September Update

Many things have happened this month that were blog worthy. I have blogged about most of them, to bad they never made it from my head to my blog:-} The two biggest highlights of this month were seeing McCain and Palin (see post below) and..........

having a new baby join our family. We picked up Nathan from the hospital when he was three days old. He is a sweet little guy, and is doing well. His parents seem to want to do what it takes to get him back. They were at the hospital when I picked up Nathan. They asked for a Chaplin to pray with them. They told the Chaplin that they had gotten away from God. We are praying that we will be able to minister to them.

Another special thing for us was being able to see Olivia. It was good for us to be able to see that she is doing good with her new family. She defiantly remembered us and had a good time playing with the kids.

She found Chris's shoes and socks and put them on~funny kid

She loved holding Nathan. That is her baby sister Kyllie in the picture.

We have also taken 2 field trips this month. The first one was a picnic with some other homeschoolers and then we went to the firehouse for a tour. For our second field trip we went to the Cincinnati Zoo. We had a fun family day with monkeys abounding~they just happened to be of the two legged verity and they were related to ME!

Tim and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary on the 25th. We had a nice evening dinning out and then enjoying Starbucks at one of our favorite spots on the riverfront. It is great being married to your best friend! We have been redoing our bedroom and are almost finished. I will share pictures when it gets done. Thanks honey for spending so many long ours painting it for me!
I think that about wraps up this month. Maybe next month will be slow and boring~ha ha

Today we left our house at 5:40 and drove about 45min, stood in a long line and then waited for 3 hours in the rain to see John McCain and Sarah Palin. And it was worth it!!! I had prayed that we would be able to shake hands with the candidates, but when we got there and saw how many people were already there, I kind of gave up. But God worked it out that we got to be right on the line where they walked from, and back to their bus.We were pretty close to the podium but behind it. That was OK with me to be able to shake hands with them!

Gov.Sarah Palin ~She was very gracious and personable. When asked for an autograph I heard her say "Thank-you for asking me to do that" ~WOW

Todd Palin~he was almost as popular as his wife. He looked like he was having the time of his life.

This was while we were waiting in line.

This girl was beside us and I had her pegged as a liberal. Sure enough while they were speaking she pulled out a sign thath said "Be a Maveric Stop Global Warming."
