Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Recap

I just found the coolest feature on foxsports web sight.  I watched live action stats of the White Sox-Tigers game.  Every 5 seconds the screen refreshed and I was completely up-to-date!  Way too cool.  Being techno challenged that feature has eluded me in the past.  GO WHITE SOX!!  BEAT THE TWINS TOMORROW & WIN THE DIVISION!!!  (Yes, I meant to yell).

Joel is off in California again and the kids and I soldier on.  I got the dirt spread over Karra’s flower beds in anticipation of the rain they swear is coming tonight.  I put down some more chicken litter & it was stinky!  Please, let it rain.  

Kristen had a wonderful birthday party.  All 5 of her guests came along with 5 parents and 4 siblings.  We had a great cookout and for the first time in the history of birthdays at our house, there was no cake left 2 days later.  We’re usually eating birthday cake for a week.

I had decided to do sack races for her "hoedown".  Instead of going to the feed store (another errand in an already way too busy week), I bought laundry sacks at the Dollar Store.  They started ripping apart on the first heat!!  By the time we had two finalists for the race – we only had one bag.  Ok, pick a number!!!   We had some stiff competition for the watermelon roll.  (I was going to do a pumpkin, but couldn’t justify spending $5 apiece on pumpkins that I wouldn’t use again since we don’t make jack-o-lanterns – so we used the watermelon from the garden.  By the way, we ate that watermelon tonight and it was really, really good!)  Again, we had a tie and had to pick a number.  Even pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey was close!  Such competition!  We rarely entertain outside of family, so this was a real adventure.  Poor Joel was so tired, that he went to bed early!

Everyone was still saying at church on Sunday how much fun they’d had and what a good time it was.  It was nice to visit with people from our church and get to know Kristen’s friends’ parents a little better.   When Caroline walked into their Mpact class on Sunday morning, she started right off with:  "I got to hold a chicken!"  Needless to say, the chickens were quite a hit!  I was afraid they’d quit laying, but they took it all in stride.  We got 6 eggs on Sunday.

Now I shall bid you adieu for tonight.  I’m sure we’ll experience something exciting to report on in a day or two.  TTFN!
