What I Will Miss........

I was thinking today about all of the things I will miss about this hometown of mine......the only hometown I have ever known!

I will miss my friends......my two best friends that I have shared more with than anyone!  I will miss the closeness we have, the prayers we have shared, the secrets we share, the encouragement, the wisdom and most of all the laughs until we cry!!!!!
I know I am not losing that but knowing they are five minutes away is what I am losing and will miss.

I will miss you date nights, family dinner nights, summer nights by the pool and grilling out!

I will miss being able to just call my childhood best friend and meet for dinner and pick up right where we left off.

I will miss my kids running around this wonderful neighborhood we live in.  The one where I know at least two people on every street and I know they are safe!
I will miss the sweet kids down the street putting their noses up to the door to peek in and see if they kids are home!

I will miss BCA and Wee School and the familiarity of them both!  I will miss seeing so many moms that I love in the car line and catching up real quick before having to move forward!

I will miss Taylor's class and all the moms from his class that I love along with some great boys and girls that I have watched grow up!

I will miss having Taylor here every day.....even if he's in his room most of the time!  At least he's home with us.

I already miss having a church home.  We pretty much left our church a few months ago and I have missed a lot of people there and the feeling of being home when I am there.
I miss the excitement on wondering how God is going to speak to me that Sunday!  I miss being involved and needed.
(We do watch a church we plan to attend once we move on youtube on Sunday evenings and we can not wait to actually attend a service!)

I will miss our lovely mall!  OK JUST KIDDING!  I won't miss that!!!!

I will miss knowing where everything is.

I will miss this house.  I love this house.  I love the pool, the outdoor kitchen and most of all the fireplace outside!

I will miss seeing so many of Noah and Jesse's friends grow up!

I am excited to make a new life, with new friends, new memories and a new church but I will never forget my life here and the people that are so important to me!

All About Jesse........

Since December I have been homeschooling Jesse so that means he and I pretty much spend 24/7 together!  As hard as it is sometimes I wouldn't give this time back with him for anything!

Sometimes I could eat him up and other times I want to pull my hair out but the truth is I am crazy about this little boy and have been since that phone call saying he needed a family!  

Sometimes I sit across the table from him and just smile at those crazy 8 year old boy teeth.....they are crooked and big and beautiful!!!  
He's actually gotten a little meat on his bones this year too.  He is filling out!  Time to get a little more active!  He's excited to move and start raising animals.  He wants to raise a pig!  

He's a worker bee.  You give him a job and he gets it done!  His job in Alabama for Easter was to keep the four wheeler and John Deere Gator clean and boy did he!  When they weren't in use they were clean!   Of course he rode the four wheeler pretty much the entire time we were there!

He is obsessed with trailers and trailer hitches!  He told me just this morning that I really needed a UHaul custom trailer hitch!  LOL!  

He loves Legos and still likes to play with car and trucks.....of course with a trailer!  He's very outdoorsy and I can't wait to see how he adjusts to 52 acres and the country life.  

Momma's boy!
I thank God everyday for this boy of mine!  What a miracle he was and still is.  I wish I could freeze time as I love this age he is at!  



That is the sweetest face!  He was ready to show everyone that he LOVES Jesus!

He was baptized this year!  He was so proud!!!!
Beautiful boy!!!!
