A metaphor and a prayer for the start of school …

Today is a big first for us.   Caroline went to HIGH school.  She was picked up at 7:15 and Bill said … “our daughter just got in a car with a teenage driver”!  I hadn’t thought about that, but off she went!  Brittany went to middle school.  One of her friends invited her and several others over for breakfast before they went to school.  They all enjoyed seeing each other and then got to ride in the car and…

A new creation!

A new creation!

Another super exciting thing that happened in our family this summer was that Savannah asked Jesus into her heart! Since family camp (where all our kids sleep in a loft together), Jacob has slept on the floor in Brittany and Savannah’s room.  I think he got so used to having people around him that he didn’t want it to end (sadly it will have to end tonight as they are all going back to school).  We finally took a mattress…

Dear Blog …

Dear Blog …

Hi … my name is Darla.   Remember me? I’ve been gone for a few weeks … Sorry about that.  It’s just that I needed to live some life to have something to blog about, right? And live a bit I did! Bill and I just returned from Lake Tahoe where we celebrated our 20th anniversary.  It was originally planned as a family vacation but then high school volleyball (eek – high school!) came into our life and said “no vacations…
