Never finished April, May and now there goes June....

I guess I fell asleep, I really thought I published that last post:)  Anyway, where was I...April flew by, May was crazy, busy with all kinds of school stuff.  You know all the things they like to cram into the last 4 weeks of school like teacher appreciation, two field trips, field day, and of course the ice cream social the last day of school.  That's just Jackson's school functions.  I have never been so relieved that school was over...not even when I was the one anxiously waiting for summer!!
Report cards were awesome.  All A's and B's for both boys.  I am so proud of both of them.  They had a great year.  It is hard to believe we now have an 8th grader, a 3rd grader and a Kindergartener!  We had the Duke Tip ceremony for Jordan.  That was pretty cool, and he was so proud.  Since school has been out, we have seemed to stay busy, busy.  Our friends, the Harmon's, found out they were moving back to Ohio a few weeks before school let out so we kept pretty busy with them the entire month of June.  Making the most of our time with them was a blast.  We will miss them terribly, but we know that God has great things in store for them in their new place. 
Ok, I am sure that I am leaving out all kinds of things over the past 3 months, but I am bursting at the seams with my newest news.  I am surprised that I have lasted this long without blurting it out.  As you know, Jordan has been at camp all week.  Centrifuge in North Carolina.  He had a great time...AND  he wants to be baptized.  How amazing to see your son off for his first year of camp as a teenager, and to see him home a completely different teenager. He will be baptized tomorrow.  I am so thankful to Josh and all the counselors that went with our kids on this trip, and I am excited to see God working in so many different lives.  God is really at work in our family too, and I am so thankful.  I feel as if I am witnessing one miracle after another.  God is so amazing.
