goodbye september

  • Gwo Cheve hospital fund is at 79% due to another 3K in the mail ~ again, THANK YOU!!
  • We get to hear Francis Chan (the guy clinging to the balance beam in a previous post) speak tonight at Crowder's Fantastical Church Music Conf. we are super pumped. Thank you for the tickets Skalbecks!
  • Tomorrow we head to Austin for the Together for Adoption Conf. taking place Friday and Saturday ~ anxious to share and connect with friends there. Even more excited for the dinner with friends afterward on Saturday.
  • Happy Birthday to Dad/Grandpa Porter - 60 years (not that) old.
  • Sunday morning Troy is happy to get to co-lead worship under a bridge in Waco.
  • Best of luck to Tara's little sister Tina as she blows up yet another marathon in the Twin Cities on Sunday. Kill it Tina!!!! We're cheering from Tejas.
  • Lydia Beth Livesay is turning 3 Monday ~ we'll celebrate her fabulously unique personality and party with her on Sunday after church. She sat on my lap for an hour looking at fun cakes and kept saying "that my cake" to every cake photo.  I went to order one she liked today only to learn I waited too long. They didn't want my order. Instead I will create something fabulous and creative using the skills I don't possess sometime in the middle of the night Saturday.
  • We're finally reading books other than parenting books (not because we learned it all) ... finished A Grace Disguised  and really liked it. Now we're reading: The Hole in our Gospel and When Helping Hurts  - both are proving to be good/informative/thought-provoking reads. 
  • Have a great weekend.
