My life has been a complete whirl wind since we got back home from vacation. Every day, I think, “Today will be the day I blog about our trip and catch up with everyone.” So far, as most of you know, it hasn’t happened. We got in Wednesday evening and Drew had to start school back, at ORU, on Thursday morning. I had two weeks worth of hugs to catch up on with Ella, school to prepare for since we needed to start this week, a MOUNTAIN of laundry, no food in the house, about 1700 pictures to upload and go through (which isn’t complete), beach withdrawals to deal with, also not complete, LOL, and exercising to catch up on, not even started yet!!
We did start school yesterday!! We had a great first day. The boys are in 6th grade. I can’t believe that. No more elementary school for me, kind of sad, but we are on to bigger and better things.
Adam and Isaac being so studious!! That lasted about long enough for me to take the picture, then back to our silly reality!!
We also celebrated Lindsey’s birthday!! I can not believe my oldest baby is 26, WOW!! Time flies. I’ve been a mom a really long time. I remember when the doctor handed her to me for the very first time, I was so excited, I already loved her so much, she completely stole my heart!! You know looking back, I was so sure of myself but now I see how truly clueless I really was. It is amazing what the Lord sees in you and knows you are capable of. He gave me this amazing gift and then He began teaching ME!! She has truly grown into a beautiful young lady, wife, and mom. The JOY, not only is she my wonderful daughter, she is my friend!!
Since we started school and I also had Ella all day, she decided we would go to dinner, so Olive Garden was her pick. It was yummy! She even ordered dessert with a promise of a cake, from me, this weekend, which gives us all something yummy to look forward to!!
Don’t forget tomorrow is Why I Count it all Joy Wednesday!! I hope you will all join me and spread some JOY!! Just grab my button, make your JOY list, and come back and link up.
