This week has been filled with Milestones for both me and my family.
We set this crib up when I was pregnant with Taylor 15 years ago. There has not been a time in the last 15 years without a baby in the crib.
Liberty is 3 1/2 now and constantly tells people that she sleeps in a big girl crib, not a baby crib. With some, OK A LOT of coaxing and shoving from my friend Tami, We took down the crib, moved Libby to Ruby's toddler bed and set up a twin bed for Ruby. Both girls are very excited!

Also this week I finished reading through my entire Bible! I read 4 of the books twice and all the other books of the Bible once. I made it a New Year's Resolution in 2011 to read through the Bible in a year. When 2012 came I decided to keep going and so have completed reading through my Bible in a year and a half. This is something I have never done before. Sure, I have read all my Bible but never in a sequential manner and with the purpose of diligently covering all of it. It feels great to have done it. Now I look forward to slowing down again and diving deeper into God's word.

We set up the tent in the Family Room and the boys slept in it for a few nights.
We are leaving for our annual camping trip to Leavenworth tomorrow and this is the first time I have given the children a list and told them to pack. I have not checked their work, nor am I going to. If they forgot something it will be on them. I have realized that I am doing my children a disservice by micromanaging everything.
We are working on being more diligent in our chores, our attitudes and our relationships.
Finally, we attended a send off ceremony for some wonderful friends. Last night we prayed blessings on the Haechton's and I said good bye to my amazing friend, Stacy and her family. I have never said good bye to someone who was leaving for the mission field for an extended period of time. It was much more difficult than I imagined. Although, I am so very excited for their journey and for God's faithfulness and provision each step of the way. They are an amazing family and I feel so fortunate and blessed to have walked with them for a season.
It has been an amazingly wonderful and difficult week. See you next week! God's Blessings to you.
