Do you see it? Look closer....... now? It is the difference between boys and girls. Look at Molly with a sweet bouquet of flowers gently cradled in her arm with that lovely smile on her face; then Maddie, only 22mo old, working so intently arranging her flowers; then there's Timothy holding a sprawling handful of flowers with roots attached, littering my porch with clumps of dirt, and a huge smile on his dirty little face. Isn't it beautiful. I can't even begin to explain how that sprawling, dirty, bouquet is just as beautiful as the dainty, carefully arranged one. This is my favorite part of my job, these daily glimpses into "the heart of a child", it is truly amazing! The day after our trip to the emergency room Ben took Tim on his very first all night hiking trip. The trip had been planned for so long they decided to go broken arm and all! Timothy carried his own pack in on the 2 mile hike to camp, I am so proud of my little man! They had a wonderful time and came home tired and hungry the next day. I keep forgetting to post this bubble I made for a friend of my moms. I used linen, light blue bias binding, and I appliqued a little owl on the front. The mama who was to receive this wanted something plain and boyish, I hope this fits the bill!

Yep, it's broke! He was wrestling with his little cousins and his arm ended up on bottom. He is so proud of his blue cast, he thinks it is so tough! How tiny is that cast! We knew it would happen one day, I'm surprised- as rough as he is - that it has been this long. This happened last night but he did not act like it hurt too bad, so we let it go. Then around 1am he woke crying, by then he was hurting. This morning we went to the emergency room (our family doc can't cast or X-ray in the office) where they said his arm was broke, put him in a splint, and sent us to the orthopedic doc for a bright blue cast.

I am not able to upload pictures right now. Blogger says they know about the problem and they are working on it. I know it is possible to post without pictures, but it just hurts my feelings! I love to share the pics of my projects. I have some good pictures to share too, and an announcement to make. Our babies are home!!!! Lily and Iris are happily sleeping in their own lil cradle tonight! Rae and Jake are so happy to have them home, they are WONDERFUL parents. I am so proud of my baby sister, she is such a natural mother. I can't wait to be a real aunt, the kind that Rae has been these past 6 years! I will give them candy, let them stay up late, make them dresses, buy them ridiculous toys, and wake them up from naps to hold them! I am so excited! I will try to post with pictures tomorrow.

This picture was taken today, aren't they beautiful. Now that you've seen Lily you have seen Iris! You can tell how small she is (aprox. 3 lbs) compared to Rae's hand. The girls are still doing great, but Rae and Jake are exhausted. Please continue to pray for them.
