Last day of summer and First Day of school 2009!

We have a PLETHORA of boys in our neighborhood. Garrett usually has a playmate, anytime-anyday. It's been such a blessing this summer. They love to ride their bikes to Hafer, swim in the "eight foot pool" and play super heros. I love them. EACH. AND. EVERY. ONE. because of the friend they've been to my son. Because of their love of the Father. Because they're gentle with Miss Mace and because they are dirty, sweaty, stinky, silly, burpin' boys. On the last day of summer we all walked to Hafer and played for hours. We had a ton of pizza left from Trip's surprise party the night before, so I had all the boys over for lunch. What a great day it was. Thank you Jesus for sunshine and neighbors- turned- into- friends that I never knew I'd be lucky enough to have.

These are our pictures of the first day of school. I can't believe it's gone so fast. Isn't that every mom's line? I read "The Kissing Hand" over breakfast. Nobody really wanted to listen but me, so I quit half way through(and no one really noticed either). Maybe next year when he's gone all day he'll appreciate it. he he

last chance museum trip

Now that we're nearing the end of summer, Garrett is holding me accountable to all of the day trips I've promised for the summer. The Sam Noble dinosaur museum being one. So, together- with a friend and her sweet girls, we journeyed to Norman and had a blast. It was a beautiful day for a picnic outside and a great time had by all. We lucked into the Discovery room and they had a little story with a clay making craft. Garrett made a 'raptor' and macy made a 'ladybug/butterfly/ball'. Tomorrow we're headed to the cabin to Meemers and Papa Bill's. boats, go carts, golf carts, chuck wagons, oh my!

I love the mystery of God's timing and puzzle in life. I'm stirred at this season in my life about something and although I think I know what it may stem from or be associated with, I know there are so many pieces of the puzzle that are being worked out that I need not know. I know someday, sometime, it will all come to fruition, but my theme for the year is "wait" so that's what I'm going to do. In the meantime, I'm working on each Fruit of the Spirit this summer, and it's been sensational! This week will be self-control. I'm always up for a challenge, I guess.
