Summer Time....

It seems like our summer is flying by and has been so busy I've hardly had time to get reorganized between trips. Actually, two suitcases are still in our garage somewhat unpacked. We've been to Colorado and a quick trip to Lawrence to visit Mike's family and for a wedding. We had a great time visiting mimi and granddaddy. The girls really enjoyed getting to spend extended time with them. Ellie loves all the little treasures in their house and neat books that Mike used to read. We celebrated Mike's birthday a little early with them and went to Longhorn Steakhouse which was on the East Coast as well. We got to see some of our really good friends in Kansas City and enjoy our time at Bode's wedding. He and Mike work together at Watermark. We got home and it seems like it is almost time to leave again. Mike leaves for Camp Barnabas on Monday for 8 days and I leave Friday to go to my parents house for 12 days. I have to stay a little longer cause we are going on vacation for a few days in Myrtle Beach and then I'm getting my wisdom teeth out next Thursday (yuck). I'm not looking forward to it, but my dentist there is great and I haven't found anyone in Dallas. I'm so excited about going to Myrtle. We went there so many times when we lived in Raleigh and always loved it. Mike is really excited about taking the high school students to Camp Barnabas. It is just like Kanakuk, but is for disabled children. Our students will be helping them one on one throughout the week.
Ellie has been in swimming lessons the past two weeks. It is another post in itself. HA! We've worked through lots of fear issues and giving our struggles over to God. Today, we just played in the water instead of forcing her to go under etc... She did much better without forcing her and I actually saw a little smile on her face. She normally is screaming when we pull into the parking lot and saying "I scared of water, Go Home". We have one more day since I will miss on Friday. We'll see maybe she will love it tomorrow?! Anna is changing everyday. She is enjoying feeding herself and climbing on everything! I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
