More pictures


 These were taken the very first night we were home.
Both Zach and Ayana were so anxious to hold their new baby brother.
 Happy boy!
Well, getting back into a normal, or new normal routine, is proving to be a bit challenging! For the last week the entire family, except me, has been very sick :(  They are all starting to feel better, but it's been a little exhausting caring for everyone including hubby. But, there are good things too, like lots of snuggles all together on the couch and just really being home. The poor kids though are very tired of being sick and keep saying, "I don't want to be sick anymore."  Makaio is doing fabulous, sleeping through the night already too!! He loves to eat and is responding to his name and for sure knows who mom is. He goes to the DR. today to get a check up and be sure there are no pesky issues that need to be taken care. I am so enjoying these long warm days of the end of summer and hopefully will start our homeschool routine again next week. I haven't really had time or felt an inclination to get back to crafting yet, but am starting to miss it which is good. Hopefully my next post will have some crafty goodness in it. Hugs....

Hello lovely sister in Christ!

Don't know why but after reading a couple of your posts this poem came to mind and I wanted to share it with you, it has been so good for me:

"Cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow, for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep; I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep."

I pray you give yourself lots of grace today in all that gets done, and for all that doesn't get done!

Love in Christ Alone,
Elise
