Dirt Biking Boys

I really didn't know what to call this blog, Fred had bought the boys a dirt bike & I was not to excited about it. I know it's a boy thing but I also know boys can get wild and want to show off on their new toys. So far we have had it a week and I have to say Collin rides pretty darn good and he is also very careful, knowing his friend just 2 weeks ago got hurt on a dirt bike & crashed and ended up having stitches just about in the same area as Collin. Jesse also takes it pretty slow he's still learning how to deal with a clutch, (Fred is a good teacher).

Do you see the cleaning bottle in Jesse's hand? I think the dirt bike is cleaner then their bedroom, but I have discovered that the dirt bike has been an incentive to get their bedroom a little cleaner

Sunshine Yellow

Emily has been wanting a new look to her bedroom, it use to be two toned purple, I agree it is time to up date, but I wasn't expecting the color she wanted. Yellow, I'm thinking pale yellow or lemon yellow, not bright sunshine yellow with turqouise curtains and we painted all her furniture white. I have to say I do like it. It now looks like a teen room.

It doesn't look as bright on this web page, it is alot brighter.

It was a fun project to work on together

Weekend Camping

Not to many fish were caught, Fred caught this one

A bunch of us went up to Big Bend Park for the weekend, the weather was great, the mosquitoes were awful and the food, well lets just say no one went away hunger, it was good, always lots to eat and we even had our first smores of the summer. The river was right there so some of the guys went fishing and of course the boys played in the water, I thought the water looked slightly gross. I would have to say the best part of all was just hanging out with family, it's always fun being together.

If you look closely you can see the Redwings game playing complements of Kurt

Fun night for Emily

Doesn't she look beautiful, Emily had her 8th grade formal last night. They had a dinner then awards and a dance for them. It was Emily's first dance. It's hard to believe that she will be in the High School next year. The years certainly did fly. I have learned to treasure each day I have with my kids. Someone once told me(actually lots of people had told me)enjoy them because they grow up so fast, but at the time when your're dealing with diapers, and spitting up all over you and getting up at wee hours in the night, you kind of just look at those people and think yeah right(I'm tired) But coming from experience they do grow up fast, sometimes I wish I could go back to those diaper days o.k. not so much the diapers but the baby experience would be fun.


The baby days are over for Miss Emily and now we are in the teen years, alittle challenging but I wouldn't give up one day of them, she is fun to be around.

These are Emily's friends, they are all great girls, I have gotten to now them over the years. They are a group that sticks together and watches over eachother. Friends are great to have.

Personal Testimony

There are days when the past sneaks up behind you and won't leave. There is a reason Jesus died for all man kind, one reason is me, I'm a sinner I have been since the day I was born August 1968 but I was born again July of 95 when I received Jesus into my life. Now I'm a born again believer. A Christain. My soul is in love with Christ. I am nothing without him. I believe Jesus is coming back real soon for his people, my hope is that anybody that reads this is ready. Even though I had invited Christ into my life, my life didn't change dramatically, the Holy Spirit guided me as I grew in Christ, (and I'm still being guided) but sometimes my flesh(wordly thinking & acting) didn't listen and I made some horrible decisions in my life. I'll have to live with them for the rest of my life. But I also know that Jesus forgives and I'm thankful for that. We live in a sinful world, we need to reach out to a hurting world and show them the kindness that Jesus shows us when we make mistakes. I truely felt like the whole world was against me this past week but after realizing that Satan is only trying to bring me down I realized that I needed to lay it down at the foot of the cross where Jesus will pick me back up. So if the past is trying to hinder you look up. Jesus is the only one who will never leave you nor forsake you, He will walk beside you when you feel like your all alone.
