week 22

The day finally came for us to see this little blessing on the screen as the tech scanned away. watching the screen i couldn’t help but  think of the two that went before us. What would they look like, i’d be pretty close to delivering the second baby i lost. Were they girls or boys or both?  I rejoice in knowing that they are safe in the arms of Jesus and that they don’t have to face any of this world’s pain. they are whole perfect. One day we will see them. Will you pray? Pray that as our due date approaches Jesus will be my strength, and that God gives us wisdom as to how to share with our little ones the miscarriages. WE know they have two more siblings and we want them to know.  We know that it is through our storms and heartbreaks that our children will grow closer to their Savior. I know that this little one will help them to heal and to understand perhaps keep them from being angry at God. Something i don’t want them to go through. God has a plan and is little by little revealing it to us. 

So we found out that we are adding a little male warrior to our family of warriors! I’m excited that out little Matthew will have a brother to play with as they get older. 

WE also remembered my grandma who has gone on to be with the Lord. So this week we made an angel food cake and celebrated two years in Heaven.

we had a great week! the kids had their end of the year field to Hershey Park with teh cyber school we have used this year. We  prayed for perfect  weather and the kids saw how God hears and answers. The day before and the day after would have been to cold to enjoy the water parks.As we drove to Hershey we heard of the  baseball size hail, thunderstorms and lightening, But God kept it from hitting the area we were at!

The kids and daddy enjoyed the rides and i enjoyed stepping back and just watching their faces, taking it all in. The kids met up with some of there “cyber-friends” and will try to keep in touch as we move away from cyber school and into traditional home school.

Mother’s day weekend my younger sister came for a short visit, we sat and ate Chinese food for lunch, and went home to enjoy chocolate covered Strawberries! My parents came for a short visit at the end of the week. My kids felt so loved to see out of state family visiting them. In between visit we continued with school, my hopes and plans are that we will finish up by Wednesday next week.

The weather has turned and this means the great clothes swap! the kids love getting “new clothes!”  Matthew enjoyed helping daddy mow the yard for the first time this week! He is going to make such a great big brother.  With the nice weather outside, comes the reteaching little boys they must go pee inside NOT off the back porch!

We turned of the TV for  a second week in a row, i love sitting back and watching them use their imagination, letting them build tents. when they were given their hour of T.V or Computer out littlest grabbed his computer, asked for Abcmouse and went into his “hide out”
