i've been meaning to update for a while now but alas, time escapes me. sometimes i wonder where it goes, but nonetheless it's gone. so here i am, halfway through march trying to figure out what needs to be said.
the season of lent began last week. i love this time of year. i've grown to love celebrating and participating in lent. it's meant something different to me every year and this year will not disappoint. i'm quite certain.
spring break is this week. so far so good. monday was quite dreery so we stayed in doors. the kids watched movies and i did 4 loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen and changed the sheets. whew. productive day.
today we went to pops for the first time. it's a very cool gas station/restaurant. they have $2 tuesdays (burgers) and soda pop galore. the kids and i went with some friends and had a great time. they especially enjoyed getting to drink a big bottle of pop all by themselves with no sharing and no watered down taste (that's right, i still water down the sugary drinks)
tomorrow looks to be a beautiful day so i think we'll head to the zoo and see the elephants who have been in tulsa for quite some time. they have a new home and it sounds like it's pretty impressive.
then on thursday we are headed to texas to stay for a few days to do whatever the heck we want to do. we have a few things "planned" but mostly we are just relaxing and enjoying being away for a while. can't wait for that!!
so that does it for the ven's right now. ready for school to be out and see what the summer has in store.
