Change is good, right? Well, Nick is finally going into ministry. Back in the Spring, we began praying seriously about it and making a move and everything in preparation for it. And, finally, it is here! I couldn't be more happy for him! But, the disturbance in the calm that was within me has me troubled. Why can't I just go with the flow and not have it affect me so? And it's not like it's faith rattling turbulence, it's just a subtle enough of a difference in life that I feel the inner turmoil. May I ride this river with peace!! That is my desire.

The other change is Ashlyn entering 1st grade. What in the world? I've longed for this for so long and she has finally began the journey of full days away from the home and I must admit that it is different from what I expected. It's a mad rush out the door in the morning. And after surviving the whining and sibling rivalry of the other two all day, it's hard to have a smile to welcome her home where she begins her homework and then wants dinner and before you know it, it's bed time! All, I can say, is Labor Day Weekend should be fun at the lake with a ton of time together as a family!
