We're back

We are sooooo glad to be home today. Got in about 11pm last night and everyone was dead tired. For those who don't know, we took our vacation to Six Flags Great America this year. Left for Chicago on Wednesday and that evening we went to the Gurnee mall. That place is HUGE!!!! The kids tired out early so we ate dinner and went to the hotel. Thursday was Six Flags....without saying too much it was fun for a couple of hours and then it rained and rained and rained. That sort of shot the fun there. Don't get me wrong the kids still enjoyed their time they had there. Friday we went to the water park side and that was great!!!! No rain just lots of sun. One nice thing about Six Flags was you can go either to the water park or the ride side and we all had lots of fun and were burnt and very very tired by 7pm and wanted to come home.Will post pictures of the trip later. Right now we are still re-cooperating and getting the house back in order:)

All in His time

As i posted the other day we are looking for a new van. Well, yesterday started our journey to find it. Boy, i didn't realize how stressful it can be to find a new van for our family. We drove a couple of them and then was the waiting game, to see which one would fit our needs and budget. In the mean time,I was stressing and ended up breaking out with hives. I knew i shouldn't be stressing so much but i am a worrier.I worry over way too many things.Ended up not getting one from that dealership.They asked way to much for the one we wanted.We are going again today to see about another van. Maybe today i can remember to let God handle the situation instead of me.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is life not more important than food and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life."

Matthew 6:25-27 NIV

friday already??

We have had some computer issues latetly. Our internet had to be updated and to do that you had to call the internet provider which by doing that you have to be on hold for 2 hours before you get someone on the line. ugh!! Anyway, we got it fixed and now we are back online. I didn't realize how much I miss being online. That is terrible,huh:)Guess I am really hooked to the internet.
This weekend is suppose to be really hot so guess we will be staying indoors. We have company coming from Kansas so ought to be a fun weekend.Hopefully, i can get hubby to cook on the grill. Ya know it keeps the kitchen cool if you grill out and the best part is i don't have to do the cooking.:)Hope everyone has a great weekend. Stay cool!!!:)
