10 on the 10th…Playing catch up

10 Aug

There’s so much going on around here, friends, that I’m hanging on by thread…  To say that we are looking forward to the beginning of school (so that life will slow down) would be a complete understatement.  I’ve let the blogging (on this site) slide so that I keep up with life around here.  So, today I’m joining Meredith with 10 on the 10th: Catching up

  1. Summer is the busy season in youth ministry.  The students are out of school and camp, Six Flags, and summer concerts all seem to come calling at the same time.  We love it, but we’re always ready for fall. This weekend is our last big event before school starts back.
  2. One great thing about this weekend is that I get see family and some very dear friends.  Ministry is hard and we get moved away from those we love but the blessing is that sometimes God knits our hearts together with people when we least expect Him to.
  3. My favorite boy turns 11 in less than a week and is about to start the 6th grade.  That means next year he will be in our youth group…Yikes…
  4. We went to Old Navy yesterday because of the $10 jean sale and my daughter wanted a pair of skinny jeans.  She’s seven.  How does she even know what those are?  Apparently, at Old Navy skinny is the new slim so that’s what we have to buy to get them to fit her, but still…
  5. Speaking of jeans, I have yet to find the perfect pair for me.  I don’t think they exist.  Anyone have suggestions?  Random, I know.
  6. I’m Blogging for Hope. I would love for you to check it out.  My article will be posted on the 18th, I think.
  7. We have four months until December and I’ve officially started my Christmas planning list.  I know, it’s early but I have to plan now or it just does not get done.
  8. In September I will be taking a little trip with my aunt and staying here.  Words can’t express how excited I am.
  9. My husband bought me an Ipod and filled it with music and podcasts to help me stay focused while I jog.  Did you catch that???  I’ve started jogging! It’s just a couple of times a week but that’s the first step, right?
  10. I’m driving places.  I even drove Chris around on Sunday.  Those that know me understand what a big deal this is…

Happy August 10th!

10 on the 10th: Summer Edition

10 Jun

I love summertime.  So today I’m joining Meredith for 10 on the 10th Summer Edition.  Here’s what I’m looking forward to:

  1. VBS is next week.  Vacation Bible School is one of my favorite memories from childhood.  I’m so glad I get to share it with my kids.
  2. We head to youth camp around the end of the month.  Love this.
  3. I love going to the summer Farmer’s Market.  There’s something about red, ripe tomatoes, summer squash, and fresh green onions…oh my.
  4. Sun-kissed kids that run through my house smelling like a mixture of fresh air, puppy, and sunscreen make me happy.
  5. Drinking coffee from my “summer” mug:
  6. Wearing flip flops, sandals and painted toenails.
  7. We enjoy going to the movies with our kids during the summer months.  We’re seeing Shrek tonight and counting the days until Toy Story 3 makes its debut.
  8. Grilling, grilling, grilling…my absolute favorite way to cook (well, watch Chris cook…)
  9. Sami and I are trying to cook up a way for my family to come visit her (and Frank) this summer at the beach.
  10. I’ll be brewing a pitcher of Heavenly tea this week.  You REALLY should try some.

So what are you looking forward to?
