My hubby grilled italian marinated chicken tenderloins, and we had Grammy's crock pot, yes crock pot, macaroni. Of course there was more, but remember we're hitting the highlights!
Tomorrow marks the start of a new school year for us. Most of my girls are excited. Bug, on the other hand, is having apprehensions. In her words after orientation (I'll edit out the blubbering and running nose), "It's just all so different, and she's not there. Operative word:she. Bug's teacher last year became so much more than a teacher. She loved her so much, and her son was Bug's best friend. They recently moved away, and I don't think the reality of it fully hit Bug until she walked into that room the other night.
I must confess it's been hard for me too. Her teacher was my co-worker and had become one of my closest friends. I miss her terribly.
I'm a bit nervous for tomorrow too as I've been moved to an older age group. I'm excited and have had great fun getting my classroom ready, but I'm nervous about that "first day of school", hoping I will remember which kids go with which parents in car line! We may have to break out the name tags in the morning! :)

This was shortly after it happened. If you look closely, the image caught the raindrops falling. It was dark, so that explains the photo lighting. Thankfully, Pa had just finshed up and headed out of there for the barn before the blow over! J/K That's one shower you wouldn't want!

Please continue to pray for mudpiestodragonflies as her brother passed over the weekend. He leaves behind a wife and 3 girls who will need our prayers (not to mention an awesome sister). This stormy sea can sometimes toss us to and fro, making us feel our sails can stand no more. But praise God in knowing there is a captain, His Name Jesus, in whom even the winds obey...He will guide us through.
I know the Master of the wind. I know the Maker of the rain. He can can calm the storms, make the sun rise again. Yes, I know the Master of the Wind...

Today I wanted to pop in for a prayer request from mudpiestodragonflies. Her brother collapsed and is in ICU. Please pray for my Judy and her sweet, sweet family during this time. I pray that this time will bring them all closer to Christ, and closer to one another, and that somehow through this experience that the name of God might be Glorified.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
We love you Judy!

This summer has been so very busy for my family. Earlier in June, we enjoyed a family trip to the beach (thanks, Papaw!)
