A little of this and that...



Today was Madi's first soccer game. She did very well for her first time! I don't actually know who won. They don't take score, and I lost track. I am so glad she is playing a team sport. I think it such a valuable lesson for her to be learning! Everything isn't about "me"...priceless!!!


In reference to last my last post, I would just like to thank you all. I'm glad to know that's normal. Nathan used to do that, but I question everything Nathan used to do...and I certainly never saw my dad do it, so I don't have much to judge it by. We were leaving the fields today, and Kyle had to go sooo bad. I could tell that he wasn't going to make it. They have port-a-potties, but I am just not a port-a-potty kind of person. I can do lots of things, but that is one thing that grosses me out. So I just took him in front of my car, where no one could see. My dad walks up, and I told him that I had to let him go there, and he says, "well you know the world is a man's urinal." Yes, dad, I know!!! :)

At home with Kyle.Happy Baby!


This has been a really good week. The best I'd say we've had. I can't really pinpoint why, I just think we're moving on and adjusting to things, and making a life for ourselves. We have a lot to look forward to, and of course I love this time of year, so it certainly gives me a lot to be happy about.


Mason is doing so well, and that is a big part of why I am feeling so much better too. I wouldn't mind if he'd start sleeping a little more, but that will come in time. I'm fixing to start him on cereal, so maybe that might help fill him up a little more. That never worked with Madi or Kyle, but the 3rd time is the charm, right?


I think I'm just in a different frame of mind too. I'm happy. I'm content with myself. I am learning to adjust no matter the circumstance. I know that God wants good things for me. I don't know what those things are, but I trust Him enough to know that He's guiding me through all of this. And that alone gives me a huge amount of comfort!!! Life still has his crazy moments, but really who with small children, married or single, doesn't have those moments? We all do. I'm just the lone ranger right now, but I've got a lot of support, so that helps me too.


Anyways, well I have very whiny, tired kids...my favorite! Madi is begging me to help her draw a mermaid. I'm trying to figure out what to do for dinner. It's only 4:30, but by the time I get it done, it will probably be close to 6. And they are definately going to bed early tonight. We've had a full day!

The pictures of the kids are precious. Wonderful about the soccer for Madi.
