iSonto #11

We are thankful for the signs of Spring all around us . . .

Blossoms, irises, new lily and rose foliage . . .

Fuchsia in bloom .  .

. . . and the lemon tree looking like we originally imagine it would, with lots of yummy yellow lemons.

Elnathan completed one of his harder puzzles all by himself and proclaimed "I know my zoo". As a mother I was thrilled to see this as it is another sign of Nate moving toward being able to do little projects independently. Previously we had only done it together, and often he didn't display much interest.

Natey's memory verse was "Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good" Ps. 118:1.

Mercy was a crawler and happy about it!

Her crawling creates great excitement in her brother, and some extra training challenges in their relationship. It so sweet when she began crawling, we were all so thrilled and Elnathan started saying "Yay, look, Mercy is crawling". 

 Mercy is now  ten months and has been upset with teething, although there are no new teeth.

 From garden to tummies . . .

It was fun to walk out in the garden with Elnathan and fetch a lemon to put into our pumpkin pie. This was a new recipe and turned out beautifully for an in-house date night with Dave. The extra dough was used to make each family member's initial. This was a rare foray into unnecessary baking when the sink was still full of dishes to wash!

A book we enjoyed together was Baby Sitter, which has been read many time since we borrowed it from the library. Nate now knows off by heart and tells it to himself.

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from  Tending Your Garden.

Reading little sections of this book, a compilation of Denise's articles, has been a much needed reminder of my calling as a Christian wife.

Isonto is a Zulu word for both week and Sunday, so Dave suggested it as the title of this little update I plan (God willing) to put out each Sunday.

Oh your children are getting so big!! how delightful to have spring starting where you are....we are winding down our summer weather and beginning the autumn season. I love the looks of your lemon lemons sliced in water and iced tea and we like to squeeze fresh lemon juice onto our grilled salmon! Enjoy the start of spring over there! :)
