Family Camping Fall 2014

We finally took the kids camping! We have another AHG campout coming up next weekend and I will not be able to take Jace with me because my husband will be working.  So to make up for it we decided to take the family camping.  It was the boys first time to go tent camping.  It was a quick trip and we stayed less than 24 hours.  However, we had a good time (except for the fishing disaster) and we hope to go again soon!!  I will be taking the older two with me on the AHG campout this weekend.  We will be staying two nights! Hopefully we won't forget anything and hopefully the fishing will go a little better-especially since I am responsible for the fishing badge!!

Anyway, here are a few pictures of our first of hopefully many family camping trips.  This had also been on my list of things to do for years: 34 before 34, 35 before 35, 36 before 36 and 37 before 37....finally can mark it off my list!!!

AHG Spring 2014 Campout

So it's been a long time, AGAIN!! I have a lot of catching up to do.  I will start with our first AHG campout.  It was May 2014.  It was JoAnna's first time tent camping.  We took the 4 man tent, it was just the two of us.  We camped out at someone's lake house property.  It was nice because we had the lake, the woods, exclusion, but we also had the lake house bathrooms, and the screened in porch for food storage.  We went on a hike-which was slightly difficult for my out of shape self.  They had canoes and John boats-it was so much fun!!  JoAnna fell in love with camping!! I am so very excited.  I camped a lot with Girl Scouts growing up and loved it.

Here are a few pictures of our campout.  It was cut short but bad weather.  We had planned on camping out two nights but everyone ended up leaving late on the second night because there was a bad storm coming thru the area.

Wow long time

I haven't posted much in a long time.  I actually started a post back on January 1st and just realized a few days ago that it never posted!!  

Oh well. So I will go ahead and post some photos to update you on our year so far. 

December my uncle went to the hospital with congestive heart failure.  After a few days of not being able to get his oxygen levels high enough, the drs decided to put him on a vent-he was not happy with that at all. Anyway, he had many set backs and many struggles. He is now completely off the vent and making great progress.  We are praying he will be able to go home in the next week or so. 

In February I went for my first mammogram. My Dr said my insurance starts paying for it at 35. So I went for my mammogram. I was a little concerned when she took an extra scan on one side.  Then she told me since this was my first I may be called back to get additional scans but that was normal. So that was on Thursday and sure enough on Monday I was called and old to come back on Thursday for additional scans. I was told they saw some grain sized spots they thought we benign but needed to get magnified views.  I was a mess. I prayed and researched for days. I hated I had to wait 3 days to get answers. After praying I felt a peace. I knew regardless of the outcome God would see me through. However on the day of the scan I was literally sick to my stomach.  Thankfully my appointment was at 8 am.  After my scans I was informed the spots were gone!!  Who knows why but I was thankful!!!
