Wednesday, January 23, 2008 I haven't done a great job keeping up with my blog posting. It's definitely not because I haven't had time to get on the computer!!! It seems that's all I do these days. I prop myself up on my side of the bed (now known as my roost) and sit with the laptop and check my email 5,000 times at least. It's sad that at least 4,990 of those times I have no emails coming in. I'm trying my best to relax and let my knee heal but it's getting old real fast! I have found that I'm addicted to scrabble. My friend Lisa and I play several games of scrabble a day on Facebook. That's been fun and helped pass the time some. All that to say....I'll try to get better about posting and keeping all my friends up to date on the activities of the Bryant family. I'm still playing scrabble though! :)

We have been doing well. The girls are busy with school and Morgan with volleyball. She is doing great and seems to really be enjoying herself. She's made some new friends and loves her coaches. She is in a volleyball tournament this Saturday. I'll have to get some pictures of her to post. Morgan and Madyson both went skiing this past weekend with the youth from our church. They went to Boone, NC and skiied on Appalachian Mtn. It was their first time so we sent money for ski lessons. They say they both did pretty well. Morgan said she only fell a few times and Madyson said she fell some but finally decided if she just went straight that she would be fine. :) I'd hate to see her if there was a slight curve! Ashlyn got to stay home and spend quality time with mommy and daddy. She is a little stinker and I will say we have our hands full with her. She is a little angel when she's here alone but throw Morgan and Madyson into the picture and she thinks she has to be as mean as possible. She is really growing and in spite of her meanness she keeps us laughing pretty much daily. Yesterday she came home from school and said, "I'm not going to tell you about Jacob". Of course I asked "what about Jacob?". She said, "I like Jacob and I really want to marry him". I told her she better talk to her daddy about that and that she wouldn't live with me anymore if she got married. She said, "yes I will. Mommy...Jacob lives in our land". I said, "our land?" She said, "yes, he lives in Roebuck. The same land as us. I can marry him and still live with you". It cracked me up that she called Roebuck "our land"!!

Chad is doing well. He stays so busy with work and then doing extra side jobs for several different places. He's been enjoying getting up at 5:00 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to go play basketball with some guys and he continues to run on the days he doesn't play ball.

I am still enjoying teaching music and spanish at a preschool here in Spartanburg. I started back to work yesterday after staying home to recover from my knee surgery. It makes you feel so good when the kids tell you 50 times how much they missed you and that they're glad you're back. One little girl kept interrupting me to tell me she liked my shoes, or my shirt, or my hair......she pretty much named everything she could think of. Kids can really make you feel special.

We recently got to spend some time with my sister, Katie, who is a freshman at Anderson University. It was great to see her and see where she is living now. She is doing great in school and seems to be loving it there and loves the new friends she's made. I'll post some pics of our time with her.

I hope all of you are doing well!! Let us hear from you when you have the chance. Here are a few recent pics....

Great pictures. I also think changing the name of your blog to
Bryant5family, would be a great idea:-)
Hope you have a good weekend!

Love you, Joy
