It is just sometimes hard to get the creative juices flowing in this ol' brain of mine!!! As I still have this borrowed computer, I thought that I should try a little harder to think "blog post" as we journey through the days. The problem? Life has been normal, not much interesting to blog about!! :-) So, please bear with me especially since I have no pictures to make it a bit more interesting!!! Lol!
We did get the privilege of going to an ordination service last night in Cle Elum, WA. What a wonderful thing to watch as a young man is set apart by the calling of God, having the hands of the Presbytery laid on him in prayer. What a journey this young family is about to partake in!!! Many joys and many trials await this family, along with the blessings of God. As they devote their lives to serving others, pleasing God over man, and preaching solidly the Word, our family is committing to upholding them in prayer, and sending encouragement to them along the way.
Currently, we are finishing up a days worth of school, and catching up on much needed cleaning of the house. The sunshine is very enjoyable and is beckoning us to come outside and enjoy the fresh air!! (even if it is cold out there!!) Winston's buddy, Dudley, has just moved away and so he is very anxiously awaiting his little people to come and play with him.
Progress on baby is coming along very well! I can't believe we are already 19 weeks today!! Baby startles me often throughout the day as my thoughts are on other things and baby starts kicking! It is a most wonderful feeling and never ceases to amaze me that there is a life inside of me!! The children all enjoy "seeing" the progress of this little one through the ticker at the side of my blog! It is fun to see the changes in baby and to read about the length and weight of little one. Next week, we go in for our 20 week ultra sound!! I can't wait to get to see this little child again!!
Last Wednesday we had a first! Usually, when people see our family, the typical questions are: Are you Catholic? or Are you Mormon? This time, as we entered McDonald's for some dollar menu fellowship with friends from church, we had two young men comment on the size of our family. They were amazed that all of these children came from one daddy and one mommy!! His next question? Are you Amish? Hahahaha! We all got a kick out of that! Craig quickly asked him in return, "do we LOOK Amish?!!!" We all got a good laugh, even the young man!!! My children invited him to our church and his response was that he'd been out of church for awhile and that maybe it was time to get back in!!! So maybe, someday we will again meet our "Amish" friend!!!!
On that note, I must get busy. I hope you all have a very blessed day!
