Last weekend we were celebrating the success of my husband’s company…
It was a great night! My husband has been blessed to work with some amazing people. They are full of integrity, smart, funny, and have fabulous wives! We had a fancy dinner, visited about our families, and enjoyed each other’s company.
One week later…we are headed to Houston to pick u our visas at the Colombian consulate. Why you ask?
Because we are traveling AUGUST 1st for Colombia!!
Things to accomplish in two weeks: learn more Spanish, clothes & shoes to get, 10hrs of online training done by Saturday, kid’s medicine to buy, tooth brush holders, memorize more scripture, 2 more back-packs, dog’s have to go to the vet, go on a date with my husband, meeting with the school district, spend time with family & friends, call to the pediatrician, fix brakes on the van, youth camp all next week, finish the plumbing in the kid’s bathroom, become a perfect parent, pray, pray, pray…
This afternoon we’ll get to tell the kids that we will be there in 2wks. 2wks and our family will be together. We still have to take time to pause and let it sink in: 5 kids calling us Papi & Mami, 5 kids to take care of, 5 kids to hug good night, 5 kids to chase after every day! Oh my goodness, these lives that we are blessed with!
Time flies. It’s up to you to be the navigator. ~Rob Orben
