The Sky Beneath My Feet by Lisa Samson


What is the best thing to do when there are so many choices to make, so many options to chose from, that you can’t made a choice at all? Sometimes the best thing to do is just get away from it all. Then we might have the clarity to make a choice after all.

Beth is a mom of two married to a minister in large church. But her husband has been presented with a ministry opportunity and decides the best thing to do is to seek God’s will by locking himself in their shed for a month. This leaves Beth alone to answer for him and take care of their two boys by herself. All of this is while she was supposed to be on vacation in Florida. Will their life and marriage ever be the same again?

I was eager to read Lisa Samson’s latest novel and I was not disappointed. The combination of humour and a realistic woman struggling through realistic problems is always a satisfying read for me.  I also enjoy how the ending isn't perfect or idealized in any way. It is real and that is what makes it work for me.  I highly recommend this book and any other of Lisa Samson’s books.

I was given a copy of this book by BookSneeze in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
