The Happenings of August

August brought a busy yet fabulous month!! Here is a peek into our past month...

This is Mrs. Rabbit. She loves to visit us in our backyard on a daily basis! In January she had a liter of four little bunnies, but they did not survive the 12 inches of snow that we had. We were thrilled when she had another liter!

Now, we get to see one of the babies hopping around! Joshua loves sitting and watching the bunnies. This one he had tried to reach for, but the bunny was fast and Joshua could not catch it!

Daniel showing off his new grill! He has been enjoying learning how to become a grill expert! Here he was practicing for our cook out with friends. Below are pictures of our event. I wish I had taken more...

Regular hamburger and Coca Cola Burgers

Fabulous guacamole made by Amanda and Rachel!!

We soaked up the rest of the month swimming with Joshua since they were closing the pool soon. Joshua just loves to swim and jumps in by his self now.

Joshua loves jumping off his Daddy' hands and going under the water

Swimming all by himself!!

Joshua loves floating on his back!!

Daniel and I along with Grandpa and Grandma Blanchard took Joshua to his first museum trip!! He enjoyed leaning all of the things around him.

I think he liked digging in the dirt more than digging for dinosaur bones!! By the time we got him in the car after a good day a museum, he fell right to sleep!!

The Lord's Blessings...

Traveling is starting to slow down for us, and it has been so nice to be one happy little family again!! We have certainly missed the family quality time together!! You really realize the meaning of family and how important each member is to you. Even though the traveling has slowed down, life has not. We remain just as busy, and yet, thankful to God for all that He is doing in our lives.

Daniel has been working very hard and having early mornings and some late nights. He has 26 more days on this job, and we are still awaiting were we are going next. Daniel is a wonderful provider for this family, and we are certain grateful for his hard work.

I am not only busy taking care of our home and Joshua, but doing some piano teaching on the side. It has been a joy to see my students go from not knowing any music to playing easy songs on the piano!

Joshua is getting bigger each day. He is also adding more words to his vocabulary! :) And, he is a joy to listen to and also to try figuring out what he is asking when he asks you a question. He really makes your day brighter when you are feeling down. He sits for hours just playing with his tunka trucks and his legos. He also helps with the chores around here! He unloads his dishes and the tuber ware out of the dishwasher, and he puts all his toys away after he plays with them (with some encouraging help from Mommy and Daddy). This past month, Joshua transitioned into a toddler bed, which he thoroughly enjoys! He now walks himself to bed and after we are done praying, he falls asleep on his own. Sometimes we are blessed and he comes up to us and asks "choo choo?", which is our saying for night night. For the most part he stays in his bed when he is down for the night until morning!

Most of our last month has been spent in the car. This weekend will be the first in the last seven weekends that we get to stay home!! We have been driving to Daniel's parents place so Daniel could help his Dad with some work, and than we took a trip down to Houston to visit my Grandparents. We also did stop and get pictures of Joshua with the Bluebonnets. They were not exactly what we wanted, so we are going to try again. Enjoy the pictures...

I love his eyes
