I'm sitting at our breakfast table looking out at a sea of green--a lushness in our yard that can only be attributed to the huge amount of rain we've had the past couple of weeks.  In fact, our support group's Field Day got cancelled for today due to rain.  Hopefully the reschedule next week won't be cancelled because of rain; more is predicted.  Though we didn't get much snow this winter, they're saying we've already made up for the deficit for water, which here in the southwestern part of the nation is always an issue.  God is good!

Back to green.  Another blessing of our cool and rainy May is that the lilac blossoms have hung on and hung on.  SweetPea told me that they've been out so long they're kind of bleaching out from what sun we've had.  It's great...our grass isn't crispy anymore and everything looks like it's breathed a sigh of relief and perked up its collective head.

My VBS project is moving along well, thank You, Lord!  I think I might even finish before our deadline.  Woohoo!  The hardest part is done--the inital writing--and now I'm into modifications for the various teaching levels and coming up with things for handouts and coloring pages.  In case you didn't know, there's a TON of great resources on the internet for S.S. and VBS programs. 

Tomorrow is a special day in our household--my daughter's 15th birthday!  I can't believe we're already here, solidly into her teen years and looking at after-homeschooling plans.  Man, it goes fast.  She's got two of her dear friends coming to spend the night tonight with pizza, movies, and general hilarity while Dad and I hide out have some sweet time to catch up on us.  Maybe even a walk in the rain.

I'm thankful for the Father's tender mercies over this week.  There's just nothing like knowing Him!

    Ah yes, rain. We had a few rain showers at the beginning of this week ourselves. It's stopped for the time being. Too much rain makes me a bit nervous here, as we live in the valley (e.g., flat lands).

    Sounds like you are quite busy with your VBS plans as well. I used to go to VBS when I was a young girl, but that's been MANY years ago.

    Oh, wish your daughter happy birthday for me. I hope that she has a nice birthday.

    Well, this comment is getting long. Sorry about that. Sometimes I get a little bit long winded. :)

    P.S. BTW, thanks for following my blog. I'm glad that I "found" you. :)

  2. Sounds so serene there. We are "just" about to see our lilacs bloom. I can't wait! They are one of my favorites. [o=

    Wow you took on a big job of writing VBS material. It sounds like your going to have a neat one.

    Happy B-day to your dd and I hope you all had fun.

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

    We have been having lots of rain too, very green. Sounds like things are going well. Wow, 15, that's a big one. My daughter is turning 16 in August and is about ready to get her drivers license. Hard to believe I'm a mom to teenagers. I hope you have a great weekend. :)
