I'm addicted! Thanks to The Collins'!!

I have enjoyed reading all of your blog entries and thought I would start my own. It is such a great way to keep in touch! It is very addicting too!

Wow! The summer is flying past once again. The kids are going to start school here in just a few weeks. That is the only part about summer that I don't like. I hate it when the kids have to go back to school. We have so much fun together during the summer. And thankfully the Lord has given me a great schedule so I can be at home with them a lot of the summer! Please pray for Emma as she is dealing with a sickness that just won't go away. It seems every other week she has strep or some other sort of viral infection. She needs a lot of prayer right now...thank you!

We have just adopted a puppy from the animal shelter. We didn't even go there expecting to get one, we were just going to go and look and play. But, when we walked into the room...there he was. Regan and I looked at each other and we knew that little puppy was coming home with us. His name is Gunner (much to Melea's dismay!) and he is a German Shorthair Pointer. He will be a great hunting dog for Mr. Bentley. He is three months old and full of energy. He was neutered yesterday and you would think that would slow him down...but think again. I was up all night with a sick child and a crazy dog!!

Married life is so wonderful! I have the best husband in the world. God has blessed me with such a patient and loving man. He knows exactly how to deal with my hyper-activity and impatience. And...he loves our kids. I think he has mastered fatherhood better than some biological dads out there. Thank you Jesus!!

Well, I guess that is it for now. I would love to hear from you all!
