I love this boy's freckles


June is coming to a close and I don't have much to show for it.  We have been busy just enjoying the summer.
What have we been up to...
1. Sleeping Late (my favorite)
2. Swimming (Lots of swimming)
3. Elliot swimming lessons
4. Clayton to California (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal)
5. Clayton Church Camp
6. I was one of the church camp speakers.
7. Clayton and Oliver to Camp Gigi
8. Not menu planning.  Eating lots of sandwiches.
9. Staying up late. Watching movies together.
10.Oliver to SMAK (Summer Musical Activities for Kids)
We have fit a whole summer's worth of activities into one Month.  July is just as busy.  Today is the first day I have had all three kids in one place this entire month.  We have already made so many memories!

I felt so discouraged today.  I felt like God had forgotten me.  That maybe he wasn't listening.  But, he led me to this verse. 
You are precious in my eyes,
and honored
and I love you.
Isaiah 43:4

Then, this evening, I walked outside to the most beautiful rainbow and sunset.  He has not forgotten me.  He loves me so intimately that he would put a rainbow up in the sky just for me.  His promises are true.  He is good.

Everyday, the wait seems so long.  We are at the very end and this has been the hardest part so far.  Waiting on pins and needles every day for that phone call.  Expecting, hoping....but, it hasn't happened yet.  I woke up one morning and saw this posted on facebook by one of my sweet friends.  She asked people to pray and change their profile pictures to this.  How awesome is that!!! Keep praying for our girl.  It's happening soon!!

This boy has been so excited to turn 5 for months and months.  Every day he has asked "How many days until my birthday?"  It finally arrived and it was everything he thought it would be.  We had donuts for breakfast, he wanted sandwiches for lunch at home,  Kid Mania, Mcdonalds for dinner and birthday cake to top it all off!  He got some new Imaginext stuff, legos, and new clothes.  We are so excited to see what 5 brings for this little guy.  He has so much to look forward to this year.  He will be going to kindergarten and he will be a big brother!!  Big stuff!!  Happy Birthday to my favorite little 5 year old!!
