God is good

Rummage is done and we are getting back to our regular schedule here. It was exhausting and fun at the same time.  I love rummage sales and organization.  My OCD kicks in triple time when it comes to these things.  The kids were awesome in helping whenever we asked including corralling Gabe.  Thank you mom and dad for helping also. Thank you to all of those who donated things to sell for the rummage.  We couldn't do it without you all.  Thank you to those of you who showed your support and stopped out to say hi and loved on us.  Thank you too those of you who just blessed us with your love and giving.  We are so blessed to have you all in our lives and so thankful. We made $1800!!! We used $1200 of it for Dave's first post radiation dentist appointment and the rest will go towards the next appointment.  We have no dental insurance and when you have neck/mouth radiation it does one hell of a number on your teeth.  This will be a long process but we know God is good and faithful to his word! 

We sold 46 pans of funky buns and a ton of brats and puppy chow.  
I think my kids ate the most brats and puppy chow.  Every once in awhile we would find Gabe hiding in a corner with a bag of puppy chow and powdered sugar all over his face..

One of the mornings when I was preheating the oven, there was a slight fire showing up in the oven window.  One of the kids yelled for me and checked it out.. I totally left this hot pad in the oven for some odd reason.  Let me tell you I have started a lot of things on fire in our stove but not a hot pad.  

On another note...
went to the Dr. yesterday,( a great way to start our  Monday...)
 2 of them are seriously sick with a really bad head cold and strep throat.  We got our amoxicillion and have been schooling and laying around.  These last weeks of school are dragging a bit.  Hard to get back on schedule after all these days off for the rummage sale. 
Thank you again for all of your prayers.

Hoping and praying for a great week!
