Thankful Thursday

1. I am thankful that so far this week we have had no trips to the emergency room.

2. I am so thankful that Kaibryn gets her smaller cast tomorrow and will be able to move her arm a little better. She is so tough. She has NEVER cried since breaking her arm...unlike her Mom. :) The Lord is so good to care about small things. Kaibryn has been pretty sad about not being able to really play at recess bcuz she can't do much with this cast. The Lord sent the rain and they had indoor recess.

3. I am thankful that we were able to get Chris into a Dr. quickly last week after he hurt his finger and all those medical bills will be taken care of.

4. I am thankful that everyone is getting healthy again...Cooper has had a sinus infection and Christopher and Kaityn have had pretty bad coughs.

5. I am so thankful for Grandparents who will help watch the kids so I didn't have to miss a day of work.

6. I am so thankful for Little Sprouts. I am really enjoying teaching and am making some sweet friends. Chris is proud of me. He thinks I have S.A.D (social anxiety disorder). Honestly, I probably do so talking to people I really don't know is a big stretch for me. :)

7. I am so thankful that the kids are loving school and look forward to going everyday. God has answered so many prayers in this area. I am in such peace that this is where they are supposed to be.

8. I am thankful for a friend to take my cake decorating class with...especially a friend who won't laugh at my "creations."

9. I am thankful for the Lord who knows my weaknesses and the things that stress me out. He has led me to read something everyday that has changed my focus and has given me a peace. Good thing He is in control.

What are you thankful for today??

Rainy Season Then Sunshine

You know the saying "When it rains it pours." Well, I am ready for this "rainy" week to be over.

This week started off with Kaibryn breaking her wrist in two places and ends with Chris messing up his finger quite badly. God has been so good to open doors to go see a Dr. today. We thought we were going to have to wait several days.


God is good!!!!!!! He knew this Momma needed some encouragement. Christopher has LOVED learning about the planets and solar system these past couple of weeks at school. He came home today with his "Space Journal." I was looking through it and came across his entry on August 25th.

Just in case you can't read it it says...

"on my trip to the moon i would take mom. i love hr becuse she cooks. shes good."

That was good for this Momma to read even if he only wants to take me to the moon because I am a good cook. At least he wants me to go with him...haha!!!!

What a Weekend?

Around our house it is always a zoo. Something going on. Something being broken. Something being knocked over. Something. But it is always fun and entertaining.

Friday night we just hung out here at the house and watched a movie.

Saturday was the game. Well, you know...not a pretty game. Chris was able to get tickets to go to Dallas to see OU play. He had a great time but got in super late.

Sunday after church we had family come over and we ate together and then took much needed naps. When everyone (but Chris) woke up I thought I would take them to the park to play so he could get some sleep. The kids were having a great time laughing and playing with each other and the other kids who were there.

While they were playing Kaibryn wanted help on the monkey bars. I tried to help her across but she was so heavy and wiggly. She got down and went and played with something else. A few minutes later I saw her climb up on the monkey bars again. She was holding on with one hand, swung back to get some momentum. When she swung forward to grab the other bar she slipped off and fell to the ground. I saw her lift her head and jumped up and ran over to her and when she stood up...her arm. Oh my goodness. it was the strangest sight. I knew something was not right. She is so tough though. She just kept saying, "ow. it hurts." But she NEVER cried. I called Chris told him we were coming home and told him I thought Kaibryn broke her arm.

We headed out to the ER...waited 3 is broken. There are two bones broken in her wrist. They did not set it because they said that it would probably slip back. They put it in a sling and wrapped it very well.

Tomorrow we will go to an orthopedic dr. to have him possibly set it or do a little surgery to set it. We won't know until tomorrow.

Like I said...she is TOUGH. She did alot better than her Mom did last night. She wants to get up and walk around. She says it is not hurting. All the kids are being so sweet to her and helping her out. So for today we are watching movies trying to keep her still and her arm elevated.
