Life. It's doesn't slow down does it? We have things we HAVE to do, things we've committed ourselves to, things we WANT to do. If I were to write all that we've done or have to do in the last two weeks or the following two weeks- I would shut down this computer and crawl into bed until I felt it was safe to come out. Guess what? It will never be safe! We can't hide from our responsibilities no matter how long we procrastinate, it's much better to grab the bull by the horns than to run around trying to cover our red pant wearing behinds! (My grandma used to say that.)

Danny helping Grandpa with yardwork. Grandpa let Camille and Danny both ride the lawnmower with him, they had such a blast! My dad is my hero in so many ways, he even braved taking the children to a drag race! I think it was the first time he had taken them someplace by himself and they all had fun.

A dog statue that Danny had fun with at an arts & crafts festival while we were visiting my parents.

Danny got a race car painted on his arm while Camille choose to have a horse on her face. It was a wonderfully nice day, the weather was perfect and we all had fun.

This picture really captures Danny's softness which I'll miss because he's getting older. Life has been crazy lately, I don't have a post for Camille's work because it has been sporadic as we've been travelling. It's nice to be home and resume some type of normalcy- who am I kidding!? We're not normal. Camille's piano lessons are going well, French is going well, our new cooking is going well as long as I cook the vegetables before they sour. Life is good. And I'm thanking God for it all even while I pray for strength during this time as we deal with Dh's mom going home. There's not an update for her, she still has cancer and it's still untreatable. It may happen at any time but I'm leaning on the Lord and trying to be there for my dh. Her 60th birthday is coming up and we pray it will be a good one for her, a lot of family is gathering. I pray that the Lord will make me an instrument of His peace everyday lately.
