1. Last weekend was the annual Missions Fair at church. It was the best Missions Fair I had ever been to. The format was excellent. I wish you all could have been there. Alaina and Joya were able to help out too, by handing out programs and kid bags. The kid bags were full of coloring books, crayons, maracas, and snacks because the service was a family service and all kids over the age of 3 were in the service with the adults. Alaina did her job well, even chasing down kids who didn't make it to the table to pick up their bag. I believe her exact words were "There's a kid! I'm gonna get em!"

3. Bria had a rough few nights of sleep for some unknown reason. Maybe she's teething or growing. I don't know. All I know is I would put her to bed at 6:40 (like usual) and then I'd hear her start to talk around 7:30. And then she'd chat with herself until about 10:00. Then she'd get bored and start to yell. Then she'd get mad and start to scream. And I've trained her in such a way that she doesn't fall asleep on me, so if I went in to rock her, it would just prolong the falling asleep. So I'd have to let her scream it out. And that usually took an hour and a half or so. So for two nights in a row we were finally getting to sleep around 1:30. It was fine and all for her; she still gets to take her 4 hours worth of naps during the day. But this momma was a bit cranky. Thankfully last night was back to normal.
4. Next week is Spring Break. And I have zero plans. MOPS on Monday. Alaina seems to have her heart set on going to Target. That's it. Part of me feels like I should make the week amazing, and part of me is just looking forward to getting up at 5:50 every day instead of 5:30. Maybe it's the poor sleep talking, but I feel like I just want the week to be a week of rest.
5. Once again, this seems to be a quick 4. So I'll let Joya see you out:
