Missing these stinkers

I am scheduling this post for later in the week, but I am sure it is going to be correct….I leave tomorrow for the Pacific Rim and will be missing my four favorite people in the whole entire world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Y’all pray for them and for me.

I am so thankful for a kind, caring husband who is taking care of the kids, their school work, his job and the house (maybe the house) while I am away!  He was my main encourager for taking this trip.  I just hope it is a great 11 days and that he doesn’t forbid me to leave him with the kids ever again. I love you, Josh!!  You’re the best.  Seriously.

Josh will spend the most time with this little ball of energy.  He will be going with him to work some!  And I feel sure Mack will talk his ear off and beg him for a trip to Dairy Queen since it is located right across the street from his office.  Mack, you be a sweet boy for Daddy!  Pick up your trucks, keep your hands to yourself, and don’t drink after 6:30!  I love you.

This little girl will be the first one to try and get in the bed with Daddy night after night!  Molly, have fun at school and don’t be pouty at school while I am gone.  Play with your friends on the playground (instead of sitting with Mrs. Walley!).  There are lots of chips in the pantry just for you.  Play with Ruby nicely and do all your school work, ok?  I love you bunches.

Ruby, my oldest little sweetie-pie!  Ruby, I hope your “Author’s Share” went really well.  I can’t wait to hear all about it.  Help Daddy around the house…you are the oldest and can listen and be a good example for Molly and Mack.  Don’t forget to brush your teeth.  Help Molly remember to put pj’s in the drawer and dirty clothes in the hamper, ok?  And don’t forget to put back all the books you pull out, but keep reading!  I miss you and love you lots.

  2. I know you are enjoying your trip and missing your family. Isn’t it strange how you can do both. You and Josh are in our prayers. Come home safely and with wonderful inspirations. I love you Kristy and I am so proud of you!!!!

  3. AWW! What a sweet, sweet post! It made me cry!! What a wonderful, godly woman you are! I love you so much! We are praying for you and all the other great ladies and Josh and the kids too! I can’t wait to hear all about your trip. 🙂

  4. Hey, Josh> I am at a place where I can leave a message, but not on Shana’s email right now…we leave in a bit for the plane for the retreat. I miss you horribly, but I am definitely learning a lot and know God is teaching me stuff…not able to verbalize it all, but I am thankful for all that is going on within. Love you. Please hug the kids for me. Let’s plan for dinner out Friday and make sure the air conditioner is on 60 when I walk in the door. I have never been so sweaty for so many days in all of my life.

  5. I had to wait to comment. Waiting on what I was not sure. I have been praying for your safe return when I stopped and listened ……and heard that I needed to pray that you and your group would accomplish what God wanted accomplished. I do pray for your safety but I know He has the whole world in his hands and that includes you. Keep up the good work and we will see and hug you soon. I love you.
