Better late than never

It has been almost an entire month since my last post. The day after I posted, I picked up my dad at the airport in Austin and he spent the last three weeks with us. We had a great visit. I miss my family. Military life doesn't always afford you with the ability to live close to family and with 1500 plus miles between my parents & sister and my family, our main method of staying in touch has been the phone. Thank goodness for cell phone family plans :)

My dad arrived on Wednesday morning and since we were in Austin already, I decided to find the Children' Museum and take the girls there. It was small and cute! The girls had fun running around trying out the different stations. The best part is that is was FREE! We have a science center membership and there is a recipricating agreeement between 250 plus other science/children's museums in the US. We also squeezed in a trip to Sam's Club since it too was on the way between Austin and the base.

I can't specifically remember everything we did in those two weeks but it was great to have another adult in the house....someone to talk to and bounce things off share the load of trying to get the girls ready and out of the house for things....someone to stay up late with and watch TV. I love my parents and having my dad here was a tremendous blessing. I didn't remember what I was missing...until dad came...and then left. Miss you and love you Dad!!

I have been reading a book about Psalm 91 and hope to post next week about that book. The weather here in Texas had been dreary the last two days. It's the kind of weather where you don't want to get dressed or go anywhere...and I haven't. I have stayed in my PJs bumming around. Tonight the girls and I are having a family movie I best be going. Just wanted to post something since it's been awhile.

Let me leave you with a scripture. Proverbs 3:5-6

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight
