Wordfilled Wednesday!

So today I have my bible study with a couple ladies. So on Tuesday night...I usually listen to worship music and get my Bible Study done. SO I was listening to Passion's Music from 2013. And it came to this song...
Back to the Start (God's Great Dancefloor) SO here are the lyrics...and I'm gonna put the link for the video.
I hope you Enjoy!

I'm coming back to the start
where You found me
I'm coming back to Your heart
now I surrender
take me
this is all I can bring
I'm coming back to the start
our God is freedom
and here we feel Your heart
Your heart beat for us
take me
this is all I can bring
Chorus:
You'll never stop loving us
no matter how far we run
You'll never give up on us
all of heaven is shouting
let the future begin
let the future begin
take me
this is all I can bring
You'll never stop loving us
no matter how far we run
You'll never give up on us
all of heaven is shouting
let the future begin
I feel alive
I come alive
I am alive on Gods great dance floor
I feel alive
I come alive
I am alive on God's great dance floor
I feel alive
I come alive
I am alive on God's great dance floor
I feel alive
I come alive
I am alive on God's great dance floor
I feel alive
I come alive
I am alive on God's great dance floor

Happy New Year!

Do you know what? It's gonna feel good to talk with you this year. Along with doing the different items for my own health and family...I'm making a goal to write more with you! I'm NOT going to bore you with my goals. BUT please know that I'm planning on writing more.
I have my new calendar, a new set of pens, a new journal and some note cards. SO I'm set for hitting the new year. :)

Here are a couple things I'm looking forward to in the year 2014!
~ I'm doing a pen pal with http://whitepeachblog.com/ so I will be doing a little note for my person as well as a little gift every month.
~ I'm excited to see Z-man progress...he has already progressed so much in a couple months of school.
~ I'm excited to read some new books this year...and actually do my thoughts on them here! I already have a list to do.
~ I'm ready to get my health in proper order. Drinking more water, eating cleaner food, more veggies and fruit, move more, etc.

Lookin' back on 2013...

So I'm sorry I haven't been around much in 2013. BUT here is my way of doing a family newsletter.

January -- Was a time of checking in with Z-Man's Neuro doctor to see if there was anything wrong with that. We did the MRI and routine blood work and all the prelim stuff to try to figure out what was going on his little mind and what was going on. We also had Grandpa Tom & Grandma Jean come all the way from Colorado to visit us. We went to Sea World, a light house and just had fun with them while they were here.

February -- My hubby and I just went to Sea World together on a date. We road the rides there, sat towards the front of the shows, Dined with Shamu, we just had fun...it was a great date!

March -- Rick survived one of his tests, we had a good Easter and a good Spring Break.

April -- We have a diagnosis for Z-Man and his lack of communication and social skills...He now has ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and now that we know...we feel better prepared and we think we can figure out how to help him better.

May -- We tried to figure out where we needed to be in far of a school district, if we needed to move, if we needed to stay put, all the questions to "life". We even went on a Residency retreat and had fun with this wonderful view.

June -- We decided to move and are renting a nice house from a former Resident in Rick's program. Rick's parents came out to spend some time with us and sell us their car! We have no more school and we are just trying figure out what Vacation Bible School's to attend this summer.

July -- Getting moved out of the old place and into the new place...wild ride but we love our new place!

August -- lots of birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate, getting things adjusted to the new place, figuring out school for Z-Man

September -- Getting into the routine of Z-Man in school (a lot of the time A-girl and I spent it in the car as we dropped him off at school and picked him up)

October -- Another full month of birthdays to celebrate! Getting Z-man's new IEP (Individualized Education Plan) figured out and adding bus to it, so Aspen doesn't have to spend a long time in the car. We even went to Gatorland.

November -- Did the what am I thankful for this month with photos on my Instagram. Gearing up for the holidays but first Thanksgiving at our house.

December -- Rick finished off a "harder" rotation at the beginning of the month, then we settled down to get Christmas stuff ready for Z-Man's teachers, family members and friends at church. We did have our first time of going Strawberry Pickin' on Christmas Eve.  We actually went to Sea World 2 or 3 times...

It's been long over due...

For those that want to read this blog every day...or regularly...I am sorry.
Left seems like it's the same old same old...Such as my day usually holds these items.

~ Make sure the kids are up and fed (they usually always get up on their own)
~ Get Z-Man on the bus for his day of school
~ Spend time with A-Girl as she is the only one home with me...occasionally do a little shopping with her. (Like grocery or craft shopping)
~ Some Tuesdays I have a Bible Study I go to along with A-Girl
~ Get Z-Man off the bus
~ Get the kids lunch
~ Wrangle the kids for a while; either go to the park, watch a movie, maybe even go to the pool (the water is still pretty cool)
~ Get A-girl down for a nap and try to get some "down-time" with Z-Man.
~ Get dinner ready and feed the kids
~ Have fun with the kids
~ Get the kids ready for bed, tuck them in and clean up the tornado left behind by said kids.

My wonderful hubby, is an intern at a hospital. SO his schedule is changing every 2 or 4 weeks. Some of his rotations are better than others...and he is home at dinner, sometimes he is home during the day but gone during nights, sometimes he has the weekend off, sometimes he's working for 24 hours straight, sometimes he has a day off during the week, on and on I could go.

I'm very lucky, I have been having a great start of my business. I basically feed my hobby of knitting and even sewing. You can always ask questions about it here OR find me on Facebook -- business page is called Rapped with Luv.

I'm hoping to get back to writing more on here. I need to process things a little more. BUT for now. I'm going to leave you.
