When I had this blog redone and had those handy little button things put up there on top, I figured they would help me stay on some sort of track with what to write about or post. Topics that are important to me. Home Making, Lady Proclamations (speaking my mind), Raising Men, and Great Books to read (because I hate wasting my time and money.)Somehow I keep swaying back and forth on what I post up here on this lil blog. Anyhow, one thing that is really important to both myself and Mr. Dunbar is "raising men."
I am not raising boys
I am raising men,
who will hopefully one day

This is what is used to look like. It was Mr. Dunbar's desk, when he used to work from home. But now it is my desk, because now I work at home. So I finally changed it up a bit, a while back.
This is the material I used. In the picture below, it looks like crinkled paper bags, but that is so not the case. Its a really nice woven fabric that just happens to be the same color as paper bags.
And this is what my desk looks like now.

Our Saturday dinner, we went out for Mexican. It was a fun night.
How come men never grow-up?

So as the countdown to the end of summer nears, of course we had to go to the beach. And what's better than going to the beach when your friends have their trailer there with a clean potty, shower, microwave, fridge and beds?
This was Bogie's first taste of salty sea water. (Please don't remind me what else is in there.) I could not keep him out of the water for more than two minutes to eat something. Here he's got seaweed on the face and he's still running in.
Group shot towards the end of the day, they still put board shorts back on and got back into the water even after this picture was taken.
I told our friends, next year my boys would just be staying the entire week with them.

Two nights ago he said it probably competes with the Great Wall of China, as one of the Seven Wonders seen from outer space. The austronauts could see what time it was.
If there is one thing I am learning about this marriage thing, it's that you have to learn to laugh. Even if all of your nice efforts to replace his taped together alarm clock receive a snide remark each and every time your head its the pillow.

I still can not believe its true. Sandals Church is going to have a place to call home.
Now granted, I know that the building is not the church. If you have ever been to Sandals you know that, we have been the largest church in our city without a building for the past 5 or 6 years. But it is so amazing to think that my boys will have a real classroom to go to, new families will be able to meet in a lobby and not in a tent city that always is subject to the weather gods, our engaged couples won't have to open up the phone book and start calling outside churches to rent for their wedding like Mr. Dunbar and I had to do.
Much has to be done still, we have to be approved for 13 acres right next to the building for the parking lot. (Pastor Matt encouraged us to email our councilman. I've included some links below if you are a local resident. )
Mayer Ron Loveridge: email@example.com
Rusty Bailey Ward 3: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't know who your Councilman is find out here.
After the service we drove down to the site. It's a huge shell. We prayed as a family over this site and thanked God for his provision. As were were driving around the building Mr. Dunbar was explaining to Monkey that we were heading to the new Sandals Church, because this is something we've been praying for and God had now answered our prayers.

Saturday we headed to a luau in honor of the daughter of some other friends. Lauren heading to Hawaii for seminary. (I wish God would call me to Hawaii.) It was such a nice afternoon. We were able to catch up with quite a few friends we haven't had the chance to see in well over a year or more. (Something about an MBA program, left the Dunbar's somewhat M.I.A, in social circles.)
It was so nice to see everyone.
We wish Lauren the best in Hawaii. (Even though I didn't get a picture of her...agh!)
What did you do this weekend?
