We just had the most crazy storms the past three hours, there is flooding around the area, lots of wind damage, multiple cloud to ground lighting strikes. Someone lost the roof off of their 3 car garage due to a microburst...very Thankful for a house and that the storms have stopped and we have power, many don't.

Thanks Erika and thanks for being here. That villa was great, we are so excited to return. We have NOT made the calendar yet, although we have talked about is several times. Maybe we can get to it this weekend, we really will be back before we know it.

Bill and I are on the road to a marriage retreat in Gulf Shores so I will be having to catch up later! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!
Thanks for your email, I WILL answer it before you get back. I am so excited about your marriage retreat, I think that is fabulous! I have always wanted to do that, I think it would be such a growing experience. So thrilled you have the opportunity to enjoy that together especially before Bill is deployed!

Tink...when are you coming through NC? I'm 4 hours from Judy. Would be great if we could all gather for a dis meet if noting but for lunch or dinner.
Thank you Allyson! It is so nice to have people who support us and are truly excited for us. I wish you were going to be in Florida too, you had to miss your anniversary in Florida last year as well. Praying DH is doing well.

We should do a DISmeet and meet up half way someday...that would be fun!


Prayer Warriors, I need help. We have one of our own that is struggling. She has been in crisis for a long time and needs more than I can give her.

Potty training ... again, I don't miss those days. I hope it all goes smoothly for you as well and that you are able to report back it went quickly!
Don't get me wrong I am a little jealous (just because I want to go with you )!! But my excitement for your family out weighs my jealously. I also know that I've had some really great trips these last few months that I wasn't expecting so I'm good. Sounds like shifts fill up fast because it's such a great place to volunteer at. If I can ever get back to Florida you can bet I'll be spending some time volunteering too!! Hope your able to work it out so you can be there to volunteer.

Yeah not looking forward to the potty training but he is 2 1/2 and asking to use the potty. Of course he's always asking when we aren't at home and the other 2 are saying they have to go!! I'm only waiting until we get home because I just don't want to be dealing with it when we'll be sharing 2 bathrooms with over 20 people!!

Prayer Warriors, I need help. We have one of our own that is struggling. She has been in crisis for a long time and needs more than I can give her.
Glad you guys are safe and have power!!

Prayers for everyone who needs them. Especially the one who really needs it.


For anyone that remembers the crying fit I had to deal with in January/February with Sarah when it came time to be dropped off for school and her reward for no more crying was a Sofia the First dress. Well I was finally able to fulfill that promise!! I would literally check Disney shopping daily to see if they had her size or the dress. I was stalking our local stores (calling weekly!!) and finally about a week ago I was able to order it online!!! It came in today and she loves it!!! Here she is:

I just noticed you had a new trip report and had to join in. I am so happy that you are going back to Florida. That is wonderful.

Popping on to add my prayers. Would share the view from our balcony, but need to figure out how to upload from my phone. Last night's session was really good. Looking forward to today's. So blessed the Navy chaplain corps offers this paid for!

I want to thank everyone for the prayers for my father and my family about 6 weeks ago (on Judy's old thread), I am happy to say that he is much better after his fall and 2 areas of bleeding in the brain, he will never be normal but he is alive and more importantly, he is now living in a nursing home 10 minutes away from me instead of 700 miles away! He was transferred to South Carolina on Friday from Florida, I was able to see him today and he is so confused but knew who I am, its like he is living in 3 different worlds when he talks, blending in parts of his life from here, Florida and when he lived in Charlotte NC, shoot I felt confused when I left because of trying to follow his conversation but he is HOME to SC finally and for that I am so grateful!
