Earlier this year my grandfather passed away. He was the single most influential man in m y life until I met my husband. I loved him dearly. I called him Grandaddy, but his name was Bernarr Smith and everyone else always called him "Smitty". Original, I know. I say all this to tell you that whenever I would talk to him, be it on the phone or in person I would ask him how he was doing and he would almost always respond with, "I'm still kicking, Just not very high!" That's just how I have felt for the past few weeks!
In the past few weeks we have moved and gone to youth camp at Alto Frio Baptist Children's Camp among various other little things here and there. I'm pooped! You see I did not just drop my kiddos off at camp and say, "See ya!" I actually went, slept in bunk beds, braved 100 plus degree weather and all the drama that comes with 6-15 year old girls, and walked no less than 100 miles a day all around the camp (well, maybe not 100 miles..).
I wanted to share all this with you so that I could say I'm sorry I have not posed in the past month or so, and I'm sorry I have not finished my surprise project I had, at one point, been working on.
I AM going to finish it! I will get it up as ASAP! It's time to be done with it!
I will not be able to work on it today, though. Today is a VERY SPECIAL DAY! Today is my oldest daughter's 10th birthday! I have a cake (or pie) to bake! A meal to prepare! Celebrating to do!
I cant believe she is TEN already! Time goes so fast when you are having fun!
I did not have a digital camera when she was born and I don't have a scanner now to scan some of her baby pictures, but I do have these pictures from when she was about three.
And here she is now!
We are so proud of the young lady she is becoming and of how beautiful she is on the inside and out!!
We are so very blessed that God choose us to be her parents!
Today is the day we can officially begin moving in to our new house! We've hitched up the buggy and are all pactified! Well, maybe not all packed. I'm still working on that one. Along with dishes, laundry, vacuuming, end of year school stuff for the kids etc. Its been busy around here! I haven't had any time to work on the project I've been promising! I'll get to it as soon as I can!
We snapped a quick picture!
Just kidding! :)
Anyways, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy Wednesday!
I'll be our of pocket for a few days, but I'll be back soon. Hopefully with the project I've been working on and a few more!
Y'ALL COME BACK NOW YOU HERE!
(Sorry, I couldn't help it!)
