Forever Thankful For So Much

I have been really looking forward to a few things and wanted to jot them down and thought this was the perfect place to do so. We used to make it up to Ohio at least once a year before our daughter was born. We made it up once when Kate was 5 months old to visit Mikes dying grandmother and grandfather. Thankful we did, because they both died within a week of each other, a week later. It has now been three years since our last Ohio trip and we are heading up there in June for Stephanie's wedding. Kaydee gets to be the flower girl, Gavyn, the ring bearer, and Mike will be a groomsman. I am looking forward to introducing our little Bear to the family and reintroducing the little spitfire. Kaydee rarely stops talking about 'the wedding' and apparently, there will be a pool and s'mores at this wedding. According to Kaydee. And only Kaydee. I have decided against disney world this year and am planning a mountain cabin trip for just the four of us in November. I have started researching this week and have gotten so excited to spend a few days away from the hustle bustle that every day life entails. It originated as a romantic getaway for just mike and I and I quickly decided to include the kiddos after seeing the fun they can have. More on that trip another day. Gavyn has been in speech therapy since November now and I am so impressed with his improvement. He has come such a long way from his silent expressions. He is a little grabber now and likes telling his 'thith' what his thoughts on the matter are. Our backyard renovation is well underway and almost complete. Just a couple more truckloads of gravel and some shrubs and we are done! The kids have certainly been enjoying the freedom of playing in an enclosed area instead of the driveway where we were for the last couple of years. It's certainly a sanctuary for us all. I'm looking forward to the fire pit area being completed so we can start toasting marshmallows and roasting hot dogs. There is much that I am so thankful for and I absolutely never forget to thank the almighty for the blessings he has bestowed upon us. Shalom
