8 Months

M(om): Joash, you are 8 months old today!

J(oash): I know, Mom. Isn't it great?

M: It certainly is.Why don't you tell us what a typical day is like for you.

J: Well, I get up around 7 and have breakfast. Then I play while you do some cleaning. I am usually in my ExerSaucer and I really like watching the vacuum move back and forth. I have a morning nap at 9:30 and I usually sleep until 11. 11: 30 is lunch time and then Dad comes home and I watch you and Dad eat your lunch. 1:30 is my next nap and most of the time I sleep until 3:00. Then I have a snack and if it nice outside, we go for a walk or to the beach. I love being outside! My supper is at 6 and you and Dad eat either at 5 or 7 depending on the milking schedule. I play with Dad for a while after I eat and then my before bed snack at 8 and then off to bed.

M: You have a pretty busy day. What are your favorite things to do when you play?

J: I really like jumping. I jump in my ExerSaucer and I have even jump on the trampoline with Dad. I also like to play the piano and look at books.  Since I can sit up all myself now, I like to play with different toys that you put around me. I really ones that make a noise when I shake them.
M: What other new things have you done this month?

J: Well, we went to visit Dad in the barn. That was fun.

M: Any sign of teeth?

J: Not yet, but I think they are coming.

M: How about talking?

J: Well, since I love Dad so much, I say "da,da,da" all of the time. I like to tell you stories too, Mom.

M: Any other new feats?

J: Well, speaking of feet,(why are rolling your eyes, Mom? You laugh when Dad makes jokes like that. I learned from the best.) I enjoy sucking on my toes. They are pretty tasty.

M: Any thoughts on crawling?

J: I can see how it would be a good thing to do. Then I could get my toys that are out of reach. But, I am not ready for it yet.

M: Thanks, Joash. I hope you have a great day.

J: Thanks, Mom. Now can you get my book for me?


I told you Joash would have fun on the trampoline! It won't be long & he'll be jumping w/o Wilbert's help! :)

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
