Seventeen years and counting.....

Seventeen years ago I walked onto a college campus just like any other 18 year old, ready to spread my wings. From what I can remember, I don't believe I knew a soul on that campus and that was exactly the way I wanted it. I was filled with anticipation. Excited for the people I would meet, the lessons I would learn, the fun to be had. Looking back, I can't really remember what my expectations were of college, but that doesn't matter now. What I know now is that I was standing on the edge of one of the most important times in my life. I had no idea that within those first few days and weeks I would find the friends that would mold and sustain me for years to come. I do believe that our circumstances were unique and God knew that we all would need eachother in the years to come. The lessons I have learned through these frienships are countless. I have learned what loyalty and faithfulness look like. I have learned what it feels like to be carried by the prayers of true friends. I have learned what Godly encouragement feels like from a loving friend. I have learned that laughter truly is a medicine. I have seen the beauty through the ashes as these beautiful women have walked through loss that no one should ever know. I have learned about romance as we all watched eachother fall in love & marry our God given companions. These friends have always been faithful to remind me that God is good, He is love, He does have a perfect plan, He does answer prayer, & to be thankful at all times.

And, now after 17 years, after all the changes we have gone through, the friendships remain. And for that I am more thankful than I can express.

The first weekend of this month, 5 of us were blessed to be able to meet in Minneapolis for a weekend to remember. Not all of these friends that I have described were able to make it, but in so many ways they were there. As we walked those familiar halls and streets it felt like they were there as all the memories came flooding back. To those who were there, and those who weren't, THANK YOU for your friendship! Thank you for the part you each played during some of the most formitive years of my life. Some of my most favorite years of my life. Thank you for the continued friendship and support. You are each a blessing to me and I LOVE YOU!

i hate not knowing

Do you know what I mean??

I like to know. I like to plan. I like to picture in my head exactly how things will be. I like routine. I like stability.

Change isn't easy. Unmet expectations are frustrating. Stumbling along on shakey ground is exhausting.

But, today I choose to thank my God. My God knows the unknown. My God knows His plan. My God settles my restlessness. My God fills my emptiness. My God steadies me when the world around me is shifting. My God gives me peace when I can't make sense of the confusion.

Another first, but not really....

Well.....we thought that this was going to be Gavin's first soccer game. BUT, as it turns out, the idea of actually getting out there and playing is just a little too intimidating for him. He LOVES practice, loves his team mates, loves his coach. We tried again the following Saturday and the result was the same. He just watches and talks about why he just isn't sure he wants to go out yet. I think for now, we have decided to continue to take him to practice and skip the games for a few weeks. Sports are supposed to be about having fun at this we are just going to let him do the part that he finds fun. In all honesty, it is mommy and daddy that are the most disappointed that he won't play and it really isn't supposed to be about us, right?

September is almost gone!

I absolutely cannot believe that September is practically gone. So much life has happened in the last 3 weeks. Our little family of four took our first big roadtrip down the west coast. We enjoyed sunsets, crashing waves and tide pools on the beautiful Oregon coast, we hiked in a grove in the Redwoods and stopped to see a drive through tree. Aaron's sister, Kristy and her hubby Scott, happened to be in Carmel the same weekend we were there so we spent some cherished time with them. We went to my sweet brother's wedding in the beautiful Carmel, California. Sam and Ana had an amazing string of wedding events from a bonfire at sunset, to a perfect rehearsal dinner where we got a chance to get to know our new family, to a beautiful wedding day on the coast. My boys were the ring bearers with thier sweet cousin Shiloh as the cutest flower girl ever! It was amazing for the boys to spend time with all the aunties, uncles, Makka & Grandpa and thier sweet cousin. On our way home we made a stop at an old college friend's house where we got to know her amazing family. When we arrived home after 17 days of being on the road, we hit the ground running. Gavin had his first soccer game and Auntie Rara came down for the weekend. THEN! Gavin had his first day of preschool. This was a BIG day for mom. there you have it. Maybe this pace is normal for some people, but up until now, the Boeger household has taken a stand against being too busy. But, if you want to see some pictures from all of these adventures you can click on the link below where I made an album on facebook. You don't have to have facebook to see the pictures.
