First Day of Summer Vacation

What a week! Today is the first day of summer vacation and my precious Emma was wide awake at 5:15. I am not kidding. Chad was getting ready to go run and told her to get herself in bed with me. After a few minutes she went back to sleep and is STILL asleep.

I have to admit I'm struggling a little with this particular summer. Chloe will start middle school in the fall and I am just not ready for that! I think I am living my LPM scripture for this two weeks..

Philippians 4:6 "Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."

While I'm excited for her and know that she will have an incredible experience, I'm just not ready to admit she's old enough for MIDDLE SCHOOL!!! (Big Sigh and change of subject.)

Go check out my friend Heather's answer to prayer. :) Avery Kate is a living breathing answer to prayer!! (If you go visit her blog, you have to scroll down and check out her brown and pink nursery...LOVE IT!)

I do want to thank you for praying for my Freedom's Call buddies. Our Bible Teacher Jill has been in the hospital with Pneumonia. She was released Monday about the time her husband was being admitted for blood clots in his lungs. Yes, she walked out of one room as he was being rolled into the room two doors down. This is just one of many things hitting our ministry right now. We are very aware of where this is coming from and covet your prayers. We are preparing for a weekend conference the end of June and it feels like we are being pressed on all sides. BUT...

We are thanking God for what He is going to do in the hearts of these ladies June 19 and 20. I can't wait to see what He does.

I'm off to Shred and finish up some housework my girls have plans the rest of the week. Our pool opens Thursday and they want to be IN IT RIGHT AT 9:00 WHEN IT OPENS FOR THE FIRST TIME. We'll see how long it lasts, its like 55 degrees here right now!!! That water is going to be too cold for me.
