Hiatus Ended

It has occurred to me that I'm missing out on documenting all sorts of memories and milestones. I have enjoyed the break from blogging and from chronicling our life, and to be honest, face book seemed to fill the need to keep family and friends informed and in touch. For a while, I considered stopping the blog permanently. But I decided against it, mainly because though I really enjoy face book and the instant connections it provides, it isn't as good at preserving our memories as a blog. So, the blog stays.

There are a lot of updates; lots has taken place in the six months since I last posted. Most notable, Drew graduated from high school on May 18, 2013. It's hard to believe our oldest is done...at least with this stage. He is all registered and enrolled for college classes in the fall. He plans to major in vocal performance. We had a fabulous celebration for him at our house, surrounded by family and friends.

Summer is in full swing around here. That means lazy afternoons, trips to the swimming pool, lots of time with friends and more time with Daddy. We have a couple of vacation trips planned with the kids. It's hard now, getting everyone together...getting teenagers to be happy and willing to take a road trip with us. It seems like they've always got other plans, their own lives, and all the obligations and commitments that come with it. We were able to buy a new 15 passenger van to fit our whole family on these trips, though hopefully we won't need one for too many more years. It'd be nice to downsize to a 12 passenger or even a large SUV eventually. And of course, one day, we'll be able to fit in just a mini van again.

I have some things planned for this blog...a re-do so to speak...the pictures and descriptions are old and out dated. So that's on the agenda..though it may be a bit before it happens. And I have a goal to post more frequently. Life is crazy and hectic, and if I don't, then I inevitably forget the fun little stories and happenings that occur so often and then just as quickly, get washed away and buried under the next thing, and the next. I have to record them, or they won't be preserved. They won't even be remembered.


Before I sign off for tonight, here is a memory I will treasure forever and am happy to share. Drew sang in the Senior Spotlight concert. Then, less than a week later, on the same stage, he received a scholarship from the M.U.S.I.C organization at his high school and won the music department's award for "Excellence in Vocal." I can't even describe how proud I am of him.

Thanks for the update!
Lifting up prayer!
Psalms 56:3-4, 13 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me...For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

These words are such a precious gift of comfort! Praying!
Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
