Oklahoma City...i think we love you

Well, we have lived in 3 different states in the past year, but we are finally home! Oklahoma City is so much grander then we ever could have imagined!! Pictures don't do it justice (well Ashley's pictures could do it GREAT justice;). I want all of you to come visit our, as the locals call it, "well kept secret".
It's just beautiful here. At times I feel like I could just jump and touch the big blue sky. The clouds are so huge and fluffy that they look fake.We have a family of birds that hang out and eat all our birdseed and Salley's food. We even have wild bunnies hanging out in our yard and Salley goes crazy b/c she knows that they are out there. Our house is coming along. It takes a while to get everything in its place. After moving so many times, it makes it hard to finally "move-in" and settle down.

The children love it here and have made many friends. Josh is getting so much better at his trumpet and he even played in his schools talent show!! He is earning more and more merit badges and is joining the Cooking Club at the youth center. He has already gone on a campout with his troop and done many other activities with them. We go on the family campout in June. And he goes to boyscout camp too & he is soooo excited! They built a basketball court right behind our house & he is in heaven! Josh plans to make Eagle Scout faster than anyone ever has :) We are proud!!

Marlee...well, she's Marlee :) She managed to brake another bone, but it doesn't stop her. She joined Fine Arts Club at the youth center and is perfoming tonight in her schools talent show. She is taking after her "Aunt M.E. " (marybeth) and busting out the hip hop moves.She will be dancing to "Oohh Ahhh" by Grits (Christian Rap :) The cast came off on Friday, but she is wearing a black brace thing to help with the transition. Praying the child doesn't brake anymore bones!! She is getting so much better at her art and she is ALWAYS drawing or painting or making me something. Marlee is my little mini-me! We are proud of her too!!

They are both doing great in school..all A's & B's and they are adjusting better then we could have ever thought. School gets out in just 2 more days for them & they are READY for the summer. Cooking camp with a professional chef, swimming, camp outs, South Carolina...they can't wait to see family & friends!

As for Darb & me, well we are just enjoying our life with our children. We went to a performance Saturday night, Music From Two Shores, at the Civics Center Music Hall in Downtown Oklahoma City. We felt like "Country come to Town" hehehe

Anyway, we love all of you & we thank you all for prayers and support through this new journey in our lives!

Love, Kristin
