So Much Going On, So Little Time To Post

A lot has happened in the time since I last posted. I have started piano lessons with 7 students. There are a few more possibilities for students but I am thankful for this start. They all are doing well and seem to really enjoy their lessons. I am also helping in the school office one morning a week. I know I just couldn't stay away. They needed help answering the phones and it helps me to stay connected with what is going on. It is amazing how out of touch you feel and I just live across the parking lot.
The other big thing that has happened is that I had my gall bladder removed on the 18th of September. I have had three attacks since Lindsey was born and the doctor said it would probably only get worse. I am feeling good, just a little sore. It was day surgery and they did not have to cut me all the way open. That was what I was praying for.
This is a big week coming up. On Sunday, September 28, 2008 Faith Baptist Church will be celebrating our 27th Anniversary. This time of year always makes me very nostalgic as I think of all the wonderful memories our family has made serving the Lord. There are just too many to share in one post. Friends and Family will be arriving in town starting Wednesday and there are so many things to do. We are also having a regional Pastor's College with Dr. Clarence Sexton and he and Mrs. Sexton will be arriving this week also. I can't wait to see them. Well, Lindsey is crying and I need to go take care of her. Thanks for stopping in and visiting with our family. Have a blessed week!!! Talk with you again soon.

Adventures with my sweet baby girl!!!

This is the picture of the week. I have been trying very hard not to let Lindsey suck on her fingers or thumb. Every time I see her I take them out and give her the "bink" as we have come to call it. I have always felt that I would rather fight the binky battle and not the thumb battle. Well, one morning not to long ago Jake went in to check on the sweet little thing and this is how he found her. Sound asleep with her thumb in her mouth. She has been sleeping so well at night so I guess that I won't complain and she is so cute. She is really growing and she is starting to figure things out. Like, if she will cry loud and long enough that we might come in and pick her up. At first I thought that she might be having tummy aches and felt sorry for her but now I do not feel sorry for her. Mostly because one time Jake and I went in to check on her and as soon as she saw us she quit crying and smiled at us. Little turkey!! This does not make it easy to let her cry but I know that I can not spoil her either. If I could have my way I would hold her all day long.
Well, last night we went to the Spokane County Fair. Like a good blogger, I remembered the camera. We got to the baby pigs that where only four weeks old. They were oh, so cute and I thought, "How fun, we could take Lindsey's picture with all the baby animals". So I said to Jake, "get the camera" and I went to take a picture of the animals but I had forgot to charge the camera. It was so dead that it would not even turn on. I was so disappointed!! Well, maybe next time I will not only remember to bring the camera but to have it charged up before we go somewhere. We went to the cow barn and they were mooing. Lindsey was so confused. Her eyes were so big and she kept her eyes right on Jake and I. It was cute to watch her hear and see new things even though she is a little young to know what she is seeing. We had such a great time together as a family. We stayed till the very end and got home very late. Lindsey ate and went right to bed. She was so tired. I am thankful for a sweet baby girl and for the help that the Lord has given me.
Thanks for stopping by and checking in with us. Have a great day!!!!
