I can't believe that it is already past the fourth of July! Our family reunion was held in a forest area so there were no fireworks at all. So without the sparkly festivities it didn't seem much like the fourth.

I sent one of my kiddos off to camp this morning. I will be sending another one off each Monday for the next couple weeks. Ron and Emma leave next for youth camp and then Ron and Eli for boys camp. Eden was so excited she could hardly stand it. She was a bit worried she didn't pack enough candy...big worries.

Her room is all painted so this week I am working on getting her moved in and the room finished. This is the fun part! I am asking the Lord to give me a great bible verse for a piece of artwork that I am doing for the room. I will post a pic when I get it done.

Have a great Monday!

I am so excited to see Eden's room all done, you are doing such a great job!

There is a verse that I kind of "dedicated" to Grace when I brought her home, it is Jeremiah 29:11. For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I had the reference engraved on a little silver bracelet for her baby dedication. It is such a beautiful promise to us as God's children and I want Grace to know that she has a purpose, even as a small child God has a purpose for her! =)

I really like how you make each of your children feel individually special and I know this new room means so much to Eden. The fact that you have worked so hard on it, makes it even more special! ;)

I would love to see Eden's face when she first sees her room. I know she will love it! You have inspired me to incorparate our Zephaniah verse into my girls' room.

I am sure Eden will be so stoked when she back. I've seen your other kids rooms so I know it will be very cute! Your very artistic. Maybe I could get you to come paint my kitchen. LOL
