Hello Friends...

WOW! I can't believe it's been two whole months since I posted something. The last post was about Morgan leaving for Europe. Well, she's back home, safe and sound! I wanted to post pictures from the trip to share with you all, but's just too much for me to do right now. The group took over 2000 photos. I had this grand idea that I would be responsible for collecting all the SD cards and making a DVD for each student. That alone nearly did me in. lol! Seriously!! Anyhow, thank you all for praying for her safe travels. Your prayers helped!

School will be ending soon for the summer break. I will have a senior and a 4th grader next year...well, actually later this year!

There are so many people graduating this year that we know...either from high school or from college. We are also hearing some sad stories for the ones graduating from college. Many of them are having a difficult time finding a job in the field they got their degree in. There was this girl at Home Depot the other day helping me in the paint dept. She was sharing with me that she went to college for five years to get a degree in Leadership/Development. She's been searching for a job since last June. She finally took the job at HD in order to have spending money. So sad!

On a brighter note, my work is good! Business has picked up a LOT! Praise the Lord! In fact, we are actually turning customers away now. Imagaine that!!! Just this time last year, we would have given our service away for free just to say that we had gained a new customer. lol!

We don't have a whole lot going on this weekend! Yay!

It's RAINING MAD here in Dallas! Another yay since we planted over 200 bulbs a couple of weeks ago. I haven't done anything in my backyard since we moved here. We've put flowers out in the front, but nothing in the backyard. Since I won't be getting my pool any time soon, I figured it was time to get over it and have some color out back as well. lol!

Thanks for always e-mailing me and checking in on me and my family! You all are truly a blessing!

Sorry that I stay away so long. I'll try not to stay away so long this time!

Have a great weekend!

The Long Anticipated Trip to... EUROPE!!!!

Well, after many months of working hard and saving her money, our sweet Morgan finally left for Europe today. She went with her Humanities class for Spring Break to Paris, Rome, and London. She'll be gone for nine days!

She has almost been too much to handle this week with all her excitement! We spent several hours this week just looking for the perfect backpack! Seriously! And after her purchasing four different ones, she ended up borrowing one from a friend! Thank God that her Nana K and Grandad gave her the PERFECT luggage for Christmas or I would have had to put her out of the house by now. lol!

I am very happy for her and that she's getting to tour a part of the world that I may never get to see, but I am worn out, friends!

It must have been the Lord to drop this in my spirit, but on the way back from the airport I mentioned to Dirk that I wanted to turn on Morgan's radio in her room and for praise and worship music to be playing 24/7 while she's gone. We will infuse her room with the Spirit of the Lord until it soaks into the walls and fills the whole room with His Glory!

If you think about it, please say a prayer for her safe travel there and back to Dallas!

I only took about 100 pictures at the airport this morning, but I'll just share a few with ya!

I hope that she will take lots of pictures!!!

Have a great weekend friends!

Daddy Daughter Dance

Hey peeps!

WOW! It's been a while since my last post. Sorry about that! While we're on the subject... I REALLY would like to keep in touch with all of you, but my computer time is just not what it used to be anymore. A few of you have found me on facebook and I have really enjoyed keeping up with you there. I do get on fb several times a week. SO, for you that are also facebookers, can you send me a friend request? I am NO GOOD at finding anyone on facebook. In fact, when Morgan (my own daughter) set up her account a little while ago, I couldn't even locate her. Go figure!!!

Last night was the first annual Daddy Daughter Dance at Jae's school. I wanted to share several pictures that I took before they left the house.

Although, Jae would only dance with Dirk 3 times, they still had a great time. Dirk told me later that many of the dads were standing against the wall while their daughters danced with their friends instead. One dad even said something like it reminded him of still being in high school... standing against the wall looking. Awwwww...poor dads!

Dirk said the place was packed!!! I think it's great that so many dads tried to participate...even if they were pushed to the wall. lol!

Have a great weekend!
