Hunter and his friend
found the perfect
place to wrestle!
But maybe we should
tie it down next time! Lol

Wednesday, November 2, 2011


Yes, I noticed
I have been very..preoccupied?
Ok, ok, just plain slow!!!
We started the school year off right.. 
With a fun day!

 Everyone agreed it was the most
fun they've had during the 
first week of school,
including me! 
That slide was great 
especially when it 
started to rain and we had
to send the children inside!  :D
And then ball season started..
                   Caleb                         Josiah^

they don't play as much as the 
bigger boys, but they love it. 
Then there's volleyball
 Paige getting a good set 
 "We've got our shoes tied tight
and we're ready to fight
go red, black, and white
goooooo EAGLES!!!!!!"
 It has been a pretty busy year
with seven children 
in seven different grades!
But we're making some exciting
changes soon..which I'll blog about!

Being A Mom

Carrying within
A growing babe
Completely dependent
On just one soul

Going thru immense pain,
Like nothing before
Then forgetting it all
When the bundle in a blanket
is handed over...

Holding a little one
Till your arms ache
But having no desire
to put them down

Loving their touch
With all the dirt
Slobber and tears
Knowing it will wash
Not caring if it doesn't

Joy with their every step
Jump and ride
Scared they will get hurt
Cheering anyway
Loving their spirit

Having your heart
Outside of your body
not being able to control it
enjoying every second
As if it were the last

Loving immensely
Giving entirely
Sacrificing unconditionally
Dreaming infinitely
Joy unspeakable

Boaz 4th birthday

Today would have been Boaz' 4th birthday.
I should be running around, 
buying cute toys, 
deciding what to put on his cake, 
taking birthday pictures, 
blowing up balloons, stringing streamers.
Then again, I've missed a lot lately:
Washing dirty little jeans
Tying cute little shoes
Kissing scrapes
Hugs good night
Teary eyes
"I love you my little man"
Watching him & Stonewall be best buds
Holding his hand
Complaining cause he's growing too much
Thankfully I serve a great God!
So even though I miss my Boaz...
I know he's running around on the streets of gold...talking to all the saints of God...visiting all the Bible greats...and he'll be there when we get there, not exactly waiting...I can't imagine anyone in Heaven waiting for anything..but maybe expecting! 
I am ever thankful for the promises of God!

We got to spend a few days
listening to the surf
breathing in the salt air
playing in the pool
volleyball in the sand
 a little shopping
a few great sunsets
making memories

Christmas - A late post

We've been busy
so here I am,
just getting around to a 
Christmas post
* * * * * * * * * * * *
this is the face you want
to see as they open gifts 
a helicopter that flies
 cars that run on the ceiling and walls
an itunes card :)
 nothing is complete without a gun
 I like that look!!
 3D  shirts! Complete with glasses!
* * * * * 
just a few Texas things for yours truly :)

 and a few things from friends
who have been in my shoes
and walked in places I have
thank you... :)
I am definitely trying 
that jam on ice cream!!!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
We had a good Christmas vacation,
though it was very busy!
We got the chance to 
meet new friends and visit old ones!
