I'm a survivor
I'm not gonna give up
I'm not gon' stop
I'm gonna work harder
I'm a survivor
I'm gonna make it
I will survive
Keep on survivin'

Cody has been gone since Thursday on a trip with our college kids from church. 
They went to Wisconsin to volunteer at Shepherd's Ministries
Thankfully, he's almost home!

We've survived.
We survived Carson taking a tumbling fall down steep cement stairs.

We survived more snow.

We survived all sleeping together in the same room...with the door locked.
(I'm such a scaredy cat!)

 We survived a fun outing to get donuts for breakfast...
...and survived some super icy roads!

We survived a trip to the mall restrooms with a little embarrassment...
I was with the boys in a stall and heard some enormous juicy gas noises. 
I asked Cloe if she was doing okay. 
She yelled back, "MOM,  THAT was NOT me!!!!"  Oops!
(sorry no picture of that one!)

We survived yet another injury to Carson's poor little face...barely!
McClain's knee met Carson's lip = lots of blood!

Only an hour to go...I'll think we'll

What a week, huh?

My dad worked at Shepherds for nearly 20 years. I used to tell people I grew up at Shepherds but they misunderstood me (haha!). Seriously, great ministry. Hope to be able to go back for a visit sometime. It's been 13 years since I was in Union Grove.

My dear husband has been gone since Wednesday...he will be getting in tomorrow evening. So far I'm surviving...YES I don't have 3 kids but I do have an 19 month old and I'm pregnant (who hasn't been feeling the greatest!) BUT you can make it!!!

Poor Carson! And poor you! Doesn't having hubby away give you a new respect for single moms? I don't know how they do it! I dread times when Chad's gone for just one night. I'm glad Cody's back now and can take over the daddy position now. :)

Wow - crazy week! I'm glad you survived. You looked as cool as a cucumber this morning - I never would have guessed there was even an ounce of stress this week :-) Glad Cody is back; this morning sounded great!

Oh girl!! You are a brave mommy! I know how tough it is when hubby has to be away for a little bit... its gets HARD to do everything on your own!!

Hope little man feels better asap!
