January In Review

We've had a very unusual January. We had a wonderful Christmas break from school, I was supposed to go back to school on Tuesday, January 4th for a teacher's work day and the the students were coming back on Wednesday, 1/5. This week went off without a hitch. But then on Sunday, January 9th about 7:30 or 8:00 PM it began to snow. It was very steady and beautiful snow, but the beautiful snow didn't last long. By morning there was about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of snow and at least an inch of ice. Well, that meant no school for me and Eli and no work for Jay. Tuesday wasn't any better and finally Jay went back to work on Wednesday, Eli and I finally left home on Thursday afternoon. We had no school that entire week -- it was fun for a few days, but by Friday we were ready to be back into our routine. Well, Monday of the following week was MLK day, so no school. Finally, on Tuesday we all returned to our normal schedules. The following week on Monday Ms. Tammy and Mr. Allen needed the day off, so Eli and I stayed at home again. I'm hoping for a normal 5 day work week this week -- it's only Monday, so we'll see. This past weekend we went to visit Jay's parents and his brothers and their family. We celebrated baby Anaiah's 1st birthday -- what fun that was.

One very special event this month was that Jay and I re-joined my childhood church. God has taken us on a 2 1/2 year journey through 2 different churches. We've enjoyed the experience and prayed endlessly about what God wanted us to do and where he would have our family. He finally placed up back at FBC Social Circle and we're so excited to be there with "old" friends. We've both taken some time off from serving, but God has shown us that it's time to jump back in and get back in action. We are so excited to see what God has in store for our family.

Here's hoping that February 2011 is a little more normal than January!!
