7 days down...

7 days down and 2 to go! Jon will be home from Mexico in 2 days! Today has not been the best day, of course it doesn't help that I put the boys to bed last night at 7:00 and at 11:00 they were still wide awake! I have no idea why...so today they are not the happiest boys. I am usually okay when Jon has to leave (at first), but by the end of the trip I really realize why God did not intend for us to be single parents! I seriously don't know how people do it by themselves full time. I myself will be in bed tonight by 10:00, I think midnight it the earliest I have been to bed so far this week, I have trouble getting to bed when Jon is not here also! But right now, I probably have the cleanest closets in the south! See you all next week!!!!!!!

Happy 4th of July!



Or as my British friends here say...Happy day we lost our territory! :) Freedom is a great thing, and I am so thankful to God that we live in America. Tonight we went to Lake Peachtree and watched a huge firework display. It was awesome! It started to rain about 1 hour before it was supposed to start and Ty thought it might be cancelled...but I assured him that it would be completely unamerican to cancel a 4th of July firework show just because of a little rain...okay it was pouring rain, but only for about 1/2 hour! The rain did cool things off about 10 degrees, so I am thankful for it also! It is now 12:30 am (yes, I should be in bed asleep by now!) and I am sure it is still about 80 degrees outside! Jon is in Mexico right now, doing a mission trip with Bill and the OM teens. They are working with another organization called YUGO. He will be home on Sunday, and then we leave on Thursday to the west coast! yippeeeeee!!!!!! We will be in CA and Oregon, and we hope to see everyone! We get home (to Atlanta) on the 31st of July and the boys start school again on August 8th. I can't believe it is almost that time again! We have had a fun summer so far, lots of swimming and playing with friends. We just had another family join OM and the boys have had a great time getting to know their kids! God is so good to provide instant friends and family here for us (and everyone at OM!). Well, like I said it is late and I better go to bed! Good Night!
