Adventures in Indianapolis! ( Featuring the Johnson Family)

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!

I guess its time to adjust the name of our blog...

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...
