Thanks for all your support this past week. We’ve received two letters from Collin and he is doing great! It was a huge blessing to have this cute couple waiting for him when he got off the airplane:
We were able to get this photo almost immediately thanks to our neighbors being best friends with these kind people. What a tender mercy!
My sweet friend gave me this necklace that I’ve been wearing nonstop. It’s Collin’s birthstone and the year he will return. I love it–I feel so close to him when I wear it!
Steve has something big going on in his life! He got an accounting degree many years ago but now he is a full-time student again at a local university. He plans to get a business degree and teaching certificate so he can teach high school. I’m super proud of him! This is no small feat. For one of his classes, he had to create a video. He just posted the one he made on YouTube. It’s a tribute to Collin. You can go here to watch it. I need a tissue every time I see it. Great job, Steve!
Summer is in full swing! Tomorrow Brecken and I go to a church youth conference for three days with around 250 14-17 year olds in our area. We will then join our family for our annual Lake Powell trip and return home at the end of next week.
One very strict family rule that we have is to ALWAYS buy lemonade from a kid. My kids and I have learned to love warm lemonade! Here are two photos that I snapped in the past few days that just makes me happy:
Hope you’re summer is sizzlin’ hot with fun. Oh–and I can’t wait to tell you about a new Project Life product and an innovative printer that I’ll be featuring on August 5th on HSN!
