Big Change

Your love, oh Lord Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains
Your justice flows like the ocean's tide
I will lift my voice To worship You, my King

I will find my strengthIn the shadow of your wings

Since July when the boys came back from church camp at Camp Clark Williamson with Holly Grove. They enjoyed it so much and were so happy to have other kids there age that they could learn more about God's word with. We have attended Smyrna since I was born with my mother, so that is where we have always went. There were children there, but not just a whole lot and not much of a structered childrens program. So, that has led us to Holly Grove. They have a wonderful children's program, and also I love it. And... it is nice to feel comfortable since most of my family goes there. The Kinney's and Goforth's were raised there, and I spent alot of my childhood there with my grandparents.
Don't get me wrong, I liked Smyrna and but just felt the need for more, something different.
We have once again gotten very involved in Sunday School, and now while the kids are at their Wednesday night programs, parent's are attending an Essentials of Discipline class that I think is going to be great on ideas for helping raise children.
Sunday, we have decided will be when we officially join the church. It's an easy decision, but then again I still feel bad leaving my mom, even though I know that she doesn't mind as long as we are going. Change is just not easy! Now... just by Sunday I have to work on the courage of walking up in front of the church with my family to join, not so easy for me! I don't like being in front of a crowd and everyone staring at you!

Our Community Park burned down

I ran to the grocery store quickly after Brie's basketball practice tonight, while Jason stayed at practice with Bailey. On the way back home there were emergency vehicles going every where! I got home only to find out that Cobb Parr Park playground was on fire.

Like most people in Covington, we frequent this park on a regular basis. My kids love, well loved, it. I showed them the pictures earlier and they all teared up, Brie wanted to know why someone did that. That is a question of my own. It is being investigated as arson. Why? Who would want to take away the many smiles this gives our children?

Valentines Day

I guess we are pretty boring around here for Valentine's Day! No special dinner or anything, just spent our normal Sunday together. We started off with church, then our usual Sunday dinner at moms, then we celebrated today as a special day for Big Daddy and his birthday! The kids then had their Valentine's party at church. Brie and I had a great time last night together making Valentine cookies for their party at church!

Mini snow vacation

We had so much snow and ice Monday that we have been out of school all week! It's back to school though tomorrow! We have had a lazy week, Monday and Tuesday were spent playing in the snow, while Wednesday we ventured out to Wal-mart for a couple of much needed necessities like milk and sugar!

Surprise snow

As the alarm went off this morning, and I grunted and hit snooze before getting up I heard my phone in the kitchen beeping with a text. So, I wondered into the kitchen and read the message that said "Look outside! No school!" I ran to the back door and looked out and sure enough we got a surprise snow! I had briefly watched the weather and saw that there was a possible 1 inch, but never dreamed it would be anything to get us out of school. Thank goodness we go that extra time everyday to give us our snow days!
Lucky for us, Jason has to work a shut down this weekend so he is home to enjoy it with us!
