Turning to Facebook

With school starting back up I have made a decision to discontinue my blogging. I don't think I can keep up. On a brighter note, be my friend on facebook and lets keep in touch.

Why God Made Children

I was having a really bad day and was upset and crying because you name it and it happen that day. Caleb saw me crying and said mama I am going to pray for you. He said Dear God please be with my mama and make her feel better. That has to be one of the proudest moments for me. As a mother I often think I fail at times but at that moment I realized I did something right. I have a 3 year old that knew to turn to God when he or someone else needed help. Let me tell you I was so thankful and I immediately felt better. Thank you Caleb.

Thanking the Lord

I am so distraught about the family who just lost their son tragically. Please remember the Holladay family who lost their son Saturday. The family has been on my mind all day and night. I can't imagine loosing one of my kids. I know this happens but to loose your child in the manner they lost their son is awful. I do wonder why this and why this family but I know the Lord will have the last say on the person who took their son away from them.
I sometimes think how hard I have it at times with all the screaming and fussing but some people would love to hear that again from their child. The closest I have been to loosing a child is when Caylin was giving a 50/50 chance of living and put on a vent. To see your child in that situation and knowing you have no control is the worst experience. When you look at your kids tonight you thank the Lord for giving them to you and give them a big kiss and hug and never let a day go by without telling them you love them. You don't realize how good you have it till you don't have it anymore.

The Little Things

Today was very tiring. The kids were extra fussy today and the day did not seem it would end. But to give me a break from the challenging day I got to go out and eat with some teacher friends. It was a nice break and relaxing dinner. I enjoy those little moments. All the moms out there be sure to make some time for yourself.

Today will be better.

Hot Summer Days

The days have been so hot that the swimming pool looked real tempting. After the twins went to bed Dave, Caleb, and I took a dip in the pool and it sure felt great. Anyone want to come swim?? :)

Each day in the summer I have "school" for Caleb while the twins are taking their morning nap. Each day we learn a new skill. I am so proud of him. Yesterday I introduced the letter A but we are learning the sounds first instead of the letter name. He could pick out the letter A in a book and say its sound. Today we went over our letter sounds and vocabulary and did math. He can count up to 21 and knows all his colors and most of his alphabet. I introduced patterns and he could tell me what was suppAdd Imageose to come next. He probably got 2 out of 5 but I was very proud of him. We learned about Adam and Eve during our Bible story and everything this week revolves around the letter A. He really thrives with structure and one on one time.

We are working on patterns. This was around 9:30 and we still haven't gotten any clothes on yet.
