random stuff...

The past few days have been quite fast. Not that much has happened or that I've had any amazing thoughts, but life has been good.
We went to the lake this evening with my parents. It was so refreshing, after such a warm day, to spend the last few hours of daylight in the midst of God's creation. To be able to splash in to the lukewarm water and feel its tinge of coolness refresh every inch of skin. There is just something about water...it's so peaceful and calming...and no matter how awake you felt before you dove into it you come out relaxed and ready to curl up in a towel and close your eyes....for just a few moments. Ahh!

oh...but that can't happen...cause my 2 boys are too excited about the boat ride that Pops is taking them on. Tobin especially is captivated by all the things around him. It's so neat to see the world thru his eyes...he has become our commentator on life. You definately won't miss anything with him around...he sees and hears it all. :-) It's really fun......until you repeat the same things back to him for the millionth time, just because he wants to know he's understood, but then, I would miss out on the wonderful view of life he has to offer. It's so simple, exciting and fun. He is growing up... too fast...I never thought it would be this fast. It seems it was only yesterday he was a helpless newborn in my arms, now he is a big boy who wants to go and do and learn by himself. I really didn't think I'd be learning to let go this soon. I guess it's all apart of a process.

We are currently trying to get Josiah to walk. He loves to walk around holding onto someones hand...but he won't take that first step by himself. I really thought that he was going to do so this morning, and I would have had a really exciting blog to write. It will be one day soon...then I will writing about him growing too fast and letting go...hahaha...looks like a pattern is starting to develop. Actually, I think I have let my boys go as much as I can...because they are in God's hands and there they will stay. I know that is the only safe 'place' for them, I definately can't love or protect or discipline like my heavenly Father.

I'm all over the place tonight...just lots of random thoughts flowing thru my mind. I'm trying to get my family living practically and frugally. With that in mind, I'm really considering going to cloth diapers, just at night for awhile, then I might add day times at home. I'm not sure if I can handle it...haha....but I figure it will definately save us money in the long run and it's better for them. So if anyone reading this has any cloth diaper advice...I sure would love to have it! I'm going to start researching how to do this. (I really never thought...I guess my natural side is really starting to take hold even more...haha...that's the reason I'm a hippiemommie)

I think that's enough randomness for tonight. Can't believe the time...and so much still to do. Oh well...goodnight!

Hey Jordana,
I love reading your blog. Your honest approach to motherhood is very refreshing! We do need to get together again sometime :) I assume you're still in Kingsport?

Jordana, on the cloth diapers thing...I comment you for considering it in today's culture. I used them with all my girls, and I always felt really good about putting real cotton against their skin. You do have to be more aware when they are wet, though. I used diaper service with Heidi, which is a long story I will tell you if you want to hear sometime, and I loved using it, by the way. But it was almost as expensive as disposables. I had no choise, though. Anyway, it keeps you busy washing, but it does save money. I liked the none prefolded best, but I don't even know if you can buy that kind anymore. Let me know how it is going if you decide to really switch. There are really good things about doing that. Love, Ms. Lorie

Thanks mom, I hope not too many people read your comment! :) It's actually not a common thing I share with people about myself!

:-) thanks for the smiles. Lorie, thank you for your post. I appreciate your support and encouragement! I think it will definately be a big step, but I'm almost to the point of being totally for it!
