It just kind of slipped right on by here in the blog world. I had a birthday (back in March), and turned 29, one year closer to 30! It was a great couple weeks actually. I think everyone deserves being celebrated, and everyone should celebrate their own life and gifts and blessings they've been given, and I had a great time with friends and family on multiple occasions! 

 But, like I said, it's one year closer to 30, the deadline for my 30 before 30 goals. So I thought I'd give a little update on some of the new ones I've accomplished...

#4. Make a 1-year baby book for each of the children. I'm about 1/3 way through Hannah's now.
#5. Get photos taken as a family. We finally did this in the fall!
#6. Scrapbook my college Europe trip. I did finally start this as well.
#10. Clean out old baby items. We have definitely been doing this! Will probably be able to officially mark it off after our MOPS garage sale in June!
#12. Start singing on worship team at church. I do this regularly now, every two or three weeks, plus many "specials"!
#13. Play French horn for church special music. Do this regularly as well and it has encouraged others to join in as well!
#18. Volunteer at the local library. I definitely offered and make contacts but never heard back. Maybe it's not a need??
#23. Go tent camping as a family. We did this last fall with lots of other friends and will do again on our own hopefully several times this summer!
#28. Get in the habit of getting up before the kids. For the most part I've done this. I had to with Eli being in school this year. Now I'm typically up around 6am. Sometimes I get actual Bible reading done then and sometimes not.

So there's where I'm at so far! Still much more to finish throughout the year!!

Hey Sarah,

Happy belated birthday. I am glad to hear that you had a good day. 30's not so bad, and 29 leading up to is is pretty good.

Anyway, you have not heard from me in a while because life took over and I was in a deep tunnel going through some things for a while. I wrote updates to family and prayer warriors during that time, and I recently added them to my blog. I don't know if you will be interested or even have to time to read about what God was doing in my life here on the gulf coast, but I am sending you a link to my blog just in case.

I enjoy following your blog and praying for you and your family. Your sharing of your life has been a blessing to me.
