Ten Things

Ten things about the past three months.

1.  Our bathroom has been under construction for three months.  The hold up was our shower which ended up needing to be retiled.  It should finally be done this weekend.

2.  Our two chickens have started laying eggs.  They are very loving chickens.  They follow us around, eat out of our hands, let us pet them, and do tricks for us.

3.  Our girl kitty is pregnant.  Sveta is soooooooooo excited!

4.  William earned his GED and will have a graduation ceremony through the college he earned it through.

5.  Adam earned his bachelor of science in mechanical engineering and will walk/graduate next month.  He returns in September for the master's program.

6.  Julia completed her CNA training.

7.  Two of our kids were in a car accident.  Neither was hurt... praise the Lord.

8.   William has been pretty sick these last two weeks with gastrointestinal issues.  We went to the ER yesterday morning.  He had the same pain/cramping issues again this morning.  We have an appt. with a specialist tomorrow.  Praying for answers.

9.  A few nights ago John and I saw the first fireflies of this year.  They are so much fun to watch.

10.  Nolan has become an amazing swimmer.  He can dive in the pool and collect five dive sticks in one breath!


  1. That's a lot of things. Congratulation to William.....and to Julia! That's great! We had chickens when we were kids and they were like pets too. They would let us hold them and they followed us around. Nice you are getting a few eggs. When they got 'clucky'..........what we called it in Australia when the chicken wanted to sit on the eggs and hatch them, my mum would put a dozen china eggs underneath her for a few days and then when it was dark she would put a dozen day old chickies under her and she would think the eggs hatched!!!πŸ˜‚ Chickens are not very bright πŸ˜‚ I wonder if William is allergic to gluten? I was sick for years, thought I had a very sensitive stomach. But it turned out to be a gluten allergy and as soon as I cut it from my diet it was like a miracle. I'm sure the doctor will test for all sorts of things and get to the bottom of the problem. Good for Nolan......he's a dear little boy πŸ’— Have a great day Christine!
