BIG Mess

What a day!

A friend had given me some fabric as a gift (she also blogs check it out) and I was figuring out what to do with it. I thought a tote bag would be a great idea, both because they come in so handy and because I hadn't made one before. So I was online looking at tote-bags (for inspiration and instruction) while the kids where playing happily in their room :) ...Well i thought they where playing... but when I went to check on them (as we mothers do periodically - because silence isn't always a good thing) what I found was one incredibly BIG mess. Pictures can show you what I mean better than I can describe, but looking on the ground I could already see the evidence of something I knew I wouldn't like:

They had gotten into the baby powder and dumped it out all over the whole room (and the air, and themselves).

It looked liked a big white cloud.

But they where very pleased with them self.



So my sewing and research had to be put on hold (note to self: have kids in eye view at all times). And I had to begin the clean up to this Big mess and give baths.

All Clean!!!

At least the whole house smells very clean and powdery.

Home Sweet Home

It was a long night last night. The whole family was at the hospital all night with our son Noah.

It all started about 9:00pm. Noah had shoved one of his hearing aid batteries in his ear canal (I have no idea why children do so many ridiculous things). So we loaded up the sleeping kids and drove to the ER here in our town. And to our surprise, they made it worse and even caused his ear to bleed. At one point Noah's reaction prompted us to ask the doctor if he may have broken the eardrum; his response was that he couldn't see behind the battery (wasn't comforting at all). The doctor's suggestion was then that we could wait until the next day to take him to his ear doctor or he could give Noah ketamine (horse tranquilizer) and try again- we said no thanks.

By the time we were leaving this ER it was about 1:00am. But because not only was the battery still in his ear, we were now concerned this Dr. may have caused damage to our son's eardrum. So we drove to the closest Children's hospital (about an hour away). We had a long wait (as all ER's do), but the Dr. there had no problems and removed the battery in 10 sec or so. We had told them of the experience at the previous ER - so the first thing they did when the battery was removed was to check the eardrum. Praise God as far as they could see there was no permanent damage; there was a big scratch down the ear canal from the other doctor, but he didn't break the eardrum.

Anyway; by the time we were finally home, it was 7:30am. We were all very tired and extremely happy to get some sleep after it was all said and done.

The first Chapter

Today was the first day for the Holy Habits Bible study.

Mimi's lifetime goals are to know God and to become a women of worship, prayer, wisdom, peace, and contentment.

Each of the lady's from the group had to pick one as a goal for our self. Than find a Bible verses about that goal. I choose wisdom and here is the Bible verse that i pick to go with it.

James 3:17
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, [and] easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Summer Reading

This summer I am a part of two different ladies Bible studies. It is exciting because my children will be able to see their friends during the summer (their mothers also homeschool). And obviously it is exciting to learn more and grow closer to the Lord.

So just to let you know the 2 books we will be reading as a guide through the Bible studies are:
"Holy Habits" by Mimi Wilson & Shelly Cook Volkhardt
"The Ten(der) Commandments" by Ron Mehl
