We had a very, wonderfully blessed day!

Josiah & I played and took a long walk - on our walk today, we found out that a neighbor half a block away has two big ducks waddling around inside her front yard. Josiah was soooooo amazed, we spent about 10 minutes just talking to the ducks :)

After the very long walk we came home and he invited me to sit on the side walk with him and play "trucks"(in my morning glory- flower bed) OH well flowers can be bought and re-planted if need be, but those precious memories we built today were priceless!!!!

(I so wish we could afford for me to stay home with him!!!)

We sang songs and then he said, "you wanna talk about it mom?" (that's what he says when he is feeling like a big boy and wants to engage in a one on one "conversation")

We ate lunch together and "talked about it"
(He said, "I'm a big boy for look like daddy" - the noodle beard)

and then when daddy got home we sat together on the couch and "talked" about ducks & trucks.


We had a great day and this Friday, will be even better when we get to pick up Kayla from school!!!(she gets to come home 3 weekends out of the month) we miss her more during the school year - but we mention her every night at our dinner table & bed time prayers :)

This Saturday is the annual "Remembrance candle light walk" with Angel Babies(the grief support group). The walk will be at the same park where we took our family pregnancy photos*sigh*

I have a few appointments tomorrow to try and make sense of this huge mess with the Public Assistance Department & Josiah's day care/ preschool. Please pray for God's favor on this situation - this is a christian pre-school, they learn 1 bible verse a week and Josiah was doing really well this is his second week off & if this stupid county program can't figure this all out Josiah can lose his spot. We really don't want that to happen(if he can't stay home with mommy then the second best thing would be a christian curriculum based place where they pray for meals, for boo-boos, & family & are taught by christian people) PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS MATTER TO BE RESOLVED TOMORROW WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY; THEY CAN NOT CONTINUE TO HOLD HIS SPOT WITHOUT A CONTRACT.

I know I can count on many fervent prayers going before God to resolve this matter :)
Thanks to all of you


  1. It looks like you all had a great day. Josiah is just too cute.

    I'll be praying for his spot to stay open and for this issue to be resolved. Do they offer scholarships to where he goes? I don't know how it works where you are at but, here someone can sponsor you for preschool? Just something to think about or check into.

    I have been a stay at home mom for 6 years now and am going to have to go back to work also. I so totally don't want to but, if we want to eat, I am going to have to I understand the feelings about that.

    Hugs and Prayers.


  2. Last spring when we went to the cabin, it was duck mating season. A few weeks ago, they were all flying North. Seasons. Keep us posted about the daycare situation. I will be praying. I am so glad you look forward to Kayla. What a difference you must be making in her life too!

  3. What an adorable day with sweet Josiah! He is so cute!
    I am really praying for you.
    Lots of hugs, Erika
