Summer's finally here!

I'm sitting in the car, Trey at the wheel, kids bouncing around the backseat (though totally secure in their seatbelts) on our way to family camp in Colorado. It's amazing to me how one of the most patient men in the world can almost pop a vessel at the prospect of getting stuck behind a tractor trailer on a two lane road.

"Drive! DRIVE!"

Perhaps it's the horror of having to read his lame bumper stickers over and over again for the next forty miles.

Perhaps it's the fear of the kids breaking out into another round of "Friday" that makes his blood run cold. I can't blame him. He's only human.

Anyway, we've had a pretty nutty May with Hannah getting married, Trey giving Covenant's commencement address, and the endless end of year parties that required cookies, and gifts, and washed hair. I have pictures but they're still on my camera waiting to be downloaded, organized, and uploaded. They may be waiting a while.

This momma is ready for a long summer break.

We're starting off spending a week with some pretty incredible people who we love but never get to see. Namely, The Kelleys and the Kings from Common Ground in Montgomery, Alabama, and the Wuerfuls and Gordons from Desire Street Ministries in Atlanta and Mobile. We can't wait to hang out and hear what's going on with their ministries. And sleep. We're gonna sleep. Alot.

Then when we come back we'll celebrate as Darius graduates from Pinkston H. S. He's excited but nervous about what's in store for him over the next couple of months. Dea has been an encouragement and a voice of reality for what lies ahead. We've loved watching these boys become young men and look forward to enjoying with them what will most likely be their last summer in our house.

Hoping to post a little more this summer! Thanks for sticking around.

Well dern, now I guess I'm going to have to revive my blog...again. Everyone is posting again. Looks like May just about put mothers all over the country out of commission! Y'all have fun!

Sounds like your May was a preview of my June. We've got one more month of school in Hong Kong!
Hope you enjoy every minute of summer!
