If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. ~Matthew 17:20

LA vs. AR and LA is Winning

The need to be in LA continues to keep us in town as we stay another week and wonder if we will make it home for Thanksgiving.  Ok, let me rephrase that...we WILL make it home for Thanksgiving although we may drive like maniacs and slide in the door at noon on Thursday just in time for lunch!!!  I'm not going to stress, I'm not going to worry and I will not throw a fit.  It will all work out.  Yeah, right.

Here's your crazy week recap:

Cole wrapped filming Tuesday night on the show where he will be a Guest Star in seven episodes.  I wondered how he would deal with leaving the cast and crew who have become like family to us, but he did fabulous and always has a great attitude.  We think the first episode will air in January 2015 and then the rest of the episodes will be spread out through the year but as soon as we know for sure, I will definitely let you know.

 Spencer is rocking and rolling at home and I am amazed every day at his determination.  The focus right now is on all things college; essays for applications, essays for scholarships, shot records (what?), transcripts...makes me tired and I'm not even the one getting it all together!  The essay that he wrote today made me sob and I'm wondering if I am actually going to make it when he leaves for college.  Probably not but I won't think about that just yet.  
Thank you Skype for allowing me to see this face every day.

Spencer is also collecting gift cards in any amount between $10 and $25, for his Youth Advisory Committee at Arkansas Children's Hospital.  If you feel so lead to donate to his cause, hit us up and let us know and we will be happy to come and pick up the GC.  He needs to deliver them to ACH on December 18th. 

Snow hit the mountain on Thursday and even though it was a "dusting", it makes me wonder just what in the world we are in for this winter.  I mean, it's only November for Pete's sake!!!
The temps have gotten cooler in LA too, and by cooler I mean they have fallen into the 70's.  I find it quite humorous when I go for my run in the morning with shorts and a tshirt and I pass people walking their dogs wearing PARKAS!  Seriously, they could wear these coats in the Arctic and they would stay toasty.

We had some free time on our hands on Friday so Cole and I headed off to Griffith Park Observatory which is an amazing observatory that was originally built in 1935.  The views are extraordinary and we had such a nice time looking at the exhibits, eating lunch and learning a little history in the process.
Thanks to the smog, you can't see the great view.

We rounded out the week by heading back to Griffith Park today and going hiking with Michelle and the kiddos.  Griffith Park is the largest municipal park in all of the U.S. and boasts over 4,000 acres of trails, the observatory and even the LA Zoo.  Thankfully, we only hiked four miles today and were treated with a spectacular picture of the setting sun.

Cole has a meeting sometime this week and while we wait for the specific appointment, we will be moving back to Burbank Extended Stay (or BESA as we like to call it) until it is time for us to head home.  Our lease is up on our apartment and it has already been rented to someone else.  Nothing like a move across town to tackle while we're waiting for something to break loose.  But one thing that has been made abundantly clear to me is that there are lessons to be learned through all of these "adventures" and as long as we put our trust in God, we can't go wrong.

"And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in Him."
~Ephesians 3:17
