Almost over

I can't believe we are coming to an end to another school year.  I will have all 4 boys in school full time next year.  Still have 4 boys in 3 schools with no busing, but we will figure it all out.

When did they grow up?  Wasn't I just bringing them home from the hospital?  "M" only has 3 more years of school left...that is hard to grasp as it is.  Then there's "N"...he has 1 more year of elementary and then moves onto Junior high...or how about "D" and "A"...they will be at school full time next year.

It's amazing how quickly they grow up...time doesn't stop for a moment.

Anyway, now onto figuring out what our summer schedule will look like!!

Ok...it's been a while

So, it's been a few weeks...or so...since I last posted.

Almost a year ago a tornado hit our neighborhood...you can still see some of the signs of it, but mostly people have gotten on with their lives.  The house that was destroyed had been torn down and a new one is in it's place.  I'm not sure if the people who lived there before own it or sold it and moved elsewhere.

Last night those images of the night of the tornado came back...I guess it's due to the 3 lines of storms that came through last night.  Reminds me of how short time really is...here today and gone tomorrow.  Had that storm a year ago shifted a few yards, it could have been our house.

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
