This is has been a great few days.

Coco asked Jesus into her heart on Tuesday my birthday at VBS. I am so proud of her and so happy that she has chosen to follow Christ as her Lord and Savior.

I found a workbook for her to do called "I'am a Christian Now". She has been doing her study each day along with reading her bible each day. My prayer is that she continues throughout her life loving Jesus and studying his word. As a parent I feel even more of a responsibility to guide her now. Is that weird?

We were super busy most of the week with VBS, work and life.

I have been battling sinus stuff all week too. YUCK I hate it.

Saturday I spent all day at a CPR/First Aid class. Glad that is over. I have to be certified in CPR/First Aid in order to take the Girl Scouts to a overnight trip. We also need one in the troop anyway. So I am good for 2 years!

Coco and I went school clothes shopping Saturday night. Thank goodness I only have 1 child. We sure helped the economy at Justice , Old Navy and Rue 21. I embarrased her at Rue 21 because I told the clerk that I was sad because my baby could shop at Rue 21 now. She got a jacket and a t-shirt there, everything else was too old for her. I still remember going school clothes shopping with my mom every year. That was really the only time we went on a big shopping trip for clothes. That is probably why I remember it so well.

Today we visited the church that Coco went to VBS at. It was a good service and the pastor preached a great message, but it just didn't feel like home. We are looking for a new home church and I get so sad because I miss our old church. It would take to long to list the reasons why we left ( or the plethora of other families that have left). It just makes me sad but in order for us to grow in our relationshipwith Christ we have to find a new church home. Just praying that God will guide us to where he wants us to be and where we can best serve him.

After church we went to Sam's. I could not believe the number of people there eating lunch and shopping. At least our lunch only cost us $8.00 for all 3 of us. My sister and her family came up to eat supper with us and I went through some of my Girl Scout stuff to help her get ready for her first troop this year. She is going to be the leader of her granddaughters Daisy troop. I enjoyed having them over, wish we could do it more often.

Tomorrow is back to work. Coco has a dentist appointment tomorrow to get 2 fillings. I hope this will teach her to be a better brusher. I have found her just wetting the tooth brush before. She has only had 1 other filling and she was 4 or 5 I think so she has forgotten but she is super nervous. The dentist suggested we give her a benedryl before she goes. We will try it luckily Scott is the one taking her. He can be better at not giving into her wimpiness.

Sorry I haven't had any photos but I have been lazy about taking pictures lately. I am still looking for something to giveaway. .

Have a great week!

Congrats to Cocoa! So sorry you had to leave your church, but it happens alot and it's so sad. A few left our church when our new pastor came in over little things that could of been fixed, and some had been going there all their life.....sad

Praise God that is awesome that Cocoa was saved! I will be praying that God will lead you to the right church. No church is perfect, but I'm sure there is a fit for you and your family.

So proud of Colby - how exciting! I will pray for you all finding a church home. It is hard but I agree with Rhonda, no church is perfect. I haven't found one yet! Love you!
