What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Getting Ready

The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house, all that cold, cold wet day.

And packed for Hawaii!

Two more days and we're outta here.

Thing One and Thing Two are busy packing their bags. That would be Abby and her friend Kaylee, who are coming to Hawaii with us. Both these girls are homeschooled and this is their senior trip. Let's just say they are slightly excited. The Cat in the Hat won't be joining us.

The three youngest cuties are staying with their Oma and Opa in the north Georgia mountains. If I were a good mother, I'd be nervous about leaving them. But I'm obviously not a good mother, because I'm not going to worry about them one whit. Staying with Oma is akin to staying with Mary Poppins. And Tom's sister Lynn and her dog are coming over to help her for a few days. So imagine being babysat by Mary Poppins and her lovely assistant and loyal Labrador retriever, all in the Hundred-Acre Woods...or something more fun than that.

Brad and Bella, our ferocious watch dog who loves to eat people, will be holding down the fort here. (Just a warning for you crazed blog lurkers just waiting to break in and steal all our worthless stuff while we're gone.)

I'm just looking forward to spending 12 days with my thug-wannabe honey in a tropical paradise.

Back to packing.....

Have a FUBU-los time in sunny Hawaii!! It's one of my favorite places.. BTW when you refer to us back home be sure and refer to back home as the "mainland" not the United States or states...they hate that!!!!
