I finally passed off my camera and asked someone to take my photo. I wanted to document my attendance. See kids. I really was at the same places you were.

A fun one

Here are my 3. We had a blast in the hallway.
They kids would run and jump through the air. Emaline accidently jumped on Parker. He took it well though.
Parker's leap.
One of my FAVORITE new photos of B. Yes B does have on Baby Legs. They sure help his legs since he is moving and shaking. Not sure all the family agrees with this fashion statement.
One morning Emaline woke up and wanted to be a cowgirl. I told her okay. All her jeans were dirty. So she came out wearing this: Capris (with beaded red white and blue hearts on the side) her pink boots, and her black and cream shirt. She even added a belt later.
Emaline took this today as we were about to upload these photos.
This week we had a large crowd at soccer. The fans with the longest drive....Bop and Sid.

This actually didn't go in, even though he had a huge lead. The ball it the goal pole and DID NOT go in! This didn't happen just once, but many times this game. Parker didn't notice though.

Hard Times

God uses rough times to stretch me to make me step out trusting him. Shaking the stuff I had made a foundation rather than him. I am thanking God for that shaking, but also gritting my teeth because I know God knows me and knows I don't like change! At first I was welcoming the changes! WHOOHOO! I knew it was coming. I had felt the spirit for weeks preparing me for it. On fire for God, trusting him more and more and found a new relationship with him. It was wonderful. The new has worn off. Now, I am missing my foundation. My old foundation. It was familiar, it was good, lots of people I loved were apart of it. I still feel the warmth of God, I know he is right beside me waiting for me to reach out my hand, AGAIN.

Do you have those times? Those times that you know are so good for you, but you miss what you had? And not that my 'had' was bad, it wasn't. I know that GOD holds so much more for me. A deeper place for the 2 of us to worship together. I look forward to see what is planned for Stacey and me.

Visiting churches is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I remember out of college doing it. Hated it. I remember after we got married we moved to Arlington and looked for a church home. Hated it. Then we moved to Corinth, that was the worst. I would actually ask Stacey if I could give alias' and fake phone numbers out. I know. That was bad. Here we are again. We aren't looking for a new church home, we are enjoying worshiping right now other places ( thanks to a friends suggestion), but the enjoying part of it is wearing on me. I like seeing the same faces every week, and I like the routine I was used to. The kids are being champs. Parker had a moment on Sunday though where we wanted to go see his friends. He is my child. Stacey talked to him, because I couldn't. I knew how he felt.

Thank you for letting me be real. I know I rambled. Sorry. Thank you God for the freedom we have, the relationship you offer to me, to everyone who wants it.

Have you been stretched today? Lately?

More Easter 2009

After the preschool Easter egg hunts, we came home and the kids took turn hiding the eggs in the backyard. This was the first round. Emaline walked in the back, and just...well, look under the slide. Parker came out and just died laughing!

Emaline hunting eggs inside due to the nasty weather we had.
This is how Bowden hunted eggs!
Instead of eggs, B made these bowls off treats for his friends in the nursery.
