Hi Lo: February 12th


1) Phil got a day off from teaching on Wednesday when supposedly a snow storm was coming. I say supposedly, because the storm turned out to be a dud, but I got to spend the day at home with my hubby. Yay!

2) Got a note from John-Paul's teacher saying he is doing really well in school. She had called us a couple of weeks ago to tell us that he was having a little trouble controlling himself in class. Turns out he was speaking out of turn, and even correcting the teacher on occasion! He is totally a know-it-all type of boy, and he's very intelligent, so he thinks it's his job to correct people. He's not trying to be malicious, just useful. Anyway, rudeness and disrespect are not allowed at school or at home, and so we are glad to hear he is doing much better!

3) At the end of the school day today, it is officially February Vacation week. The kids are so excited to be at home for a whole week with Daddy also being off!!

4) My Giveaway ends tomorrow! To enter, just leave a comment on this post, or tell people about it and leave the link for an extra entry. Winner will be announced on Valentine's Day.


1) Been working a lot.

2) Please pray for something we are dealing with right now, I don't want to talk about it yet, but we would appreciate your prayers. Thanks!!

What are your highs and lows this week?


  1. Enjoy the time off!!! God Bless! Cathy

  2. An extra day with hubby and a full week off for the kids/hubby next week! Hooray! Enjoy!

    Hope things go well as you put in the extra hours at work right now. Adjustments in your household, I'm sure.

    Will send up extra prayers for your intention.

  3. Snow days are great. So glad that John Paul got a great note from school. Those are always encouraging.
    I will pray.

  4. Arrived to this Blog by accident. Found an opportunity ... I'll pray for you and yours as requested.

    God bless.

  5. Sending prayers to your family.

    My Hi: a successful night last night for both of my girls.

  8. Praying for you, Colleen. Isn't it great to have extra time with your husband? One of life's (God's) extra bonuses for us!

    Can't wait to hear about the giveaway winner. I hope your family has a very blessed St. Valentine's Day!

  9. We were glad you had a snow day we got to chat to Pedro and Laura on Skype. If it weren't for the snow day Pedro would have been at work.

  10. Your new header is so darn cute. I'm not sure if it is truly "new" since this is the first time I've had for bloggery in months, but I just had to say how much I love it!
