Mya telling Papa "How Rude!"







I can't believe that my house sits in total silence already tonight. I have so much to do. My house is a mess. The laundry is pilling up. The kids school work needs to be prepared for tomorrow..but the server is down and I can't access any of it. My husband is in Denver for the night at an auction. And everyone is asleeep. The perfect set up for...peace? Rest? time for me? a chance to get caught up? Unfortunately, temptation of various forms creeps at every door threatening to overtake me. Mostly trying to make me believe I am who I am not. So my friends, tonight, once I finish this blog, I am going to be accountable to all of you and go to bed. I am going to close my eyes, believe truth, choose to obey my Lord, and take a step in the right direction.

Please pray for me to be strong. Pray for me to desire with a never ending thirst the will and word of God. Please pray for me to be able to connect and begin to bond heart to heart with a group of other women who also seek to become intimate in their walk with Christ. My heart truly does want to be set free to be what God wants rather than wasting time being held down by all this junk!
In happier notes...we had a wonderful time camping this past weekend. Shawn's family is really so much fun to be with. I enjoy the time I have with them. I am so grateful for the way they love my children and reach out to them and spend time with them. Mya summed it all up when she stated: Mamaw happy see me. Papa happy see me. Jesus happy see me. The sad part of this trip was that it was probably our last time going camping as a whole family for a while. Shawn's sister Heather and her husband and little girl are going to be moving in October. We just have to cram as much family time into the next several weeks as week can!

In addition to our new journey of homeschooling, I have been babysitting a precious little guy the same age of Mya. He is pretty easy and fits in pretty well with our family. What's one more when your hands are full already, right?
Josh starts hockey tomorrow. He is so excited. It is going to be a great motivater for him for school. Already he has planned to be up early in the morning so he will have his work done in time to go to hockey. Shawn and I are both excited for him to begin this adventure...he has waited for so long and I think he will do wonderfully! I am not sure I am ready to become a "soccer mom" but we will see!
My mom is coming to visit on Sunday. We are all very excited. I can't wait for her to see how Mya has changed. She is coming for a week! I really didn't think I would be able to get her out here this soon...so I am very excited about showing her our new life.

Enjoy the pictures from over the weekend. I didn't take too many of them this time. And I haven't edited any of them since my software crashed on this computer and I am too lazy!
Have a wonderful night!
