But He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness..." 2 Corinthians 12:9a

The Tooth Fairy Has a Bad Memory

Finally lost them both. She will be 8 years old in 2 1/2 weeks! She woke up this morning pouting and said, "Mom, the tooth fairy did not come see me last night". I asked her who the tooth fairy was. She replied, "You are". My reply was...."Sorry, I forgot!" :)

A Day to Celebrate

Today, February 25, marks the first Saturday that I get to drive for the first time in over a year! Mari Morgan and I were able to go out and shop for a while this afternoon. It was so nice to be free to go and do what we wanted. I am so thankful to God for His blessings to me.

First, we went to C&J nursery. We love to go here and look at the flowers. I was in search for something springy to place on the front door. We got a precious bow. I am excited to put it up.

MM was acting goofy!

Next, we went to lunch to Mari Morgan's favorite fast food place(not my choice), but it made her happy. Her other tooth is just dangling. She looks like a cute little hillbilly! ;)

Then, we went to one of our favorite places; Jeremiah's Journey. It is like an indoor flee market, filled with items from local people. Very good stuff, and very good prices!

Of course, it wouldn't be a trip without a trip to Wal-Mart. MM got some money from her Pop, so she wanted to go get a toy. Here she is feeding her new puppy a bottle.

A Special Visit

Our friends, the Fields', came down from Johnson City, TN to visit. It was great to see them. We miss them a lot!

Lil' Dave came to watch Nate play basketball.

Mari Morgan has been waiting for a long time to be snaggle- toothed. She is now awaiting the tooth fairy at age 7 1/2!

Sorry! It has been a while once again. Hoping I can get back to this on a regular basis!!

We are excited that there are only 3 1/2 more months of school left. 15 more Mondays! :) This has been a rough year for us all! I'm loving teaching, but not so fond of everything that goes along with it!! Nathan and Mari Morgan are doing very well in school. Nathan has made honor roll both 9 weeks, and Mari Morgan has made Principal's List. We are so proud of them. But, Nathan has had some organizational issues that sometimes keep him from doing his best. Mari Morgan has had some sleep issues, making it hard for her to wake up at 6:00 each morning. But, overall, we have been blessed and trust God to get us through!

Nathan has moved on to basketball now. Brian is coaching. It has been a very challenging season. We have not won a game. Today, however; we came very close. Nathan scored 4 of the 10 points, but we got beat at the buzzer, 12-10. Very disappointing!! Nathan is having a blast, and has really improved!

Mari Morgan has become the girliest of girls. She wears my high heel shoes all over the house, and wears stick on nails, and will not let me fix her hair anymore. She is all about independence!! :)

She is doing very well in gymnastics, and flips all over the house. She is on a silver team right now, but her coach says in a few months she will be ready to move to gold. We are proud of her and I personally, LOVE gymnastics!!

Below are a few pics of Nate and his basketball skills :). I tried to post a video of Mari Morgan's gymnastics, but it failed.
