lots of stuff

Last week, Jonathan had to  get a filling for a tooth that hadn't formed correctly. The picture says it all.  He was not smiling and not happy to be in the dentist's chair.  It took Jason and I to hold him down and by the time our sweet dentist was finished everyone was worn out. Jake and Elyse said they could hear  him in the waiting room! The boy is strong and he hates needles. We are hoping there will be no more fillings in his future!

Last Friday, we celebrated my 40th birthday. It was a wonderful day. My family did an awesome job of loving on me!  And 40 is not so bad!! :)

I came across the coolest teaching tool while looking for ideas to help me teach Jonathan. I wish I had this when Jake was younger.  Jonathan loves cars.  He could play with them for hours.  What better way to teach him numbers than with cars and roads.  The numbers have been made into highways and he can park or drive the number of cars on each laminated card.  You can go here to print off the cards. 


I just finished reading this book.  Have you read it?  I really enjoy historical fiction and especially anything WW 2. This is the first book about WW 2 that I have read from a German's perspective.  It describes Liesel's relationships with her foster parents, neighbors and the Jewish fist fighter who is hiding in their basement. This book was not an easy never is when you are reading about war but it was definitely worth my time. 

I have just started reading Rachel Held Evan's book, A Year of Biblical Womanhood.  I'm really enjoying it. Check out what my friend, Mary Beth, had to say here.

This weekend, I am super excited to attend Created for Care.  It is a retreat for adoption moms.  The worship is incredible, the classes and sessions are so uplifting and the time spent with friends is such a blessing. I cannot wait!

 I am going to make these for breakfast tomorrow morning.  Yummy!

Charlie and Jonathan haven't seen each other since we parted ways at Washington Dulles in October.  This weekend they finally get to give each other a hug!  Jonathan lights up when we talk about Charlie.  I can't wait to see this reunion!

I can't stop listening to this song by Mercy Me!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Love this! And I'd heard that Mercy Me song before, but after watching this video of it on your blog with my kids, we started hearing it all over the place. Funny how God works! :)
