Joyanne has graduated to the highchair. Before, she sat in a little rocker near the floor, but she has entered a squealing stage and prefers to be up where she can see action!
We have entered week 2 of being out of our house while renovations happen. It has dawned on us that this is a preview of our future! Parenting "in transit," if you want to call it. To say, "We'll deal with that issue when we're home and in our normal routine," won't suffice, as previously thought. This is how life is going to be. We are going to have to learn to deal with issues as they arise. Things aren't going to be as they were. (Haha, did I just say "easy"?)
We pray our children will learn to be even more adaptable and resilient, and that God will lavish grace on us as we stumble through this high calling we refer to as "parenting." And that we will lavish the grace we have received onto our children and each other too!
