michelledebenport I interrupt this previously scheduled program (of shots of my boys and our adventures) to bring you this marvelous news: Aldi's GFDFSF baking mix is the bomb! (Do people say that anymore?) It made the most delicious waffles and pancakes! (What I could taste under the smothering of EarthBalance soy-free "butter" and maple syrup was delicious, anyway.) Their GFDFSF pretzels are very good, as well. I've not been an Aldi's shopper before, but I am SOLD now! (Speaking of "sold", we are in the 10 day option period with buyers on our house... hopefully and prayerfully everything will go smoothly and we'll close at the end of next month.) 2d
  •   michelledebenport Thank you for your prayers! 2d
  •   ragrimes Think positive and start looking at motor homes during the Fall/Winter sales even if you don't head out till next Summer. Remember we could meet up with you somewhere on the East Coast next Summer since our unit will be in Florida. Free babysitting, LOL. 2d

michelledebenport These two were so cute and getting along so well that I wanted to capture the moment. Of course, when I pulled out my phone they started to duck and hide... so, I may have bribed them with a quarter each to get their smiles. ;) By the way, we got an offer on our house last night- we're counter offering this afternoon. Would you please pray for wisdom and guidance as we negotiate the sell of our old house? Thank you! 3d

michelledebenport I'm glad our boys have @sdebenport for their dad. He's full of fun and willing to do stuff I'm not in the mood for (which enables me to sit by the pool and document - while staying dry). :) 1w

michelledebenport Driving home from visiting a new church this evening and thinking about the sermon as we witnessed the beauty of God's handiwork... The Creator of all things (including this lovely sunset) has intricately designed and created YOU. And, in that design, He created YOU for a purpose. - @MattChandler74 #abeautifuldesign 1w

michelledebenport I confess I like to take family #groupie shots. And I am not surprised anymore by Eli's poses. He brings a lot of spice to our life. ;) (en route to the #redbullairrace) 2w

michelledebenport I know Solomon said that the ears never have their fill of hearing, but as a mom of boys who have been in the car all day today with their Bop It, pretend sounds, silliness, tons of questions, and brotherly bickering, my ears have had their fill... #ohmy #canigetawitness #mobsociety 2w
  •   2bestill Yes! !! I might have said "oh would you just please stop!!!!" in utter frustration at the gush of words coming from the boys tonight. They said....Stop what? Stop the voices? Stop the jokes? Stop the goofiness? And i thought: "oh for the love of all that's Holy just stop talking!!!!!" 2w
  •   michelledebenport @2bestill Haha! I've SO been there! #juststoptalking 2w
  •   michelledebenport @2bestill I'm so glad we can always relate with each other! xoxox 2w

  •   michelledebenport @melkolbeck Yes, they were. :) 2w
  •   melkolbeck You are an amazing woman. I don't know if I could emotionally handle it. 1w
  •   michelledebenport @melkolbeck Thanks, but I can't claim that characteristic. ;) God gives His grace in just the right portions at just the right times. Thanks be to Him! 1w

michelledebenport First day of sixth grade! Since our house hasn't sold yet, we decided to go ahead and enroll Zachary in the school he went to last spring. They will gladly work with our travel plans if/when we ever sell our house and go on our US History roadschool tour. He's excited about the decision, in his own stoic, tween sort of way. ;) #firstdayofschool 2w

michelledebenport What a lovely place to visit... Can't believe I've never been here before! #BurgersLake 3w
  •   finnleesworld Do you have it all to yourselves? 3w
  •   michelledebenport @finnleesworld Nearly. School has started back here for most children, so there are only a few families. :) 3w
  •   gabby_watts_1_ I would love to go there some time how far away is it from the gold coast #longfamilytrips 3w
  •   michelledebenport @gabby_watts_1_ It's in the middle of Fort Worth. You can get directions and more information at burgerslake.com It's not very big, but lots of fun. There are high dives, low diving boards, big slides, little slides, and there is a trapeze into the water. 3w

michelledebenport Family update: It was nice to get away from the stress of selling our house last week. Today we met with a realtor that seems to be very well-equipped for the task of selling our home. We signed the needed paperwork and are ready to list our house with her this weekend. Since our plans to travel the nation are on hold a bit, we are planning on enrolling our oldest back into the school he finished with last year. This school, which is great for students with dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia, will work with us when we get ready to travel. We are looking into enrolling our youngest into a homeschool coop, as well as other creative and athletic classes. Hopefully we'll be able to get on the road sometime in the near future (if even just for a few weeks at a time)... for now, we're holding all of our plans loosely and trying to make the best decisions possible for our family. Thank you for your prayers and support! We're excited about our future, even if it doesn't look exactly like we would have planned it. ;) {#groupie from last night's welcome home dinner at Mellow Mushroom} #embracethegrain 3w
