May Books

Most of my April books were reviews, that were already posted on the blog, so this a recap of what else I read in April and the books I read in May. It was a good month of reading.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller - A follow up to Blue Like Jazz. Great bits of truth with interesting stories in between. Thought provoking and challenging.

The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst - A good book for thinking about why you do the things you do and making sure that the "yes" you give is the best one it can be.

Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst - The real purpose of who we are comes from God, not others. But that still doesn't make it any easier to face rejection. But the truth is we are always loved by God.

Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst - We were all made to crave something. Sin has caused that craving to turn to food and other addictions rather than God.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple - A fun, quirky story of a dysfunctional family that really fall apart when the mother goes missing. A good, quick summer read.

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica - A suspenseful thriller, but without any thing that is too difficult to read for sensitive readers. The twist at the end I did not expect.

Wild and Free by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan - God is a wild God, doing things we would never expect. God is also free from anything that may hinder him. Because we are followers of Him, we to can live our lives wild and free.

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty - Many years ago, a tragedy happened that changed everyone lives forever and still effecting the present day. My first books by Moriarty and I am hooked!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandell - A flu pandemic sweeps the world, wiping most of the population. Now, those left behind must rebuild their lives with what they have left.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!


Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.




And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
