Zoo trip

 We recently took a visit to our local zoo who's membership has been one of our best investments. The kids had a great time seeing everyone in costume even though we didn't dress up ourselves due to how cold it was in the morning. Everyone took the day as a champ and a great nap was taken afterwards.

Please keep our doggie Shemp in your thoughts. He ran off late last night and is still missing. We are praying for his safe return however we are worried he went to go fend off the coyotes. The kids are missing him so I would like him home soon.

It's been awhile

The last few weeks have been hectic to say the least so I do apologize for the lack of posts. Between the littles being sick, an ER visit for me, and weekly phone conferences with Randy's Ex it has been draining.  There is still however plenty to be grateful for.

...I was able to visit our church for a 1 day women's conference for preparing your heart for advent. I was highly encouraged and motivated. It was nice to know that we as a family have been able to reduce highly with the presents to focus on presence and our family has many traditions and rituals that other families are striving for. Our goal for this year is to give back a bit more and show the kids a bit more volunteer time.

...we have had to talk with Randy's ex regarding Mark's grades. We are praying now for guidance and hope that we can get him home and where he needs to be as he is struggling through classes yet again.

...we have been blessed massively financially as bonuses and a returned deposit couldn't have come at better times. I have been stressed massively regarding money but God has been providing as always and been reminding me to rely on him more. 

...we are very excited to possibly start with a new organization called Spiral Scouts.  Here is to hoping it may be a good fit for our family.

How has your week been?

An autumn poem

Yellow the bracken,
Golden the sheaves.
Rosy the apples,
Crimson the leaves.
Mist on the hillside.
Clouds gray and white.
Autumn, good morning.
Summer, good night.
