Jack

I am a task-oriented person.  I rarely start anything unless I know I can finish it to the nth degree.  Walk into my house, and you will know the cleaning takes a hit from this approach; any cleaning that usually gets done is compliments of Bryan!  (Now, when I do clean, it is incredibly thorough and overdone.  But you would hardly notice because I can only cover a small area at a time with my OCD tendencies.)

Since Lee was born, I have become captive to the desire to create a home for my family that encourages peace and relaxation.  Unfortunately, I have become a hermit to do this, and have neglected that part of myself that needs others around - for accountability, laughter, discussion, prayer, etc.  The Lord has been reminding me lately not to let myself become too isolated, lest I become stagnant.

My best Atlanta friend, Christina, lives around the corner from me, and she has a little boy who is only eight days younger than Lee.  Jack and Lee have met each other only THREE TIMES since they were born!

Christina and I have devised a plan; we will exercise together one night a week for adult conversation, and get our little boys together at least once a month for a play date.  They are both so cute, and Christina's older boy, James, is winning my heart more each time I see him!  Check him out on the video reminding the little ones to share:
