16 Months

M(om): Joash, can you stop what you are doing for a little bit and talk to me?

J(oash): I guess so, mom. But there are so many things I like to do!

M(om): I know Joash. Why don't you tell me about some of those things?

 J: Well, I really like to play with my toys and read books. I think it is really fun to make you read the same book a whole bunch of times in a row and then when Dad comes home, have him read that book too. I like to take every single toy out and toss it on the floor. I also really like it when you take the cushions off of the couch. And now that I can walk and stand, I like to find all of this cool stuff that you put on the tall shelves. I just wish I could see out the windows easier.
 M: You are very good at keeping Mom busy. How are you physically?

J: Well, I am growing and I have 5 teeth (still) the sixth one is there, but it doesn't want to come out yet. I can show you were my eyes, ears, nose, hair, mouth, belly, toes and hands are. Would you like to see?
 M: Umm... not right now. How about eating?

J: Well, I am eating less then I used to, but I still really like breakfast and lunch the best. My new favorite thing is peanut butter on toast.

M: Do you think you would like eat some more vegetables or meat?

J: No. I like other things much better.

M: Okay. How about naps?

J: Well, just recently I have started to only take one nap a day. I like it much better. And now we can go a do stuff in the mornings, so that is fun!
M: Any words that you say that other people can understand?

J: I am very good at "Mama" and "Dada."  I said "tractor" for one day, but I don't like to show off.

M: What are your favorite books and toys?

J: I really like books with flaps to lift right now. They are so much fun. And I like books with cats in them.
Oh, and I also like the book that  plays music. For toys, I like boxes, cups and my animals. Everyday is different and I rarely want to play with the same thing two days in a row. Variety is fun!

M: You are fun, too Joash. Thanks for talking with me!

J: No problem, Mom. Can we read this book now?

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.

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.

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…
