Sorry, I have been a bad blogger again. This has been a busy week. Monday Doug's mom and niece came for a visit. I was suppose to meet them downtown, but the van would not start. I was stuck at Walmart, so Doug came to my rescue fast(I think he was afraid to leave me in Walmart too long!). Had to get a rental car since we did not get our van back until late Tues. I think we are now in the market for a second vehicle. Doug has a work truck, so we have not needed an additional vehicle, but with the kids starting activities we are both going to need a vehicle to go in different directions. Tues, I took Doug's mom and niece site-seeing. We had a great time. Wed, I had a playdate at the house. Thurs, therapy for Sarah, helped in Elijah's class and his Easter egg hunt, then we went to the Maundy Thursday service at church. Elijah had his first Lord's Supper. They did it family style, so we were able to explain it to him more so he could understand it better. It was very special. Friday, Sarah went to the ENT and passed her hearing test for the first time! I was excited. Then I mowed 5.5 of our 6.5 acres and Doug tilled the garden area and did other yard stuff. We colored our eggs and hid them for the kids. Today we went to an Easter egg hunt and then shoe shopping. Sarah got sick at the shoe store. Praying it was just from overheating. Tomorrow we will go to church and then out to eat. What a special time of year to observe Easter and knowing that our Saviour died on a cross for us, but He rose again on the third day. PRAISE THE LORD!
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
