Lazy Summer Days

"Must be nice being a teacher. You get 3 months off every summer AND all holidays." I just love it when people say that. :) If you are a teacher, please laugh out loud as you read that statement and if you aren't a teacher ask someone who is why that is so funny to us. :)

Today is my first official "lazy" day and I am heading out the door in just a few to pick out tiles for a new backsplash and get things ready for new countertops & stove. Plus I have a little outside work to do today (roundup the encroaching woods, plant a few little things, weed beds, etc.) and have more laundry to wash that humanly possible. So I guess this could be considered a "lazy" day but just typical summer for most teachers. It's called playing CATCH-UP because the prior 40 weeks have been kinda busy! :)

I still have so much in my heart that I desire to share but just haven't found a way to do so yet. Please pray for me as I try to figure out how to best express our full story from beginning to now. So many days I feel like I am protecting Elizabeth Ann by keeping details and events to ourselves but I know that it could help so many families if we do decide to open up. Just keep us in your prayers friends.

I love this verse and it has given me peace over the past few weeks especially.

Psalm 91:4 - "He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection."

Love you all,
