my baby turning 5 was fun, not too big of a deal
him starting kindergarten, got me a little chocked up
my baby turning 6, kind of brought this mama to tears!

the eve of H's birthday always gets me a little nostalgic, because it is the eve of the night i became a mama!  it was an emotional day, crazy long delivery, and the most elated moment of my life to meet my baby.

i can't believe he is 6
i'm so proud of the boy that he is
i can't wait to see the man that he will become
i can't get enough of his sweet heart
i'm constantly amazed by his mind
i'm trying to embrace that he is growing up, right before my very eyes
i'm praying daily for wisdom in how to instruct, direct and guide him...
how to bond with him, and continually show him that he is adored at home and we are thanful for him every day!

my heart if full... i'm so thankful to have this big 6 year old in my life!

cute story:
today for school i brought in cupcakes for  his class for snack time.  As I was leaving he whispered in my ear, "mama, will you come back and sit with me at lunch today too?"  Melted my heart! "I sure will buddy!"  Praying that he will always ask me to sit with him at lunch (even when friends are around), but knowing this might not always be the case, made me cherish this moment all the more!

Welcome to October

I don't know how in the world it is already October... and that I have posted so little!  Life has been CRAZY!  But five weeks from now, it should slow down... but wait, then it will be the holidays : )  We are in a busy season with Mr. Steady's work and the furndraising event I am planning.  I can say for sure we would not be surviving without God's grace for patience, endurance and perspective... and help from others!  Like today sweet Dina came an watched the kids so I could go to the eye doctor and to a meeting for the event.  Or Kathy having the kids and I over for dinner when Mr. Steady was gone.  Or Dena coming over to keep me company and help me take on craft project.  And that is just the love shown to us this week : )

We are all doing well!  And honestly I don't think the kids even notice how busy Mr. Steady and I feel, at least I hope not.  We are trying hard to soak in time with the kiddos as much as possible.  The TV is probably on more often than normal {judge if you must}, but the kids love that, meals are a bit more simple,  my computer time dictated by spreadsheets and invites and my nights of sleep are shorter.  But all in all, we feel very blessed... and thankful that this is just a season!

Okay enough talking about busyness... here one picture that might seem random, but I love it... just a moment of life happening in our house.
