Holy Moly!

I can't believe it's almost been a whole week since we've posted something! I've thought about things to post, but time has slipped away, and I haven't made it to the computer. So, how are ya? We're okay. Trying to catch my breath...things are wrapping up with the school year, the kids are excited about summer, I'm starting to have anxiety attacks that they only have two weeks left, we're getting ramped up for our vacation, we've signed a contract on a house, put our house on the market last night, went to Luke's kindergarten graduation, got through Mother's Day, Kelvin finished his spring semester of school, Cora learned how to twirl around and do the moon walk, Luke continues to figure out all kinds of math by himself, Carleigh is an ace at reading, Emma is surely running and leaping through fields of flowers, and that's about it.


Are you anxious about summer too, or is it just me. It seems like our big kids are at each other's throats in a matter of a few minutes when they are together. I can't imagine what's it will be like this summer. Today a friend and her three year old took Luke to lunch. He was telling her that Carleigh doesn't like him, she won't let him play with her, and he can't go in her room. That breaks my heart. I really do think he loves her more than she loves him. I guess it's the whole younger sibling thing. I wish my fantasies of children who love each other and get along like champs would come true. I know families whose children are like that, why can't mine be like that too? I need some creative ideas to keep them occupied and in agreement.

What's that you say? I just sprung the whole house sale and possible moving thing on you? Join the club. It was pretty fast for us too. I hope it all works out. The new place has a little more space for our crew, and a monstrous backyard. If you think about it, say a prayer for God to work in this whole thing. We certainly wouldn't want to make any decisions that don't align with His will. Not a good choice. Email if you're interested or know someone who might be interested in the house. We'll hook you up!

A couple of other things we would appreciate your prayers about...Maddie, a twelve year old little girl whose body has been rejecting her bone marrow transplant for Leukemia for four years now is also having a hard time producing enough carbon dioxide, if I'm understanding correctly. Also, Maddie's dad has active MS, and her high school-aged brother has Crohn's disease. I don't understand why things happen the way they do, more on that in a later post I'm still working on. But please pray for this family. Also pray for our friend, Bruce. He is going through chemo and radiation now for his brain tumor. They removed about 95%, but the other portion was not operable. He is struggling to remember things, and will face therapy to relearn some things. Hard times for him and his wife, Debbie, no doubt. Thanks for the prayers.
