We spotted a bird outside of our living room window. Well, actually our kitty spotted it first. It was a baby bird and was just getting used to its wings. The cat was so wanting to play but no way would my girlie girl let that happen. We watched it for awhile and my girl got the camera and took these shots.
And yes, we are home! : )

The first picture is of my girl and some of her friends frolicking on the beach. The second is of a girl that walked on the beach in her beautiful gown. My friend and I kept going back and forth with wedding or quinceanera. I finally asked and it was a quinceanera. The third is a picture of seaweed. Yum! Just kidding : ) The last two are of Sea Port Village in San Diego. We love it there. So peaceful!
BTW, I MISS MY BOY!

Growing up so fast! He headed out for Summit Ministry Camp yesterday. He will be gone for 15 days! So long... never ever has he been away from me that long. Ugh! I need to get used to it. He will be grown in a minute.
School is out in our neck of the woods. We will busy this summer with camps, a job for my boy and getting ready for the next school year. My boy will be in 12th grade! Honestly, I have no idea where the time went.
I am praying that the Lord does a mighty work in my boy's life while he is at camp. God is so faithful!
He brought me this boy when I was barren and I will never forget!
Psalm 37:4 NIV
Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Snake season in California! What???? Yes, you heard it right... snake season!
I lived in the desert for a good 30 years and do you know how many snakes I saw?? None! Zip! Nada!
We move ourselves to this big ol' city and what do we come across??? Snakes, racoons, gophers, bunnies, lizards, ticks and bugs! I guess the last two are the same thing but you get my point! I AM A CITY GIRL!!!
Went on a run the other day and a snake slithered in front of me! I screamed loud enough for the entire canyon of snakes and people to hear me. My friend thought she heard me in the next state!
This morning on the way out of our housing development we see a truck with a sign that read "California Snake Removal." Oh, that is good to know. I told my girlie girl to grab a card : )

Having some fun on a bike ride with our friends at the beach a few weeks ago. I am just now getting the pictures up. We rode about 12 miles. I was so proud of my girl. She was having a hard time on the way back but she did not give up. She just kept pushing herself.
1 Corinthians 9:25-27 NLT
All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with a purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.

Oh, what a week! We have been gone for 10 days! We went to our home town so our boy could attend the formal with the home school kids that he has grown up with. Also, our newest grand baby just happened to be due and we made it home just in time. What a great week. It was bitter sweet seeing all of our friends and being with my parents. Also, being at our home church was awesome but again so sad.
The big story, besides the fact that my sweet grandson was born, is that I LOST MY CAMERA!!!! Yes, it was horrible! I actually had a mini breakdown and cried for about 45 minutes! We flew in on Tuesday and I needed the camera for the formal. I had not taken the camera out of my case since I got to my parents house so when I went to get it ready it was NO WHERE!!! I called the airlines and the airports. No camera. At some point, I called my hubby crying.... He thought something terrible happened, like my parents were sick. I have the best hubby ever! He calmly told me that he will buy me a new one. Well, I did not want a new one! I just got this camera in December! I was sick and I felt like I was SO irresponsible! I pulled my boot straps up and went to the formal with no camera. No boots, it was way too hot! Anyway, I asked someone else to take the pictures and he did an awesome job. I had an old point and shoot that I managed to take a few pictures here and there but I was sick inside!
My hubby flew back home early. He calls me from the house to announce that the CAMERA is HOME and SAFE and SOUND!!!! I forgot to take my camera! I had my kids convinced that I left it or that it was stolen! I even filed a police report! I was so happy and thankful!!! And no it was not a new new camera! It was the new camera that my hubby got me for Christmas! Oh, what a relief! Thank the Lord!
So the above pictures are of my boy and my hubby getting ready for the formal. My daddy helping my boy with his tie. Some of the cupcakes and my boy looking so handsome and happy talking with his friend.
And lastly, my latest grandson! Born on Friday May 25th!
