No Pictures, but Here's What's Happening

No pictures today as the computer is still out of order. It hasn't actually made it to the repair shop yet, but I don't really want to start to put pictures on the farm laptop. I would rather keep everything in the same space.
But, I do have a few fun stories and Joash quotes to share and some notes on what is happening Mataya's world.

 Yesterday, Joash was asking me a question. I don't remember what it was exactly, but it was something that either did not know the answer to or a question that didn't really have a "right" answer. I asked Joash what he thought. His responded, " I don't know. I will figure it out when I am older."

Last night at supper I said to Joash that Mataya and I were going to read the Bible for devotions. He said, "Mataya can't do that!" "Why not?" I asked, expecting to get an answer like she is too little or she can't read yet. But Joash confidently stated, "She can't turn the pages." True. That is very true.

Now Mataya has decided that it is time to learn to roll and that she must do it now. And when is the best time to learn. While you are in bed of course. When you are supposed to be sleeping at 3:30 am. She can get over just fine, but her arm gets stuck under her. And so once she gets in that position, she doesn't like it all and wails. So, night time sleep and naps times have been rather disrupted the last few days. Today finally, I swaddled her with both arms out and helped her fall asleep on her stomach. As soon as Joash could roll, he turned into a stomach sleeper, so it wouldn't surprise me if the same was true of her. So I am hoping this helps the process along a bit so we can get back to having good naps and nice long stretches in the night as well.

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…
