Focus on the Family ~ April 2010

It's time again for Focus on the Family ~ a monthly plan, created by Connie @ the Young and the Relentless, to help us Mamas get organized, and be deliberate in our actions. Make a plan for your own family, and head over to Connie's to link up!

April is going to be a busy month! {Don't I say this every month?} Makenna just started Soccer. She has practice on Mondays, Sierra has dance on Tuesdays, I teach Tap on Wednesdays, and Makenna's games are on Saturdays. Easter is tomorrow. Uh, how did that happen? We have a trip South planned to visit my sister at the end of the month. And hopefully, within the next week or two, we'll get approval from the county to start building our house. Yeah, we're going to be busy.

Some goals for April:

Last week our Bible Study group finished Breaking Free by Beth Moore. It was a toughie, and I think we all felt a strong sense of accomplishment to have finished. But without a lesson each day to keep me on track, I'm afraid I'm going to feel lost. We will start another study in May, but until then my goal is to try a study on my own.

I'd like to plan more activties with the girls. In between practices, lessons, and games, I'm hoping that the weather finally cooperates so that we may get outdoors. Locally, there is a tulip festival that is open through the end of April. Last year the weather was gorgeous. This year . . . there has been a LOT of rain. I'm hoping we'll have a few dry days so that we can head out there.

And, of course, I'd love more time with my husband. I'm enjoying our evenings together, going over plans for our new home. I look forward to more of that in the future.

It's pretty simple, really. More time together making memories. Less "stuff".

Simplicity.

That's what I long for.

Very exciting news about the house!

And wow, you want to add more activities between soccer and dance? You are a brave woman. The days between baseball around here (there aren't many) are spent resting up for the next round of games and practices.

Your days sound about like mine! Crazy spring time schedule. (Plus, I start subbing full time Monday through the end of the year!) That is so exciting your house building is in the near future.

Loved the soccer pics too!
