Crazy boys hiking in Hailey Idaho

freezing cold

Aj and Craig decided it was a good idea to go for a 6 hour hike over a foot of snow. We only started to worry when they were gone two hours later than they told us they were going to be...CRAZY BOYS! Jade said they got one more hour and we would send out search and rescue. Of course they thought we were just crazy and they were fine. Just really really tired!!!

The rumor around town is true indeed! We are expecting! I am 11 weeks pregnant and due around July 10th! We are very excited! It is unexpected blessing yet TRULY a blessing. I feel like I am almost through the "morning sickness" phase although it has been more like all day sickness. BLAH! This picture is with the little shoes that Papa Phil gave to Craig and I when we got married. Needless to say he is excited for the coming grand baby! As soon as this belly starts growing we will share pictures with you! What a fun adventure we are on now!!!

Old Testament History Project

For one of my classes we did a whole class group project and made a life size Goliath! It was pretty crazy and fun...we were divided into lots of groups (legs, arms, head) and my group was in charge of the armor. My friend and I specifically did the breast plate...lots of cutting and glueing but it ended up really cool!
High up on the ladder applying his armor....I had to staple it to him! :)
gives a better picture of how big he really was (10 ft. tall) according to the Bible he was between 10-12 ft...IMAGINE!!!! David sure had A LOT of faith!
before he was put together
that is one big leg...

Something to think about...

None But Jesus by Hillsong

In the quiet, in the stillness
I know that you are God
In the secret of your presence
I know there I am restored
When you call I won't refuse
Each new day, again I'll choose

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

In the chaos, in confusion
I know you're sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness
You give me grace to do your will
When you call I won't delay
This my song through all my days

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

I am yours and you are mine...

All my delight is in you Lord
All of my hope
All of my strength
All my delight is in you Lord
