Cora and Carson Came All the Way to Arkansas

to see us!! Aaron and Kelly came with them also! Ha! They watched some softball and soccer. We took them to the fall festival at our church. We also had some family pictures taken. I cannot wait to get them back. I love all the fall leaves and since fall kind of skipped Minnesota it was fun to get pics of the kids playing in all the leaves. The trip went way too fast! I know it is stressful to travel with two kids under the age of two, but I really hope they had a good time!

Please Pray

Chad, Nikki, and Clayton welcomed baby Johanna this morning. She spent some time with her family then went to Heaven. I know this family is being surrounded in prayer, but my heart is just breaking for them.

Nothing like going through photos

from this mornings soccer game and coming across this gem.

I don't believe she was hurt and I know he was going for the ball, but this just looks bad!

I like these better! Big kick!!

Celebrating GW's last second goal!!!

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month

October is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance month, and the 15th is the day of the month that is singled out to remember. I am not really sure what I want to say, but I have met some of the most amazing women in the past 7 months. Their babies are precious and so loved and missed. So throughout the day I will be thinking of these women and their families and praying.

Busy, Busy, Busy...

I love this picture of Little Man. He looks like he is praying before he punts it!
Life has just been so busy lately. Right now we have at least one activity every night, sometimes two. So we are running around and getting children to this practice or that game. We have learned a lesson though. We will never allow our family get this committed again. Sean and I are in a parenting Bible study right now and the first lesson was about our children being experience rich, but relationship poor. A few days later MG had a friend over and it became very clear that she is experience rich, but relationship poor. I really think slowing down a little bit is in our future. Anyway, Baby Bum is moving around and kicking like the soccer player s/he is probably born to be! Sean's brother and his family are coming in a couple of weeks and we are so excited!!! There is a lot going and a lot to look forward to!

Thank you

for the love and reassurance. It really means so much to me. I did realize that I did not share any info on the new baby though. I am almost 16 weeks. S/he is due on March 23rd. I think this has contributed to a lot of my anxieties. Evan was due on March 27th. I am pretty much reliving everything from a year ago, and a year ago I could not even imagine what my life would be like now. The name for a girl is the same, it is very special to us, Carolina Faith. I told Sean that he could name a son anything he wanted to so he has chosen Brett (probably) Dayton. He waivers on the middle name, probably because I vetoed it with Evan. Dayton means happy, sunny day and that would probably be a good thing in our lives about now. We are not going to find out if the baby is a girl or boy. Sean loves that part and it was something fun at a stressful time. The doc who delivered Evan had to tell me 3 times it was a boy! I was sooooo sure Evan was a girl. I will not even begin to try to guess with this baby. Anyway, thank you again. I am starting to feel some of the anxiety fall away and it helps the more people who know and are truly happy for us.
