It's over already?!

Well this summer flew by...I don't remember the last time it went by so fast...probably because I was having so much fun! I go back to Gville on Saturday. I am so thankful for Monte and Julie opening up their house to me. It was so awesome to stay here and be with them and the kids. We have had some good times. Way too many to write down on here, but maybe when I get a second I will.

This summer has taught me a lot. It was a rough begining, but God is so amazing. He has provided for me and shown me so many things this summer.

I have also loved being here because seeing Monte and JB has made me realize what I want in a marriage. They are so amazing to eachother and with their kids. Beckham and Ainsley are adorable(we all know that), but they are so well behaved. I used to think they just were blessed with "good ones", but being with them everyday I see how much hard work goes into being consistent and loving with them. Yes Beckham and Ainsley are also good kids too, but I think a lot of it has to do with how Monte and JB raise them. Julie is an incredible mom and is always thinking of fun things to do with/for the kiddos. Monte is a great dad...just today when he got home from work it almost made me cry seeing how excited the kids were to see him...they immediately stopped playing with me and jumped off the bed and ran down stairs with a huge smile and laughing. It was so sweet.

This summer has also been great because of thier church. I love the pastor and am thankful I got to hear him. I am definently going to be getting the podcast for his weekly sermons.

Okay I am babbling on, but I just wanted to take a blog second and reflect a little. I hope Monte and JB know how special this summer has been and how incredibly thankful I am. I don't think I can even express it! I love you guys :) I move to Gville on Saturday...pray that everything goes smoothly! xoxo

I am glad that you have had such a great summer.

I hope this is a great year for you and all your kids.

I am also looking forward to hearing about and seeing pics of your new pad.

The house seems lonely without you. We went to the neighborhood concert last night and made the comment we wished you were there with us. We too had a lot of fun this summer. It was great spending time with you. It was a joy to have you this summer. You were a great help and the kids loved having you around (even if you did tease Ainsely - J/K). I pray that things go well in Gville and that you remember how special you are and how you should be treated. Thank you for the kind post. Our doors are always open. We miss you.
