Breaking the Rules

So far everyday we've been in Florida we've been breaking Sean's # 1 rule. Don't have too much fun!

Day one was at The Magic Kingdom. Havah rode It's a Small World.

Day two was at Epcot. Sean and I rode Mission to Space and spent the rest of the day regretting it.

Day three was at the revival. A meeting in the morning and a meeting in the evening. It was more exciting than Disney World.

Day four was spent at the beach. We walked 50 yards into the ocean and were only up to our waists. The Gulf of Mexico is so different than the Pacific in Southern California.

Tonight Havah and I are spending the evening with my Dad's cousins Phyllis and Gene while everyone else is back at the revival. Havah's had a lot of late nights and needs a peaceful evenings with no fireworks or characters.

Pictures will follow soon.

Tomorrow's the start of an eventful summer. Early in the morning I take Sean and my Mom to the airport. Late that evening I am going back to the airport with all of my girls. We'll land in Orlando at 1am. We'll spend a week in Florida at the revival and Disney World.

Shortly after we get back our good friends from California are coming with their kids to join Israel for ATC. Then I head to Cincinnati for a family reunion. In July Israel and Judah are going to California for a few weeks. Sean and I are talking about going to Carolina while they are gone.

Once all this is over it's only a short time before the girls start school again.

This is going to be a fun summer.

What I Should Have Said

This is what I thought as I layed in bed yesterday evening. I am having this thought more often than I would like right now. It's one of those glorious times of great weakness brought on by lack of sleep and new stresses. Havah hasn't been sleeping as well as I would like and is often grumpy in the evenings. This puts her mom on edge. When I'm on edge I end up doing and saying things I wish I hadn't. Maybe I still would have done something or said something, but things sound so much better when you have a clear head. I need God's help. I need the Holy Spirit. I need the fruit of the Spirit.

I Forgot to Tell You

Havah also loves it when Auntie Laura comes to town.

The Exciting Life of Havah Henry

Havah's life is quite exciting right now. Her day begins around 6:00 each morning. She politely lets her Momma know that it's time for breakfast. After breakfast her Momma politely lets her know that it is too early to begin the day, so Havah goes to visit Gram.

After Havah's second breakfast Gram and I get ready to run errands. Havah LOVES to run errands. She gets a new diaper, clean cloths and put in the car seat. This is how she let's me know that she loves it.

After running errands it's time for elevensies. After this mid morning snack Havah loves to sit in her swing (this one she really does love). Thank you Auntie Angela for the wonderful swing!

After a nap the sisters usually get home from school. This is one of Havah's favorite times of the day. In her world she becomes a rock star. Her sisters sing and dance her around the kitchen, change her diapers, sit and talk to her about their day and listen to her talk about hers.

This is where the day blurrs. At this point Havah's Momma is tired and ready for Daddy to come hold her. All throughout the day Havah naps when she wants to, cries when she wants to, poops when she wants to and often cries out very clearly GRAM!! When she says this what she is telling Gram is, "No one is holding me. I have this strange sensation on my back! I think it's the bed. Please come save me."

This Face

I love this face and miss this little girl. She's not so much of a baby any longer. There's too much competition in the baby department. I wish she lived closer, but her mom doesn't like it when I pray that He would move them to Kansas City.

Thanks for capturing this beautiful smile Sara!
