i make phone calls

all day long i make phone calls and after 6 hours of making phone calls i think i am starting to go crazy! the last call of the day i reached a man named george all i needed to know was if a check was received for records. he told me he had to go to another place to find out and placed the call on hold. i was on hold for 15 minutes. nothing like the last call of the day lasting forever!!

verse of the day

proverbs 31:5 - She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at days to come.

i am blessed with friends who are amazing! i am so glad that i have friends who love the Lord and love me too!! whatever is in our future God is in control and that is pretty cool.

last campground

i went to seashore campground for the last time this summer. i take pottery to 4 local camp grounds and this is one of the best campgrounds around. it is always bittersweet to see summer come to an end. but i am so glad that i got to meet Nancy through Art & Soul and bringing pottery to the campground. she is such a great lady and wonderful friend. i am already looking forward to coming back to seashore next summer. thanks nancy!!

1 corinthians 13:13b (message version) Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

so we went to the cole brothers circus last night. little "s" loved the cotton candy and the popcorn and especially the motorcycles which she pronouces "moto kykles". or course the motor cycles were first so after that she kept asking for them. the elephants were last and she could have cared less. she just wanted to see the motorcycles one more time. the circus is over priced and cheesy but she loved it!! the $5 cotton candy and the $5 popcorn were a big hit!!

501 posts

pretty cool. i just saw that the last post i did was my 500th thats pretty cool. so today we went to the beach and our little friend had a great day. she loved every part of the beach and was so tired when it was time to go home she didnt seem too upset to have to be leaving. she fell asleep on the way home and was a little grumpy due to all the sand in her pull up. she loved the water and she even made sand angels. both david and i missed out on our naps but it was worth it. maybe next week she will take a nap! fat chance.

so tonight i took pottery to a camp ground and david came along with our friend and they played on the really big playground. i just heard this story from david sorry its not first hand but it was so funny i had to share. they were waiting patiently for the big slide while two french canadian boys were playing and david kindly asked them "ok boys go down so the little girl can go" the just blankly stared at him. so he asked them nicely again, "ok go down boys so the little girl can go." they still just stared at him. finally he put on his mean face and harshly shouted "get off the slide" and pointed where they needed to go. (he says north) they took off down the slide and ran away. as they were sliding down david nicely said "merci". he has already become quite the over protective father. the fact that she was soaked from playing in the lake and i thought was pee also made me laugh. we are having a good time even though its hard we are also setting boundaries. please continue to pray for us as we continue to figure out this whole parenting thing.
