one. year. ago.

we have kicked off the beginning of homemade ice cream season in our house.
(just in case any of you are nearby)
first stop: vanilla.

one of my favorite smells in the whole wide world is sunscreen.
lately, it has been wafting in and out of our house.
surely, a sign of summer to come.

our lovely tree has provided so much entertainment.
it has been pretty windy here and we have all enjoyed watching the the newly grown bright green leaves being tossed around.

you know you haven’t gotten to the baby in time when you greet him post-nap and he is already playing with a toy.
which wasn’t in his crib before naptime.
i blame K.

the sunlight couldn’t keep from pouring its loveliness into our house.

“let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16

i think that he and the turtle look strangely similar.
thanks, lala!

i’ll just let you guess who has been the stinker around our house daily.

here’s a funny story that had me laughing

i couldn’t quite place why D’s shorts looked so strange to me.
they weren’t his shorts.
they weren’t K’s shorts.
then i figured it out.
they were L’s pants.
that D was wearing as shorts.
and yes, just in case you were wondering, i let him stay in them the rest of the day because really, what’s the point of creating more laundry?

B and i took D and K to the ER because of their high fevers.
i was wheeled into the labor and delivery department, all alone,
in a hospital i wasn’t planning on delivering in.
because i was in labor with L.
who had only been in my belly for 29 weeks.

how grateful i am that we are not there today.
and how grateful i am that the Lord has brought us through all of that.

i am committing to do this for my children

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
Jeremiah 29:11
