Getting in the groove


Cora's a week old now. YIKES! I know the time will fly by all too quickly. I hope I can savor the moments while she is so little and sweet. I've thought about how neat it is that God provides such a wide variety of life for us to enjoy. I don't know how to answer the question, "what is your favorite season," because I like them all. I enjoy the unique aspects each one brings. I love summer...hot days, swimming, playing at the beach, finding a cool creek or spring, and all the things summer brings. Fall is great...crisp nights, changing colors, roasting marshmallows, sweaters. Winter is always welcomed around here with the cooler weather, occasional coats, fires in the fireplace, Christmas, soup. I love spring too...beautiful flowers, a newness of life, Easter, clean feel, resurrection! So, I think God knew we would need the different seasons of change to keep our lives from the mundane. So it is with these precious babies. I love each season...the helpless, tiny newborn with all the feedings and funny expressions, the smiles and coos from a several month old baby, the cuteness of their crawls and toddles, their first words and experiences. I love the next stages of toddlerhood and preschool. Now that Carleigh is in school, I love her new personality (most of the time) and how sweet and sensitive she is becoming. I hope I will not get so wrapped up in the hurriedness of life that I miss something. I hope I will soak it all in...every smile, every coo, every hug, every cry.

Guess who likes watermelon?





Kelvin and Luke went grocery shopping the other day and came home with a watermelon. It may be a little early for those, but it was a fun treat anyway. Emma and Kelvin really enjoyed theirs.
