I have a lot to catch up on from all the happenings around here over the past month or so. It will take several post to catch up so hang in there with me. First, my baby finished his first year at preschool. It was well worth it! He loves it and has learned so much in one year. In May they had a end of the year program. Little man’s group was to sing The Wise Man bible song. He loves that song!  He did great. I really thought that once he saw us he would want to come sit with us but he stayed with his teachers. He did turn around to say “hi mommy and daddy.” That is the sweetest words to hear out of my baby’s mouth. He does it with such JOY! Our view was very limited so my pictures are not the best.

Thank you Mrs. Amber and Mrs. Shelley for a great year and I could not have asked for better teachers. God truly puts the right people in your life at the very right moment. We are so grateful that you are one of many!

blessings…

the C  family!

I am sure you have been waiting by your computer everyday wondering when will she write again! ha ha! Yeah right!!! Just wanted to give a brief update of what has been happening around my little world. First, right now we are currently in a relaxed environment enjoying some wonderful company while soaking up all the love. This is much-needed in our life after the last 6 months. Hubby still does not have job but has had 3 face to face interviews in less than a month. How are we hanging in there you ask? Grace my friends. We are so blessed to have a church home who loves us, friends who give us support when needed, and relationship with Jesus Christ that “surpasses all understanding!” Yes, it is tough. It has even at times been painful. Would I change a thing? No way! We are learning so much about Grace and God’s infinite wisdom. I couldn’t even begin to put words on paper to explain to you how or what  the last 6 months has done for my family. I could lie to you and say yes let’s go another 6 months but you would see right through that. Couldn’t you? No one in their right mind says bring on the tribulation. It is during the tribulation that we truly found out what we are made of or whom we are made from. That of course is Christ. He knows all! He knows at the exact moment when you need a rest, a helping hand, a loving hand, a rebuke, a phone call, a card, a hug, word of encouragement, or whatever it may be, HE KNOWS! I am so grateful that he knows. I mostly grateful that his people who represent his hands are answering the call when HE gives a nudge. Isn’t the Holy Spirit amazing? The more I grow spiritually the more I learn of the Holy Spirit’s power to work in my life. Jesus said he would send a helper and that is exactly what the Holy Spirit has been doing in my life. Helping, guiding, giving direction, protecting, pleading for me on my behalf and on and on and on. Please continue to pray for my family and the coming future. I know you do anyway! For that I am truly grateful!

Well, Little Man has finished his first year of preschool. It has been an amazing year. I prayed everyday for his teachers  and God truly blessed us with loving teachers. They had their end of the year program and it was so cute. I promise to post pictures later! I am not at my computer so  I can not show you the amazing things little people will do on stage.

A PRAISE to our Heavenly Father regarding my mom. She received good reports on her check up from last years health scare. Her hemoglobin was a 10.8  considering last year it was a 4.3. Blood pressure good, nose bleeds few and far between but still cautious about them, and no polyps found in her upper or lower g.i. Also, she got to lower a dose of one of her meds since she is doing so well. Thank you for loving us during last summer and through this year regarding her health. A side note, she is back in Austin for now. She goes back and forth between houses. Mine and my adopted sisters house. 

Again I can not express to YOU enough how grateful I am to YOU. Your support has been a main stay in our life. We pray a prayer of blessing for you and your family.

all our love…..

I thought I would play “catch up” since I am a bit behind on my posts. The week of Jan.4-9 was a tough week here at our house. First, we had to replace our plumbing system or should I say the entire P.C.P. piping line that runs from our house to where it connects to the city line. This was an unexpected cost but we made it through without putting us in debt. The company was here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of that week. We thought at first it was just stomped up but we soon discovered through the miracle of a camera lens we had a much bigger problem. We had 3 breaks in our line and 2 spots where the piping was bowed in the ground.

.

Next ,our son decided to climb over his crib 3 times in one night. He is 3 ft. tall so all he has to do his swing his leg over and BOOM! Needless to say it scared us and we do not need a trip to the emergency room during this “lean time.” Saturday we ran around town spending money on his bed rails to ensure his safety. Yep, we bit the bullet and decided to move him to a toddler bed W-a-Y before momma was ready! The first few nights were tough. We laid on the floor for about 30 mins. to make sure he was asleep. After, a few nights he did not need us to do that for him. We now read a book or two, say prayers, hugs, kisses, and say “night night.” He falls asleep in his toddler bed on his own. Occasionally we have to walk back in there to lay him down again but it only takes a couple of times.

Then we had a wonderful event at our son’s school. It is called Moms and Muffins! All the moms have breakfast with their children at school.  I have looked forward to moments such as these and I enjoy them so! Plus, we had a shirt that matched the event!

I have so much to share with you but I do not want to overload you! So, I will save the other happenings  for another post! God bless y’all and please continue to pray for us!

Thank you to all who made us smile by your sweet emails or comments made of supporting us through our decision to put little man in an m.d.o./preschool.

Well, again he did not cry nor was he bothered by me leaving him at school. He was so willing to go that when he woke up this morning he said ” shoe, mommie, go go go!” Which means lets go to school to play with friends! Anyway, he ran to the school door past the preacher and school director straight to his classroom. I did the usual hang the bag up, put the lunch box with the class basket, and gave a couple of instructions. I said “bye bye, have  a good day.” He smiled at me and went about his business. So far so good. When I went to pick him up he was sitting on his nap roll/mat looking very content and looked up to see me. He smiled and immediately came running while saying “mommie mommie, hi.” Just made my heart sing! So sweet! I gathered his things and tried to leave the classroom. He looked at me to say “no, go go go.” He wanted to stay with his teachers and friends. I explained how we would come back next week to see everybody. He really seems to enjoy other little ones just like him all in one place to play and learn.

Thank you to both teachers who made this mom of one feel comfortable and at peace. Thank you for being in my son’s life. Though it has only been one week, I know you both worked very hard and it is not an easy job. I am so glad that you both LOVE what you do. It makes a difference!

p.s. I don’t have pics yet…soon…

This was not an easy decision nor did we rush the process it took to get here. Yesterday was our son’s first day at preschool. EEEEKKKK!!!

Now, many of you know that I have taught/worked at preschool/elementary for years. This decision was very very hard on me/us. WE enjoy our son and value our time with him tremendously. US (hubby and myself) do not need “me time” so that is NOT one of the reason we sent him to preschool. WE did it for him! As any parent, you weigh a big decision very carefully. Each family has to do what is best for them. Some choose to homeschool. some choose private school, some choose public, some choose  ________(fill in the blank). Whatever each family chooses to do, I know we all show support for each other that is why I am sharing this day with you! So read on my friends to see how he did errrr..I mean us! =0)

Anyway, he did great! He loved it and acted as if he has been doing this since he was born. I cried! I missed him! Well, we missed him. Hubby took the day off so I could have that emotionally support. When we dropped him off yesterday, he ran to his classroom and immediately played on the little indoor slide. He did not even pay attention to us. I gave the teachers his things and just stood there for a few seconds. A little tear formed in my eye as I looked on our ever growing baby boy. We said “bye bye.” He looked up at us as we were closing the door and fussed for half a second. I believe he did that because we shut the door and he did not get to. He went back to playing. I could not leave the parking lot right away. I just sat there in bewilderment wondering is this really happening? Hubby started the car and we were off to run errands.

Later, much later or so it seemed. We picked him up only to find him resting peacefully on his new nap mat. We grinned. People/teachers began to tell us of his day. He tried to snatch a little girls cheetos at lunch. Of course I packed too much food but you just never know. Most of it went on the floor so they tell me. He had his first scratches, bumps, and little bruises. When he woke up, he smiled at us and said “hi daddie, hi mommie.” It was as if he was saying “thank you for bringing me here to play with new friends.”

We have been at peace about this decision for awhile  but to see it come into play made our hearts smile!!!

p.s. we hired someone to take pictures for us and as soon as I get the cd, I will post pics…..=0)
