Daily Life

We're just getting the essentials done around here lately. Blogging has taken a backseat, but for some reason, I miss journaling, at the very least. I want to savor these years with my children and husband in the midst of the every day humdrum. Fleeting beautiful moments today include:

-holding a sleeping Kade just a few moments longer and marveling at how little he is (compared to how he will be someday)

-laughing tonight with the girls while eating ice cream

- totally amazed at the appetite of DJ today...3 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bananas, and a bowl of yogurt (at breakfast), only to be hungry for a snack an hour and a half later

-watching Levi's HUGE smile while playing in our cardboard box "house"

-seeing Kade change his "hitting" to gentle pats and strokes on Levi's head when I told him "gentle"

-hearing DJ's prayer at breakfast about God's faithfulness

-seeing the girls' eagerness to help put the boys to bed so Kent and I could have a last-minute date tonight

My last blog post I've made some progress:

I've purposefully been reading to Kade, and he loves it (for short bursts)

My friend from Haiti has heard from her family and they are alive (although living on the streets)
