We had a full weekend!
Kiahna turned eleven on Saturday! She looks so forward to her birthday all year, talking about what kind of cake she wants and what presents she wants! Then when it comes she gets too overwhelmed if we make it too big of a deal. So, I had a some cousins & neighbors over for a couple hours and we ate some cake & all was well with her little world.
As we prepared to take Leah to college this past weekend, she asked if we could go out to eat at Zestos for a treat, we did... Kiahna was already in bed, so I pulled her out of bed & she stayed in the van while we enjoyed a cool evening of ice-cream!
Love our new family look.
My parents have been my rock through my whole life, but especially in the past ten years I have been a single parent. They helped move both of my boys in to college when the time came. This time, they stayed back & let Jim help & we visited them on our way to college.
Leah has adopted one of grandpa's old hats & wears it everywhere. The bond we have with them because of the events that happened to us is so much stronger than it would have been without all the hard years.
Leah & Jim putting together some shelving for Leah's room. It was so good to have him there with us. So good to see the two of them working together. They are so alike. I love to be around them both.
And then we left her there. It was strange. I didn't cry. It has been harder the past couple days with her not home at all. She brings so much laughter to our house.
But, she is only an hour or less away, and we know we will see her often. Happy that she is happy.
Everything with Jim & I is going well. Just feeling like we are in limbo waiting for God's time-table to show us what to do next. It's so exciting to watch God move & let Him be in control. Exciting. Hard & challenging.
Still needing much prayers as we walk this out according to God's plans.
In His Grip,
