Playing Catch Up Once Again....

I know I know I am so far behind on my blogging. These past two weeks have just been so busy. With work, back to school, baseball practice, kids programs starting back up on Wednesday nights at church, being sick, and did I mention work! There has just been no time for blogging. So as I sit at home this Saturday evening still not feeling to swell, while Jim, the boys, and 2 friends of the boys are out at the lake I have decided to get you caught up on the Green household.

A few weekends ago we headed to the lake for a bit to let the boys go tubing. After we got the boat into the water PayBo noticed some lighting on one end of the lake. So of course we still headed out but in the opposite direction of the storm that was brewing.

Jim wanted to show us a restaurant on the other side of the lake and it was in the opposite direction of the storm so we headed out. So we we continued it got darker and darker and cooler and cooler. The water starts to get a little rough, but still we continue on thinking the storm would go the other direction. Well the water got rougher, the sky got darker, and a few drops of rain came down. So at that point we decide to turn around, we will have to check out that restaurant another day. So we turned around and headed back toward dry land. OK now here I am scared out of my mind continuously praying to myself "God please calm the waters, God please let us make it back safely, God please calm the waters!!!" And the boys are sitting in the back with huge smiles on there face loving every wave we hit and every splash of water that came into the boat. And Jim sitting in the drivers seat saying "I see god's hands all over this, it's a beautiful picture." I have to agree with him it was beautiful, but I was still scared out of my mind and I was so glad to make it to dry land safely!

Also this past Monday school began for the boys. Colby started 1st grade and PayBo started 4th grade. They both love their teachers. That's a major plus for Colby, he actually says he is liking school this year. Now I know it's only been a week but that's an improvement for Colby. Now PayBo is just to old for his mommy to walk him into class, so I dropped him off at the front door. Colby on the other hand still wanted me to, so I grabbed a pic of him at his new 1st grade desk.

Colton said he really likes school this year and that 2nd grade is better than 1st. I told him it gets better every year.

In your husband's defense, there was no lighting while we were on the water.
