Long Time, No Post

Well, it has been a long time since I have posted on here! A lot has changed since my last post.

Joshua Elliot Speaker came into the world on March 31, 2010. He was a healthy 8 lbs. 7 oz. and 21 1/4 inches long! He has brought a lot of joy to our family.

I am now a Stay at Home Mom, which is a very awesome, albeit sometimes tiring job. I love every minute of it though :)

Kaitlyn is going to be starting 2nd grade at First Baptist School on August 9th! She is excited to be going back to her school and to see her friends again.

Kevin is working hard to finish his psychology degree and is also working out and getting in shape to try and get into the Texas State Troopers. Although the prospect of that job scares me, I know he will get it if it is meant to be.

Other than those updates, everything is pretty much the same. We are living out our wonderful lives and loving the Lord. He has been very good to us :)

Joshua's Room

One of the most exciting things about parenting is decorating the first room! Kevin and I have completed that for Josh and we're so excited! We went with a jungle theme called Baby Cocoa from Babies R Us, and it is just adorable. Check out the slideshow below!

Pumpkin Patch

On Friday, October 23rd, my daughter's first grade class took a field trip to St. John's Methodist Church to visit the pumpkin patch. Kaitlyn went to preschool there so she was very excited to be going back for a visit.
Eating lunch

The nice woman who told the children a Halloween story told stories during chapel time when Kaitlyn was in preschool. She recognized Kaitlyn right away! It was nice to see that Kaitlyn is so memorable :)
Story time

The children had a lot of fun listening to the story and helping the woman to make the sounds effects (Boom Boom, Wiggle Wiggle, Clap Clap!) Then it was time to go out to the pumpkin patch and work on a school project. The students broke up into groups and worked to find the largest pumpkin and the smallest pumpkin. They took measurements and drew pictures of their pumpkins. Kaitlyn helping her group measure

Then it was time for lunch! We all had sack lunches and we sat on picnic blankets and ate and had some more fun.

All in all it was a great field trip that I really enjoyed getting to take Kaitlyn on. I absolutely love the holidays!!
