Watching a car get stopped by a police officer right in front of our house.

Life this Summer

Today was a PERFECT spring like day. The weather was about 80 degrees, with a cool breeze, slightly cloudy, and just wonderful relaxing weather. Earlier this month, it has not been so, with almost 100 degree sticky weather every day. It was nice to be out in the yard and just relax for a little while today.

After coming back from Evan and Amanda's wedding in Jax, and a week in Alabama with the Hunters, life has been pretty crazy! Here are some of the things going on:

1) School: Josh has had three J-term classes back to back (this week break) and then two more coming up in the next three weeks. Whew. We don't see him much the weeks of the J-terms, only about 30 minutes to an hour each day. That is tough on me and the kiddos, but we are sticking out only a little bit more. Josh is on track to graduate this December with his master's degree and we couldn't be more proud of him!

2)Work: Josh has had some new things arise at work and has found out he will be working from home starting sometime this summer. (supposedly in a quiet house! how will that work? we are still trying to figure it out!!) At first he thought he was coming home the end of June, then July, now maybe August. August works for me. We just are hoping to have a new house by then to help with the noise issue.

3) House: We have had about 5-6 house showings (maybe more?) since we have been back. Some have gotten our hopes up, others slightly disturbing. (Like the people that came over 3 hours for their showing, while we were at church, with our house still messy, and then forgot to tell us the came, so I still cleaned and got out of the house later on in the day?!) Yeah. Interesting. Having our house on the market, is a testing of our faith and patience.

4)Church: slightly frustrating in some parts, not sure I want to share it all, but praying for wisdom and guidance!

5) VBS (July 10-15): Since I am the director of VBS at our church LOTS is falling on my shoulders. I am getting there, and enjoying my time doing it, but wishing I had more time and sanity away from the kids to help balance my need at church. And with Josh doing extra school this summer, it has made it a challenge. The Lord is seeing me through it somehow!

6) Kiddos: !! The kids have enjoyed the park, the zoo, splash parks, and playing - lots. They have boundless amounts of energy ALL the time. Especially Micah! He eats just as much as the "big kids" and just can't keep up with them enough. :)

That's all for now. Keep our family in your prayers, and all the crazy events of this summer!
