Project 365: Weeks 37, 38, & 39 "pre-vacation, vacation, & post-vacation"

This is my catch-up week. Back from vacation and ready to get busy with life again. I reeeeally held back and was ultra-conservative with my photo-posting. Because I care that much about your eye health. But you'll have to promise to come back later and see ALL our vacation pics. M'kay?

If you'll remember, on this particular weekend we were in Fayetteville with friends for the game. So today was spent driving back. Between my juice fast, requiring that we drive all over town looking for a juice bar (or the equivalent), my overactive bladder (a side effect of being on said juice fast), and an impromptu stop at a Goodwill store just for the fun of it, the normally three hour drive, turned out to be more like five. But it was still fun. So much so that I forgot to take a picture. (Eh. It's just as well, considering...)

Labor Day

Thankfully, Paul was off today so we were able to drive down to my parents' house to pick up the kiddos. They were so excited when we walked in!

Lower

Yesterday we drove through New Mexico. Elevation of 700 feet. As opposed to the 9,000+ feet to which we had become "accustomed." Let's just say... my lungs are grateful.

Today it's Texas. Wide open spaces. Plenty of oxygen.

But I'll be honest, I'm gonna miss my lung-crushing mountains down here on lower ground.

Silence

It may seem as though I've been ignoring my blog. Well, I suppose you could say that. But I have good reasons.

1) We started school several weeks ago, and all that new curriculum had me eating, sleeping, and breathing school.

2) My husband is crazy spontaneous and his equally spontaneous boss gave him tickets and a hotel room for the Razorback game a couple of Saturdays ago (at the last minute), which we couldn't refuse! But coordinating that last minute trip with child care and all that goes along with it was a bit of a doozy for me.

3) And last but certainly not least, we left for a very unorganized, no-idea-what-we-are-going-to-do-when-we-get-there trip to Durango, Colorado...on Friday the 9th. And that's where we are right. now.

I am blogging on my phone. (Thank you 3G network.) We have no Internet at the mountain cabin where we are staying. And as it's going to be several more days before we get back home, the silence is going to continue for a bit longer.

But just so you know, I'm okay with the silence...'cuz at this very moment I happen to be surrounded by snow-capped peaks, deepest valleys, river-cut canyons, dark green spruces, softly-passing deer, and ancient Aspen groves. And this environment? Well, it demands silence. And awe. And thankfulness to the One who created such magnificence as this.

Project 365: Week 36 "baptisms, a bumped tooth, & a ballgame"


"Week 7" without a real camera. This is so hard for me... 

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Our church family celebrated six baptisms this afternoon! And then we picnicked and swam and just had a lovely time together. 


Atticus made friends with the cute doggie. (He LOVES animals.)
