Such a great day and its only half over!!

What a wonderful day!!
Rested on the couch this morning and listened to d2 play with is cars in the kitchen. Then We played hide and seek for the very 1st time.
It was soo cute! He counted like this.
& then mumbled something that sounded like
Ready or not here I come.
(thank you word world for teaching my child how to play hide and seek!)
He was the seeker the whole time...& I got to hide. 
You all know hiding is the best part!!
But to my little one, finding me was more fun for him.
Giggles filled the house and every now and then a snort.
(thank you D for passing your snort on to our child, it is by far my most favorite thing)
I cant remember the last time I played this game, but it as soo much fun.
I had so much fun that at one point while running to hide, I wasn’t paying very good attention and ran my left shoulder blade into a corner of the house. 
(it still hurts)
On top of all the fun, d2 also had a big boy moment!
He is growing up, but this one I am soo ready for!
He peed in his frog potty for the 1st time today.
I have been putting him on his frog potty pretty much whenever he wants....he does get m&m’s so it help with him making that choice. 
So today I have been asking him to poop so I can put him down for his nap
There is nothing worse they having your child's nap interrupted because of a bowel movement. This lead to asking if he wanted to sit on the potty.
So we sat him down...and gave him a bowl of m&m’s like normal.
I really wasn't expecting too much from it. He usually just wants the m&m’s.
The all of the sudden he said... Look...its the water!
I looked in his potty and what did I find to my pleasure!!
Yes he peed in the potty! & I took pictures.
I never understood why Kate Gosselin photographed her children when the each pooped in the potty until this moment. 
(Yes I might be one of those people who photographs that moment too)
After getting a diaper on him, and what not, We cheered, spun around, and I told him how very excited I was about this. Then he helped me put it in the toilet, and flush.
(yes I photographed it all, for daddy of course)
And we Cheered some more!!
Good job little man!!
This is one of the things to do when I get back from my trip, & I feel like he might actually be ready for it!!

Getting on the Plane!!!

This friday!
I am soo very excited and nervous at the same time! Boy this time has flown by!
First, I would like to thank all of you for your support, and encouragement!

So many people have shown me the fathers love in the last few months and I am so grateful! Whether you have supported me financially, or in prayer, it all means soo much! 
With your help I have raised all but $130, but the Lord is good and has provided that in another way, by blessing D with lots of extra hours at work, adding extra money to our budgets that we were able to put toward the trip. Praise Jesus!
So now I ask you to pray! And keep me and the team in your prayers while we travel. These are the things our team has be praying for as we prepare for our trip, & we ask that you join us in that.
  • Ask God to keep our travels safe & that our group will continue to get to know each other and communicate well. 
  • Pray that we will be invited into homes of nationals.
  • Pray for the women's retreat. That women can come & that they can take a few days off from responsibilities to attend. 
  • Pray that the women will be encouraged and motivated to share in their community. 
  • Pray for the man in our group as he will be meeting other male nationals during the women’s retreat. That he will be bold in sharing Jesus’s Love.

  • Pray for their government, Right now they have no hope for it to improve and pray for the country. 
For those of you who don't know, We will be going to south asia.
I also ask that you pray for me personally. 
  • Ask God to give me peace as I leave D & d2 for two weeks. 
      (this will be the longest I have ever be away from my little boy)
  • Pray that d2 will adjust to having my dear friend Ann watch him while I am away.
       (this is also a praise bc knowing his environment wont change will             help while Im gone)
  • Pray for D 
      (Two weeks as a single dad might get to him)
  • Pray that I will give all this up to God, and embrace the moments while I am there, and not focus on worries of home.
Im not sure what else, but please pray as you feel lead. 
This is my verse as we go! I hope it encourages you as much as it does me.
Eph. 3: 17-19 “and I pray that you, being rooted & established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide, and long, and high, and deep is the love of christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
