A Glance back at ends tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be the last day of summer for me, since we start school next Monday. As I look back on this past summer I can honestly say it was one of the best summers I've had in awhile. So I thought I would reflect a little on just that. I love to go camping with my family and we were able to get the whole family together in May and go to the lake. We enjoyed a week of fun, food, friends, and family. Haley and I took our first trip to Europe and had a wonderful trip touring Italy. Being a history teacher for many years, this was truly a dream come true for me. On our way home, we got news that the sawmill had burned. Needless to say this was quite upsetting and after leaving the airport we both cried as we left the airport and headed home. I think we were so exhausted from plane delays and the trip that we didn't know if we were crying because the mill had burned or that we were just so tired from the long day. But I believe God always has a plan for our lives and he knows what is ahead and we can only put our trust in him and move forward.
Our Europe trip was great but there is no place like the good old USA.
I made several trips to Dallas and enjoyed shopping and visiting with my kids this summer. On July 4th, we went to the lake with the family and had a wonderful day of fun in the sun.
Looking ahead to the new school year, this will be Haley's final year in college. So this will be an exciting fun year for her. And yesterday Jimmy and I celebrated 31 years of marriage. My how time flies!
I am going to post a few pictures of my summer time fun!
God Bless You and have a wonderful week!
