And just like that….blink of the eye, Jacob (19th) and Zaria (29th) are 11 years old.
Yes! It’s finally here! Swimming, Parks, Baseball, Weddings….etc! Bring on the SUMMER TIME!
Every Moment is a gift.
Sooooo, I have to confess, that my nearly 42 year old body had to be encouraged into leading this adventure…but was blessed abundantly that it went off ‘without a hitch’. I planned a trek to the Denver Mint and Capitol building for a group of 19 homeschool kids. Two other mamas joined me, and we bravely adventured on uncharted waters!
First time sleep-overs for a 5:00am departure time…
We made it down to the ‘free ticket’ window in the allotted one hour (7-8am) they are open time frame for a 9:30 tour of the mint! Praise God. Just for fun sometime, you should read the website that tells you how to tour the mint…no advance tickets, only same day…no on-line booking…no guarentee of a tour time….many hoops to jump through…But I’m so thankful that Our great God takes note of the fervent prayers of his girl.
Even down to the blessing of early morning parking/driving ease, and an open at 7:30am capitol building so we could use the potties.
We got to explore the capital building while the janitors were still spiffing up the place!!
And getting another photo of our ‘three amigos’ was priceless.
I’m blessed beyond measure to Jesus walk adventure with my sisters.
Sweet boy, I pray you’ll continue to grow up to face your giants with confidence. We are SO proud of who GOD made you to be. Our family is so blessed to have you.
We had a great trip to California this past spring break week! Our days with niece Liz included going to a movie, playing at the park and a beach with seals!
Then three days at LEGOLAND and a ‘beach house’ did not disapoint….at all…..spoiled rotten…
The last days were spent with Birth (honorary) Aunt Shavon, with baby on the way, what a blessing family is.
Yep….pretty great spot to be for a vacation. Time is such a gift. Just one ‘bummer’ in that, our car’s alternator decided to quit, and we spent 4 hours in a Honda dealership and $900 on the way home….sad, but SO THANKFUL for the: couldn’t have been better spot it died, the day it did, and the opportunity it gave us to ‘live joyful in all circumstances’ in front of our kids. God is in complete control, his divine hand in our lives is so powerfully evident. We worship Him with every breath we breath, now and forever in eternity because of JESUS.
This was from a few weeks ago…. Thought you might like to see a stroll on a Sunday outside of our church in Frisco…what a beautiful place.
Yep, we are at least a month away from thinking about spring/summer up here….Hooray for moisture! We’ll share it with all you ‘folks down the hill’!
Thanks for the tractor and golf cart rides Uncle Kevin and Pa!
Dad wears big shoes!
My youngest nefew, Eli, restored this truck with his Papa….SO COOL. Our kids all want to ‘build their own cars’ now :)
This is my friend, Gary. He gave me roses that he walked to the store and bought. What a blessing to share lunch with he and his visiting family this past Sunday. He lets me come and clean his house/talk his ear off once a month, and it makes my day.
Silly kids, make my day. Thanks God, for LIFE!!
The sun rose like a flaming rainbow the day I got to breakfast with my home school co-op mamas!
Yes….reminding myself here…even laundry. Laundry is beautiful. Philippians 4:6-10
We Three Spies
Praising God from whom all blessings flow! Glad for the break, glad to be ‘back to school’! All things in their times and seasons….
Thinking of people hibernating could sound a bit odd…but really, it was 7 degrees here a few mornings ago. Nothing can function under that type of cold! Of course, it warmed up, the sun came out, as it usually does, and I functioned.
Just please know that it has set in. Fall is officially over, and if you don’t hear from me for a few months…just pray, and know I (most likely) have a hot drink in hand, cozy pajama pants on, and am hibernating. See you in the spring!
….Oh, yea, I have a husband, and children…well, at least from the hours of 9pm-6am…hibernating ;)
This stained glass panel was hand made by the missionary pastor of our church in the 1980’s, and it graced the front doors of R.M.B.C. from that time till the year 2015. Now we gift its beauty to all who pass by our home, or enter therein! I love everything about it, and everyone it reminds me of - and may the whole world know the everlasting love of JESUS!
We SO appreciate fun nights with our JESUS family!
