Day 116 Cookie Monsters!

My niece Skylar called and wanted to come and spend the night with us before she started back to school!  So of course I said YES.  Her teenage, too busy for us, silly sister wouldn't come play with us!  But she would swim with us once we took Skylar home!

We had a plan....make homemade pizza, homemade chocolate chip cookies, and watch the movie SOUL SURFER.

OOPS!! Too much flour!!! :)  such a giggly girl!! :)

 We Love you, Skylar!!!!

Day 115 Breakfast Outside

Day 114 Hannalee at Wee School

 Hannalee is going to Wee School at our church this year...two days a week while I teach PE and Spanish at the Christian school.  She had a great first day!  Who wouldn't love a turtle in your room!??

Day 113 First Days of School

This year JJ is going to kindergarten at the Western Oklahoma Christian school!  We are excited about him having Chapel, Bible lessons, and prayer time at his school everyday!  
On his first day of school we gave him a new Bible.  

Also, he has a Bible verse test every Friday....for a grade even....he passed this week! Shew!

"The universe was formed at God's command." Hebrews 11:3

Hebrews 4:12 NIV

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudesof the heart.

JJ we are proud of you for being such a great kindergartner!
I'm thrilled that your teacher sent you a note saying that she prayed for you today. 
She loves how faithful you are about praying for rain for the farmers!
She said you'll be a great farmer someday if that is God's will for you!
Thank you, Mrs. Dungan!

Day 112 End of Summer Putt Putt with Nana & Papa

We  celebrated the end of summer and back to school by doing two things:
one day we got to go to the park to play putt-putt, ride the carousel and play at the playground. 
We had a great was cloudy and "cool"...meaning it wasn't 110 degrees. Maybe only 99!!  :)

The other thing is a different and swimming!

Psalm 13:5 NIV
But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation

Day 111 Rio Grande Pyramid

This is the Rio Grande Pyramid...the headwaters of the Rio Grande river.  Starts out our backdoor at our ranch in Colorado!!! 

If you look at the second the right is a "rocky ridge"....that is the beginning of Black Mountain used to be a guest ranch in the 70's and 80's and now has 12 cabin/homes on it and we own one of them.  we have for 30 years.  I love this place!  Thanks mother and daddy!

Isaiah 18:3:
All you people of the world, you who live on the earth, when a banner is raised on the mountains, you will see it, and when a trumpet sounds, you will hear it.

Day 110 JJ's money and horse

JJ worked hard one morning picking up trash around Papa Jerry's farm!
So much so that he earned $5!!!  Way to go JJ. 
You are always such a good worker!!! 

This is JJ on Bear...ALL BY HIMSELF!!! 
He's always riden (for 5 minutes or less) on a horse in a small round pen while Papa Jerry led him on the horse and led them around.  But this time!! OH MY!! JJ got to be ON HIS OWN!!!
That's a pretty big deal, folks!

Such a big kindergartner now!!!

Hannalee and Papa Jerry on Penny!

Day 109 Just Because

We took pics of each other with the kids so Dusty would have new pics to put in his frames in his classroom at school!  

Such joy and laughter they both bring!

School is starting soon.  I am working 2 part time jobs teaching this year...

One at the new Christian school teaching PE and Spanish.  JJ will be in kindergarten there this year.

And I'm also teaching 2 days at the fabulous Rainbow Lane Preschool.
Hannalee will go there this year.  I've worked there as a sub, then one 1/2 day while JJ went to school there and now I'll teach 2 days while Hannalee goes there.

Quite the adventure we are on!!

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I love you very much!  You are my heart!!

Day 108 The Bible Tells Me So

Hannalee got this Bible at VBS this summer.  And just this past week she's been carrying it with her. EVERY.WHERE.  She so clings to it...and pretends to read it.  And sings "Zacheaus" non stop.  It's precious and blesses my heart. 
She was sitting in a "big girl" swing....and had to move to the "baby swing"
so she could hold on to the Bible and not the swing!   

"Jesus loves the little children.  The Bible tells me so."

Day 107 Swimming!!! No floaties!!

Psalm 107:35

"He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs;"

Rather appropriate verse in the midst of a drought!!!

I couldn't upload the movie showing how he is swimming across the pool!!!

YEA JJ!!!! 

Way to go!!!!!!

Day 106 Shaving cream!!

Leviticus 21:5 
"Priests must not shave their heads or shave off the edges of their beards or cut their bodies."  

NO priests here....carry on.....because you can never have, friends, or shaving cream!!!
