Tonight, while avoiding working and packing and all that goes into getting a family of 8 (okay, so 7 of us are actually travelling...) out the door, I went back and took a trip down memory lane. Do you ever do that? I love remembering the good, the bad and the indifferent of what life was as a child, teen, young adult....those things that eventually slip from my mind...Yeah, I've finally put some of them on paper...or, rather, digital paper! I LOVE seeing how God has worked in our lives over the years! I have now decided that I need to go back and add to those memory posts....because life goes on, and more memories are added every day!

A blog worth reading

Chaplain Brad Lewis posted an entry on his blog Training for Eternity. The article from July 6, 2009, One of Those Days, is well worth the read. Head on over there.

I cried. Jus' sayin'...

August has been INSANE...

Every month has its own brand of insanity..but I think August has been especially hard this year. Actually, this last week was the most crazy week of the whole long crazy month.

Our friend from church got home from a 7-month deployment.
We went to the homecoming...and those are always fun...DJ, flags, pompoms, pictures to color, spouses all dressed in their best, new babies seeing daddy for the first time, anxious girlfriends unsure of where they stand, older children running around not sure how to handle the pent-up emotions....and face painting!

Our girls partook of that particular fun part of the party....




Then, on Sunday, we hosted a BBQ at our house, so he could get to see all of his friends from was a blast...and a little bit overwhelming.

But we're GLAD to have him home!!!
