Summer is Really Over

Well, you know summer's really over when you take your daughter back to college. It was move in day and she was so excited. We are so hopeful for a great year and we know God made a way for her to go to A U.

So here's a picture of my three awesome kids this morning before I left to take her. One football player, that is thrilled to be having his picture taken, one amazing college student and one very sweet tennis player that is going to miss his big sis.
Levi has his first football game tonight and he is so ready. He is rough around the edges but he has a sweetness about him. Take that number he is wearing. It was my number when I played sports and I told him it has always remained my favorite number. He works hard to get that number ever year and when he came home this year with it he was so, look what I got. I was thrilled. It's the little things.

We had special dinner last night for sissy and we decorated the table with a painting she did this summer. She was so surprised. She has so many talents!!

Well, I guess I'm a big girl now because this year I didn't cry!! I think I'm just so excited for her.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!!

First Day of 8th Grade

Emm took this picture of Cory pitching. She also changed it to all black and white and only the ball has color. Very Cool!!

It's the big day and they are begging me not to take their picture!! Sorry , it's a tradition. Where does the time go? It can't be time for them to be in 8th grade !!

One more week and sissy is off to AU. We met her new room mate and her mother last night for dinner and they are just lovely Christian people. Her room mate is from California!! So please pray for her and her family. She won't be home till Christmas. And here I thought two hours was bad.

We had a great weekend hanging out with Cory's family. They have a memorial softball tournament for a young man that died. They raise money to keep a scholarship going in his name. What an amazing way for them to pay it forward. They feel so blessed and are so thankful for their son being healed . So we watched Cory and his brother play and a whole bunch of great softball teams. They had 30 teams for this tourney. It was just awesome. Hot, but awesome.
No music today just a thought...GOD IS FOR YOU!!!

Thank You

Wanted to thank you all for your prayers. My mom did great. I am going to take her some meals this morning and see how her night went.
This is our last weekend before school starts and it is action packed. I am so praying the boys have a great year this year. We moved here two years ago and they left a lot of great friends. They have adjusted pretty well here but I just want them to feel great before they enter high school next year. They are one of the youngest in their grade and they where a little bummed that everyone had a huge growing spell this summer but them. They did grow but some of these boys grew 6 inches. I assured them their time will come and it will probably be next summer. I can remember this time with Emm but it was about braces and getting a pimple. With the boys it's height, muscles, hair, cars, being a man. They are still saying girls are too much drama. I hope that continues!!

Movie Review

Well, it was girlfriend movie night last night and we saw the cutest movie. Julie and Julia . What a great movie to see with the girls. I laughed so hard and was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I think there were 9 of us that went and we all loved the movie. So grab some friends and go see this film.

My mom is having surgery tomorrow so if you would be kind enough to place her in your prayers I would so appreciate it.

It's school registration this week and I am working it. It is just amazing to see how much the kids have grown this summer. I can't get over it. My boys are in the big 8th grade hallway this year . I can't believe that one either. Let's remember to pray for all the teachers and kids out there.
Hope you are having a great week. It's stinkin hot here in Indiana!!

What a Week !

First of all I can't believe it's Saturday already. This week was crazy!! I worked full-time for my Dentist friend and when you're use to a flexible schedule it's rough to commit to regular hours. I did it and enjoyed it.
Emotions ran high this week because Emme's sweet ex Cory had his yearly cancer check. Two days worth. I know I've mentioned before that Cory is a cancer survivor but he is actually a two time survivor and he is only 20 years old. He has the best attitude and is just the sweetest guy. His mom and dad came up last weekend for a visit and we just enjoy this family so much. His mom kept me posted on how things were going and after the first day they determined that Cory needs to go on blood pressure meds. All the chemo he took requires it. He was very disappointed, he is so active and feels so good. Day two brought great news...Cory is cancer free!! We are going down to celebrate with him tomorrow. Praise God ! Even though he and Emm don't date anymore I know he and his family where brought into our lives for a reason.

Friday brought great news for Emm a new roommate from California and the housing she had hoped for. She is ready to start her new adventure.

Blessings to all!!
