So far this summer...

We've been to do lots of different things! :) Mallory was with us from May 30th -June 6th and June 11th-June 25th.

In that time the kids went to 2 different Vacation Bible Schools together - Saddle Ridge Ranch and Galactic Blast - at a local Baptist church and Methodist church respectively. We went to 2 days of High Seas Expedition at a local Lutheran church until the kids came down with Strep Throat (as did both me and Tracy).

We have been to Chattanooga/Lookout Mtn. in Tennessee. We went to Point Park and the Chattanooga Zoo. This trip was rather interesting because it was a spur of the moment, let's go somewhere and see what happens. Turns out that the weekend we picked, was Tennessee H.O.G.s weekend in Chattanooga. As in, Tennessee H.O.G. = Tennessee Harley Owners' Group. Biker week in Tennessee means it was packed - so we drove around and looked at a lot of things and planned what to do when we came back there an extended trip. :)

We went to a birthday party by the pool for Julia's "boyfriend", Holden where we saw several of Julia Grace's friends from the preschool at Oakland. We went to the Swim Center a few days for open swim time. We went to the pool in Tarah's neighborhood for a lunch/pool date with one my mom groups as Mallory says. :) We also started swimming lessons for Julia Grace at the Swim Center this past week and continue into next week.

We went to a wedding in Flat Rock, NC for cousin Jimmy and Melissa, where we saw a lot of our other Asheville family. We went to see Toy Story 3 in 3D (this is only the second time we've taken JG to the movies ever and paid - she's been to free movies). She's still a little stir crazy close to the end of movies sometimes even when they're new and cute. And we met Super Why and Wonder Red of Super Why! at KidSenses museum in Rutherfordton and had a nice dinner at Graziano's. The girls all managed to get some face time in with the UNC-TV guy at both the children's museum as well as the restaurant afterwards. He didn't make promises about whether they'd be on TV or not, but Mallory seems to think he'll put them on there.

I will admit - the only thing good about strep throat, is it left us at home to rest after all that. I think we all needed the rest, but maybe not at the expense of our poor throats! I got in some scrapbook time last night at my favorite scrappy spot and will be going back today for a Cricut class. Then I'm off for a little more crop time to finish some layouts and swaps at Angie's house after the class. I promise - this is my mommy R&R. Trust me!

Pictures to come later as I take them off the card this week - lots and lots of pictures! :)

SoCo makes me oh so HAPPY!

Something Corporate is officially back and this just totally makes my day, maybe even my year. I discovered them a few years ago just as they were taking a break much to my dismay. The only concert they had anywhere near here, was summer and I was pregnant.

So very happy about this! :) Enjoy their new and remixed stuff - new video out now too!

well. well.

Deep thoughts. Exhausted me. It's been a wild and crazy last few weeks. I won't kid you on that one. I had thought about not revisiting my blog at all, but then I thought why let a few get me down like that? So... I'm happy to have my blog and post my thoughts and family events here. I'm happy that I serve a loving God that I can petition for prayer and I am as happy to cast my cares upon Him as to I am to lift up others to Him. Through Christ I can do all things. To God be the glory, and you're not gonna get me down.

I am satisfied. God is good all the time and all the time, God is good. Prayer requests will still be posted on here. Funny stories still to come and photos of those two rotten girls that I love so much will grace my pages again soon.

In the meantime, bear with me. I decided to go back to school again back in January 2008 - it's been an off and on process and I'm trying to press on to the end. I'm taking the full amount of courses that I can at the moment and sometimes it's all I can do to find time to sleep after school, work and family time is met. Julia Grace is doing well and there's lots to tell you about Mallory too. Tracy had his wisdom teeth out this morning and he was in pain for a while, but he's finally fallen asleep. Pray for him to be on the mend quickly. I look forward to catching up with everyone out there. Everyone have a great week - it's 4 more days 'til Spring Break and I can't wait! Call me what you want, but I have made an itinerary for the week so I don't forget about all the cool things I want us to do together as a family.

Looking forward to catching up on here! More to come soon - Love you guys!
