Water Balloons

The Easter bunny brought Tru a package of water balloons. Now he wants to fill them and throw them ALL the time. The only part of this that's a problem is that he can't fill them himself. So, guess who this duty falls upon -that's right -ME! I've broken several fingernails trying to tie those things (couldn't they make it a little easier?), but the smile on his face makes it worth it. Here is a picture of him showing Daddy his "prize", and of course, getting ready to throw them!


Well, once again, Easter was cold, cloudy, and rainy. You would think that God would make sure this special day was glorious -sun shining brighter than ever, flowers blooming, warm temperatures, etc., but no. That never happens -at least not in Kansas and apparently not in Missouri either. So, we did our Easter egg hunt inside. Here are some pics.
The rabbit is Tru's "pet". He has named him (or possibly her -I have no idea) Rabbity.

I'm so behind!

This blog entry will be picture overload! I will try to catch everyone up on what we've been doing in April.

First we visited Discovery Center in Springfield. We have a membership, so Tru and I go frequently, but this was the first visit where Daddy went with us. I love this place! I love the one of Tru putting on the puppet show for us!

Freeze Please

I just want to say how much I love my little boy. He is so precious right now. I want to freeze him at this age. He wakes up every morning with a huge smile on his face. He crawls in my bed, hugs me, and tells me over and over again, "I love you, Mommy. I love you sooooooooo much!" It makes waking up at the crack of dawn a little more tolerable. I love him sooooooooooo much, too!

The Shack

I FINALLY finished reading this book. It took me FOREVER to get through the middle of the book, but overall, I enjoyed reading it. Many people suggested that I read it after what happened to Tru. I still have a lot of questions for God, but reading this reminded me of my favorite verse.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future."
The whole book is basically about trusting God which has been a struggle for me for many years now. It's still difficult for me, but I'm trying. That's the best I can do right now.
