This is what happens when you take one tired little boy, let him swim with his cousins all afternoon, and then he hits his sister...........................a little time to think about being mean. Such torture when sister and cousins are all in the water having fun. I love his droopy head...he looks so sad and lonely. I guess he learned because he went back in the water and had a great attitude the rest of the day.

We decided to have a School's Over, Summer's Here party this year....today was the perfect day. We had 6 friends come over and we did a couple of crafts, jumped on the trampoline with the sprinkler on and ate snow cones. It was a blast. these are the best pictures of the bunch...darn harsh afternoon sunlight. SO MUCH FUN. Sydnie was so into making her box "perfect" that she almost forgot to just play......but she had a great time. That girls thrives on planning stuff, she will have to be an event planner when she gets older.
snow cones after jumping on the trampoline with the sprinkler on.
a little summer memories box for each girl to paint, decorate and take home to store all the stuff they collect this summer.
nothing like good friends and summertime.

to a woman that showed how to be wive's to our husbands, lived her life according to God's word and throughout her life showed grace and peace. This picture is from her memorial service yesterday.........where her husband, Billy Graham, called her a beautiful woman and assured us that she had a "great reception in heaven". Her life and example of faith will be remembered.

These two are about the hottest thing...their show is like watching a day in their lives.
So a group of us got to ride in a limo to the concert.......we stopped at Bridgeport to eat at Macaroni Grill. We finally hit the concert at 7:45, we were late, but we made it just in time for the real show. I went to the soul 2 soul tour 7 years ago with some friends....and that show was A-mazing! We had seats in the 6th row....you could see tim's chest hair...ha ha. This one was just as good...Seriously could they be any more sexy on stage together....Seriously good time last night...

so i have neglected my blog........and after the last entry should let you know that all is well. I spent all day in the er on monday, only to be sent home to let the process continue. They checked all my blood work and gave me an ultrasound and said that I was healthy, other than the miscarriage and that I would not be in danger of an infection..........so I have spent the last two days involved in school. I wanted to let Julanne know how grateful I am for her friendship and support....the girl spent all day in the er with me and even ate hospital food. Thanks so much. So now I am just waiting around......my hormones are still not settled down yet.....that will take some time. But other than that life is okay.

here we go again. I am off to the ER to confirm I don't have a tubal....even though they swore I didn't. I am ready to yank the whole blasted thing out of my body. At the very least I will probably have a DNC...at the most surgery again. HOLY CRAP...I literally am bawling my head off. I cannot go through this again. WHY???

I just watched this movie (http://www.foxfaithmovies.com/thelastsineater/), based on a beloved book by Francine Rivers. It was so good. I did not know what to expect, especially when you have such a brilliant writer's novel being adapted into a screenplay. But Michael Landon Jr. and Brian Bird did a fantastic job with this one. These men are one of the driving forces behind Fox's Films new Faith Films....they are adapting some amazing Christian fiction into wonderful movies. I watched the making of and was struck by a qoute from Brian Bird that I wanted to share.
"There is a string running right through the heart of all of us. Violin Strings and when you pluck them they reveberate in our lives. One of the big strings is forgiveness."
I loved how he put into words the "thing" you know, when you watch a movie or read a book and it sits with you. You think about it, wonder why it has affected you in such a way. That is the mark of a true craftsman....to pull at those strings.
