Strawberry Fields (Forever!)

Today has been a good day, I admit, I woke up this morning dreading it, not wanting to have to do everything that *had* to get done today and worrying about how I was going to manage it all with the 3 kids underfoot as Troy had to work. Well, my sister-in-law decided that she had got enough stuff finished for their camping trip so she was going to take Anthony and Alexandra to the park! SO THANKFUL to her. She kept them for close to 2 hours and I now have two sparkling bathrooms, one shiny kitchen floor, a backyard that is no longer a jungle (well....except for the places that need the weeder to get) AND most of the stuff that needed to be packed, is packed. God is gracious this fine day my friends. I hope that you are finding evidences of His glory in your lives today. As I tell my kids, God made the sunshine and flowers for us to enjoy, to make us smile and draw us to Him.

The kids (yes, all 3) and I went strawberry picking the beginning of last week, they had SO much fun. Anthony would find a red one, pick it, come running over to me and ask "Can I eat THIS one Mommy?" "Yes Anthony". He would ask this EVERY time he picked one. I am SURE the two kids ate as many as I brought home with me! (But hey, they charge $13.50 for 4L, I figured they could eat some in the fields!)

Owen's first time 'picking' berries!

There are days when I dread waking up too. But God always somehow brightens my day! I enjoyed reading some of your blog...your children are precious, and it's obvious that you love them very much! Children are so precious and such a blessing from God. Keep up the great work of Loving your children!!!
