Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon

In Hope Harbor, by Irene Hannon, Michael Hunter is looking for himself. After taking a leave of absence from his job, he travels across the country to Hope Harbor, Oregon. As soon as he arrives in Hope Harbor, strange events seem to happen that are too much to be brushed off as a coincidence. Michael begin to see that maybe God really does have a different plan for his life.

Tracy Campbell is back home in Hope Harbor trying to help her uncle with his cranberry farm that is floundering. Tracy recruits the newcomer, Micheal to help her with a project that is near and dear to her heart. Could this be the beginning of a change of heart for both of them?

If you like predictable Christian romance this book is the book for you. After the first chapter, I was pretty sure that I knew what would happen at the end. Yet, I didn't really want to stop reading the book or skipping ahead to find out what happened at the end. Instead, I wanted to keep reading it to make sure I was right. So, did I love this book? Not really. But, there must have been something engaging in the story to make me keep reading. I think that there was too much fluffy romantic language that was rather unnecessary to the story overall. But, the story of grace, forgiveness and reconciliation is one everyone should hear.

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.
