The Big Day

Today is the big day we take our daughter to Children's Hospital for an appointment with the pediatric gastroenterologist to find out more about her tummy aches. Her celiac panel came back positive so off we go today to find out more. She complains so very much about her "tummy aches" and she picks at her tummy and begs for her "picky feet" (penguin ice pack, its a long story but picky feet is the word penguin and happy feet all into one, she is so cute!)

She is excited to go to the doctor so she can "get her tummy fixed" but as her mommy I'm nervous. I know there isn't anything to be nervous about but this is my baby going through all this stuff! Well at any rate, have to finish getting the kiddos ready so we can leave! Be praying for us please!

Simply Summer

It's crazy how fast this summer is going by! My beans and peas are growing fast and I have some tomatoes starting to ripen already! This is the quickest I have ever seen that before! 

The weather has been incredibly hot, so maybe that has something to do with it. Either way my garden needs to be tilled already again! The kids love learning about the plants in the garden, it is just so sweet watching them learn and say "bean" and "peas", "zucchini", etc!!! I love it! They are also learning to walk in between the rows instead of plowing right through or walking on top my plants! 

With the coming of the heat marks the going out of my energy and motivation! It's so hard to keep house when it's so hot! The only room that we have air conditioning in is the living room, which I am very, very, very grateful to have! 

Well, I suppose, time to get back in the cooler living room while I sort through some papers and wait for my laundry to dry out on the line! 

Stayin' Cool in the Country!
