On our way!

We're still Here

Wow! A long time has passed since I last blogged! We've gone through some ups and downs in the last four months, but our faith remains in Jesus, the one who remains the steadfast through it all. Since my last post was in April, I will try to hit the highlights of the last four months.
I turned 30 in May and I feel old....not really....I don't feel much different at all....Chris had a family surprise party for me which was sweet and fun.
June....Our little Joshua turned one!!! He is such a sweet little guy! He started really crawling at 12 and 1/2 months...He is all over now and pulling up on EVERYTHING! I'm so thankful for him! We went to the Smoky Mountains with my side of the family. We all stayed in one big house which the kids called "the castle". It was a lot of fun even though all of the kids except Jessica came down with a fever bug either while we were there or soon after we got home. Kinley's favorite part by far was the Aquarium which had a really cool tunnel that you walked through with sharks and other fish all around you. He was was Joshua. Kinley didn't know what to do for a few days when we got home and his cousins weren't there 24/7 to play with him.
July....we swam a lot in my Mom's pool...both boys LOVE the water! We also enjoyed the Iroquois County fair watching Cory, Emily, and Austin show their pigs and Jess and Katie dance in the talent show...and of course the yummy food!!!
Living Hope also had tent meetings for four days which were awesome!
August....Mom and Chris' birthdays....hotness....enjoyed a day at Miller Park Zoo yesterday which was a lot of fun!!!
Over all it has been a great summer! I'm enjoy my boys...all three of them and our life together. Excited to see what God has in store for us!
