The colors were more
beautiful than this picture gives justice.
I am. Not. A. Morning. Person.
Walking is a nice way to curb anxiety, though! I seem to be stuck in a moment, so prayer and walking really help me focus on the important stuff... Like the way I am so blessed with family and love, and stuff I don't even really need, so what have I to worry about? I don't know, but it is such a human thing, to worry.
Company from Texas arrives today! I'm looking forward to visiting with them. They should actually be here any moment. We're having a spaghetti dinner (I totally can't mess that up), and maybe we'll go out for ice cream or something. We should have a good time!

I'm praying for my Seattle family because I just love and miss them so much, and they are looking at houses to buy, and powering through some changes. I'm praying for Eileen and family as they continue to mourn the loss of her mother. It's such a bittersweet time. They have just so much to still do, and tie up loose ends... it's a really hard season for them. Pray!
This week we have friends from Texas! So, tomorrow I'll start getting rooms ready, and floors cleaned, laundry done, bathrooms anti-bacterialized... you know, the list just goes on and on. I'm looking forward to their visit, though. I've known Mike since I was born, literally, our moms had the same ob-gyn, and their twins were born the same day as Tommy. It should be a good visit. And now that recital week is done, I can focus on that and the rest of summer!
I'll post pictures soon!!!!

It's recital week! Today is the ONLY day we have free this week, so I believe we are heading out to Kings Dominion! It'll be our first family trip there since Katie was 2 years old! I'm hoping it's a fun day. It doesn't seem like it'll be too hot. YEA!
So, I'm sure we will have a drama- filled week, that I will report on sometime after the 12th. In the meantime, I'm catching up on a few pictures:

Katie loves to eat lemons! The whole thing!

I know I need to write, I love to write, I miss writing... I've got great excuses, though.
My friend's mother went to Heaven last week, and I'm sure she is going to join her husband and get to be a saint. If anyone deserves to be a saint, it would be both Mr. and Mrs. O'Brien. It's been an emotional two years for their family; and by God's grace and their faith in Jesus Christ, they all seem to be in a peaceful (although sad at the moment) place. We attended both the wake on Tuesday and the funeral yesterday. I pray for peace for everyone who is mourning the loss of such awesome people; and for the family for having the patience and love to continue living their lives and raising their families.
So... with Memorial Day weekend (visiting with family in the mountains), and the work of grieving with a friend, it's been tough to sit down and write. I will though, after the loads of laundry are done, and the craziness of recital week (next weekend - yikes!) is over.
