And he's off...again...

We dropped Ryan off at the airport this morning and although my heart is aching at having to say goodbye...again...it's also happy that we shared a week of memories and love and that my boy is living his dream! Godspeed Ryan. We are already counting down the days until you are home again. :)
Watch out Korea, here he comes!! :)


There is nothing cuter....

than a little boy in Wrangler jeans!! :)

Ryan....

He's HERE!!! He's HERE!!!

So after a whirlwind trip to Oklahoma to see our son graduate from his military training school we are back home and trying to get life settled back into our "normal". :) But, but, but!!!!!! The very best part of all is that RYAN IS HOME!! Praise God! We get to enjoy him for a couple of days before he heads off to K*rea to serve for 18 months. Poor boy. We are sucking the life out of him. LOL! It's been non-stop fun having all his old buddies over, laughing, reminiscing, wrestling (boys!), eating!!, and just trying to soak up the moments together. Looking down the row at church and seeing my big boys sitting there....makes me tear up every.single.time.  Last night we heard that long-awaited sound....Ryan playing his electric guitar very loud. It sounded soooooo good!! I'm dreading when we put him back on the plane later this week but am thanking God so much for this opportunity to love on him to hold him over. :)

So forgive me in advance for gushing about my boy.....…

This Journey of Life....

Whew! It's been awhile since I've posted here. Trust me, it's not because I haven't had anything to say! :) However, I've really felt the need to set aside my computer time and just live. It's amazing how quickly "just a minute" on the computer morphs into an hour later. Don't get me wrong, I love having the ability to learn and grow right at my fingertips but I was just feeling a pulling in my spirit that I knew it was time to lay it down for awhile.

It's funny how I always said I don't have enough time in the day but yet I always carved out time to check email and my favorite blogs and yet, some days, my Bible laid unopened and unread. :( So not good! I know that this journey of life, at least in my house, is intense. I have many small children with many needs and not enough of me to go around. Some days I feel like my head has been through a grinder and other days I feel like I'm on top of the world. We continue to deal with issues …
