I just got finished reading over Emma's Student/Parent Handbook for the Public School System. Did you know that they have an entire section of the handbook for Electronic Communication Devices, a.k.a Cell Phones?! It is on page 6 of a 34 page document, so they must mean business. I am just shocked by this. I graduated not that long ago. 14 years ago to be exact. Wow, maybe it was actually a bit longer than I would like to admit. But anyway, you can get suspended for violation of the cell phone policy. This was not an issue when I was in high school 14 short years ago. Of course my first cell phone looked like this:
Oh how technology changes. It so was not cool to carry this little puppy around at school. I mean, you couldn't. It had to stay plugged into your Yugo just to keep power. But now, they have phones that are smaller than the palm of your hand, and it can play all your music, watch music videos/movies, hold pictures, take pictures, etc! Amazing huh? I am afraid of what will be around when my girls are in high school. Scary. Is there anything that just amazes you that exist today but wasn't around, or very different, from your high school days?
My baby is 5 years old. I don't suppose she is still considered a baby, but she will always be my baby. She is more of a daddy's girl than anything. She certainly does love her Poppy. So much so I tend to get a little jealous from time to time. Seriously, a 9.4 lb. baby I gave birth to and she favors her daddy more than me? Argh! I am so happy she is attached to her daddy though. I wouldn't want it any other way. Makes him feel good and makes me proud. Hanna has grown into the most precious little girl. She is so kind, considerate, and loves to make people happy. Just the other day we were in the car and I asked the girls what they want to be when they grow up. Emma tells me she wants to be an animal doctor, and Hanna tells me she wants to be what ever I want her to be and just to let her know when she grows up. I love that kid! We plan to celebrate Hanna's birthday this weekend with a small get together with family. We gave Hanna the option of a birthday party or Hanna Day where we do whatever Hanna wants to do. She chose the latter. We plan to have Hanna Day at the Land of the Little Horses. Nothing says party like a few mini horses. Wonder what the weight limit is on one of those things...hmmm? I'll let you know how it goes! I have been working some crazy hours at work for the past couple of weeks, so I apologize for not posting more regularly. Hopefully soon things will be back to "normal" soon. Ever notice what a funny word "normal" is? The very meaning of it can vary from person to person, and I do mean vary. I will let you all about how the Land of the Little Horses go, but for now here are a some pictures.

Look at the love for Poppy on that face!
Mommy loves you Hanna Jean! You are the most beautiful 5 year old I know! Hugs and Kisses precious one!
I am the mother to two beautiful girls. Emma Catheryn is 7 years old and Hanna Jean is 5 years old. I have been married to the love of my life for 8 years. I am eternally grateful for God's graces that he bestows on me each and everyday. Life isn't easy some days, but His love sure is. I live each day for Jesus, and it is my desire that his light shine through my family.
