Lonely no More:)
And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. Matthew18:5

Sorry it's been so long......we've been busy.  I'm working 2 days a week at Dairy Queen, and subbing at the school off and on....and loving on this little man.....besides the normal laundry, feeding the masses, and trying to keep up the house for decency's sake.......maybe we need to just shoot decency! Problem solved. Ha ha.

Hanging out.

 Pretending to be dogs.

Ready to go for a walk.

 We made the big ones come too.

 A cool evening view.

 A couple of quick snaps before the bus came.

Sherman made these beauties, called Bee Hives, all by himself.  He's becoming quite the cook.  Pie dough wrapped around the peaches, then when they're done you take out the seed and fill it with some amazing goo.... called hard sauce.  Delish!

 We attempted to take a walk......Wren, Iley, myself, and baby Brentlely.  We came across a dead rabbit the dogs had left so nicely in the drive.  They were torn between horror and fascination..... and gagging.

 These two were running out ahead..........

 While this one bumped along in front of me....seriously hindering my picture taking.....but giving me a delicious kissing target.  We had to head back before we'd hardly got started cause the mosquitoes were trying to eat us alive.  The girls were so bummed.  They've both asked all summer to walk.  It's been too hot....and now when it's cool enough.....we have the little blood suckers to deal with.

The girls are both loving school, and doing well.  They have a long way to go to catch up.....but not as far as it could be.  Their teachers say they are both so smart, just have so much language delay.  They feel like in time they will both catch up to where their peers are.  I'm so proud of these little fighters.  I'm privileged......even on the really hard days.......(talking to myself here) be their mother.  Privileged to have a front row seat to God's redemptive plan.  They are precious, brave, smart, funny, creative, annoying, naughty, loving, adorable, repulsive, irresistable........all in the same day......sometimes in the same 5 minutes......but always always SO WORTH IT!!!  and SO LOVED!!!  .........and SO going to bed at 8:30 :)


  1. Oh, how I would love to live close to share in your walk time! The girls are growing by leaps and bounds, both so beautiful! Little man is darling, does his hair have a hint of red? You are one busy mama! I love the update!

  2. Vicky, I would LOVE to have you and your girls on our walks! Come see us!! The little man does have a tint of red in certain lights:) Thanks for being a faithful follower of my eradic blog :)
