Easter Sunday 2011

Wow, would you look at us! This a very different picture than I thought this family would ever be able to take. Brian even has his Bible in his hand. Thank you father for your grace and power to bring families back together.

Life Changes

Life can change in the blink of an eye. Some of you have experienced that. Whether it's a car accident, death of a loved one. Sometimes even the worst of situations can end with the most beautiful ending.

I had been praying for awhile now that God would touch my husbands heart and make him see what he was doing to his family. Now, don't get me wrong, he is not abusive in anyway, he just wasn't there for us like he should be.    One night God answered my prayers by really injuring my husband. Fortunatly this injuries were not life threatning and he will heal. But it was enough for him to wake up and realize that is was going down the wrong road and his kids and wife were suffering.

My faith in Jesus as grown so deeply during this, my words can't express. All I can keep saying is "Thank you Father" over and over.

Blowing Rock Family Vacation

We never made reservations for the beach, and couldn't decide on what we really wanted to do this year. So when it was time to go and do SOMETHING, we decided to head for the mountains. It seemed like a refreshing get-away. It's been so hot this year.
This is Grandfather Mountain. It's beautiful and 1500 feet above sea level. It makes you want to pack your backpack and set out on a treck aross the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We stopped at Linville Caves. The kids loved it. Although I think Tyler had more fun throwing rocks in the stream than going into the caves.
Blind fish. They are fresh water trout and live in the dark. And I mean dark. You can't see your hand infront of your face. Very Cool!
It was one of the best vacations we have ever taken.

Racecar Driver

It's this the most handsome fellow you've every seen?

I’m So Proud

I took T to school again this morning. We did things a little differently , like switched his booster seat to the other side, so he could get out easier in the drop off line. I could tell he was nervous on the way to school, but he said he was just listening to the music. This time I got to watch him as he walked in, and I could tell he was scared; he started to walk real fast. I don't think he saw anybody he knew so that made him a bit more scared. He has never been without me like that. Alone, without a familiar face. I cried. I love that little boy like nothing else and it's as hard on me to watch him grow in this and let go, as it is for him to learn to be a bit more independent. I'm proud of him, because it is something that he is not worried about and he knows he can do it. I'm watching my little boy grow up and it's a wonderful experience, but I don't want him to get bigger and loose this innocence.

I also know that next week, walking inside from the drop off line will be second nature and he will be a little more confident.

Car Line

BooHooo, BoooooHoooo! I just dropped my baby off in car line for the first time. AAAhhhhh, booohooo. I knew he was nervous, and I was too a little bit. But I never thought that I would cry. He did great, His teacher was standing right there, Jesus was with us this morning.

They told us in the parent orientation that this year we would see them become more and more independent, and this is the first step. I'm so proud. My little baby is growing up.
