Get With It, Coleman!

"For everything there is a season,
A time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace."
Ecclesiates 3:1-8

One of my all time favorite scriptures. It is a great life reminder!

Speaking of life reminders ... it's been a while!!! I REALLY need to sit my butt down, atleast once a week and blog. It's good therapy. It's also a good passdown for Brooke one day, when she gets older.

Life is good over in these parts. I still work for the transportation company for Academy. It's been about a year and 1/2 now. I still enjoy it. There have been a few bumps, but like any job nothing that I couldn't overcome. It's definitely a fast paced business and I work more now than I ever did. I'm just holding out for that big break when I'll be able to slow down a little and enjoy life.

Brooke turned 5 last Wednesday!!! My little baby is now definitely my little girl. She loves all things Spongebob, dress up, Barbies, playing house, playing with her best friend Chesney, and has more energy than anyone I've ever seen. Did I ever have that much energy?!?! She is sleeping by herself now. I know that sounds like it should be old news, but nope - it was the one thing we both had a hard time breaking. She sleeps in her big girl bunk bed and has done fine with it since day one. I'm starting to believe it was more me than her. LOL She could have probably slept by herself ages ago. She's a good cuddler, what can I say?! :)

She did fantastic in Pre-K and loved it. She never missed a day and always was ready to get up and go. She was the quiet but very sweet and lovable kid in her class according to her teachers.

She had her Hollywood Recital in June and performed a Little Mermaid song, Hannah Montana's 'Icecream Freeze', and the Dirty Dancing 'I had the time of my life' song. We are signing her up for Jazz on Monday nights and she'll still be doing Ballet/Tumbling/Tap on Thursdays. Keeping her busy, but she enjoys it alot.

We went to Crescent Beach, FL (south of St Augustine) last week for her birthday. We had a great time. It was a much needed vacation!!! We stayed on the beach most of the time, ate great seafood, and relaxed. Hated leaving, but glad to be home.

Still no + BFP yet, but it is, what is. God knows what He is doing. I can't question Him, I have to put my trust in Him.
