Cell Phones

You know it is hard to imagine the time when cell phones weren't that accessible.  I remember driving all over the US and the only way to talk to someone or check in was to stop at a pay phone, or hotel phone.

Technology has sure grown in the last 10 years even.

For anyone out there who has verizon I would go and see about them getting me a better deal on my plan. I did and now I get to save money on it.  It seems that they won't save you the money unless you go in and ask for what the changes were that kicked in this past week.

I say this because now I am not sure what I would do without my cell phone.

Well he was able to leave today.  He was very happy when we got to the church, and the kids were glad to see him too.
Now my son is off on one of his big adventures for the summer.

hope he has fun.

Wed. To Do List

Get oldest ready for his church trip (yes they are still going)
     hopefully instead of going to Colorado Springs though they will plan something else
    Somehow I have to survive 10 days without him  (at least I can call him)

so he needs
   work clothes
   more clothes
   money for fun stuff
and lots more stuff   :)

I hope he has fun, and it is fun watching him grow and mature.  I really see God's hand in his life and hope that he continues to follow the path laid before him.


Well today would be perfect, except it is hard to breath outside.
Reason it would be perfect is for once the wind is not blowing right now, temp is only around 80*.
    All the fires in the area (around the state, and the some of the ones around us) has the area full of smoke.

I really wish it would rain soon, the area is dry and we need all the help we can get.
     95+ temps, winds blowing sometimes up to 40mph.  Our poor fire fighters are working hard just not getting  very far.

Sending a prayer out to all those who are working so hard to control the fires and keep everyone safe.

   As I get ready to leave for my daughters party today, I think about all the family that surrounds us either physically or mentally (if they live far away).  
   One of the things I hope my kids get out of being homeschooled is how important family really is.  It seems that we are lost without them, whether we agree with what they do or not.
   Everyone needs to stand by family (either biological, married into, or just really close friends) and we as a people need to stop being so judgmental of our family.  They need a place to feel safe (our houses), they need a place to relax and know that they are loved and respected.

I hope that everyone remembers this and treats others the way they should during the trying times.

family  what a great word that is.

Summer Equinox

Can you believe that today is the first day of summer?? I know I am having a hard time with that.

Weather here today was nice, not too hot.
Little bug is off playing with friends (getting late for dinner, gonna have to call her).
Big Brother is off in his room planing what he is going to get her for b-day party.

Oh I hear Growler outside (she must be home now)
I love my dogs they tell me so much as to what is going on outside with her.

Join me today as I wish a very Happy Birthday to my little girl.
Today she turns 9 years old.

happy birthday sweat heart, you are growing much too fast.

I feel very privileged to be able to watch you grow and become the young lady that Christ has in mind for you.

Love you
Mom and Dad

leader training

    Well I don't really think my oldest was ready for the training that he got (OJT)  but I think he will survive it just fine.   His leader has left for the VBS rest of the week, so it is him and another teen taking the group (him in the lead).  So yes (on job training) at work. ha ha ha

    Going back in later tonight for the parent show, should be fun.

first week of June

Well summer is here now.  Temps are getting up around 80* or more, it has been raining at least sprinkling almost everyday now.

VBS starts tomorrow (so I get to run around and get things done by myself for a while)

enjoy your week and may your flowers start to bloom (mine are not yet I can't seem to keep Growler out of the flower bed).
