It’s been a lot of campaigns here on A Daily Dose of Toni lately, and I am very blessed to have had them, I have many more to come, but I feel like I haven’t been able to share the recent happenings in our lives lately. Some good, some scary, some frustrating, so today I just wanted to share some updates with you all on the happenings in the Patton household. The hubs and I will go on our first out of the country trip together this year! I won a 4 day/3 night trip to the Domincan Republic! He didn’t believe me at first, it was so funny. I am super stoked to get to go away with him!
As you know last year, was my daughters first year of cheer. It was so much fun and she is such a little doll out there showing her spirit. We were gearing up for sign-ups this year, when her coach from last year reached out saying the team she would be on, would need a coach. Because I cheered a few years and loved it, and I am going to be at all the games, practices, and competitions anyways, I thought “Why not?”. So, sure enough, I volunteered. I am a little worried about my August-November months because I am sure to be busy as a bee. No matter, my daughter will remember this always and that’s worth the busy-ness. Oh, and she won the spelling contest in her class, so she is competing in the school spelling bee!
The middle dude, has been working really hard this year to get better at reading comprehension and we are so proud of him for doing just that. I love watching him when he meets another milestone. He also mentioned wanting to play baseball, after the signups, so that is a goal for next year. Soccer season is right around the corner for him, during the same time as my daughters cheer season.
My oldest is finishing 8th grade…wait, what??!!! He is heading to high school. As you can see, above, he is a soccer player, has been playing since he was 3. He is still going to try out for the soccer team when soccer season comes. However, he has joined the weighltifting and football team! So now I am a soccer, cheer and football mom. I tell ya, this kid is definitely my sports kid…he’s dabbled in them all. Oh, and he is going to ROTC, which means he has to do PE online…how did we never have online courses when I was growing up?
As for me, the blog front is going well, I got to go on my first cruise (which I’ll share all about next week) and in June am going to my first all-inclusive resort. I am so excited about where my blog is headed.
Our house has part of the roof blow off and the kids play room had a horrible leak so it’s a mess down there. All dry now, but no carpet, hole in roof & ceiling, just a mess. We are going to begin repairs on it, but that was quite the fiasco…I remember the storm day, having a breakdown then just singing “Praise Him In The Storm” because no matter what life is throwing my way, I know God is right there with me getting me through it.
We just found out my mom has breast cancer again…have I mentioned CANCER SUCKS! However, she beat it once and I have no doubt she will beat it again. This time it’s a little trickier because of the size, but I have faith and know all is going to be fine. We are believing that we are going to get a church building, in May! It’s going up for auction and my mom has been praying for this building! So, if you want to donate, please head here to find out how.
As you can see, it’s been a lot of ups and downs around these parts, but I take it all in stride and just trust God through the good and the bad. In the end, everything is in His hand, so trusting Him is super easy 🙂
What are some of the current happenings in your life?
