Oh and somewhere in my crazy week with no husband and enough vomit to well...... never mind; I managed to drive Morgan on a field trip out to Palm Springs. They went to the kids museum out there. Then she also had her swim-a-thon last night. I had to wrap poor Ryanne up in her PJ's and a blanket and throw her in the jogging stroller (which just for the record has never been jogged behind) But Morgan met her goal of 100 laps and earned around $200! Great job Morgan. She was tired and dragging today.
The best part? Yesterday my friend Jessica made me this little gift below and left it on my front door step to cheer me up. Thank you so much Jess!! That blessed me to know you weren't just thinking of me but you acted on that thought in a very kind way. The little bucket is full of this new tea from trader joes that Jessica got me hooked on. One is white pomegranit and the other white blueberry. Yummy!! Thanks to everyone who has called, e-mailed or prayed for me this past week. I am feeling a bit better and my attitude has improved greatly! :)
On another note I just wanted to thank Christy P. for the idea to adopt a soldier over seas. You can click on her blog over to the right and see her post regarding this topic. The girls and I have started the process and are very excited. Whether you like the president or agree with the war is really beside the point. The point really is that these men and women and their families sacrifice everyday so you don't have too. They allow you to have freedom of speech (on your blogs) allow you the freedom to pray when and where you want and walk through the streets safely and for most of you I am guessing not starving. So they need to know and believe that what they gave up to go is not in vain. Please take the time to look at this web site and prayerfully consider supporting our troops. At one time Between Dan & I we had five family members over seas and a dear friend of mine still remains so this is near and dear to our hearts. Plus I desire to teach my girls at a very young age to have compassion for others and respect for their country. http://www.adoptaplatoon.org/new
