Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

Park Visit #7....

I need to "keep on keepin' on" with my park visit posts.  Park visit #7 was WAY back on June 4.

This park visit was to a park our kiddos have been to MANY times -- Athletic Park!  If you're local to us, you know that this park is the biggest in our fine little city.  It's the park that not only has 3 sets of playground equipment but also the high school football and soccer field, tennis courts, the city pool, etc.  It's also located right by "Sand Creek" with the nice accompanying bike path!

We stuck to the familiar equipment because we like (read: I) the lack of sand underneath the equipment. BUT, there's a sand volleyball pit right by the equipment.  And -- the kids spent most of the time in the sand.  That's ok, ultimately, because you know, they're kids!

While at the park that day, I ran into a friend who just had a baby (her 3rd child).  I hadn't yet seen her new baby.  So, rather than paying extremely close attention to our kids and taking copious amounts of "helicopterish parenting" pictures, I chose to talk and catch up with her!  Good choice!!!  The adult conversation was fantastic!

BUT, true to any park visit, Kate cried (I don't remember about what)....

And lastly -- if you didn't notice in this post, that day, Kate's hair was put in a ponytail. That would be because she LET me that day.  It hasn't happened since that time.  SO -- I'm glad I took pics!
