Spring Happenings

The Griffith family has been busy this spring. Alex's company has now opened yet another location in Little Rock, AR. This covers central, south, and northeast Arkansas. Needless to say, he has been gone ALOT lately. I've gotten very comfortable (with the help of my new alarm system) staying alone for weeks at a time, but I sure do miss him!

I finished my first semester of grad school (with a 4.0 I might add) and couldn't be happier about it! I will now be transferring over to Christian Brothers University to finish up my MAT. I'm taking 13 hours this summer, so I could use all the prayers I can get! :)

This past weekend I went home to Kennett for several things. I judged twirling try-outs (which I absolutely love doing) on Saturday morning, had a wedding on Saturday evening, had several high school friends in town, and celebrated Mother's Day with the best mother around on Sunday! It was a wonderful, fast, relaxing weekend in Kennett. One thing is for certain: I will never grow tired of going home for (short) visits. I love seeing my family, friends, and town so much!

I have also been doing some serious babysitting lately. I love babysitting, and I love it even more when Alex goes with me! The kids love him so much and get sad when he is not able to come with me (maybe because I have to be the mean babysitter and he's the super hero!?) Anyway, I'm saving up for several little trips this summer and have found babysitting seriously helps the bank account! Plus, I get to spend time with the kids I love.

I am wrapping up my first year of teaching and get sad just thinking about those sweet boys moving to Senior Kindergarten next year! Gosh, I've been so spoiled to such a wonderful first year. I have so much to look forward to next year.

Have a great week!

Easter Weekend

This year, we did something a little different for Easter. My family decided to take a mini-vacation to New Orleans. I had Friday and Monday off from work, we had not taken a trip in a long time, and we love any excuse to get out of town! :) We couldn't have asked for better weather, and we did lots of fun things!
One thing is for sure: my family is one of a kind! No other family could even begin to come close to the Privett/Griffith clan. Love these folks.

I cherish every minute I get to spend with my family. We had a wonderful Easter trip and I can't wait to begin planning the next one!
