Where does all the time go?

Well, I can honestly say it's been forever.

Spring and summer were busy seasons for the Root household. First there were lots of end of year school events that had to be attended. Then there was the fact that I became a high school youth leader at my church, that took my away to camp for a week (talk about a commitment)... then there was the fact that summer started and for the first 4 weeks of summer I parked it right next to the pool. Can't forget my 5 week trip to the Pacific Northwest (which by the way 5 weeks is a long time to not sleep in your own bed).

And finally we returned just in time for school to start. While on my trip I was convicted of spending to much time on other things than what God has called me to do. So here I am getting back to the basics and blogging again about how amazing my life is and what a wonderful God I worship!

Here are some highlights from our summer!




I do have the cutest nephew ever!

Wine tasting with Adam's Dad, bothers, and teaching our niece the ropes of wine tasting!


Don't I have a hot husband!

Adam's parents farm... isn't it amazing!

Mackenzie with the horses... if she's not in the barn or on a vet call with gramps... she's with the horses!

You guys had quite the summer! And Mackenzie in 4th grade...man time goes by so fast!! I am thankful for our day this summer and I think it will hold me over until the next time I get to see you:)

btw, I just finished "Don't Make Me Count to 3!" and it was so good. It really spoke to my mommy heart which is kind of rare for a parenting book, but we're really implimenting the use of scripture around here and it's work, but I really believe it was a wake up call and this is being obedient.

Take care and keep updating this page alright?;)
