First post of 2012

I thought that First Post of 2012 would be appropriate since this is the first post of 2012... and my last post was the last post of 2011.  The funny thing is... it is September and not January! LOL
The last 9 months:
January -
February - Mom had back surgery
March - Spring Break spent with Isabela and her mom from Brazil
April - Allison turned 12, Spent Easter with Kelley, Amber, Ariel and Melanie
May - Allsion Graduated from 6th grade at St. John's
June - the family attended the GOP state convention in Ft. Worth; Keely attended Texas Tech soccer camp, Allison attended Texas Tech Basketball camp, VBS, Allison went on a Youth Fun Trip
July - Allison and Heather went to Youth camp in Brownwood; Allison, Keely and Heather went to Children's Camp; Heather went to Belize on a mission trip;  Keely turned 10!
August - Spent some time at the lake; Allison started Jr. High; Keely started 5th grade; Heather startedher 9th year at St. John's
September - Allison made the Volleyball team.... went from b team to a team in a week; Piano lessons began; voice lessons for Allison began; Soccer season for both girls

I hope this gives  you an update of the Kirk family in a nut shell.....
You may have noticed that there was not a mention of J.  Well he is our Rock and supports us in all we do!  He does get to go fishing every once in a while.
We are enjoying our lake property.  Lots of boating, fishing and playing in the lake! 
Mom is still not doing well.  She has more problems than the back surgury could fix.... She tries to get out, but is not able to do alot for an extended amount of time.... She does however get on the jet skis once and a while!  Watch out if you are on Oak Creek!

Last post for 2011

I know the title seems like I blog every day... truth be told... this is only my third post of the YEAR!
Ok, I've been busy... lost focus....been lazy.... really I forgot about my blog.
Today we are getting ready to run errands and I am prodding the girls to get dressed, beds made, trash picked up in their room, and it is almost noon. We may never get our errands run!
OK, I must confess, I am still in my robe. But getting my clothes on is the only thing I must do.
My goal these next few days is to ponder 2011 and pray about my goals for 2012.
Happy end of 2011!

March madness!

Can you believe that March is over... That means I am another year older, it is springish in Odessa, only 37 days of school left and there are only 9 months until Christmas! Sorry, just had to say it!
I know you thought I would have something to say about basketball... Well the only thing I know is that UCONN Beat Butler....
Soccer and track have begun....but for only one child. Keely has injured her Achilles tendon and is not able to run, therefore has had to drop out of soccer for at least one season. She is able to participate in the track meet, she can throw the javelin.
School is nearing an end. Allison's 5th grade trip is this weekend~! I can't believe I am a parent of a 5th grader... and yes I am still smarter! (she may not think so)
Bible Drill state competition will be next week (as well as the track meet, pray for me!!!!!) Allison has done very well. What a great thing... hiding God's Word in your heart!
I am ready for our busy April schedule! Soccer, Bible Drill, trips, birthdays, track, and I am sure there will be so much more.
Thank you Lord for the ability to do so much. May everything we say and do be to your glory and honor.... you are the giver of all things!

Well... since I am not the best blogger,.... I decided (by a suggestion of a friend) to take a new direction with my blog.. Heather's Attic is the name... and that is what my home business is named... so... why not post all of my creations! So... you will want to check in frequently! I am excited at this new twist. Check back soon!

Back to the Blog

Summer trips, preparing for school, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and teaching preschool, cleaning the house, water leaks and yard work... these are a few of the things that consume me....
Campaigning, and teaching, sunday school and Choir, cooking and friendships... these are a few of my favorite things....
They are very rewarding things in my life, but the computer has not been one of them!!!!

Not much is new around the Kirk House.... Between, dance, basketball, piano, and now cotillion for Allison... there is not much time for anything else.
