What can I say?

We are finally back home again~ I really enjoyed being in Michigan to help out Bryan's folks. Not sure what all I did, but it was great being with them! The kids and I played tons of games with Mom ( she loves games) and tried to help Dad, but he was feeling a whole lot better. Mom and I did get their dishwasher in from the van. Of course Dad had to show us what to do. We just laughed. He is feeling quite well, but I told him I had to do something or I would be on his daughters black list! He just smiled. I did ride the lawn tractor and mowed the church lawn which maybe took 10 minutes! Whoo! Hoo!! I felt better!
We were supposed to come back on Tuesday, but friends of ours, John and Martha Forsee came back early from their vacation to be with us~ so of course we stayed until Friday. We took them to Kokomo's, a place that has go cart, bumper boats, mini golf, laser tag. Then the next day, they spent the night and we took them swimming at an indoor pool~ it was empty except for a grandpa and grandma who were there for an hour. It was fun. The kids had a blast!! Martha and I just sat and talked! Oh we love our friends!!! My only wish that Bryan could have been there with us. We always have fun with the Forsee's!

Now we are home! It feels so good! We have just been hanging out and doing nothing! Today we did get the church cleaned and tomorrow the children are going to the zoo and spending the night with Sis. Durr! I am not sure what I will do!? Any advice? I am sure I can think of something!!

We are still waiting for our house to sell! I feel that Jesus is telling me to just wait on Him! God's clock does keep perfect timing~ I do know that!

My pics are not working~ I am not sure what happened. I did take some really cute pics of the kids, not sure what I can do. I will have to figure it out! *-*

Wow! Where has the summer gone? Everything is happening fast, well most everything! Here is a recap of what has been happening in our lives!

*Bryan's dad is doing extremely well! It has been 4 weeks since his surgery, and he faithfully followed the doctors advice as well as his therapist! (I am at their house for a visit right now)

*My girlfriend's came for a visit! Garilee and Sharmen and boy did we have fun! I laughed so much my throat hurt! We talked about the old days at GBS and after. It was a blast! It has been 14 years since we've all been together. I wouldn't trade them for anything!! (maybe a candy bar! JK)

*We have our house up on the market, which is not moving very fast. I resigned my position at GBS when God said it was time to go! I have no regrets, just peace! We plan on moving to Marion, OH at Bro. Brugger's church whenever our house sells! We have been going up there on some Sunday's and we have enjoyed every bit of it. Breanna said on Sunday, "I really like this church!" I have been amazed at how God has worked on not only our lives, but the children as well. They all were fine with our decision to move. They did not want to go back to the academy, not that there was anything wrong, but God worked on them! That is exciting! I don't think I could have moved or even left the school without the children in agreement!

So, that is what has been happening in our lives. I am trying to have patience and wait on God to sell our house in his perfect plan, and then give us a house in Marion. It is awlfully hard trying to find a house with at least 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Plus, we need a yard. I am looking at a house in the country, with 4 acres, but we will see! Please pray for us when you think about it. I do have some pics, but not sure how to do it on Dad's computer! Oh well. I'll have fun trying to figure it out!
