Awww, Sarah, you shouldn't have! Thank you for the pics, especially because I have no idea how you did it. I'm not particularly computer savvy.
As I said, I'm leaving, but only this house. We're moving to a smaller house for a year (at the most two) and selling this one in order to climb out of debt. I'd do almost anything to get out of debt; and it's so easy to get into. We'd also be able to pay off some on our cars (maybe even pay Jon's off completely!). There are a couple that we're thinking about, all owned by the church. There's one that I'd prefer over the other, but I'll do whatever it takes.
I have to confess I'm far from the best teacher. Josh (one of the guys I work w/ and the new "head" of the camp) took me aside yesterday and today and had to talk to me. Today, he had to talk to me about being short with the kids and seeming to be stressed. It's not necessarily that I'm stressed, just tired. Also, I've really gotten slack on reading my Bible every day and praying. So I just don't have what it takes to watch these kids. And I know it won't get better until I give my burdens to God. The other reason I'm stressed is because I never get to see my pooker (Jill--long story). But I shouldn't be taking it out on my kids.
I should really tell my canoeing story. We went on Saturday, but only barely. None of our teens except one who's only been there showed up. He came with mother. So we rounded up to kids (Daija, 8, and Caleb, 10), plus me and Jon. We had to have six people at least. Anyway, we went and had a blast. Caleb and Micheal tipped five times (the fifth time was mine and Daija's fault--we tipped them), and me and Miss Suzy (Micheal's mom) tipped once. Anyway, we'd canoe for a while, then slide onto a sand bank and relax, let the kids play in the water, drink a little. At one of these stops, I was going to throw Daija in and gave my glasses to Caleb. She changed her mind, so Caleb went to give back my glasses and our hands didn't connect. The glasses dissapered. That night, we had Ethan and Sadie (whom I love), and we went to P'cola to get new ones. We then had to go to Mobile because my prescription is so strong that they couldn't make it there. So we went to Mobile. But I like these a lot better than my others; the frames are a whole lot cooler. Not that I should have lost my others to get cooler frames, but hey, that's my blessing.
