Why I Count It All JOY Wednesday!!

Oh How I missed this last week when my internet was down!
It's Wednesday & you know what that means??
Count Your JOY people!
Join my friend Angel in Spreading JOY today!!
And You should know this week is gonna be long since 
I wasn't able to share my JOYS from last week!
It's full of pictures...Let's get this JOY party Started!
Why am I filled with JOY?

I ran my 3rd 5k & beat my time. I ran it in 31:32! WOO HOO!

Matt was on a camping trip with the girls over Fall Break so 
Jaden & I went on a date. This is how we ended the night...
me with a Pumpkin Frap & him with a bowl of Cookie Dough Ice cream.
We watched "How To Train A Dragon"

On Sunday night we went to Grandma & Grandpa Thomason's in Stillwater. 
They have around 700 acres to fish...shoot guns & explore nature. 
We roasted hot dogs, made smores & had hot chocolate over the fire. 
Spending time as a family away from TVs, computers & phones was spectacular!
I will do a full blog about this soon!

Grandma Z. also took the girls to lunch at Eskimo Joes! 

That I have internet..ahh the simple things!

I was able to meet with 3 of my virtual roundtable PWs
 last week for the first time! YAH!!

The cooler temps...refreshing.

My girls have sold 3 dozen fresh eggs!!

This picture of my girls packed up to go to HighPoint.
A campout with our Jr. Highers at church.
So glad they are plugged into a Youth Group.

And finally this butterfly...

tons of them on my Zinnas while I was doing 
my bible study on my back deck. 
Of course I had to stop & take some pictures of them. 
Butterflies are amazingly detailed. 
A simple delicate creation by God. 
Once an ugly a masterpiece.
Kinda reminds me of myself.
