stories stacked up


I have just a few minutes before we are going to Jay’s last swim class of the summer, so I thought I’d just chime in for a second. A lot has been happening in the last few days. So much I’d like to blog about but really not enough time, especially when my house is a wreck and I spend time reading other people’s blogs!

I’d like to blog in more detail but here are a few highlights that have me thinking this week.

* I am watching the Tour de France. Yes, you too can watch it if you get the VS channel. Love it!

* On Wednesday I had the honor of being present when my friend, Eileen, gave birth to her 3rd baby. Eileen and I have known each other since 5th grade. More to come on that story. (I was crying like a baby when that baby came out . . .then basically couldn’t speak as I was trying to capture the first few moments on  film for them. I am amazed at the miracle of LIFE!

* The next day, Thursday (yesterday) I went to Newport Beach with Holli and we witnessed the tragic story of a man being pulled from the water. Don’t know if you heard about it, but you can read it here. I cried again while praying that that man would know Jesus. I am so thankful that the kids were oblivious to what was happening. But this has stayed with me, even to this morning. The juxtaposition of witnessing birth then death the very next day has me feeling unsettled . . .

* Anywhoo! I’m thankful my parents are coming over after swim class today to help me with the kids while I pull my house together!!! Love the grandparents!  I’ve got stuff to post about swim class too. Oh and my sister is coming to visit from Texas in 9 days!!! Woot, Woot!!!!!!!

Know I really have to go. I basically let Kellen run amuck as I  wrote this and I am smelling something distinct now!
