My favorite thing I did this summer was going to Idaho to visit my Dad and family. It was a very busy and active trip, we were hiking almost every day, mining for opals, and I got a ton of time to be around my Dad which means a lot to me as his health is not the best.
Ash isn't in school just yet, though I am teaching him how to write and sound out letters (I might be a Sunday School teacher, but teaching things like this is much harder for me). My husband has taken over teaching him counting and math as we both agreed that I'm horrible with numbers! =P He loves old cartoons like Looney Tunes and the original Transformers (I have a rule that he only gets to watch one show a day after he does a good job with his lessons) and has a penchant for robotics and strategy games. He's only 4, but I have to say that I love watching him solve puzzles and brain teasers. He's also loving LEGOS, which is awesome because I loved those as a kid, too! What about you and yours? It must be a real challenge juggling the schedule and care of yourself and three kids!
I love reading your blogs and seeing how the Lord has blessed you. You have actually inspired me to start looking for the blessings in everything. I think that is something to build upon since it will certainly help you through difficult times. We don't always understand His plan or why He did not answer our prayers in the way we expected, but we can always seek His comfort and count on His blessings even in the worst situations. I hope you don't mind me borrowing your blog format! I think it is something to help me in my own walk with the Lord. 1664 days ago
We are similar. I had to laugh when I saw your son's tshirt (Perry). My son has the same one. I think he has a sweatshirt too. Wow that's interesting being born without a thyroid. Does he have to do anything special? I don't know much about it other than my SIL has thyroid problems (weight issues). 1664 days ago
