What's the Plan?

I just finished my teaching degree, and I've wanted to be a teacher since I was 15 years old. Thankfully, there are plenty of teaching jobs available in our year. 
So, I've spent the last month and a half just being a stay-at-home mommy and wife. Obviously this is a great thing for the family, but I've also been job hunting because we could use a little extra income. 
This is nothing new to the world. People need money to survive, and in a dual-teaching household, the money is not growing on the trees. :) 
After an interview that didn't end up in a job (not a teaching position), I've been listening to God a little more closely, and I feel like not getting this jobs is His way of preparing me for the future and also for the now. 

The now is being home with these sweet babies helping them grow, learn, and snuggle (obviously).

He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

The Snow is Gone....for now.

The snow has melted, and we've been playing outside all day today in the glorious 60 degree weather!
We'll all be on Spring Break in one week....except Chance. :(

Thankfully, the snow has melted and the ground is relatively dry. Maisy isn't dragging in 10 pounds of dirt everyday. :)

These are just some snapshots from the past few days. I hope you guys have a great week!

A Frozen Puppy

Snow never bothered me until we had this pup.
Maisy loves running in the snow, but she comes in with snowballs stuck all over her fur! The snowballs are impossible to get out for some reason, and they leave wet puddles everywhere!
I'm ready for warm weather!
Also, I'm ready for no homework. Can I get an amen?

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

Landon's 4th Birthday Party

Landon had a great day surrounded by his family and friends.
Our people came over to our house for a Ninja Turtles/Power Rangers BBQ and it was fantastic!
It was very laid back, and Landon felt so special!
I'm so thankful for our people!

Who is wise and understanding among you?  By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.

To Chance

I love this picture.
It shows exactly what I want to express to my sweet husband today.

Chance, this picture shows the way you have always treasured and taken care of me.  The way you love me is something I don't deserve, and I am grateful for you.  Never change.

Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in good faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.  By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.
2 Timothy 1:13-14

Landon is 4!

Another year has gone by.
Every birthday post starts the same way, so this time I'm just going to show my absolute favorite pictures of my sweet little 4 year old.

We love you so much, and we can't wait to see what God has in store for you, Landon!

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go."
Isaiah 48:17

The Beginning

Happy Tuesday!

This week feels so refreshing to me for some reason.
I'm loving my classes, the kids are having fun at school, and I joined AdvoCare.
Say what?

Yep, and if you want to know more about the journey I have begun you can hop on over to my other blog: Being Their Healthy Mom.

I know so many people personally who have changed their lives in more ways than one with AdvoCare, and I cannot wait to join them!

Oh, and what is a blog post without some cute pictures?

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Romans 12:4-5

More Firsts

The babies and I started back to school yesterday.
Landon and I were ready.
Hadley would prefer to stay home with me.  I don't blame her. ;)
Everyone (except Isaac) had a good day and that's what matters.

Isaac was punched by a kid in line after recess for no reason.
The principal called to let me know that the other child had been disciplined and Isaac was tough and doing great.
I was not happy, but Isaac truly was alright, and we resolved it.  Poor Buddy Bear was shocked as to why someone would hit for fun.
I'm with ya Buddy Bear!

My two first day cuties!

Here they are this morning happily rolling a ball together.  I love these moments!

Here is a picture of my first day back.  These are my Group 2 homies (minus Kaleb) in what is sure to be our favorite class.
Is it just me, or would this picture look good on a t-shirt?  
I can't be the only one who sees that.

By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.

Goodbye, Summer!

Summer break is officially over here at the Fisher household.
Chance went back to school today, Isaac went last week, and the rest of us go on Wednesday.
We spent the summer well, though!
Lots of swimming at Aunt Lisa's, hanging out with family, visiting grandparents, reading, napping, coffee dates, etc.
I'd say it was a successful summer break, but I am ready for the school year.

Papa and Landon watching a tractor repair the driveway.  They're so cute together!

 She dressed herself like this.  It's sort of 80's meets hippie in my opinion.

Where I like to read, and where Maisy likes to chew on her bones.

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Isaac's First Day of Kindergarten

It's here!  He's off in his new classroom as I type this.
Who would have thought this day would ever come?
I hate how cliche it sounds, but I cannot believe how fast these (almost) 6 years have passed.
Last night I was grabbing something downstairs and I saw Karen Kingsbury's Let Me Hold You Longer.  If you've never heard or read this story follow this link and skip to 2:09.  Grab a tissue.
Luckily, I had the will power to step away and not read the book alone in the basement.

Here's my handsome Kindergarten guy.

This picture of these two is rare.  They never sit still or hug each other.

Landon is excited for his brother.  He keeps asking when he can go to Kindergarten. :)

I love these crazy guys!

A little comparison of the school boy :)

"And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: 'The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation.  Behold, I stand a the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
