A prayer for my children:
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
Ben is about to lose another tooth; it is the second one this month. School is going well- we've finally found a rhythm and routine for each day that is flexible yet structured enough. We had a hilarious time this morning with playdoh, the "s" sound, and snakes. Lorelei often spends time at the table with us while we work, and I am amazed at how much she is picking up. Each week her speech is developing exponentially, getting so clear and girl like and not all baby babble. She's finally got enough hair on top for a "knot-knot", or as she is saying "pitty nah-nah mah mommy" (pretty knot knot like mommy). Although, mine, I am afraid to inform, does not stick straight up like hers does, Bam Bam style. I asked my grandmother to teach me how to knit while I was in Colorado, and I am beginning my first project- although, I've gotten no farther than casting on. I can't seem to get the first row to start right at all. I get a few stitches in, and then half of it falls off, and ends up looking like a jumbled mess. Even David is getting in on all the learning action these days, as you can see below.
Just found your blog (via a comment you left on uncommon grace). i love that verse, too. thanks for bringing it to the forefront of my mind today!
