Trust in the Lord

This week is the start of a new school year. Not only for the kiddos, but for me as well. I start my 3rd semester in Interior Design School on Friday.

The classes that I will be taking are:

Construction Methods and Materials
Building Codes
Commercial/Contract Design
Design Products

16 hours but thankfully two of those classes are online and I will still be working with Jenn Britt Design as well. Busy, busy, busy.

The kiddos started school Tuesday.

The yearly verse for Wake Christian Academy is Proverbs 3:5-6.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight".

This is not only the school's yearly verse, but has become the The Britt family yearly verse as well. In the season we are in right now, we are truly trusting in the Lord each day. This verse also reminds us of our dear friend, Linda Aikens. She use to quote this verse to our youth group all the time. I can still hear her saying it and it brings a smile to my face.

We are so very thankful for Wake Christian and that our kids get to go to a school that is teaching them to Trust in the Lord! Jake's teacher cried during orientation because she was thankful for the great group of kids that she gets to teach. Jake already loves her and we are thrilled with both Allie and Jake's teachers.

Allie 8th grade, Jake 3rd grade, and the banner I designed hanging in the elementary hallway.

Phil and I will be volunteering every chance we get at the school. Phil already serves on the Franklin Pierce Educational Foundation board, which provides financial assistance to families in need and he is the announcer for the MS boys soccer games for the fall. We know the importance of volunteers and we want to serve!!

....and He will make your paths straight.

Just a little weekend update

I am at my parents house this weekend in Wilmington.

They have a small powder room that needed a little update. They have mirrors with no frame, which you see in a lot of bathrooms. To update them is simple....add a little molding and ta-da!!

Please excuse the poor quality photos. I was using my iPhone.

Here you see (well kind of) the mirror above the sink before the molding and the mirror after.

Here is a close up of the molding my parents chose.

This is my mama and my brother-n-law. He can do anything and we are so appreciative when he does. We love you Boog!!
