To the Park

I actually remembered to bring my camera somewhere!  I'm so proud of myself.  This is our cute little park in Ohio.  You get to see how big the trees are here, and the beautiful green that we enjoy.  It was a fun day and good to get out and get some fresh air after three days of not.

Hello World

It's been a while.
I'm tired.
I'm sick.
It's raining.
But, I am loving this fall weather, and look forward to all the holidays!
The kids are growing right up.  Sarah's starting to scoot everywhere, mostly backwards and around in circles.  She devours anything I give her or that she can find.  Happy, content baby, and when Ang and her sit side by side, they are so close to the same size.  She is nearly twenty lbs. at six moths.  Her and Angela share most of their clothes, same diaper size.
Ginnie loves pre-school, and tells me all about her teacher's stories, and Bible stories she learns there.  She really loves  her teacher.  She is Sarah's favorite play mate.  Sarah just lights up when she sees Ginnie coming.
Hyrum is great at math and spelling. He gets great scores on his work.  He's not as passionate about reading on his own though.  The other day, he took out the trash with a big grin on his face without being asked.  He changed Sarah's diaper today like a pro. My boy is growing up.
Angela talks like a three-year-old now.  Despite her late start in really taking off, she is so cute to listen to.  I heard her say "Oh my gosh" the other day.  She often goes off to get things for people and says, "I'll be back, o-tay?"  Brought me breakfast in bed (her soggy left-over raisin bran), and then got me a drink of water.  She's so sweet and attentive.

I am so blessed to have these children.

Daniel is having a hard time.  He feels he is drowning in life.  I'm doing my best to be a loving support for him.  I'm more in love than ever before.

I am doing okay.  Trying to enjoy each day as it comes.

Those that Love Him

28 -And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God...(Romans)


My little girl is not so little any more.  Ginnie was beyond excited to start school today!!  She's now four and a half.  She loves to read, play with and entertain her little sisters, do workbooks, play ball, sing and dance, and especially just to have fun (in nearly every prayer she prays to have fun).  Whenever I start to get stressed or impatient, she tells me she loves me and gives me lots of hugs and kisses.  I couldn't be more blessed-she is a wonderful, fun-loving daughter!

Wow, my kids are starting to grow up!  Totally happy and excited about this.  They get to try out their wings in a big world~learn new things, meet new people, and have lots of fun!  It's like reliving my childhood, which I absolutely LOVED.  I'm so blessed to have the children I do.

Grass Wars

The kids were playing in the backyard today after church as I made lunch.  It was fun to watch them.  Each time they tagged each other, they froze, then when someone came and threw grass on them, they were free.
