Happy Heart

ImageSummer break has arrived! Friday was the last day for the kiddos – tomorrow is the last day for the teachers as long as I can get my room torn down.  We kicked off summer vacation with a rainy weekend – but between the rain showers we managed to visit the neighborhood block party and WeeMan squeezed in some corn hole.

The day was made even better when we were able to see friends from long ago and far away – they’ve been serving in South Africa as missionaries with Nieu Communities and are transitioning back to the states to do mission work in Boston.  Can’t believe how much their kids have grown.  Made my heart happy to catch up for a few minutes.

There was even a garage band

On a completely different note, I just read today that Xanga may be closing down.  That’s where I got my start blogging and that’s where some of my most heart wrenching and joyful blog entries are.  I was blogging there when we decided to pursue infertility treatments for our WeeMan.  Now I’m in the process of trying to figure out how to download and save my Xanga blog.  I can’t bear the thought of such an important piece of my life being lost forever.

  1. Had no idea about Xanga! I need to save my old stuff somehow, too. I started blogging there way back in the day.

    Looks like y’all had a great block party!

  2. sounds like a perfect family day, especially if there are hot dogs. . We did infertility to have our miracle son too. I empathize with you on wanting to keep those memories. I have a journal of each moment of the IVF procedure and would be devastated if that was lost.

    • My husband would be the first to tell you that my blogging was what kept me from losing my mind during IVF. I connected with some wonderful ladies that were also on the same path at that time and it meant the world to know that I wasn’t alone in the way I was feeling and the things we were dealing with.
      I am so glad you stopped by. Looking forward to getting to know you through your blog!
