We're safe

Thanks for your prayers - we are safe from the tornado damage in Alabama. We had minor damage and feel very grateful to the Lord for safety. We are without power and they anticipate it being back on by at least next Wednesday - HA! We're getting very creative for our showers.

Thanks for your prayers and please continue to pray for those who did have severe damage - it is truly mind boggling the amount of devastation.

Faith - what does it mean to you?

Just to clarify - I don't mean the belief of God kind of faith as in "I put my faith in God", but the practical, active kind of "belief IN God" kind of faith.

Would love to hear your comments - if you don't have your own blog, you can always leave a comment under "Anonymous" and then leave your name in the comment :)

This and that

We’ve been doing a LOT of this and that – baseball and soccer! But I LOVE it and would prefer to be running to practices and games than just sitting at home :)

Note the kid at bat – that’s our guy!! Note the man at 1st – that’s MY man! Note the kid running at 1st base – he’s likely to be famous someday. Seriously, he’s a super athlete and a sweet kid. We are trying to sneak an autograph so we can say “we knew him when …”! Hadden’s team is starting to put it all together and have won their last 2 games.

Savannah is doing very well in soccer – she seems to have turned the corner and is much more aggressive and into the game. She has a new coach and the whole team is playing very well. They had to play up a level this spring in order to allow everyone to play, but they have learned a lot and have even won a few games.


Happy. I guess he has decided to adopt us. We found out that he does not belong to the neighbors after all, and he was a stray. I felt sorry for him and started feeding him then. He is a sweet dog, so I guess we can’t complain too much. His only flaw is barking at all hours of the night :)

Behind Happy is our start of a garden. John built me some raised beds and we hauled some top soil from down the hill. I planted sweet potatoes, sugar snap peas, tomatoes, peppers, and onions so far. I bought a lot of plants that were already started because I was kind of late getting the garden in.


Our hunting cabin “neighbors” offered to rent the equipment if John would work on the road! Man, he drives a hard bargain! John worked VERY hard and put many hours in moving dirt around and the road is a LOT better. Way to go, honey!


Savannah had testing last week, so one of the days Hadden and I went to Turkey Creek Falls. This is a tubing and swimming spot in the summertime. Right now, I think it would be a little bit of a wild ride!

And, just for funny …


Lilly thinks she is a lap dog still :) Flashback to a few years ago when they both were a lot smaller!


Hadden is forever putting his shirts on backwards, but he was a good sport and let me take a picture of it. Big mistake, son!
