Well I'm off on Holidays, just relaxing and enjoying my time. I have a lot of knitting to do. I have a sale coming up in November, so I have a lot to get done.
It's really cold out here. I was hoping for better weather that we could go out on the water. Maybe I should have brought my winter jacket. LOL...
I'll keep posting as the week goes on. Hope you are all enjoying the last bit of summer.

Jadden's friends from camp

Jadden, Colton and Travis.
The Mitchell boy's. These three boy's all play hockey together all winter and share the same school. It was neat that they could go to camp together as well.
Bailey, Jadden and Colton.
Bailey plays against the boys in the real hockey world, but here at camp, they became great friends.
It was so nice that Jadden had some great friends to rely on. He had a really hard time, but these boy's stuck to his side. Thanks boy's.

He's Home

My sweet boy has finally come home. I'm so happy this week is over. I knew it would be hard, but not the way it had happened (read my last blog).
He found some great friends and he's hoping to stay in contact with them. I can hardly wait to get his pictures developed, he has taken so much pride in the pictures he had taken at camp.

Jadden and his buddy Colton getting on the bus to head back to camp after hockey.
He's coming in to stop the forward. He really enjoyed his day skating today, because he's knows he's going home. It was great to see how much he had improved. I guess five hours of hockey every day could do the. lol
Saying good bye to his Friends at camp.

What a week

An update for you...
We took off last night to pick up Jadden from camp. He was having a hard time, and letting a lot of the kids down. So we figured we would get Jadden out of their hair that the kids could enjoy the rest of the week.
Well, On our way there, after giving it much thought we figured we'd try to talk and pray with him and maybe it would be alright. Didn't happen... so seeing he had the trouble at Hockey and not the actual Bible camp, we figured we would come for hockey the next day, just to shorten his week. It was at nine o'clock, so e could go home and get our work done after that. We spent the night at Sheldons Brother and sister-in-laws house half and hour from camp) and headed off to hockey for nine o'clock this morning. When we got there, the schedule said that his hockey started at three forty five... Sooooo
What do we do now... We told Jade we would be there, so we can't go back on our promise. We headed off to Winkler for breakfast and shopping at wal-mart. That only took up three hours... So we bummed the day away.
Finally when we got to watch Jadden play hockey. It was great... He had a good attitude and was playing really hard. We thought that we had finally done the right thing.
Not really...
By the time Jadden was half way through his last session, he brook down. He realized that he would have to go through another night with out us. NO WAY was he going to give up on us now, we had spent a whole day away from work just to get him through camp. WHAT DO WE DO?......
So I put my foot down. There was no way he was coming home now. We talked and talked and wiped his tears. We told him it would be alright and we sent him on his way. He did leave fighting tears, but he new it was time to be strong and have a good time. We got smiles and big hugs, and I can hardly wait to get him home tomorrow.
So our week of being alone and making the best of it didn't happen the way we had planed. We went through a lot of heart ache and I'm hoping he wont want to got to camp next year. I can't take a whole week off just to go pity my poor baby. was I sad, Yes I cried like a baby. But it comes to a point when you have to put your foot down and show your child is boss. I can hardly wait to get this week over with. I'm tired and I want to go to bed, but I have to milk my cows.

To Be A Mother

Why does it hurt so bad to be a mother.
I've been praying for Jadden this whole week while he's been at camp, hoping that he's been have a good time and being strong. I know that he's been missing us, but I was hoping that he could look past it and enjoy his time at camp.
I just got a phone call from the Bible camp and Jadden has been crying a lot. Apparently he's fine at camp itself. But when he's at the rink, he crys the whole time and wants to come home. So I don't think he has participated in any of the hockey events. I'm really lost as to make a decision on what to do. Should I go pick him up? Should I try to talk to him?(Then he'll want to come home right aways) I'm so lost... Soooo lost.
I'm sitting here on pin's and needles waiting for a call back from camp to make our decision, but I don't have a clue on what to do. I don't know what to say to that camp counselor. I don't know what the answer should be. Please pray for me and Sheldon. We feel very lost.

Yes it's only been a day and a half, but I do feel different with Sheldon having our alone time. We have taken time out for ourselves and we do anything that we feel like doing at any time. I think the feeling of being newlyweds for the first time in almost eight years is mutual.
I love taking the time out to talk with Sheldon. We have no interruptions and our talks have become very deep, like never before. I actually know what Sheldon is feeling and planning for his life goals. He has time to open up to me and ask for help or prayer and I have had time to let Sheldon know were I stand in life. We have been sharing our life goals and dreams. For some funny reason we have been heading in the same direction with out discussing it, but it's now a comfort to know that we are on the same page. I can now see were Sheldon needs prayer and support. It makes me feel so whole. It feels like I have a purpose in our marriage, more then just making supper and cleaning the house. I love the moment I'm in right now. I just wish we could be living this week without any distractions, like work.
Even though it has been difficult to let Jadden go away for a week, I can see that this was a plan God made for our marriage to become stronger then ever before. I can only imagine how much Jadden is changing as he's experiencing himself in a totally different way. I can hardly wait for all the stories that he'll have to share with us. I do miss him terribly but I also feel that this is the best thing that could have happened to us at this point in our lives.

A week alone

Well the dreaded day of taking Jadden to camp has passed. Now all I have to do is try to keep myself busy that I don't think of him to much. I know he's having a blast, so that's whats helping me get through today. He was pumped to be at camp. This was his first time, can you tell. LOL...
Sheldon and I have decided to take this chance to spend quality time together. We've never spent a whole week alone. I'm excited to see what the week brings. We feel like newlyweds... We really don't know what that feels like, seeing Jadden was a year old when we got married. I'm almost nervous. It could go really bad...lol...
No, I think that this week will be life altering for all of us.
I can hardly wait to get the show on the road.

Gods been speaking again

Some day's I can't fathom all the beauty that God has created. This sun set put me into a speechless aw as we where driving down the high way.
Looking at this sunset helps me remember how much God Love's me for the person I am. He loves my hair, my WEIGHT, he loves me when I'm tired and not looking so great, and when I've done something against his will. He loves me this much because he created me, just like this sunset. How could I hate something that I have created. When I look at my son a realize how much my God loves me.
Isn't it amazing how God can us an ordinary time like driving down a high way to speak to us?
