Week of New Adventures

This past Saturday, our baby boy, Camron, lost his first tooth.  Camron said that the tooth fairy is really a tooth angel.  The tooth angel's job is to take all the teeth back to God because he wants them all in heaven! Well, it sounds good to me.  Who knows, maybe God could use all the teeth at the "pearly gates"! 

This week was also the first day of school for Justin and Camron.  Justin is entering his sophmore year in high school and Camron started 1st grade at the "big" elementary school. 

 And finally, tomorrow will be the day that our oldest son leaves home for college.  He has been packing all week and taking care of last minute issues before moving.  Even though he will only be an hour away from home, it is a roller coaster of emotions for us.  We are excited for him as he starts this new adventure in life but at the same time, we fight back tears as we think about how our daily lives are going to change with him not sitting at the dinner table, playing the wii with Camo, throwing the baseball and arguing with Justin (lol) , or just sitting in the living room hanging out with his parents.  We pray for God's love, mercy, grace, guidance, wisdom and comfort as Ryan spreads his wings and departs from our "nest".  Our oldest "eaglet" is spreading his wings and about to take flight into this world.  Isaiah 40:31 "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." 

I know it sounds crazy and abnormal to hear of a family that has one son in elementary school, one son in high school and one son in college, but Rodney and I are blessed beyond imagination and our cup overflows!!  Thank you Lord for this life of mountains and valleys You are blessing us with!!
