January Recap (Updated)

~ We spent the last day in 2011 cheering on our Texas Aggies as they beat Northwestern University.

We enjoyed the game with my brother, Dean Jentes, and Uncle Jim Whitacker before driving back to Hurst, where we would ring in the New Year with those in New York's Time Square via the TV.  :-)
~ We watched the last of the 2011/12 college football games, and we're ready for the 2012/13 season to begin.
~ Wes and I celebrated our 16th anniversary. Katherine & Sebastian brought us breakfast in bed (french toast & bacon), and they sang us a song they'd written just for us.  We are so blessed and have the best kids EVER!!!!
~ The first week of 2012 the kids and I eased back into a school routine.
~ The kids and Wes got new bicycles, and we began riding together as a family.
~ Katherine began an 8 week art class at the Hurst Recreation Center on Wednesday mornings.
~ Katherine's 2nd semester of piano lessons began.
~ I attended the Lifeway Amazing Wonders Aviation 2012 VBS Preview Event in Fort Worth.
~ Katherine & Sebastian began an 8 week homeschool P.E. class at the Hurst Recreation Center on Mondays. Since attending these homeschool classes we've made new friends and found a local homeschool group that meets at the park on Mondays when the weather permits.  :-)

~ We had a family photo taken for our church directory, and Sebastian wore his first full fledged suit.  He wasn't as thrilled about it as the rest of us were.

~We were back at the American Airlines Center to cheer on the Dallas Stars as they played the Detroit Redwings.

~Wes and I were blessed to have a date night when some friends volunteered to have our kids over for a movie night at their house.  :-)
~ Wes began his 2nd semester at SWBTS and is currently in Jacksonville, Florida, at a pastors conference, which is also three hours credit for this semester.  :-)

Next month the kids begin children's choir at SWBTS.  They will also each be participating in a different activity offered at SWBTS Recreation Activity Center (known as the RAC).  Katherine will be in Ballet, and Sebastian is going to learn Tae Kwon Do.  I'm looking forward to some reading time while they're in choir practice each week and a little personal exercise time while they're in Ballet & Tae Kwon Do.

This is all the news/updates I can come up with, so enjoy your last weekend in January 2012.

* On the last Saturday of January 2012 the kids and I took the TRE (Trinity Railway Express) to the Americian Airlines Center, where we saw the NASA Orion Spacecraft before going inside the AAC to see the Harlem Globetrotters.

 We enjoyed watching the Harlem Globetrotters, but my favorite part was seeing my kids have such a good time.  It was a great afternoon!

Writers Block

It's twelve days into 2012 and our family is getting back into our normal routine, which is really anything  but normal. ;-)

Katherine asked me the other day when I was going to post something new on here as she has this blog as her home page on her computer.  My answer: "I don't know." 

Each time I've sat down to write a post I find myself with writers block,  so that's why nothing new has been up since Christmas. 

I'll get back to it once I'm over writers block.

Give me a week or two, but stay tuned....
