So - it was 6:30 this morning - I was sitting outside with my half-calf Folgers (I know, very sacrilegious) coffee and my bible. I had just gotten back from a bike ride and was thinking about the day. The main thought was ---"Aghhhhhhhhhh." I wonder - is it a bad sign if you've been up for only an hour, haven't spoken more than two words to another human being, and already overwhelmed? I think maybe it's not so good. But then, about two hours later I got these pics....Kind of hard to not have a good day when these are the guys you get to spend it with....

Another month is almost gone - wow - how time flies.
I am running low on sleep and deep thoughts, or any coherent thoughts at all, are few and far between. But, I figure I can at least post a few pictures from the last month...

This is how the Thompson kids spent their 4th of July - eating loads of ice cream and being incredibly cute (although Micah doesn't look particularly thrilled)!

Macey turned 2 on the 14th:

Despite the girls having pink eye (yuck) and the three older kids having ear infections, the day was pretty good. However, one of her presents had some trouble during shipping:

Here is a great picture of the girls being girls!:

So - that's the short of it! I know there isn't much writing here, but we all now "a picture is worth a thousand words." So, really, this is a super-long blog!!! It's all in how you look at it!

We are leaving today for a whole week to a beautiful cabin on an amazing lake with an even more amazing family and another good friend! It is quite an ordeal packing for 6 - our van is loaded to capacity (and maybe beyond)! But, alas, it is done and we are on our way (God willing) in a few short hours!
I've been wanting to post a couple kid stories - so I figured I'd try to get those done before I go:

Caleb has been having a TON of dreams lately. Some good, some not so good. So - we've been encouraging and praying and talking to him about calling for Jesus in his dreams to help him. The other day he woke up and said he had a bad dream with monsters and stuff in the kitchen. I reminded him that he could talk to Jesus in his dreams and he said "Yeah, I know, but I just asked for Spider man and he came to help" Hmmm....sounds like his dream language!!

And then there's Kylie! She was sitting in the van the other day and saw an airplane. She asked "when to Caleb and I get to fly?" I said, "You mean in an airplane? I don't know honey." "No mom - in the air with our wings?" Wow! Ky - I think you can do anything you put your mind to! (Oh - Tyler, I told her to ask you how to fly)!!! Fly, Kylie, Fly!!!

Now, who could forget about Macey. Macey, Macey, Macey - who is EVERY BIT of a two year old! She has chosen to make getting out of bed "THE battle." You know - the one where she will be incredibly stubborn and test mom and dad to see how stubborn we can be with discipline - fun, fun!!! Well this was the scene the other night: She pokes her head out of her room and wanders into the hallway."Macey - are you out of bed." "Ummm....yeah." "Macey - what happens when you get out of bed?" "know" (meaning - I don't know). "Do you get spankers?" "yeah" "Come here" macey takes off running, goes into her room. I follow and say "come here" She looks at me with her very cute, very big blue eyes with her scruffy blonde hair everywhere and says "spank" and swats her own bottom. Pretty cute!!!

What can I say about Micah? Oh man - this little guy (and the big guy) has stolen my heart!!! Take a look at this pic:

Enough said!!

Here's to a great, relaxing vacation with great friends and many more stories to tell when we get back!!!
