June 28, 2015

Hard to believe this month is almost done, and we'll be half way through this year. As they say, "Time flies, when you're having fun."

I got the girls up this morning and because I didn't have them take a bath last night, had them take a bath this morning. It was a little out of the regular schedule, but they dealt with it. I didn't wash their hair (it really wasn't too bad anyway) because I didn't want to have to deal with wet hair and get them ready for church. The funny thing is, Stacy dressed herself today, and she looked great! She even got a few compliments on how nice she looked. I hope she maintains the sense of style. Jackie wasn't hard to get dressed, though she did want to wear other clothes than what I picked out for her. I also got some help from Stacy, and if Stacy likes it, Jackie is going to like it - generally.

We spent the rest of the day at home, where I was able to get a couple loads of laundry done and the rest of the days chores out of the way. It really has been a relaxed kind of day, all around. Jason had to deal with his new puppy, Kojak. For whatever reason, Kojak just doesn't like those dog beds. Jason has bought 3 of them since getting Kojak, and last night or early this morning Kojak attacked the third bed, and it is now out in the trash. I don't think Jason is going to be buying another bed for a couple of months, in hopes that Kojak will grow out of it. Gracie likes the beds...

We had a visit from Serving Spoons and Annie, the original contact person for us, was with them. She is home for summer break, as she will begin her second year at college, and she is looking all so grown up now. They brought us dinner, and it was very good, as it usually it. I was particularly happy to see them, because that meant I didn't have to make dinner.

Stacy and Jackie got to stay up past 20:00 (8 pm) tonight than then she read a story before going to bed. It was a story about Mickey and Goofy going to Australia, and except for a few words, she was able to get through the book pretty well. She loves to read and is always looking for new things to read and working so hard at increasing her own vocabulary. Not much else going on, so I'll sign off now, and for those that would like to buy a brick for Jason's home, just check out my FB page and you can find the information there. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. These verses contain the reason why we have the hope of life to come. Continuing to lift up prayers!
    Ephesians 1:17-20 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places...
