Balloons & Pumpkins

I'm back! Thank you for your sweet emails checking on me. Ah it's hard to know what to say. There have been a few reasons for my lack of blogging. One is that life is just busy! You get that. ; ) The boys are at such fun ages, and I'm squeezing out all the moments I have with them. 

School, homework, church, awanas, choir, and tennis keep us running these days. Both of my boys are homebodies, too so we love playing at home.

I've also been leading a Hope Group the past seven weeks. We have one more week in our fall session. I have ten hope moms in my group, and they are amazing. I'm so honored to walk beside them in their journeys. 

I've dedicated this week to blogging about what we've been up to, and it's my goal to keep it up! Since I print out my blog posts each year I want and need to continue writing and capturing moments of life.

Several weeks ago we learned of a SHARE Walk to Remember and decided to go. I knew the boys would enjoy it, and in the car they talked about several things we do to honor their sister. They even reminded me of things!

Grief is a crazy thing. When I'm in a good place, it's far off. I never forget about it though, but it's not always in my face. Sometimes it's fresh, and I seem to be in a season where Reese's life and the loss of her are close to the surface.
Sweet brothers
It was a beautiful day.
Our families and friends are almost too good to be true in their support and love for us.
Zach had his first 1st grade field trip to a pumpkin patch. I can't get over his long skinny legs in this pic. Sweet boy.
He'll be 7 on Wednesday. I can't believe it!

So thankful he loves first grade!

I hold fast to Your statutes, Lord; do not let me be put to shame.

Psalm 119:31

I think you summed it up perfectly: grief is so far off when you are in a good place. But, it's always there. Thinking of you and loved seeing the pixs of the boys. So handsome!!! Hugs girl!

That's great you are doing a Hope group! I'd love to hear how it's going. We brought Cradled groups to Nashville (Hendersonville) now, so that has been exciting for me, too :) And how wonderful to have family and friends who remember Reese with you! rach

Though I don't know you personally, I so admire the steadfast faith and trust you have in The Lord. It shines through your posts! Praying for you at this moment as I'm up nursing my baby boy.
