Over the past month, this is what has happened. At the beginning of September, my older brother, Caleb, had his 11th birthday. Speaking of Caleb, he has posted a new post on his website (supercrusher.blogspot.com). We also had had to go to the dentist 3 times this month. Twice for cavities and once for a pulling. The pulling was probably the most scary thing at the dentist for her ( Emilie was getting her tooth pulled, by the way). Six months ago, she was afraid of getting teeth X-Rays, believe it or not! Me and Caleb also got new bikes! Mine is Green and Caleb's is Black. Features on the bikes that we LOVE: stunt peg, back words pedaling (without it stopping),and handle brakes. School has been in for 2 months (almost 3), and its gone pretty well if you ask me. Did I mention we are going to Disney Land in November? Well, we are! We're gonna have family fun and Thanksgiving in Florida! Plus, we're going to have 2 birthdays while we are there (Emilie's and Joshua's)! In August, Josh was officially ours, just to let you know. It was good to catch up with you, but if I don't stop typing I'll... (Choose the end yourself)
1. My fingers will fall off!
2. I'll be typing all night!

As I sit here, a beautiful, tiny 6 lb baby boy is resting in a sling on my chest.
He has been very fussy (which is not entrely unusual) and after taking a shift with
Caleb & Austin, he is finally with me & has conceded to sleep. As I sit here & stare
at this amazing creature (I cannot move for fear of waking him & he desperately needs sleep)
my mind wonders to his future. I have done this, of course, with each of our children.
I find myself thankful...in the midst of this difficult time of little sleep & loss of freedom,
I find myself exactly where I want to be. Growing a family, for God's glory & my joy. Toby is right here with me, what a dad he has become. More amazing with each child, sometimes I can't get over it! Millions of questions flood my head about how to do this (raising, teaching, schooling)
well, how to be successful & without too much regret. For now though, I will just stare at his
face & dream of his future...
