THE BLUE HOLE

YESTERDAY WE WENT WITH 3 OTHER FAMILIES TO THIS AWESOME SWIMMING HOLE CALLED THE BLUE HOLE... THE WATER WAS AMAZINGLY REFRESHING AT ABOUT 65 DEGREES... THE AIR WAS PROBABLY OVER 100... AS TODAY WAS EXPECTED TO BE 105 DEGREES... AHHHHHHH.... TAKE ME BACK TO WISCONSIN:)
HERE WAS ANNA JUMPING OFF THE CLIFFS... SHE WAS SUPER BRAVE AND TRULY I THINK HER TAKING THE PLUNGE IS WHAT GOT HER BIG BROTHER CALEB TO FINALLY JUMP...

ONCE HE DID IT... HE LOVED IT AND JUMPED OVER AND OVER AGAIN... I WAS PROUD OF HIM... AS MUCH AS CALEB IS OUR TEXAS TORNADO... HE IS A LITTLE FEARFUL ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS. IT WAS FUN TO SEE HIM OVERCOME THAT FEAR:) ALL ON HIS OWN.



A BUNCH OF THE KIDS ON TOP OF THE CLIFFS



EMI OUR NEIGHBOR, ANNA, CALEB, AND OUR FRIEND JOSH:)
WHAT A REFRESHING DAY...WITH THIS 105 DEGREE HEAT, I WISH I HAD THE BLUE HOLE IN MY BACK YARD... IT WAS ABOUT AN HOURS DRIVE, BUT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT. HONESTLY, THE WATER IN MOST PEOPLE'S POOL IS LIKE BATH WATER DOWN HERE NOW... IT IS JUST WILD. AND THE BLUE HOLE HAS SOME AMAZING FRIED PICKLES... YUMMY!
SOME OF THE SCHOOLS STARTED BACK TO TODAY... I THINK I AM IN DENIAL THAT SCHOOL IS AROUND THE CORNER... I LOVE HOMESCHOOLING, BUT THIS SUMMER JUST FLEW BY... TOO FAST FOR ME:) I AM HOPING TOMORROW TO GET THE DAY TO MYSELF TO GET ALL OF OUR SCHOOL STUFF ORGANIZED, A SCHEDULE PUT INTO PLACE, AND THE KIDS CHORE LISTS PUT TOGETHER... BOY THEY WILL ALL BE THRILLED WHEN I GET HOME...
OK, I JUST HAVE TO TELL YOU, THE KIDS ARE WATCHING A DVD OF TIM HAWKINS, THE CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN... HOLY COW, MY HEART IS FILLED WITH JOY AS I SIT HERE AND TYPE AND HEAR ALL THESE LITTLE GIGGLES COMING FROM THE OTHER ROOM. WE HAVE OUR FRIENDS 3 KIDS HERE FOR THE DAY... AND ALL THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF LAUGHS COMING FROM IN HERE ARE JUST HEART WARMING:)
MAN, THAT GUY IS HILARIOUS...
ALSO I HAVE TO JUST TELL YOU ALL THANK YOU FOR ALL THE ENCOURAGING WORDS ABOUT THIS NEW LITTLE BABY I AM CARRYING AND FOR SHARING IN OUR HAPPINESS OVER OUR AMAZING EMBRYO ADOPTION JOURNEY. MY HEART IS TOUCHED DEEPLY BY YOUR LOVE FOR OUR FAMILY AND FOR YOUR PRAYERS FOR OUR NEW LITTLE ONE/ONES:)
BLESSINGS ON YOUR FRIDAY... AND YOUR WEEKEND! I HOPE TO POST SOME PICS FROM UP NORTH SOON:)

Sara,
Love the blue hole! Looks like so much fun. And Tim Hawkins, my kids love him too. They just asked if we could order a full length DVD of him, as up until now they have watched snip its on YouTube (with us).

I,too, can't believe school is right around the corner. I still have so much to get ready for our homeschooling year. Hoping your day of planning and organizing goes well and is productive.

Continuing to pray for you and your family.

Much love in Christ,
Stacy

Hey Aunt Sarah!
I was wondering when I can put pictures of HOPE on my blog? I want to show all my blog freinds her! I hope she is doing great, as well as yourselves.
