Various Updates

Yes friends, I did not get to post a Friday fun last week - sorry about that. In lieu of a Friday fun from last week, here are some pictures of my recent trip to San Antonio!

I traveled to San Antonio on Thursday morning (arrived in SA around 4) and had a GREAT weekend with the Fergasons. It was delightful to just sit in the house, relax, play with kids, laugh and enjoy their antics, hang out with Karen and John, Dorothy and Nick, and to get to visit with Sarah and Myles (who came down for the weekend).

I didn't do any homework all weekend (which in hindsight was a mistake, probably) and instead was able to be fully present. Though I am totally stressed out about school, it was totally worth it to spend a few days with some of my favorite people. Enjoy the pics!

Me, Sarah, and Myles enjoying Easter festivities. The weather was fantastic - we woke up early and it was pouring rain, but it cleared up and was sunny, breezy, and warm. We were able to eat and relax outside. Sarah and I teared up (of course) when she and Myles had to leave. It was really special to be able to spend some time with them before they get married in June!

Little Drexel is so grown up now! In the Fergason house, you can tell when the little ones have grown up because they start using tools. :) Also, he talks up a storm now and is obsessed with "Clone Wars." He is quite a character and totally uniquely himself, but also takes after both Jared and Ryan.

The four oldest kids. Ryan will be 11 this fall (!), Andilin is turning 9 this summer, and Jared will be 7 next month - that is crazy to me - I have known them since Ryan was 2 and Andi was a baby! Now Drexel is 2 1/2. I love this picture - how cute are these kiddos?! (Two of them are wearing LA t-shirts i gave them, as pajamas; one is wearing star wars pajamas, the other came out in his pajamas and said, "Hey! Spider Man!")

Right when I arrived and was getting settled, we took some pictures. We tried to get all three of the older kids and me a couple times. This one makes me laugh because we had just said, "Ryan, scrunch down a little bit more." And instead he stood up really tall - which he thought was hilarious. And frankly, I think its pretty funny, too.

The newest Fergason - baby Brooklin Dorothy. She is about 3 months old here, but is still really tiny. She is so small and has such a lot of hair that makes little cute pointy bangs around her face that they call her Pixie. (Drexel calls her "Brookie" - so cute) It was awesome to be able to sit with her for moments at a time and just watch her face. She has a great smile! I love her with my whole heart already.
