Blue Angels Homecoming '09 Pensacola N.A.S.

I got Lance out of school early on Friday to take him to the airshow in Pensacola. We had a blast! Lance had the opportunity to meet an A-10C pilot, an F-15E Strike Eagle pilots, got to hang with the A.W.A.C.S. crew, snackin' on funnel cakes, and the biggest corn dogs you've ever seen! The Blues were amazing as usual, with all six pumpin' out 32,000 thousand lbs. of thrust a piece in yo face!! Can you tell I was psyched as well! We had a pleasant surprise seeing Pastor Fruh there with Nathan. He got me and Lance seats up in the barricaded area! Mucho cool!

Ahh Honduras '09

Day one

Love letters to the Master

Today has been a wonderful day. How oft today I thought of you and how honored I am that you invade my thoughts. Your sacrifice of death has given me Life and I am so thankful yet so undeserving. A friend loveth at all times and greater love has no man then he who lays his life down for a friend. You are that friend a neverending neverchanging, without drama, without complaining, a covering and protector. Help me to be more like you.
I love you and look forward to spending another day with you, in my thoughts, in my dreams and in my being. I am thankful as I can relate to the psalmist David as he said I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
Let my sleep be continual and restful tonight but all the while mindful of you.

Sweet peas. Ever seen them in their hull? Perfect little balls fit tightly together not bothered by each other or fighting for space, they each grow at the same time. That is the picture I get when I think of my children they are my little sweet peas perfect and happily growing together in the Kuy family and not trying to be better than anyone else. Knowing they are their own little sweetpeas, they have their own little ways and own little struggles but all are thriving to become bigger. I am thankful for God in my life keeping my little family of sweet peas together He is the hull that holds us together and nothing can separate us from His sweet love.
Love Mother Sweet Pea
