Project 52. Week 24... Starting again... : )

Life is crazy but so blessed!

We have been in the mist of packing and preparing to attend our summer youth camp.  My girlie is a Senior and it will be her last year as a student.  I imagine that next year she will serve, possibly in Junior high or with Freshmen girls.
This will most likely be my last year as a counselor.  The girls I disciple are also Seniors in high school so when they are done, I will probably find something else to do.
I feel like I have reinvented myself many times in the last few years.
First, mommy, then homeschool mommy, then homeschool group leader, then after the move, homeschool high school activity director, homeschool formal co-director, then carpool mom, and sports carpool mom, team mom,  growth group leader and through it all-
wife trying to serve and find her way...
and most important-Child of God!
I wonder what is next???

These pics are from a few days this week that we did nothing but hang out at the pool...
My doggie loves the pool!

Did I tell you that my camera is broken???? It has been about 1 month! I have been using my girlie girls and my iphone! Ugh! I don't know hers as well.  Different type!
I need to get it to the shop!

Also- Happy Flag Day this week!
God Bless America!

Where in the World is Kim???

I am home again after a busy few weeks.
We flew to the desert to visit the older kids for our grandson's birthday...

Then from there we flew to Louisiana to visit our besties for a graduation trip.
We went to Alabama and sat on the HOT beach! So beautiful!
White beautiful sands but I am not sure how to handle the hot part.  Hahahahaha!
California beaches are much colder.

After a week there, we flew back to our home time for our old Pastors son's wedding.
Such a sweet wedding and it was great to see all my old friends.

I am now finally home : )

Here I am....

Here we are at the end of May...
I am so behind on my blog..,
My little photo journal world that I so love...

My girlie is in her last week of Junior year....
I am recovery well from my surgery 7 weeks ago.
In fact, today, I ran for the first time in 2 1/2 months.
Well, I jogged, then walked, then jogged a little more... etc...
It was good to get out and feel the fresh air.

The above picture is from an "Afternoon Tea" we hosted to benefit the Haiti mission trip we are going on. 
I am really going to try to get more pics up and possibly catch up with my P52. I have no idea what week I am on or should be on.

I am finally posting....
Wow! It has been a crazy month.

Where do I start?

First, the above picture is from our trip to San Diego and time at the zoo.  We had a great time with the grands and a week at the beach house.  I am slow in posting and pretty much slow in everything.

I had surgery on April 4th, the week after we came home from beach house.
This was my second surgery since February and it was a lot more intense than the first.
The next two weeks were a blur, because I was in recovery mode.  
BUT, I can say that I was extremely blessed by prayers, meals, visitors and one of my 
BFF's coming out to help me.  Shout out to Denise! She did all my laundry while I laid around on my tuff and did nothing.
While she was here, we did spend some time on Lightroom and she showed me how to use it.  
The above picture is one of the first one that I edited.  It is all so new to me so it takes me forever.  But, I will be on there more, now that I am feeling a bit back to normal to get used to it.

I am going to start on P52 again but instead of going back I am just starting where I am at.


This is the before picture...

P52 Week 6 and 7

Happy Good Friday!
I have been a mess with my pictures!
We have a week off of school and that is one of my goals, to get them organized.

Here are two pictures that were taken in February. : )
The first was taken in a train station in Kansas City and the second was at the downtown homeless mission in Los Angeles.


A week at the beach house coming up.... LOVE!!!

P52 Week 5

We went to a Antique store while in Seattle and I found a huge cabinet of old photos!
It was fantastic and sad at the same time.
Fantastic because instantly I was taken back into time.
Sad because these are pics of families.  Someones family.
I love photos.  
I love my old family photos. I would not want my old photos in an antique store separated from the family.

I wish we could unite them with their owners but alas we can not : (

The one on the left is dated circa 1920's.
I love the clothes.
I bought that one : )

What Am I Reading???

I find it much more difficult to take the time to read in this stage of my life.
I can and will blame it mostly on two things...
One... I get way more distracted... I blame that on hormones : /
And two...
Which is one huge reason why I get so distracted! LOL!
Back in the day, Before Facebook days, I would spend 30 mins in my bed before I went to sleep, reading.
Now, I spend 30
mins trolling on Facebook.  Ack! I hate it!
So this year, or more specifically in the last month, I have decided to force myself to put my stupid phone down and READ!!!!!

So far, I have read "Go Set a Watchman" by Harper Lee and
I am currently reading "Brooklyn" by Colm Toibin and "Emotional Purity" by Heather Arnel Paulsen. I am reading that book with the young ladies in my disciple group.

I am also listening to "Screwtape Letters" By C.S. Lewis.
I read that book years ago to my boy when I was homeschooling but thought I would listen to it.
It is soooo good, btw!

So there you have it...
True confessions about my life and what I am doing with my time...
