This week we are thankful for the . . .

* Plums Dave preserved single handedly, without my help!

* Two walking people, two hands to hold

* Bonjela for lots of hard days and nights of teething

Elnathan made us happy showing creativity in his duplo constructions. He also taught me several songs from Play School.

Natey's memory verse was "You shall not covet".

Mercy was happy to chew on corn, and had great success in clearing a cob with her six teeth.

From garden to tummies . . .

We had lots of vegetables to have with tortillas including tomatoes with basil, radishes, lettuce, and carrot.

A book we enjoyed together was "The Friday Nights of Nanna", a story about preparing the house for a Jewish Sabbath and then the family coming for a meal. We have been known to read this more than three times in one day. When we had our lifegroup for dinner and a study on Friday and they left Nate said "Our family are leaving now". This was both a good reminder to us that church is family and a reflection of what we have been reading about preparing dinners for guests!

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp again. I read the chapter about serving and cleaning being for God not people on just the right messy, frustrating day!

One funny moment occured because Nate wanted a car made out of an old beer can that Dave purchased on a trip to Madagascar, wihch is an ornament and not a toy. All this was explained, along with the fact that the car is for grown ups. These things are hard for a small boy to understand and he kept wanting to play with it. He said to me: "One day Gascar will come and he will give me the car as a treat. Gascar is a grown up." . . . We have been trying to explain that Madagascar is a country, not a person, but that is also hard for a small boy to understand!

ha ha! I love this! Gascar is a grown up! Evangeline thinks the little boy in her Dr Seuss book "wacky Wednesday" is called Wacky Wednesday! Hope your teething woes settle down soon. Busy times!
Thanks again for blogging.
