Whoa Summer!

"August 1st? Whoa, summer. Where have you gone?  I thought we were friends!"

That was my daughter's facebook status yesterday.  Flown by? Indeed the summer is zipping faster than I am. Can I get an "Amen"?  Amen!  Our family had the privilege of recently enjoying a nice vacation at the Outer Banks in North Carolina.   I was beyond blessed to have my entire family with me this year.  My man, my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, along with my precious girls (all four of them...........did you catch that?  FOUR?  Yep!  Amanda is having another girl!  We just found out this afternoon.  And, no, that's not a pig you hear but that's me squealing with much delightl!)

Vacation ended and we were catapulted straight into reality.  My youngest daughter is preparing to leave for college (someone PLEASE pass the Kleenex and anti-depressants) in a few short weeks.   We have been trying to get our 'ducks in a row' as she prepares to leave.  Jordyn has served in our church praise team and has been our church keyboardist for the past six years.  This past weekend CCF was honored to have Jordyn perform a farewell concert for us.  In addition to my hubby singing with Jordyn, our niece, Sarah Burton Troutman, and her husband (Will) drove up from SC to be part of the concert.  Sarah is an amazingly talented young woman too.

In case you are interested, here is the video from Saturday night's concert.

That's just a snipped of what has been going with me the past month.  I'd love to hear what you are doing this summer!

Well, Becky, I've been "out of the loop" caring for my sick Daddy, so I didn't realize you were about to release another one from the nest. :o)

I would love to have been there for the concert. What fun and what a blessing.

May the coming days be filled with joy and peace for you.
