Learn the dance.. Live the dance.. Teach, talk and dance the dance!

"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4

Whew!  We've been busy for the last few days, and a power outage caused all sorts of havoc with our internet access these last two days. 
Monday was a great day, we went to the playground to meet some friends, and spent about 3 hours in the sunshine!  Woot!  Then came home and the kids spent another hour or two outside in our dirt pile. 
Today we went to Fort Drum to drop off prescriptions for my Dad, and killed some time at the playground on base.  Met up with some interesting people, and one of them will be coming with us tomorrow as we go back to the playground from Monday. 

Got to talk to Jon this morning, and (insert praying on my knees figurine here) he said they are supposed to be out of the field on Thursday, unless they don't get finished.  then they are stuck til next Friday.  Boy, oh boy, I'm praying he gets out of the field sooner.  We still wouldn't be able to fly until at least May 14th, but there would be more time for him to locate a decent apartment before our stuff arrives. 

I ordered a few things from Family Christian Bookstores, and was soooo excited when they got here two days ago!  I had read pieces of The Message Bible back at Hood, during a Bible study at the Hohner's house, and was pretty interested.  So, I found a parallel Bible, NIV with Message, and that was my big purchase.  I ordered some veggietales (a movie and a worship CD, which Cait LOVES), and the One Year of Dinner Table Devotions.  CAn't wait til we can start reading that each night with Daddy.  We would do it here, but lately we have been having dinner at completely different times, and to be honest, I completely forget about it.  Not to mention my Dad hates it when people have books at the table.  :P 

For those of my readers who pray, I would ask that you keep my nieces and brother in prayer.  They are in a difficult situation, and need God's will to be done in their lives. 

In other random news- we have our Emergency Fund completed!  (For those of you who may not have read all the way back, I am taking Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University).  So yeah us!  On to step two, which is to start the debt snowball.  (Already done, I applied an extra amount of $ to a debt this last payday, and am calculating that it will take 11 months at this current rate in order to pay it completely off.  But that's only if we don't pay anything more towards it, and I am hoping that we can.  Once we get settled overseas, I have even thought of watching one or two kids.  Maybe.  I dunno.  I'm sure I'll post more on that later. 
Ooh, and the big thing I am excited for is that I tried out a /Zumba class and LOVED it!!  It is a great mix of dance and exercise, and I like it even more than the Turbo Jam that I have purchased.  I will be going to classes 3 times a week, and my second class is tomorrow night- yeah!

Up next on the blog list will probably be 20 wishes.  I am trying to coordinate and plan my blogs ahead of time, so that I at least have a clue what I'm going to talk about before I sit down to write.  :)  Happy reading, ya'll!
