Chasing Hope by Kathryn Cushman

Sabrina thought she had her life all figured out. She thought she knew what God had called her to do. But a devastating diagnosis changed all of that. So now she is working hard at what feels like plan B to her.  Can she ever find the same hope she had in her first plan for her life?

Brandy is a girl in trouble. Misunderstood. Making poor choices. But a second chance given by a judge to prevent her from ending up in jail could prove to be the chance of a life time. Sabrina comes into Brandy’s life to coach her running. While the two could hardly be more different a common ground is found in their love for running. Will this bond be enough to save both of their lives from spinning out of control?

Chasing Hope was an interesting read. A good story with rather interesting characters. While some of the character development and plot line was rather predictable and left a bit to be desired, the novel was an overall engaging read.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers 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.
