The pressure exhausts me and probably more now than ever. Ive tried to be super mom and reality is, there is just nothing super about me. I'm a sinner everyday and no matter what the outside looks like I need Jesus everyday if I'm going to make it through this life with joy. I don't find joy in throwing parties and having people comment about how fun it was, I find joy in knowing that people were able to fellowship with one another and build relationships. I don't find joy in running my kids all over the world, I find joy in watching them grow and learn and experience new things while given the opportunity to teach them about God in every aspect of life. I don't find joy in exercising, but I find joy in knowing that I'm taking care of myself so that I can be useful and be able to serve others. I don't find joy in cleaning my house but I do find joy in knowing that I am teaching my kids how to work and care for the things that the Lord has given us. Its not the visible act, its the heart attitude that only Jesus can give. What do I strive for? Man's praise or God's Glory? I know in my twisted heart that the first one jumps out way to often and yet my prayer is that in the end despite my sin God will get the glory for my life. Otherwise it was all in vain. That is what the Supermom title stands for in my eyes...vanity (and exhaustion...who can do that and not fall apart at some point...just sayin').
When I pass on to eternal life I don't want to go with a supermom symbol on my casket, I hope that people would know that I lived by God's great grace and that any accomplishments were not of my own doing, they were of a SUPER-NATURAL God.

I was coming home today and as I was driving down the street I saw Jay on his bike. Thinking "I wonder where he's going" I then saw little Ty Ty on HIS motorbike taking a "ride" with his dad. There they were riding side by side....just like a pack. It was one of those moments when you say to yourself "I never want to forget this moment!" It was the cutest thing! I immediately jumped out of the car and grabbed my camera for when they were headed home!

Kenna and I had a sweet sweet time in SC. The city was beautiful and there was so much to see but the best was that we were with our dear dear friends again. It was wonderful and I am so thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to go and spend 5 days with the girls that we miss so much.

I'm not sure how there was time for this major event in our lives this week, yet it happened right in the hustle and bustle of all the end of the school year activities....Ty Ty learned to ride his bike WITHOUT training wheels! GO TY! He literally learned in about 1 minutes time....it was unbelievable! He was so excited and the first thing he said when he got up this morning was that he wanted to go ride his bike. So pretty much all day he's been out there perfecting his skills and I have to say...its IMPRESSIVE!
