This past weekend we had a visit to the medical center, emergency department and then ended up with an endoscopy of my hubby's esophagus.  He appears to have a sensitivity to dairy,  gluten and peanuts. With God's strength I was able to watch the 3 kids in the waiting area for 3.5 hours on Tuesday during his procedure.

We are home today and thankful to have a "regular routine" day, filled with playdough, cleaning and rest time. I am also watching a neighborhood boy this week. I pray that our family could be a blessing to him!  I am looking forward to a la leche league meeting tomorrow.

Facial Scrubs and Science experiments

Today for Science we did "float" or "sink."  We read the magic school bus book about floating and sinking. We then made play dough rocks to see if they would float or sink.  We also made a boat that floated.

Shiloh and I also made a facial scrub out of sugar and melted coconut oil.  Our faces and hands are now soft and glowing.

Yes, we even had our daily walk today.  The kids love walking, making snow angels and stopping to look at boot prints, squirrels and sticks.   This season we have also enjoyed reading "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats and completing snowy day - story time activities.

March is here

March started out with my hubby passing out in the middle of the night. Possibly from fever related illness? Or from Tylenol or ibuprofen?  We don't take many medications in this house. However, after Elijah's fever was brought down by children's Tylenol we now have children's and adult Tylenol in the house.

I am looking into going back to work. I believe God has a plan for me in my current work place. I interviewed for several jobs for part time and per diem positions. However,  I would have to carry a pager with those jobs and work on Sabbath.  I also would have less pay than my current job.  God put a precious caregiver in my path to care for my children.  She is a warm and loving person who shares my faith and understands our dietary restrictions.  Her hubby is currently studying aviation. They are from South Africa (home of the 2010 World Cup) and plan to return to Chad as missionaries.  I believe that by working I can aid in the gospel going forth, by supporting this precious couple.

King James Version (KJV) Hebrews 13:1  Let brotherly love continue.

Elijah loves to hold Jonah's hand on car rides, when they often both fall asleep.
