My kids love to know what is on the agenda for the day. Every morning when the little ones wake up they ask,"What's the plan, Mom?" I give them a list of things we are going to do that day and for some reason they love that I guess it is their own way of having order to their day. If we are going to deviate from the plan I try to warn them or they get upset and say "that is not in the plan!"
This past weekend when they woke up I told them there was no plan and to get in the car. I would be taking them to some suprise locations.( I really just made them up as I went along)
Our first stop was Starbucks where we actually went in and drank our Fraps, theirs was strawberries and Cream and mine Carmel. ( one of my serious weaknesses) We then drove about 25 mins to this really great park. I did a short bible lesson for them at the Gazebo and then away they went. My husband works for FedEx and this park has a neat little FedEx plane in it. They had a great time. Then I said it was time to go to the next place. Somehow they began calling each new stop, levels, so they said let's leave the park and go to level 3 and so we did. We went to Memere & Pepere's house where they picked blue berries and went swimming.
Then to Burger King(yuck) Where they could play and eat instead of just going through the drive thru. The last level was bowling what a blast. I had planned to do a movie too but I was tired after 7 hours so home we went. That was the beauty of not telling them exactly what we were doing. No one could hold me to it.:)
They were so cute telling daddy about their day. They had a blast and so did I.
Carson is very competitive so here is is not smiling because the score was 82-81 and he did not win. :)
My father in law has a few blueberry bushes. Every summer he picks them sometimes 3-4 hours a day.
This park was fabulous!
When they were at the park and BK I had an opportunity to read the study I am doing, No Other Gods, by Kelly Minter. What a great study. I know that Beth Moore is doing it online with thousands of women but I came in late so I am doing it on my own. It really is an eye opening and convicting study. So simple yet so profound!
Hope you all are having a wonderful week.

Chandler was held over for Regional pool and we were thrilled. The one bright spot in the weekend.
The only truth I seem to be able to grasp today is that I am Engraved in Him Palms and nothing I do, say, or feel can remove me. praise Jesus.

I am back. Yeah for my family as I know they have been tired of not hearing from me through my posts. The computer did crash thanks to several virus' then it did not help that I purchased an anti-virus program that was a virus itself and gave freely my credit card information. I have been a little anxious about that because I have seen no evidence of purchase but probably need to cancel the card. As I write this I am thinking how dumb that I haven't already cancelled it!!!
We went to North Carolina for Soccer regionals with my son's team where they made it to the quarter finals which was exciting. Then we went to Hilton Head, South Carolina for some relaxation at the beach. Then home only to leave the next day for Nashville for 2 more days. I have never been gone that long from home. It was busy but a lot of fun.
I have enjoyed lurking around and getting caught up on so many blogs. So many wonderful things happening to so many wonderful people. Some sad things that are hard to hear but neat to see how people are choosing to lean on the Lord to get through their pain. Tears flowed from my eyes as I read that Kelly is finally pregnant and doing well, and as I read Angie's blog about several mothers that have lost little ones met up at the deeper still conference this past weekend. And Lisa's post on selfishness wow!!! I can so relate!!! And Nester's computer down... oh the horror ( I have enjoyed her sister's guest posts though) and Kat's great news.. No Cancer! Isn't crazy how we can feel like we know someone so well and we haven't even met them in person? My husband laughs at me when I begin to tell him stories about some of you. He asks, "and who is this person?" Oh well the connections can run deep even if through a computer. :)
Happy fourth of July to all of you. We are heading to the drive in with the little ones.
Happy Anniversary to Helene and Bruce we love you guys!
