Where do I start??

Well, we have been VERY busy around here!! As of Thursday night we have finally finished getting the house organized and finished ready for Collins. We have had packed schedules everyday. I am looking forward to things calming down and hibernating for the fall and winter!
Last weekend in Pine Mountain was awesome. Jack had so much fun playing out in the woods, fishing, and of course being the center of attention. The most memerable part was the wild safari we took!! You drove through the safari and these massive animals walked right up to your car and stuck their heads in. Jack freaked out at first, but by the end he was hanging out the window calling for them. I am posting a couple pics of that, but even the pics don't do it justice.

We are spending much of the time this year in small groups. As busy as we are right now, we both felt it is important to focus our time and energy on what really matters. Sunday nights we are in a Growing Kids God's Way group. We have been looking forward to taking this group for sometime and we are already learning a whole lot! I would highly encourage every parent to take this class. Great kids are no accident- Only when you look to their maker can you find out how to bring out the best in them!
On Tuesday morning I am in a small group, Calm My Anxious Heart. I am learning the art of being content in EVERY situation. Thursday mornings Brendan is in the small group, The Pursuit of Holiness. He is learning the significance of being a Holy man!

Between small groups, preschool, Brendan's day job and mulitple building projects we are BUSY. But, busy means the days go by quicker and the time till we meet Collins grows shorter!

Hey Courtney! You know we live about 35 minutes from where ya'll were last weekend? We STILL haven't been to the wild animal safari....we hope to go soon though! We've heard lots of funny stories from friends who have been. Glad ya'll had fun at Callaway. We have the privilege of having passes from David's company so we get to go anytime we want and we love it! You look great! Has Shea told you Luke and I are coming for a long visit to B-ham in a couple weeks? We'd like to get all of us together! Ok--sorry for the long comment!
