Just another mom blog…

For this child, I have prayed. (Samuel 1:27)


This week has been insanely busy.  I’m really glad though because I am usually very emotional because my mom died two years ago this time. So on Monday, a bunch of awesome ladies and their little ones met up at a local farm. The kids got to pick out pumpkins from the patch, see and pet chickens/horses/goats/pigs/turkeys, and they got to navigate through a corn maze.  Nathan had a blast and is not in the least afraid of animals. In fact, he loves them.

We had a great time and I hope to go back soon. It also made me appreciate how hard C works so that we can give Nathan opportunities like these.

The birthday party decorations are all in. The invites did not get sent out because I was able to hand-deliver or email all of the local people who could come.  Plus, I cannot find my address book anywhere.  For the folks who live too far to come, I plan to just include it with the Christmas card so that they can have a copy.  I hope to find the address book by then.

There are a few little ones coming to play and I know he’ll be so excited. Unfortunately, 3 of the kids can’t come due to the same birthday, and 4 will be out of town this weekend.  I am still waiting to hear about two older ones. However, there will be 4 little guys the same age group as Nathan there.  I am not sure what we will be doing as of yet. I did try to find a few farm animals, however, the costs for a traveling petting zoo starts at $200, and I’m just not going to spend that kind of money.  So I got creative and started asking farm animal rescues if they could bring an animal or two in exchange for professional pictures of the animal for their websites and a small donation.  I don’t think I’ll have any luck, but I thought I would try anyhow. I am still waiting to hear back from them. I plan on making some good, kid-friendly food for the kids as well.

Tuesday morning we had the Mom 2 Mom meeting at church. I LOVE this huge group of fellow mommies! It gives the little ones a chance to play with each other as we do bible study as it pertains to our roles as wives and mothers and do crafts.

Wednesday night I am going to go to a small christian group of similar aged adults called Life Groups.  Nathan will play with the host’s kids and I am hoping C will make it home in time to go with us.  I think it will be an asset for us as we try to put God first in our marriage.

Finally, I am getting Nathan’s homeschool schedule planned out, and I am really excited about it.  I think he’ll enjoy the activities that I am planning for him.  🙂


Anyhow…that’s all that I can think of at this moment.
