summer time

wow. sorry tara and leah, ( i think you guys are the only ones who check in on our blog) it has been a long time, things have been busy as we have been running rental groups at the camp and getting ready for our summer camp. summer is always a hard time for me. it is hard because we never get to see dave. most of the time he spends the night out at camp and even if he does come home we are all in bed and he usually leaves in the morning before anyone is up. these are the days that i think i just cant do it one more hour. the kids are a handful and the house is a mess.... bla bla. God is doing and always does amazing things at the camp, so it is just my selfishness that wants it to be done sometimes before it even starts. we usually try to get out to the camp once a day for lunch or dinner. it is nice to see everyone and hang out for a little bit but then it is always hard to leave. garret and rae are both really sad to leave daddy and all the new big friends they make every year and i am sad becasue i know i am going to have dirty tired kids to give baths to and get in bed all by myself. dinner, bath and bed seems like the hardest time of day for me.
well i sound pretty whiny and selfish now and need to stop complaining. i am praying for strength to get through this time and that i will have a good attitude while doing it.
i have some other cute things i want to post here soon too. just need to find the time to do it.

I've been checking back often and am so glad to see an update! So sorry that things are so crazy for you right now- On days like that, I am so thankful to not be a single mom! It's wearing, isn't it?!? Not to mention patience-exhausting. Praying for you, girl! You can do it- And know that you all are always welcome here! With the 2 of us and the 5 kids...at least we'd have another adult to share the frustrations with!

Love ya!

I'm sorry Bonnie, it sounds like you are so tired. You are such a great mom for devoting all your time to take care of them, that is about as selfless as you can get!!
