Awesome Weekend.....

What a great weekend!  Both my kids were home, we laughed a lot, watched Doc Who, cooked, went to the movies to see Cars 2( which is very funny) and just enjoyed being together.  Life is so fragile.  I find myself trying to hold onto each moment.  At church, our teens got up and danced!  I LOVED it!  Freedom.  Freedom in church... not constrained by religious legalism or tradition.  Tears came to my eyes.  I sat down yesterday with both of my children and just marveled about how 'different' they are, yet I love them both so much.  My Sarah is the 'talker'.  Her mouth does not going.  Constant conversation.. going and going and going..  lol   My Drew is a 'thinker'.  He likes to ponder things.  I see it in his brain all the time.. trying to work things out.  Next week we leave for the beach and I am looking forward to spending time with my kids.  Drew is almost 11 and Sarah 10.  We only have a few more precious years while they live at home.  I know... depressing thought... but it does help me to keep my priorities in focus.  Raising them.  My goal is to raise the kids to be secure in who they are in/with God, love them with all my heart and teach them integrity.  I guess those are my top 3 out of 100.  ha ha   Today Sarah and I are taking some old clothes to Goodwill and then having a 'Mommy/Sarah date'.  Saying good bye to Drew this morning was tough, but I know he is having a great 'learning' summer at Grandma's house.  Memories he will always hold onto.  He is also a part of an intense 'reading program' created by an amazing teacher named Ellen Beam.  What a blessing she has been to me and does not even realize it.  Okay... time to stop writing and go make my princess an omelet.    Have a wonderful day!
