Ripley's Believe it or Not in Gatlinburg

There is a lot more to come from our trip to G'burg, but here is a start. On Tuesday, the kids wanted to go to the Ripley's Believe it or Not museum on the strip. Here is a pic of them in the "Big" chair. There was a lot in there I could have definitely lived without seeing, but now they can say they went. :) Now the kids are on their way with Mamaw's to meet up with Nana. Matt heads to his guitar workshop in Atlanta on Sunday and I am meeting the family at Lake Tiak O' Khata on Sunday for the Brantley reunion.
I can't believe there are only a couple of weeks left of summer.

Take care....

My family is trying to kill me.....

I am not going to name any names because I love my entire family and don't want to shame any of them, but..................

Halfway through my breakfast I glanced into my orange juice and this was what I saw. No matter what I have done...this is just wrong. I did not pour the orange juice this morning. There are only two other people who were awake for breakfast........Hmmmmm.

I am going to start sleeping with one eye open. Have a blessed day

Summer 1/2 Over

Today has been kind of an odd day. We had church and then the kick-off for VBS which starts tomorrow night. I stayed at church for a while this afternoon to help decorate and then took a long nap when we got home. We aren't having church tonight so I am thinking about buying some fireworks and doing a do-over for July 4th. Not sure about grilling again, but you never know. One can't have too much red meat...well, actually, I'm sure one can, but you know what I mean.

What has been up?
Thursday we got Matthew back home from Camp Electric. He had a great time and learned a lot. Met lots of rockers from all over the USA. Really funny to hear all of his stories. Now he is an alum so he gets to pay a lot less to go this next year. Yea! He got to hang out with some of the guys in Pillar and other groups and actually got to have Red's set list from the concert they did at camp. He also had them all sign his shoes. He was pumped.

I am excited about VBS. I am basically just going to be helping. I didn't sign up to teach a class. I will just be jumping around and doing the music, etc.

After VBS we are heading to Gatlinburg with Mamaw for a couple of days. She rented a cabin which looks awesome! Except, we were looking at its picture and there was a black bear in one of them. I guess I forgot about this part about the mountains.

I can't believe summer is half over. It has been good in a lot of ways and just surreal in so many others. Grandpa passing away still hasn't totally hit me yet. That was not a good thing at all except for him. He was suffering so much at the end. He was so special and is so missed, but is so much a part of who we are that he won't be forgotten. Grandma is being so strong and Mamaw being there with her has been wonderful. I hope I am that kind of daughter to my moms. I also pray that I have that same kind of daughter when I am in her position. Judy is such a sweetheart. The boys and Matt got to be with them yesterday to grill and hang out. I stayed home with sick Matthew and Claire. We didn't want to share our cold.

I am still not sure what I will be doing next year (job-wise). I am really praying about it. I know God had a reason for my not going back to my school, but I am still not sure what that is. We'll see in time, won't we?

Hope you all have a very blessed week!
