Life continues

   Well, everyone, I’m back! I’m sorry that it’s taken so long. So many thing have happened since I last posted that I really don’t know where or how to begin. So I’ll just let my fingers ramble a bit so that you can get a picture of what my crazy life is doing.

   First of all, we’ve left our church and are searching for a new one. I think that most of you already know that, but for those of you who don’t know… well, now you do, so you’ll understand future posts a little better. We’ve visited three churches so far: Northern Ridge Baptist Church, Good Shepherd Bible Church, and Woodside Baptist Church. I’m praying that God’s will is Woodside, but I’m also praying that He will change the desires of my heart if that’s not where we need to be. The whole family loves it, though!

   My birthday was pretty good. We were all sick that week, so we ended up saving birthday dinner and dessert until… several days later. (I don’t remember exactly how long.) Thanks so much to those of you who sent me gifts! I was completely spoiled this birthday.

   One birthday gift that I have really enjoyed – but that has also caused some major frustration – is a 4 gigabyte iPod Nano. My grandpa was kind enough to send me an incredible $200 to take to Best Buy for a nano. I felt a bit like I was wasting his money, but it’s what he wanted to give me, so I’m not going to complain!

   Due to Mrs. B leaving the church as well, Pastor Smith decided that he wouldn’t have anything to do with the Joy Club anymore. It was a huge blow, but God is still good. Pastor was providing transportation for most of the kids, so we went from 20+ to 4 in one week. Last week we only had two. We’ll see what happens.

   On Saturday my counselor from camp in 2006 had a birthday party. She had invited me, but Mom said I couldn’t go ‘cause she didn’t want to drive me there, then have to come pick me up again. Gas is just too expensive. So Margaret invited me to spend the night and go to church with her family in the morning. Dad was planning on going to Tri-City soon anyhow, so I was allowed to go! I had so much fun. Sometimes it’s just nice to do something out of the ordinary. Life can start to seem dull if there’s nothing new.

   [Quick clarification: Tri-City isn’t really an option as a church we might attend. I think that we all enjoy going there occasionally, but it’s just not the right place for us. (Even though Uncle Brian goes there)]

   Seth is still steadfastly refusing to be potty-trained. I’m getting more impatient with Mom than I am with him, sad to say. This may sound incredibly stupid, but please pray about it. You see, we’re all frustrated with Seth for his attitude about it, but I’m also becoming upset with how mom and dad are handling it. Potty-training a little tyke ought not ruin family relationships!

   This is long enough, so I’ll quit. But I’ll be back soon!
