Mini Update

School started last week. Makenzie is now an official Junior Higher. She looked pretty darn cute in her school uniform...cute, and so grown up. (I don't have the pics on my laptop, but will try to post them soon). Caleb loves first grade, except the "getting up early" part. Gonna be a long year for that one.

Scott has been running/riding lately and has dropped 28lbs so far. He is in great shape and is feeling so good. He signed us up to do a duathlon together in a couple of weeks. It consists of a 3.1 mile run, a 11 mile bike ride, and another 3.1 mile run. I was going to do both legs of running, but Scott wants to run the first one and then do the bike. That leaves me to run the last 3.1. Oh boy!

Our family has been going through a very hard time of trial right now. I am not able to share particulars, but whatever happens is going to change our family dynamic forever. It has been a very difficult summer, and things are still not even close to being over. Prayer for our family would be much appreciated. I can say, however, that God is good. He is near to the broken-hearted. Things may not turn out how we hope they will, but God is in control.

With both kids going to school all day now, I have been tossing around the idea of finding a part-time job. I love the idea of getting out and interacting with other adults, and having a little extra money never hurts either. So, I got a job at a tanning salon less than a mile down the road from my house. I am so looking forward to it!

Awana is getting ready to start in a couple of weeks. This year I am the Cubbie director. Am I freaked out?? Y-E-S!!! This is such a new and big step for me. If any of you are interested in helping with the 3 and 4 yr olds, let me know. I could sure use some extra hands.

I'm sure there is so much more I can blog about from the summer, but I am tired and hungry.

Thank you, Lord, for giving me this song at this moment in my life. I WILL take hold of You.

This is how I feel right now. I feel like no matter how hard I kick I am still sinking to the bottom. "This, too, shall pass"...I know, I know. Just wish it was passing faster, and with less pain.
