Back from the Black Hole

Hello there, friends. This will be a stream-of-consciousness post because it has been so long since I've posted.

Today was the last day of school. We teachers have two more work days to finish up grades and such. I am looking forward to no more school

I am not going to take my two-week trip to Kansas because gas is out of this world! But I am going to fly out for a week and I'm looking forward to spending time with my uncle and my cousin! My sister and brother-in-law are also coming out, so we'll have a good time. My cousin is celebrating her 50th birthday on July 1st, so I need to get a present together for her. She is the one who taught me to crochet, so I may make her something crochet-y.

D, my oldest, just finished his junior year in high school. He is right now in Baltimore, getting some sleep I hope. Tomorrow, he undergoes physical testing for the Marine's delayed-entry program. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, he will be sworn in tomorrow afternoon. It's what he wants to do and I am proud, sad, and terrified - all at the same time. He will spend his senior year getting ready for boot camp.

The mother-in-law is going to move in, so R has been working on the basement, getting it ready for her. She will probably move in in mid-July.

J is looking forward to scout camp this summer and possibly church camp.

The brownies in the oven smell good.

It's getting late and I should be in bed.

I can't believe Sushi is graduating! It seems like just yesterday she was a little thing. Where has the time gone!?

If you are inclined to pray, please pray for my friend's daughter, Lydia. She is four years old and had her thumb ripped off by a compressor. They were not able to reattach the thumb, and are hoping to save the joint. She told her mommy, "I'm sorry, mommy, I don't think I can do this..." :(

Have a great day, everyone!

Welcome back Missy! I hope you enjoyed your vacation in the Black Hole. So glad school is over for you. When do you start back?
I hope you enjoy your trip in Kansas with your family. Have you seen the skybus prices? If you book early, you can get terrific prices ($10!) They even have a plane going to Richmond.
Oh poor Lydia. What's a compressor?

Prayers for precious Lydia. I am deeply sorry for this incredible loss.

Prayers for you, too. For your oldest and for you with your MIL moving in. None of this is easy to deal with, by any means... I pray for strength and acceptance and peace.
