This week

This week....

My terrific trio....

has become my dynamic duo.

Adam and Tyler are here for a week at our church's Middle School Youth Camp and we are learning how to live without them...which means me taking out the garbage and unloading the dishwasher...myself...and for Mag and Aidan it means living in their favorite place...their imaginations....and missing their big brother...oh yeah, one less kid also means one less person to buffer the whole "getting sick of each other" thing which leads to the whole "let's bicker about every little thing possible" thing!

Today is Fathers Day and although we sent some cards via Tyler to surprise him this morning, we will be holding off on the FD festivities till they get back Wednesday....and although I will be stoked to have them back safe and sound, I realize God has a purpose got word today that 6 out of the 13 boys Adam has in his group have made decisions for Christ already! for them to be there....and it is bigger than my petty inconveniences or desires to have us all home together.

So until they return, we three will be doing everything possible to keep us preoccupied so that it doesn't seem like an ETERNITY till they get back! swimming, having slumber parties in the family room, eating our weight in Blueberry Cake Shipley's, Mexican food, and Jelly Belly's, perusing through Garage Sales, watching every American Girl movie known to man, playing Wii, having "homechurch" (did I mention Mag has picked up hand foot and mouth virus???), and enjoying the 95 degree weather we have here in TN!!!

Mag and Aidan are enjoying the pool in the backyard

Aidan more than Mag maybe :-) yes, I am aware that his suit is outgrown by about 3 years...he however, has not come to terms with this and is in denial...I pick my battles.

I am enjoying my patio...especially early in the morning with my coffee

And looking at my patio from my screened in porch during the hottest parts of the day..and the mosquito infested evenings!
And my beautiful Hibiscus my hubby bought me before he left....nope, I'm not missing him at all!

"And whatever I do, may it always bring glory to you"
