The month of June.

June is a crazy month for us.

This weekend is my birthday. The BIG 30 people. So to start the birthday week off right, I got a hair cut, to make me feel fresh, to make me feel well... not so 30. Well I decided to get bangs... now I am feeling all of 12 years old. SO... the birthday haircut might have not been such a good idea. I am waiting till day 3, new haircuts are always best on day 3.

This week is also our last week at Houston's First Baptist. Bitter sweet moment. Andy grew up at this church, so to him it is like home. I didn't grow up there but we have friends there, are music minister's came from the church where Andy and I went all through college and then some (First Irving).... which make it feel like home to me. But we are moving on to something great and we are super pumped about it. Beyond pumped really. I believe God has been preparing and working in our heart for this change. We are starting a CHURCH PLANT with our great friends, Amanda and Curtis Jones. The Jones' were also at First Irving and Houston's First and we are so excited to be on their team on such an incredible journey in serving God. You can read more about Bayou City Fellowship from Amanda's heart, here, here and here.

This month (next week) is also Whittaker's 2nd Birthday. He is having a construction party and it is going to be out of this world. Well maybe... I decided to cut back a little this year, not invite as many peeps and cut back on me being a over-doing party loving/throwing mom. He will never even know. These are his picture birthdays (will only remember because of pictures). I have thought about doing parties maybe every other year. Like having a family party one year and a friend party the next. But I love parties. SO... doubt that will happen.... pondering it though.

It is also mine and Andy's 5 year anniversary this month. It is absolutely crazy how fast five years have flown by. We are not doing anything big around our anni. because we are going to Seaside Florida a couple weeks later, which we are super pumped about. I am super excited to see Whitt at the beach and get some great family photo's. Love me so classic family pics. Happy Anniversary Month Hubs!!!!

In adoption news for the last week or so...
We officially have everything turned in for the foster to adopt business and are waiting patiently (kinda) for our homestudy. We also mailed our first payment and group of paperwork off to America World for our Ethiopia loves. We are super pumped for this journey that God has placed in our hearts!!!!!

In other Wetherell news....

We are heading to Dallas to watch Dallas Baptist University play in some fancy schmancy regionals. The hubs is really excited about this, so I thought I would write about it so, we could remember it years down the road. I guess it's kind of a big deal in the baseball world.

Whitt is talking up a storm... sometimes in never ending sentences. Which is always funny because he gives you a look and waits for a response even though I have no idea what he is actually saying. He has also been extra loving, which has been fun. He wants to be held a lot for some reason but I have loved it, except for when I am trying to cook dinner. He is definatly still a daddy's boy and loves the routine evening wrestling matches. He is still very much into everything trucks, cars, planes, helicopters and tractors.

Here are a few pics to spruce up and wrap up this novel of a post.
