Happy 6th Birthday Micah!

Happy birthday to my sweet momma's boy!

This little boy stole my heart 6 years ago today, and I can still pictures him as this little bitty thing suffering through baby acne like a champ.

He has grown my patience, taught me to love when sometimes it's difficult, and shown me how to be a boy mom.

I love this little prince and pray he will be dangerous for God's kingdom.

At 6 years old, he has already taught himself to read (about 18 months ago), is doing 1st grade math and loves handwriting of all things!!  He loves to learn about animals and history.

He enjoys cars, legos and drawing.  He loves dancing when his daddy plays guitar and even will paint toe nails with his sisters.  He's a good sister-brother, and I can't wait to see how he grows into being a big brother to another little boy.

Micah James, we love you dearly!!

Some Musings this Weekend

I'm getting ready to head out on my 3rd day at the THSC homeschool convention up in the Woodlands.  It's been fun, seeing friends I haven't seen in years, sharing hour long drives with friends and chatting and learning.  I love this weekend.

Please I always get to see something cool.  The Duggar family is at our conference.  They have a booth and have spoken a few times.  Every where you turn is a Duggar kid :).   They are very down to earth and sweet.

I also got to hear Todd Wilson speak about family, raising dangerous sons, and can't wait to hear him today.  Check out his ministry: FamilyMan Ministry!   

I dropped my friend off yesterday and was heading down 99 and saw this.  Maybe you can't, but it was a beautiful rainbow up in the clouds.

My working at our church is coming to a close.  But I love this church body, and working here has made me love it more.  My kids and I drove out to the new property (that God raised almost $2mil so quickly and we purchased debt free---in a church of about 150 attenders!) and prayed over the neighbors and the land.  We can't wait to be meeting out there!!

So, will you join us in my birthday bash?  It closes this weekend and I'd love for you to participate.  Just go to our new blog,, or click here for the post!  Thank you :)

Fun weekend!

Well, it was a super fun weekend with the whole family at Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine.  I can't remember the last time I was with my mom and step-dad on my birthday, so that was fun, we even had cake! :)

The kids had a blast riding all the slides, romping in the water, and playing with their cousins.  I have 3 nephews...maybe one day we'll get a niece!

IF you haven't checked out our new blog, Worthy of Our Calling, please do!  I have a fun birthday post, that I need your help with!!  We have only raised $20, so I'd like for you to share, share, share on social media and help me reach my goal for my birthday.

If you'd like to see some fun summer reads and book recommendations, we have a post up about that here.

We have some great posts about being restless, hearing God, faith, adoption, God's power (an amazing story of God's faithfulness) and money.  Eric's even writing!  We'd love for you to take a look, subscribe, or share with others.  We pray this new blog is an encouragement to you all!!

And now, here are some fun pictures of our last few months.  This is a feat because my phone and computer do not like each other and rather sync well! :)  These gems are from January 2014!

Visiting Bailey and Jack
 Telling the kids we were going to Disney!!
 First Day of Gymnastics for Anna Banana
 First Dentist visit!
 Dressing up in Yaya's old dance costumes!
