Birthday Week has officially begun!!! As most of you know I will be 27 next Tuesday, July 24th. Birthday week is something that we adopted from the Caskeys(thanks BAC). I like to think of it as a celebration of life(or maybe I just like to party). I kicked off my week by having lunch with some former co-workers. They are a great group of women and I miss working with them so much. The rest of the week consists of a few dinners to celebrate and a few quiet family nights. My 26th year will be hard to let go of since so much happened. OK had to be the highlight, but there were so many other things that happened: New friends, new family members, new love, new feelings, new struggles, loss, deaths, and so many more. I thank God for another year and for so much to celebrate as this year comes to an end and another begins.
Being a working mom is really hard. I hate to leave OK in the morning and desperately want the day to go by so I can see her sweet face in the afternoon, but daycare has been good for her. I feel like she has become a little bit more independant. I wish that I could stay at home with her all the time, but unfortunately that doesn't work for our family. A friend sent me an email about buying bows(thanks AM), and little did she know that it was going to have so much meaning to me. At the bottom there was a verse that really convicted me since my attitude about working isn't the best. Colossians 3: 23-24 says,"Whatever I do, I must work at it with all my heart. I am working for the Lord, not for men. I know that I will receive an inheritance from the Lord as my reward. It is the Lord Christ I am serving." I guess God has me working for some reason other than financial stuff or he would open up the opportunity for me to stay home. I think he wanted me to see that no matter what I do in this life, stay at home, work, etc..I must do it to the Glory of God and realize my reward will come later on. His plans are so much better than ours anyway, which he has proven over and over again.

We went to the Beach June 25 through June 30. O.K. loved the water as long as we held her. She really enjoyed the pool. Mom and Dad got some much need rest under the umbrella and on the golf course. We managed to avoid getting sunburned, thanks to SPF 50. We went with my mom and dad, sister, and neice. We had a great time. CPW really enjoyed herself this year and loved going out into the ocean. Here are a few pictures from our trip.
Who thought that I would finally create a blog? I finally gave in to the pressure from all the other bloggers I know. CTW says that I look like Doogie Howser as I type this post. How many of you remember Doogie ? I hope this site will help keep everyone updated as to what the Wells Family is doing these days. Mainly we change diapers and feed OK. I hope you enjoy.
