Many thoughts today...I love summer, the casual relaxed feeling...time to do new things, finish things, waking up late, having time to visit without a set schedule, the POOL. Our town pool is up and going finally after an overhaul and we are enjoying it. I'll highlight several of our projects and accomplishments this week.

Silas and I set a summer goal to ride our bicycles to his ball field, I have not idea how far it is... and this morning we did it! He is collecting Indiana Jones paraphernalia. We have yet to see the new movie but might soon. We have heard it's not worth seeing in the theatre. Any reviews?

Cady's goal, (today) is to open her own salon, here is the sign she posted on her door. She's had a few clients and she is anxiously awaiting Charis' hair to grow.

Charis so far is the more traveled one having made it last week to southern California. She and I are still attached and she proved to be quite the traveler switching time zones well and enjoying the plane ride. She's a 3rd child , go with the flow is her middle name.....she has accomplished crawling and likes the pool.

Cody has perfected his diesel refinery and accomplished making his own fuel. He is also preparing our family for the end of the posperous age, making sure we can survive a total economic collapse that he is convinced we as a nation are headed for.

This next part I have written 3 times and lost, I have a feeling someone doesn't want it published.....

Speaking of the breakdown of the nation , I feel it's directly linked to the breakdown of the family. History backs that up, great civilizations have fallen because of their immorality. what shocks me is the abundance of it among believers. Oh that our families be protected from the homosexual agenda, from the onslaught of porn and the abuse of alcohol and drugs (prescription included) I could go on but I have written this 3 times.....We are hearing save the earth everywhere, lets save the nation and save the family. So what are we to do? Teach our children. More now than ever they need to know God's truth. We must not give law with out grace that is legalism, not only is it unattractive it's not Christlike. Grace without discipline is the unstable man....It's Grace and Wisdom, Charis Sophia (greek meanings). So at all costs save the family and follow Jesus!

Oh I almost forgot my kicks this summer- tie dye, chicken salad and tea. Got any suggestions or recipes?

Kids are at Granny & Poppy's

What a blessing my parents are to me. I hope I repay them well for all they have done for me. An ride to Tulsa opened up and we let the kids go to spend several days with my parents. When I checked in today Silas reported they get to do whatever they want and they had gone to McDonalds twice already and they haven't been there 24 hours yet. Charis and I are gearing up for a mission trip next week to San Diego with some college students, catching up on the to-do list here and spending some quality time. I'd like to scrapbook some. My sis-in-law and I did a garage sale yesterday, I asked God for $200 to take on my trip, I think I had that much and a little more, he knows what I need I just have to trust him. God is so good to all of us. Cody and I sat and ate in our home last night take out after Charis went to bed- he said he felt like Larry and Jan (our neighbors) who are recently retired (at 61!) It was very pleasant. We rarely eat alone together and especially not in our own home. We are going to a wedding tonight (with a dancing reception, I love those) so I better go. I am leaving you a pic of charis and her thoughts (read the bib)...............

Well this morning I called Dr. Atchley's office to schedule an appointment for Cadence. After a health screening at school showed a problem we waited till school was out to make the apt. They got me in at 11am and by 3 we had glasses on my little girl. She looks smart huh! She loves them, please don't spoil it. I am still in shock.

FAlls Creek- 12 kids decide to follow Christ!

I loved camp as a kid. I attended New Life Camp on Durant Rd as a 3rd, 4th and 5th grader and loved it all, from mastering the zip line at the lake to finding a boyfriend to tetherball and jammed fingers. I have directed and sponsored camp more times than I can count... and still love it. But never have I brought a baby and never have I only had 4 girls to council. It was great. 2 decided to follow Christ and I introduced them to the great adventure....One was already a follower and the other isn't ready, but knows the word and I feel God is working on her. I am posting a pic of us at the Devil's Bathtub waterfall that we hike to. We took 17 boys, 10 of them made decisions and the last 2 nights (while we've been finishing up the ball the season) I've been talking on the sidelines to families about their faith walks.
