The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation

Out of Service

For a while.  Ryland learned a good lesson about not driving fence posts in his sandals tonight.  He'll be off his feet for a few days as we let this deep gash heal.  So thankful for Steri-strips, Tea Tree oil and homemade salve.

I'm very thankful for older brothers who enjoy reading Tintin to our little patient to help keep him still.

And so thankful for my awesome nurse-Amy in Canada who gave us a duct tape tip!  We'll keep you posted, but I can tell you Ryland is pumped at the prospect of being duct taped.

Thanks for your prayers for healing!

All's Well . . .

In the nursery
and on the homestead.

{Thanks for praying for our stormy weekend - please continue to pray for our neighbors and near communities that were hit by tornadoes and wind.}

Last frost date is May 9th . . . getting very excited!

I'm dreaming salsa!

Pink Princess

I got to hang out with this bundle of sweetness one morning last week and take a few pictures for her third birthday.  This one of her is a favorite . . .

Happy Birthday, Lilia!

Oh where, oh where have my training wheels gone?

Oh where or where can they be?

A momentous day in our household -
we are officially out of training wheels. {sniff, sniff}

Dad decided Langston was ready for the two-wheelin' world and away they went, with much encouragement from the older brothers and Mom.

It's at moments like this that I am so thankful I can pass on street running duties because I have laundry to do.  I'm not sure how many miles the Dad of this home has put in on Official-Take-Off-Your-Training-Wheels days, but I know it's been many.  I will gladly snap a few pictures, shout a few words of encouragement and be tired myself just watching them run up and down and up and down and up and down the street.

It's not such a bad job waiting with band-aids and salve in hand for when I'm needed!  But maybe this is why I am still complaining about those 'baby pounds' that just won't go away after this little guy was born. Hmmm. . .
