A recap

Well, hello gorgeous!  I've been missing, I know.  It isn't a bad thing, though.  Closets have gotten cleaned out, 7 bags of goodies have been donated to someone raising money for adoption, wedding pictures are being edited, ballgames are constant, a friend was moving, and {healthy} chocolate muffins were begging to be made. 

I have decided that with three kids, the month of May just may be the most hectic month around.  With about seven ballgames a week, end of year parties, and last minute school trips, I am ready for summer.

bring it.

Are you ready for summer?  I can't wait to sleep in, swim it up, go on vacation, grill some delicious-ness, and perhaps become a shade darker than porcelain.

My birthday is in a couple of weeks and I am starting to get fired up about turning 29.

bring it.

Oh, my boys decided to name your baby boy, Erica.  The top names are (in no order...)  Fudge, Don, and Anderson.  I do hope you go with Fudge. 

Cade has been working on a state project.  It is huge....they make state floats, posters, write paragraphs, give presentations, offer food samples that the state may be known for, and on and on.  His state is Oregon and we are going to serve blackberries.  {please be in season.  please be in season.}

My baby is graduating next week.  Kindergarten, that is. {How again is that possible?  And while we are on the subject, how is it possible that the oldest is only a few inches shorter than me?}

I never knew motherhood would require so many tears.

Here is one little bread morsel from heaven...I was reading Isaiah 41:19 and it says, "I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree and the pine, and the box tree together." hmm, seven trees....well, you know by now that seven means somethng, too...

Now, you know I had to go and find out why those specific trees are mentioned, because I don't believe God just threw them out there for no good reason.  Every single one of them grow large and have extended branches that are great for shade.  They aren't there for fruit.  They are there for shade and shelter.

Perhaps it is comforting to know that while taking a journey through the wilderness, God is there (Jehovah Shammah:  He is THERE) planting trees of shelter and comfort.  Believe me, fruit is on its way to your barren soul, but in the meantime, spread yourself a quilt and choose to rest from the bleak harshness of life.

love you sweet thing.
