And with the seasons change

Life may be getting ready to change drastically....  And I'm so excited. God has been preparing me and I'm ready!

I took the girls to Coopers Rock yesterday and it was beautiful! We hit the perfect weekend probably right before it gets too cold and the leaves fall off. The beauty of God's design is amazing standing there in what seems like the side of the earth. The colors of the trees are magical. Those moments are what reminds me of God's splendor.

The changing of seasons reminded me of what is happening in my life. I would normally not embrace this and live in anxiety and fear of what could happen instead of embracing the possibilities and magic that is happening before my eyes. The trick for me is taking my control out of the process as much as possible. Watch and see, God says....

I will post pictures later from or adventure. Stay tuned.

Big girls!

My baby lost her first tooth!! She has been waiting a long time for this. She was a late bloomer on the tooth-losing front as most of her friends starting losing teeth in kindergarten and she is now in third grade. Yes, we have heard it means you have great strong teeth but to a little kid it is a milestone that she has been waiting quite a few years for. I was beginning to think she may start her period before she lost her first tooth! LOL! But really, she was ecstatic to lose her first tooth even at 8.  And I'm sorry, I just have to say it....isn't she beautiful!!
This is a picture from Family Story Night at their school that we went to last week. These are their favorite student teachers and they were helping with the event. Charlotte loved that she had on the same slippers as Ms Sisson. We went to different rooms where they read a story to the kids and then did a craft with them. There are more pictures below. Charlotte enjoyed the company of Poppy Jo and Drea had fun with her friend, Sophia. In these pictures they are making maraccas.
