23. Fresh local eggs for breakfast 24 My wonderful husband faithfully cooking them for me every morning. 25 healthy kids 26 joyful, lively kids early in the morning 27 New life in baby chicks 28 a few minutes of quiet 29 a good steady job for Troy 30 family close by to help and bless the kids 31 much needed rain 32 good friends 33 the encouragement of other moms 34 the amazing ability of the human body to heal- miracle of God So since my last post much has happened Zach broke his arm falling off the playground in the yard. The full arm cast didn;t slow him down at all:) He just got the cast off last week and is pretty much back to normal. John is now, thanks to his JaJa, a metal detecting pro. He has been borrowing the Metal detector and has found lots of fun things, pennies, foil, nails...etc:) Anna is so cheerful and singing all the time. She makes up songs about God or about her siblings. Lydia is pink and sparkely as ever she says Anna is the singer and she is the Dancer so together they make quite a pair. I am excited about the once a month moms encouragement group we are having meet at our house. This week is the 2nd meeting. hoping it goes well and moms leave encouraged and blessed. We have baby chicks that hopefully will all turn out to be hens and give us lots of eggs later this year.

It really affects their attitudes when they are fighting off something... but we have started bible time in school again too coinsidence? hmmmm.... Samuel was up a bunch last night- at least every hour. Not sure if it is just congestion or just the teeth still working through. None through yet.... His latest accomplishment is climbing the stairs... at 7 months... a sign of another curious boy I think:)

So I decided to come back..... I made a new friend who has inspired me to start blogging again, if only to record these moments of life that are speeding so quickly...too quickly by... I am hoping it will help me to slow down the time just a little bit to be able to breathe and enjoy it a whole lot more. And maybe years from now when my kids are older and they wonder what life was like just a blink ago, I can look back at this with them and have something to say... I have been following a couple wonderful blogs lately, inparticular A Holy Experience which is all about recognizing and being thankful for the many many gifts from God in our everyday lives. One of my goals in Blogging will be to have a place to record just some of these blessings. The kids have been doing this with me as well. If I post some with a letter after it, it is something one of the kids has written.... So what happened today....
