God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Quick Update

I know I promised pictures that I have not come through with yet.... sorry. I have a whole camera full of pictures that need to be uploaded - we have just been busy here. I'm usually really good about staying on top of that, but for some reason I just can't seem to get it done these days. Here's a quick re-cap of the last couple of weeks.

Zachary has remained in school and has managed to catch his SECOND cold in the 3 weeks he has been in school. He also shared this cold with his sister so they were both well for about 2 days from the lsat cold before they became symptomatic with this one. They are both tolerating the cold just fine and I am thankful that it is just a cold.

Since I last posted we bought a new sofa. Well, let me clarify, it is a used sofa but it is new to us. It was a Craigslist find that I am thrilled with and we now have a place to sit in the livingroom!

We also took both the kids, along with Mee-Maw and Pops, to Nivens Apple Farm on Saturday. Oh what fun! Both of the kids loved it - seeing the animals, climbing on and off the tractor, the hay ride, apple cider, the corn maze and of course the apples. It's something we look forward to every year. Last year Anna Grace was just learning to crawl when we went so she was really too young to enjoy all that Nivens Apple Farm had to offer, but this year - she kept up with her brother and was totally tuckered out at the end of the day! We plan to go back again in a few weeks once the pumpkins are ready to pick. Fall is in the air and we are enjoying the cooler weather.

Anna Grace and I have started going back to church with Brian and Zachary - although I am not taking her back in her class because she was just staying sick from the "nursery germs". So, I am now just taking her into the Sanctuary with me. She usually lasts about 15-20 minutes before we have to step into the hall because she won't sit still - but it is nice to be back in the Lord's house on Sunday even if we are in the hall :)

I am also in the process of planning a joint birthday party for Zachary and Anna Grace. Now, just to clarify - Anna Grace's birthday is not until December 28 and Zachary's birthday is not until January 26 so I know I'm early here. But, hosting a birthday party in the middle of cold/flu/RSV season is just not something I'm quite ready for just yet - so - they will be having a joint Fall birthday party at a local playground. Zachary also asked that it be a costume party - so - it is a playground costume party. What does he want to be????? A knight. Anna Grace likes to dress up, but only for about 30 seconds so I most likely won't be taking her in costume - I might just throw a tu-tu on over her clothes that way if she gets tired of it I can take it off easily.

So, that is about all that is going on in our little group for now. Thank you for checking in on us!
