Taking a break!

We are "out", enjoying our summer, so I'm not taking much time to post on the blog right now. But, if you are interested in finding out what might be happening with this or this, feel free to click the links and browse away!

Now, if we could just get a little rain....

Summertime Fun!

As a few of you know, Alex, still my baby boy, left for his first "summer camp" experience on Sunday morning - the buses pulled out bright & early at 6:20AM! Two buses loaded with 60 kiddos left for Dry Gulch USA, a Christian camp based in Oklahoma, and run by Willie George Ministries. This is the 6th year our church has attended this camp, but the first time for about 2/3 of the group that left on Sunday. Today is Tuesday and I miss my little man so very much, but know he is probably having the time of his life :) Anyway, the children's pastors are keeping a blog of their daily goings-on, and are posting a few pictures to appease the parents. Tonight I found my son's picture on there...he's flying!!! OH.MY.GOSH!!!!

Another Zoo Post

This one doesn't come with any funny stories, just some cute pictures!

Yes, it was hot, but the kids aren't that sweaty! (gag)
We had just left the spray-ground area where they ran around getting wet :)

Getting ready for our train ride!

The toothless wonder ;)

Ian was very excited about riding the train!

Just happy to be out of the house!

Sweet brothers!

Mommy & her girl!

Boredom is the Mother of Invention!

This is my formal living room, without the furniture (that I sold at my garage sale 2 weekends ago!).

This would be the occupants of the tent that was constructed over the course of the day! A little light reading before bed, then off to the Land of Knod - hopefully!

*Update 9:35PM - an hour & a half later, they are finally asleep. Only had to threaten total destruction of the tent and sending them to their own beds one time to get silence - which is an improvement on our usual attempts at "sleep overs" :)

We have a foundation!

This is the driveway/garage side...no driveway yet, but the lip is there!

The front porch side entering into the front door; study to the right

Moving right along...

These plans were just laying on the ground in front of the house, so I snapped a picture so that you all could see what the front of the house will look like. Our home will be reversed with the garage on the left side.

These were taken on Sunday afternoon. They poured the foundation this morning, so I'm heading out there shortly to snap a few more pictures!!

First Pictures

No words are necessary....

Everything is still in God's hands...and Father, we trust you to work everything out to our benefit, according to your promises to us!!!

Ever feel like people just don't get it?

The House

Found out a few hours ago that construction (on the new house) has started...ahead of schedule! Pictures are coming since we'll be going out to see the progress tomorrow :)

So stinking excited!!!!
