I have never..

Blogged in the middle of the night before. I have this nasty cough which is 10x worse when I am laying down and I have already been up since 1:30. When I can't sleep, I spend most of my time praying, but now it 4 am and I need a little change of pace.

I am thankful Carl called in for me last night saying I couldn't read at church. I was trying so hard to convince myself that I would be fine (and I was fine up until I laid down and tried to go to sleep), but he knows me best and I listened to his advice. I was reading out the first chapter in Ruth. I love this book and I am bummed because I spent all week on making sure I wasn't tongue tied saying Elimelech - Naomi's husband. I laughed at myself more than once when I would try to say it and it would come out all garbled because I would add letter or skip some too.

I have a funny story. Last week at church, while I was listening to the text reading, I thought to myself, "I am so glad that I don't have to get up in front of church and read those really long names." Ha - I know God was laughing at that thought because no more than 2 minutes after church the pastor asked if I would willing to read next week.

Randomness from our house:

Adie really has this potty training thing down! She has been even waking up from naps dry. The only thing is to not put her in timeout in her crib when she hasn't pooped in a while.

Lydia has been my little artist using just about anything for a canvas. Napkins seem to be her favorite right now.

Grace is starting to take off with reading and learning her directions. In the van, she always tells me the direction that we are traveling and what the temperature is outside. She is waiting for it to be in the 60's, 70's and 80's. ("because it is just more fun!")

I hope you feel better soon, my friend!

Yay for the potty training, the art and the reading! Such fun milestones!

Love you!
