Winter Update

Spring fever hits me every year about this time. This year is no different. I long for warmer days where we can throw on a pair of shorts and flip flops and daylight outlasts supper time. This Winter has been the coldest one I can ever remember. We usually have a few really cold days here each year, but good grief, this year has been COLD for weeks!!! I don't even like wearing a jacket and most of our Winters are mild enough for me to get by without wearing one most of the season. Not this year! We have had school delays, NEGATIVE wind chills, and temps in the teens and twenties for weeks!!! Seriously??? This is Georgia. If its going to be this cold, at least give us a little snow. We have been trapped indoors for days and we are all SO over it. Having to pile on layers and layers of clothing, constantly running the heat on high, and keeping a fire in the fire place day in and day out has become old. We just want warmer weather. That groundhog better have a good forecast when he comes out soon if he knows what's good for him!

All kidding aside, I am so thankful for a warm home and warm clothes. There are many places that are suffering from much colder temps than we are, and I constantly think about people who don't have heat, and poor animals that get left out in the cold. :(

So far the start of 2014 has been good and busy. We rang the new year in at Lake Oconee with our great friends, started back to school, and have celebrated quite a few birthdays. I had Hudson's mid year conference with his teacher to review his progress, and I'm so proud of him. He may be the youngest in his class, but that does not stop him from doing well. He's doing great with academics as well as everything else. I just love his teacher, and thank the Lord for her. We have been so blessed this year and last with the best teachers we could have ever asked for. We are so thankful for his school and the wonderful program that he's in. He has learned so much.
It's hard to believe that it's time to register him for kindergarten. I cannot believe that my baby is going to be in the grade that I teach. This time has come so quickly, and it's so bittersweet.  He had a dentist appointment yesterday, and it was discovered that he has his first loose tooth. WHAT???? He's too little for that!!! I'm not ready for this! People always say that kids grow too fast, but they really do. These times are so short and go by so fast.
We are gearing up for t-ball season. Hudson is so excited to play this year and can't wait for it to start.   We're also looking forward to all of the fun things that Spring brings.  Birthdays, Easter, and warmer weather will be welcomed around here soon!

I'm guilty of not taking one single picture this year with my real camera, so here's a little update in iPhone photos.
