Visitors! It seems we've had a steady flow lately since we got the "office" switched to our bedroom and we actually have a "guest room" now. Starting with Karen, Cam, and Jac back in mid-March for a weekend-long play date, followed by my parents the next weekend for Jude's birthday (which was lots of fun and my parents helped a ton!), and most recently Pack's mom came for an overnight visit last week while traveling to Lynchburg (she took us out for dinner. and gifted me a nice solo grocery shopping trip!!!). It's been fun. I love having visitors although I'm still learning how to be a good hostess. Luckily, family is very forgiving so it's been stress free.
Traveling to SC. It's always fun going home, but that drive is surely dreaded. We've been to South Carolina a couple of times this past month. One time I just didn't want to stay by myself for that long while Pack had to be in Florence anyway, and then there was this past weekend that had been planned for a while. This past weekend was an adventure of its own...

A brand new day. Back to the grind, right? Started today off with a 2 year old check-up for Jude only to have it thrown in my face that he's growing faster than the speed of light (okay, not that fast, but three and a half inches in just a few months is pretty significant). He jumped from 75th percentile in height to 95th although he's still a scrawny little thing. I swear I'd kill for his BMI... Baby Jude is turning into a boy, I guess!
There are so many things going on in my family that I have to be thankful for right now. We are really blessed and so grateful!!!! Hopefully, this month will be a little slower paced so I don't forget to take some time to breathe (I doubt it though...).
