okay, so i thought i would be submitting a daily account of the in and outs of the carlisle chaos...anyone who knows me well, thought better and thought right. so a month later we are in the thick of the summer and having a ball. we are at the end of school and will be heading to colorado for a friend's wedding so, after that we are for the most part home here from there on out. we just spent the weekend with my family, the original clan...the cates clan, to celebrate my oldest brother (1 of 6) sean's birthday. we had a blast being all together, eating, laughing, and taking lots of pictures! it was a sight to see!
the kiddos are in vbs this week @ a local church and loving it! they are also staying with (second) cousins three days a week and having an absolute blast. wonderful blessing to our pocketbook to not have them in traditional childcare/summer camp and a definite blessing to spend more time with this family we adore!
mommy is finalizing plans and details for a home vbs 7.30.07 to 8.3.07 that we are so excited about! we will have ten kiddos including caleb and bella, and we are believing god is gonna show up in a big and mighty way! so encouraged and refreshed by all who have prayed, and given financially and practically. what a blessing to have such wonderful friends and family!
we are in the countdown for bella and caleb's birthdays. (bella has counted down for a few months now) and mommy is reminiscing about days gone by. caleb will be 8 on sept. 3rd. and bella 6 on aug 16th. such blessings, my sweet kiddos are to my heart!
daddy is being kept on his toes lately, by keeping caleb and bella home with him on monday and tuesday each week. they are having a blast being home with their beloved daddy!
so in a word we are blessed! eventually i will figure out how to post pictures to my blogs and keep everyone up to date visually!
by the way our (extended) family is growing...in approximately an hour we are welcoming our nephew colt landon carlisle into the world! like i said we are so blessed!
