Well, its been a few months since I have last blogged.... so I am well overdue.
My surgery in May went well, the cyst removed was larger than a softball and I had no complications.
My eldest DS was back from college in time to help my parents, my DH, and I with transportation, Awana and other things as well as find a summer job. He is now back in school and while I miss him and his help he is where God wants him to be.
My DH is now 3 1/2 years without hospitalization or ER visits, he can walk without his cane if he takes a long nap before or after and its not around other people (i.e. shopping, church, schools, etc) He has come a long way and I pray that he stays this steady for awhile.
My youngest DS has enjoyed his first ever season of football, he went from not knowing anything about it and playing second string to playing primary kick return and secondary defense tackle, offense guard. After having this experience with coaches watching and teaching every step of the way he's not sure he wants to return to track and field in the spring, he did shotput and discus. They were coached by kids 2 years older who admitted they weren't sure that they knew what they were doing and spent most of their practice time running. His first time practicing his actual event was the day before the only meet they had. :( not the best way to encourage them to stick with the program,
I still love working with Awana and have struggled this fall getting everything done in a timely matter as my work hours had increased but God provided the time we needed to get caught up and leaders who have stepped up to help without being asked. In Sunday School we are going through Experiencing God. I have enjoyed this study before and finding it just as relevant to where I am at today and the lessons are spot on.
