Just a little note to let everyone know that we are still alive. .
(I always worry about people when they stop blogging for a long time)
We are squishing all the goo out of life around here!
I have loved this little blogging habit of mine for nearly 3 years now!!
My heart isn't here right now.
I find myself on a quest. .
a quest for knowledge. .
a quest for healing. .
on a mission of spiritual growth!!
I am leading a bible study (for my first time ever) on raising responsive children. .
Our Sunday school class just started a Beth Moore study on the Book of James. .
In my commutes to Oklahoma, I am studying the book of Hebrews with James MacDonald.
And, I continue to help shepherd between 15-20 high school kids on Wednesday night. .
It's a fabulous ride. .and the changes in me are good. .
And for the moment. .
Those studies have taken the place of my blog in heart.
I won't be gone forever. .and may even be able to pen a few things weekly. .
The kids remain busy. .
Football season is winding down. .
as parents of a sophomore;
Jeremy and I find ourselves in the concession stand often helping the kids raise money for prom next year.
Basketball season will be a quieter one here. .
neither high school kid here is planning on playing. They will both report to their dad after school to help mechanic in the shop. .
which will be good. .
as Grant and his dad plan on putting the finishing touches on his 1950-something pickup. .
and Tristan has become (in the last 2 days) the proud owner of a little 1984 step side custom painted, new engined- new trannied pickup (that I was advised was a veeeerrrrryyy good ebay deal!) They'll both need to be working off some expenses in that shop!!
Devin and Cami are growing. .
and I have told Cam that if she doesn't stop growing, she is not far from NOT fitting on my lap! She insists that she will keep growing. .
If she does, I will have to have someone beat the boys off of her. .
the conversation from her daily is about her "boyfriend" (who doesn't know it) and about the little boys who want her to be their girlfriends. .
As I keep telling her she is too young for boyfriends. .
she keeps saying "I know". .
and I keep getting the vibe that she KNOWS. .
but she doesn't CARE!
Any of my gray hair that remains on my head after these boys are raised. .
will totally fall out when we get to her!!
with all that being said. .
I want everyone to know how much I have appreciated your sweet comments. .
both online and in real life. .
I hope you will come back every once in a while to check up on us. .
But most of all. .
No worries. .
we are alive. .
And now. .I'm headed to pack my bag for a trip to Oklahoma City tomorrow to watch. .
Check mark off my bucket list!!
Have a great weekend, friends!!
