He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Even the dog!

What a week. Seems like the winter isn't quite over at least on the illness front. Joshua has come down with a nasty cough for which he was prescribed steroids. He will finish them today and start them again on Tuesday for his chemo schedule. He also has a nasty ear and sinus infection so he's on an antibiotic for that and needs daily nebs for the cough. Adam is also getting nebs for his cough and therefore is moody as that is an inhaled steroid. And finally, the dog seems to be allergic to something, I think it's her food, and she has scratched spots on her body that required a trip to the vet for you guessed it, steroids!

Calgon, PLEASE take me away!

Just because it's been so long

Not only will I give you two posts in one night, I also thought I would post a few pics so everyone could see my handsome little men!

All about Adam

I don't usually write much about Adam. He's such an easy going child that there isn't much to say. He's a great kid that is generally healthy and I am so grateful for that. He is smart as a whip, has a very extensive vocabulary of which I never know what new word he may use, and he is so excited about being 5, going to kindergarten, losing his teeth and just being like his big brother. But I just have to tell you all about a few things Adam has said/done over the past few weeks that have given me a little chuckle. I think God gave me Adam just so he could do these things on days that I really need a laugh.

First, a few weeks ago I was taking the little man into school. Joshua had to stay at home since he wasn't feeling too well so I just took Adam. Usually we have a car line drop off but on this particular day I needed to talk to his teachers so I walked him inside. As we were going through the parking lot, Adam looks down at the handicap parking space and tells me, "that's where all the old ladies have to park." I don't know where he came up with that one. I would say that it was the wheelchair that he was associating with being old, but he specified "ladies."

Next, I go to pick the twins up at school one day this past week. One of their teachers is outside and tells me she has a story for me. Great. Anytime I hear that from one of my kids teachers, my insides tighten up and I start to feel nauseous. Anyway, she goes on to tell me about how during the day they were playing around and Adam goes up to his other teacher and grabs her boobs. He then yells, "I got your hips!" Oh Adam! Jeff says he's sure that Adam will try that later in life too. I think his teachers need to work more on teaching body parts!
