Missing Joshua

Tracy / October 2, 2012

It’s an odd thing to be missing Josh this week. I think I hear him walking through my home at times. I miss hearing his voice from his office. Everyone misses him. The older children miss visiting over lunch where they all congregate mid-day. The littles miss playing with him in the evenings. Jon sat on Sunday night to paint…

Goodbye to Summer

Tracy / September 29, 2012

I know the days of summer have come to an end, but we still had this little loose end to tie: Earlier in the season we had purchased popsicle molds with the promise of making pudding pops this year. We found ourselves with a little sliver of time in the day. It was great, ….just perfect really, for Timothy and…

Joshua’s Trip and a Prayer Request

Tracy / September 29, 2012

Well, just when I’m celebrating a small milestone (which isn’t really small at all….just for a small person…), my oldest son is flying his way to California this morning for work. (Suitcase packed and ready….) As always, I would appreciate prayer for his safety. It’s a strange thing to be spread between two seasons of life this way. While many…

Baby Update- 35 Weeks….

I actually have a little time this morning. (This is VERY UNUSUAL! I think the children know I’m struggling a bit with morning sickness and giving me some time. They are always very considerate of these things.) Most of the children are cleaning up breakfast dishes and preparing for the day. I hear some out feeding the dog and chickens,…

I’m Here….

It has just been a long (very long!) month! Today, I decided I would devote some time to my blog. My poor, abandoned, blog. Thank you, ladies, who have sent me a little note to tell me you are praying for my family. It means so much. I wish you were all closer. We could sit on the porch, in…

If you had told me two years ago, or even one year ago, that we would have still been cleaning this house, I would have laughed! Yet, here we are! This week, Paul has been home ALL WEEK!! For those who know us personally, you know how unusual this is for our family. We have soaked up every single minute…

I’m Here, Just Busy.

The past months have been some of the busiest of my life. I would like to say I could place my finger on just one reason that our days have been so full. Honestly, there have been so many things happening, it’s hard to remember everything! I guess, first, I should thank some of you ladies for reaching out with…

Just an Update….February 26, 2012

Tracy / February 26, 2012

Well, this has been a week. The good news….Matthew’s test results returned saying that his recent ulcers were caused by a virus of all things. A VIRUS!! I didn’t know you could “catch” an ulcer. I guess the important thing is he is feeling better. You would never know he had just been in the hospital for four days. At…

Remembering

Tracy / December 31, 2011

Saying goodbye to 2011…. It’s fun to think back over big moments from the year, but honestly, it’s those little moments, that make our life so special. Waking up in the morning to happy babies jumping into your bed, or a little person who just wants to show you their latest masterpiece. Those are what make daily life wonderful, and…

Sharing News….

Tracy / December 27, 2011

We have had the most beautiful, and unexpected news this week. It would seem, that the Lord is blessing us with another baby in mid-August! Since our little one is only 6 months old, this will be by far, the closest babies we have had. These days, my hair is turning silver around the edges, and little lines have long…
