Back to School

No, not me.
It seems a lot of people are getting back to school.
Ah, but not me.
Again!

But this year it effects me.
At least more than usual.


Not only does it mean earlier mornings,
helping with kids,
answering questions from two teenaged sisters
(sisters who wish they were out of school too),
plans for the youth group,
and so on...

But it also means a
Goodbye.
A tearful one.

Sunday morning (around 6am)
I said farewell to my wonderful
Beau, Andrew,
as he headed
back to school
in Wyoming.

So sad...
long-distance is hard.
BUT,
I will see him at Christmas break.
So happy... at least... trying...

Well, now that I've gotten that out...
:-)
I wanted to share some funny pics we got last week of Andrew and me.
My Mom took them and here's the story...

We were posing all cute and sweet,
like you want to when you're courting,
but then a bug tried to fly up my nose.

It tickled.
It tickled my nose.
And it just tickled me pink, as I say...

I couldn't stop laughing.


So, Andrew tried to keep smiling as I went into hysterics...


I tried to stop...


And I tried...


I tried so hard that it hurt!


Feeling helpless and hopeless...


So tickled pink... so pathetic


Taking a deep breath...
(poor Andrew had fallen asleep by then)


*sigh of relief* 
Got it!!!

Later this week I'll post some more pictures we took earlier that day before my little outburst of inexplainable glee.  ;-)


Have a blessed day!

You two are so cute together! Bless the Lord for His perfect timing! Can't wait to see more pictures! As you go through this period of long distance, remember that God will give you grace for all you need. Keep looking to Him, He will never leave you helpless or hopeless!

In His Love,
