Sunday Check In

Both babies are sick.
:(
Horrible coughs and yucky noses.
Poor things aren't sleeping well at all, and neither are Mommy or Daddy.
Hoping this passes soon.

We got our first "newsletter" from Jack's school. It made me giddy. I'm so excited for him to start, and so excited he is going where I went to school!
I can't say enough good things about Grace, and we are praying that every year the Lord will provide just what we need to send our boys there.
Worth the sacrifice.

Such an emotional week around here....but life doesn't stop.
The boys are growing and changing, Jack is unaware of the events that unfold
 (although he has asked, "Mommy, what are you doing?" when seeing me cry) 

He will soon know something is up, and I pray his little heart is protected.
He is the perfect medicine.
These innocent little boys who know nothing but smiles and security will be a constant source of joy for our family.

I'm hoping we can drive to the coast for a day. Just to breathe that air. There is just something healing about the ocean.
And the Oregon Coast to me, is the best place for that.

On another note, my Mom made pizza last night, and it was the kind that I can have.
I am a pizza lover.
It's my favorite food and I have not had any since starting WW like 5 weeks ago.
And last night I did.
It was amazing.
I savored every bite hehe!


I got to go to church last night, thanks to my sweet friend Helen for staying at the house with the babies.
They go to bed at 6:00pm and that's when church starts. So I either don't go :(
or someone has to come sit at the house with them while I do go.
It was sooo nice to be there with my family!

I love that on any given moment, the Lord floods my mind with the scriptures I have been memorizing.
It brings such encouragement to me.
And the best part is, they aren't just words I say to make myself feel better.
They are promises, real promises from God to me. To us.
And I am so thankful I serve a Living God.!


Thank you to those of you who have already signed up to bring a meal to my family after my Mom's surgery. It means so much!

 God is our refuge and strength,
   an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
   and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
   and the mountains quake with their surging.
Psalm 46:1-3
