Congratulations to Dr. Robert Bentley and his family for winning the Republican Runoff for Governor of Alabama! We are prayerfully looking forward to the November election!
I am through with my jury duty. It was NOT a fun 3 days. It was a Rape case involving 2 girls, sisters, who were raped by their mother's boyfriend when they were 9 and 10 years old. Heartwrenching. We found him guilty, after only 10 minutes of deliberating.
It is a busy busy time for me, and the jury duty just added to it! The children are all home for the summer and I have wonderful babysitters who are absolute ANGELS to me!!!! They are super flexible and understanding and GREAT with my children!!! Also, my sister and mother-in-law have helped out alot too, they are also WONDERFUL!!!! I am in the middle of trunk shows with Shrimp and Grits Kids clothes - I am a Rep and it's a 2 week ordeal, of which I am VERY grateful for!!!
It's HOT! Have you noticed? I am a runner and I run at 5:00 in the morning. It's HOT and HUMID even at 5:00 in the morning. So much so that it's been VERY hard to get motivated to just go out and sweat and suck wind, which is all I feel like I do while I'm running - it's not pleasant right now. I'm really looking forward to some cooler, less humid weather, but I think that's still about 3 months away!!!
I'm right in the middle of Beth Moore's Esther Bible study and I cannot say enough good things about it! I have learned SO much, and really been able to apply it to my daily life!!! If I was good with words, I'd share with you some of what I've been learning, but it always ends up a jumbled mess, so I'll just say, if you get the opportunity to do this study, DO IT!!!!!
So, in a nutshell, we are enjoying summer, swimming alot (it's the ONLY thing you can do outside right now) and staying busy. I'm trying to make the most of every moment that God gives me, whether at work or with my children or with friends, because there are less than 4 weeks left of summer!!!! I absolutely cannot believe it!!!!
