I'll turn 42 and we get to start camping again. Here's to hoping for a great summer!
