I am currently taking a blogging vacation. I have many projects going on and will share about them all when I return! We are doing some redecorating here at the house and preparing for a HUGE garage sale!!! I do have one quick thing to share which I will elaborate on more later! Two weeks ago we were at the United States Tumbling & Trampoline competition. I am so proud of Jonathon!!! He won the National Championsip in tumbling!!!! I'll have pictures to share soon! Thanks to all for being patient during my vacation. I'm loving being a wife, mom, friend, sister, and daughter right now!!!!

Rise and....RUN!!!!!

"Rise and Shine and give God the glory, glory"...remember that little tune? Well, this morning at my house it wasn't quite rise and shine it was rise and run!!

We are in the middle of massive clean - out, pull-up carpet projects in both of the kid's rooms so in the meantime, they are camping in the living room (which they love and which also happens to be right next to our bedroom). Last night I stayed up late, doing different things with the understanding that....ahhhh, Saturday morning.....I can sleep late! WRONG!!! At 6:00 a.m. I was awakened by hysterical crying coming from my living room. I don't remember quite how I got there...I remember my feet initially touching the ground to steady me as I flew out of the bed but between there and the couch....I remember nothing! I ran to the living room, swooped up my daughter who was standing beside the couch crying, and collapsed with her in my lap! With heart pounding I asked if she had had a bad dream and sure enough she had. So we spent some time talking through it, she went back to bed and so did the guys. With everyone asleep now.....guess who is wide awake?????

I guees this is a great time to go for me to starty laundry and go for my walk! Afterall, I've already had my run!
