Family Update

April 2014 Family Update

At the beginning of April I had a 1-day work trip out to Phoenix but I tacked on a trip to Dallas before returning home. It was so great to visit with Kelly (and the fam) and I got to meet Owen, my first Facetime doula baby. Snuggling him was just what I needed to fix my baby fever.

On the homeschool front, things are still going well. We snuck in a few field trips this month to the Hermitage, Nashville Children’s Theatre, the Science Center, Kaleidoscope and Belle Meade Plantation. We are taking our time finishing up 1st grade but I’m already thinking about curriculum for 2nd grade.

I’m getting a little anxious about going to Uganda. Mainly it’s the thought of being away from my people for 2 weeks that has me all jittery. But, the plane tickets have been purchased so there’s no backing out now. Ha! Truly, I’m excited to have this opportunity and thankful that the Lord is providing the funds for me to go. If you were planning to donate but it slipped your mind, it’s not too late. You can donate through the Paypal link online. You can also make a tax-deductible donation by sending a check to the address below and earmarking it for Staci Bishop.

We had a lovely Easter weekend. In fact, it was quite possibly my favorite weekend of the year so far. The weather was gorgeous and warm. We spent so much time outside putting in the garden and going to the TDF egg hunt. We also headed downtown to visit Riverfront Park for the 1st time. Oh my goodness, I love that place! So urban. And because I know you are wondering, that’s our buddy Ledarrin. He lives down the street.

We had a laid-back Easter morning worshipping at home and then headed to Grandmas for lunch with the family and activities with the kids. Our new favorite game is using the hardboiled, dyed eggs in a friendly little game of whiffle ball. It was hilarious, as I’m sure you can imagine!

That’s about it for April. Next month I’m going to be teaching a nYn lip balm class to help fund my trip to Uganda. If you’ve ever wanted to pick my brain about natural health, wellness, herbs, and/or essential oils, here’s your chance. 😉
