Summer Plans

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

James and I made a list the other day of our summer plans. If I’m good, I’ll get it scrapbooked one of these days. I like to do that and see what sort of dreams and plans we have. It’s fun to look back at these lists. Summer 2010 Plans 1.Go to the water park […]

Lee’s Call

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Lee and his parole officer set up a call for 2 pm. James and I once again, hurried home so we’d be here when the phone rang. We sat around. I began to feel sick. James said he hoped Dad didn’t call so he could hear me get mad at someone on the phone. He […]

Another Call

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Last week, James thought about the things he wanted to tell his Dad when he called. All week he talked about what he’d say and he practiced a piece on the piano. The time for the call came and the phone didn’t ring. I felt sick. I second guessed myself for telling James he could […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Monday, June 28th, 2010

There’s nothing like a bunch of out of state company to derail my Tuesday posts. Sorry about that. Since I last posted, I’ve lost another 2 lbs. so my total is -36 lbs. Yeah! I’m still staying away from the Nutra Sweet and using stevia.  I found a great soda called Zevia that’s sweetened with […]

Works of God

Any blessings to share today? I am blessed in many ways. 1. James camp is completely provided for thanks to  loving friends and James’ hard work for the church scholarship. 2. God’s protecting us. I think of this every night as I go to bed. I’m thankful to know he watches over us and keeps […]

From Outside the Frame

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

A little late, but here are some great links I found recently. This one is from Kristen at We Are That Family—homemade ice cream recipes. MMMM! James and I just talked about making ice cream this summer. Lee and I got an ice cream maker for our wedding and have used it exactly one time! […]

Thank you!

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Thank you to each one of you who gave something or prayed about James’ camp fund. You are seriously amazing. I truly hated asking, but I didn’t want him to be disappointed. If I’m disappointed or things are tough for me or Lee oh well right?!  It’s hard to see the kiddos be let down […]

I waffled about posting this but I asked Lee and he said it was alright. James is going to Bible camp the week after 4th of July. It has long been promised to him to go and he’s been working hard for the scholarship the church gives to provide part of the fee. He’s also […]

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Please forgive me for not adding images to this post! I’m feeling a bit lazy this morning. I’ll put in Amazon links for you though. I’m reading Spoken from the Heart by Laura Bush. It’s a very pleasant interesting book–I got it free with my Swagbucks! Grace Based Parenting by Tim Kimmel. It’s really good! […]
