Friday Flower Fix & Last day of school

Happy Friday everyone!

"Nature is too thin a screen; the glor of the omnipresent God bursts through everywhere."

Well, today is the last day of school for our kids. What a L-O-N-G school year this has been. But it was exciting too. Jayla totally enjoyed being in school everyday and learned SO much. She's so she's NOT looking forward to the summer break. Poor thing, just has no real concept of time and doesn't understand why she can't go to school for 2 months. She said to me earlier this week, "But mommy, I don't WANT another Spring break!" lol. Little does she know, the upcoming break is alot longer than the week she had off in the Spring. I sure hope she keeps this attitude about school.

Yesterday, they had their last field trip and went to a local park to play. I met her there and ate lunch with her and her classmates. I even let her use my camera to take a few pix of her friends. I'll have to show those later, as I left the camera with her teachers this morning so they can take some pix of the kids enjoying an ice cream party on their last day.

Markell, on the other hand is really looking forward to getting out of school. He successfully survived 6th grade and his first year of middle school. Although it was a VERY rough road for him (more on that in another post).

Lastly, I ask that you guys keep us in your thoughts and prayers over the next few weeks. Not only because it's going to be a chore to keep both a 12 year old boy and a 5 year old girl entertained for 2 + months :-). But because some major changes are about to take place in our home. My heart aches when I think of what's forthcoming. But I know that God will take care and will see us through. I do plan to share this with you all soon...when the time is right.

Have a beautiful weekend everyone!!!

My heart aches for you honey. You will make it through and come what may, it'll all work out in the end. This is the path that needs to be taken and you will all learn and be stronger for it.

So great that Jayla loves school so much!! That is really a blessing!! I've always been so proud that mine love school!
Surviving summer is a challenge, that's for sure!!! keeping kids entertained is NOT easy!! I know you can do it, though!!

My prayers are with you and your family. Life really sucks sometimes and we most always remember no matter what it is we are facing...."This too, shall pass." Be strong!!!

I know you will seek Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and the rest is up to Him. Total surrender and dependence is what He's after, and as painful as our lives can be, when we surrender them, the burden is lifted.

Blessings, and do keep us updated. Thanks for all your sweet visits to my blog. (((hugs)))

So at first I just thought this was a a friday flower fix and while I love the friday flower mix I love the posts about your kids and the pictures I am glad that even though there were no pics of jalya that I still read the post!

I hope Jalya keeps up that attitude about school as well!

Can't wait to see what fun activities you guys do this summer...what I wouldn't give to be able to spend 2 months without working with my little one!!!!

You know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Life is full of twists and turns that God wants us to ride through and hold on. Trust Him and seek His wisdom. He will see you through.
