AWOL from Blogging

Well, I just looked at the date on my last post and I realized that it has been a few days since I blogged. I can't believe how fast time flies-although I wasn't feeling super bloggish.

See this boy? He is a wonderful guy-good daddy-good man-hardly ever done anything wrong in his life-(that he has told me-ha ha) Well, we got the news that his promised job with the police dept. wasn't coming through as planned last week-after they had already made him an offer-so needless to say-we have all been kinda devastated these days.

It's hard being a mom when your kids are hurting and you can't do anything about it. It's more painful to watch your kids go through heartache-even more so than when you have your own heartache. It's a little hard to kiss the boo-boo when he is way bigger than you and this boo-boo is way bigger than I can kiss away. I'm crying as I write this.....so all I can do is pray and pray and pray and hopefully the hurt will go away....He is going to try again....third time will be the charm!
Other breaking news:

Locally.....Let it be known to all persons.........this will be my place of habitation for the next few months...in the pool in front of the jets.......please leave messages and all calls will be returned when my appendages start looking like prunes.........
Somewhere in Tennessee......This jailbird (the one on the far right) is being transferred and will now be zone leader for the Spanish zone-in charge of 30-35 missionaries......(should I be worried????)

Finally the Father's Day Photo.....minus one little chick......who is busy moving to his new area today (and hopefully staying out of mock jail!)

Awwwwe love the family picture. It was so nice seeing you the other day. We still can't believe what is happening with rick, hope it goes better this time. Who knows, maybe policeman isn't what Heavenly Father has in mind for him. We will keep him in our prayers. And by the way, enjoy that pool....I am soooo jealous!

I am so sad for R, darn! I hope it all works out. You have great kids! I love the picture of them with TL on Father's Day! Enjoy that pool!

Love that photo of the fam on the couch..you all look so happy.

I hope your disappointed son will realize another blessing God must have in store....we sure have...we have had many disappointments, but have seen God's guiding hand in all of them

We went to the mission pres house tonight with a bunch of Spanish speakers. I thought of you and your son.

TALK about being AWOL...I would love to have been AWOL for the last month because I was actually in the pool.
