Just Some Photos

Shaving cream + food coloring = big fun at bathtime
Levi is so creative. He tried painting with his foot!

I am feeling weary. I am battling my weight. My mom has had a rough time lately & just got out of the hospital. Adam's tics have returned. Levi has started yelling when things aren't going his way, like the entire time I am getting him dressed. The other night, he dumped my entire dinner plate on the floor. I am getting everything ready for his Medicaid renewal, which starts next week. I am struggling with the incessant needs of two young ones that aren't very independent yet, and my heart is breaking while I watch marriages around me fall apart. All the while, I have things to get done for work and a long personal to-do list. I am praying that this cloud passes quickly, and I am thankful for a husband that helps me laugh and forgives my moods when I am no fun to be around.

Blogging is my way of focusing on the little things that make me happy. I am hoping it works for me tonight.

While I was gone at camp, Wes got Levi sleeping in his toddler bed again, but Levi still won't stay put for naps. So the pack-n-play is still up in Levi's room right beside his bed. Today the boys filled it with blankets and stuffed animals so they could jump in it and goof around.

This is Adam's kaleidoscope. It was a kit we found for him at a toy store. It was fun watching it come together. The best part was watching Wes fashion his own lens since we couldn't find the one that came with the kit. He made one from a CD case using an Exacto Knife and nail file. Very impressive!
Adam is making a heart to say, "I love you," while I take his picture.

 I worked in Knoxville this past Saturday and brought Levi & a friend along. Adam & Wes went to a baseball game with a group from the church Friday night. Thank you, Debbie for the great photos!

The Market Square area in Knoxville is a place I hope to visit again. We had a great time, and the surroundings were so visually interesting, I loved taking pictures there.

Adam has his best buddy over the other day to swim. They had a ball. Adam had his arm around him while they ate a snack at the dinner table. Too sweet!

Adam loves to wink when his picture is being taken.
Adam helping Levi down the slide is sweet, but the best part of this picture is their daddy smiling while watching.

Jeremiah 31:25 "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” I am so very grateful for a God that cares and that has opened my eyes to the fact that there is so much more than what we see here on earth. Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
