Oh and the kids are helping too:) 1. Healthyness 2.Good living 3. Mommy and Daddy 4. Not sick 5. Clothes and Food 6 Blue Blanket 7 Blue Jacket 8 sweet sticky kid hugs 9 Trains 10 "Sing, Sing. Sing" 11 Blue Bean Bag 12 God coins 13 A singing "Great is thy Faithfulness" while folding clothes 14 Z singing "keen up, Keen up" 15 laughing blue eyes 16 a's mothers heart 17 L concerned about people "glittering" (littering) on the street 18 Johns curiosity and strong will 19 a dedicated providing Husband 20a God who is Everything 21 some time of quiet 22 new friends and old friends This has been a busy day. kids still getting over the reminents of coughs. 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....
