Woo Hoo~

I'm am packed and Emily and I are headed to Falls Creek tomorrow morning. I still fell like God is teaching me something, so please pray for me and my focus! I am excited that I am going, but am still praying for a good week, and that Emily does well. I am excited about the bonding time between her and Kinley!!!

Update on Emily~ took her to Urgent Care, and the Dr said she is fine and no illness in sight. So he released us to go, still confused at why she has a fever. So long story short we are off to Falls Creek tomorrow and are very excited!!!!

Sending love to all of you and thank you for your prayers!!!

My heart is broken ~

My heart is hurting so bad for my sweet Emily. We are a little confused because she is running a fever but we don't know whats wrong. We thought maybe she had Hand Foot and Mouth but there is no sores, we are also wondering if its Strep Throat, but we cant see her throat (that's an impossible task... lol). She scared me on Friday ~ she had a seizure while shopping in the city. After a ride in the ambulance to Children's OU, she was diagnosed with Fibril Seizures (which is a seizure that happens when your fever spikes suddenly). So scary to watch, and I felt helpless but had help from the store we were at immediately and the ambulance was quick. So with a spiking fever and an ongoing temp since Friday ~ we are very unsure what is happening. We cant get into our Dr's until Monday, but I'm thinking about taking her to Urgent Care today when they open.
My heart is hurting for Falls Creek as well ~ Our Youth group leaves tomorrow for Falls Creek and I'm unsure if I will be attending. I feel like I'm being tested, but I'm not sure why I'm being tested. I want to pass this trial, but I feel so sad, confused, heart broken for Emily, and upset that I could miss Falls Creek with my girls, Youth Group and great Sponsors!!! Please pray for Emily and myself ~ for an open mind and heart to what God has in store for us this week!!! Thank you to everyone who knew and have been praying.

Summer Fun ~

David and I was able to go enjoy some time together yesterday evening, and I must say that it is so nice to be able to have our girls watch her and know that she is very well taken care of. And can I just shout out to God for my wonderful husband who loves his wife and family soooo much! He is a Godly husband who is respected, loved my many, loves Jesus and does not hide that!

David and I went to see Karate Kid ~ and we were very much surprised, they did a great job at a remake that was so popular. I will say that there were many things that made us think of and miss China. I'm not going to plug the movie any more, but I highly recommend it & if you see let me know what you thought!!!!

Now while we were gone, the girls surprised Emily with some summer fun!! One of my girls favorite thing to do is play on the trampoline with the water hose and water balloons! So they took Emily out and had some fun ~ see for yourself.....
Wow, that water is cold.....
Ok so I'm starting to like this.....
Yea ~ this is fun and what are these??
Oh, now I know ~ Surprise
I think I have had enough of this.....

Although the last picture looked like she was done and not enjoying it ~ she had a blast!!!! Thanks big sisters, that was awesome!

A special guest ~

We are having a visitor this week, JJ is coming to stay with us while his 2 brothers and mom go to camp together and his daddy works. JJ is coming some time today, and stay through Thursday/Friday. I hope to entertain him with things that boys like to do, its been awhile since Kaeleb was here when I would play with him. Although JJ is older than Kaeleb, I still want him to have a good time while he is here. So plans are to go see Toy Story 3, swim a lot, and find some other things..... Leave a comment if you have any inexpensive ideas of what we could do????? Have a great weekend!

Simply Exhausted ~ but soooo worth it!

Last night we went to see Chris Tomlin and Tobymac together in concert with you Youth group!!! It was an incredible concert, the first hour and a half was all worship by Chris and the second hour and a half was a party!!! When I say party I mean it ~ Tobymac put on a great party for the Lord. All in all the night was a wonderful time of worship, fellowship, and being surrounded by thousands of people just loving Jesus! We did miss a special someone ~ she knows who she is!!!!

Update on Emily, she goes to the Dr. next Friday for an update on her tubes and she will have her hearing rechecked. We know that being "almost" 2 and not speaking all of our English language that she will ignore us, but we still feel sometimes that she is not hearing the best. She does respond but not to everything she should be hearing. This appointment will answer all those questions though!!! On the other hand, she is doing wonderful, loving life, and playing, dancing, singing, eating, just being a kid who lives in the moment!!!!! :)

We are busy with summer activities and just taking it day by day! Some days we are wiped out, and other days we just want to be on the go! We never know what the day holds for us, but we embrace it! We are looking forward to Falls Creek in just a little over a week. We have about 18 students going, and 6 or 7 sponsors! Once again Connie is doing a fabulous job at organizing FC and being a awesome camp director!! The count down has started!!! That's what going on in our neck of the woods!!!

Sunday Worship

Lord ~
Please prepare my heart for worship this morning. Let me hear your words, apply them to my life, and live according to them everyday! I thank you for this beautiful day, and I will rejoice and be glad in it.


May you find the beauty in the day, and give thanks and glory to the one who created it!
