Today was the baby shower for my sweet friend Sharon Rose. She is the one who's maternity pics I shared earlier. This was such a special day!
After a very long day full of attacks, set backs, emotions gone haywire, and a very late start- this cake was my reward. I was so excited with how it turned out. Sharon's mom (and my second mom) stayed up with me the entire night as I worked on the cake and we worked on all the prep for the shower. It was so worth it!!!!!
Now I am off to bed....and praying Mya will sleep a little longer than usual. I will share more tomorrow!

Everything just fell apart today. So I am just thanking God for homeschooling and I am going to excercise my right to flexibility and we will start over again tomorrow.
Maybe tomorrow I will have more energy. I am so tired that it is affecting everything. Please pray for me to get on a regular routine so I can better care for my children. I forgot to take my meds for the past 3 days which is contributing to today's crash I am sure....I hate it!!!!!
So maybe tomorrow there will be better news to report!

The new added benefit to this new beginning of our lives is the calm that comes with order. While I certainly don't have this perfected, just one day of having a set meal time and snack time cut down my stress drastically...there wasn't food all over the place. And everyone actually ate real food since they were not eating junk all day. Definate plus on this side!!!!
I will let you know how tomorrow goes. Just keep praying!
Is it Christmas or just the first day of
school? Our morning started out with a surprise from the UPS man. Our materials for school have been delayed. But this morning, on the first official day of school we recieved a decent size shipment. It felt like Christmas as we opened each box and saw all the goodies! So far we have 23 of these yellow boxes and this is not even half of our materials! Not sure where I am going to put all this stuff.
Mya was quite sad that none of it was for her. She just kept wanting to read the new books and was so sad they were not for her. I think tomorrow I will have to make her a new box of her own!

My best friend and I had our first "official" phot shoot together. This shoot was especially significant to me. I remember holding this new mama in my arms when she was 2 days old. And here she is all grown up and only a few more weeks away from holding her precious baby in her arms. The funniest part of these pics...the pet duck. Isn't he cute!

Raging, trembling heart let go
Give away the fear
To the hands outstretched to you.
Allow the tears to fall his shoulder
As he gently reaches within
Touching your soul
Purifying with every stroke
Be full of courage
He will remain bound to you
Every step carrying you
Held fast to his heart
Be not afraid as each layer
Stripped before him
Reveals truth not known to even you
For he loves you
Rest, Heart, rest
Let his love redo, rebuild
Let it swallow you in its grasp
Let yourself drown in his love.
In the end you will shine
Reflecting his tender, joyful eyes
Upon the smile of your soul.

We are waiting for our school materials to show up. Oh, yes, we are going to be homeschoolers this year!!! We are enrolled in Colorado Virtual Academy which is actually public school online. We are excited and anxious to get started. Unfortunately there appears to be a delay in the shipping due to a supplier issue so we are all starting to feel a little frustrated.
My children are heavy on my heart tonight. There has been so much sadness lately. Most of it has been over lack of friendships and hurtful friendships here so far. I am not sure what to do except pray specifically for each one of them to make friends.
Well, I am going to go to bed now... I just felt the need to blog...my friend has consistently been blogging every day and I was feeling a little accountability flowing from her example!
