Outside Fun!

So, we noticed, like most toddlers, that Jordyn loves to slide, climb, and swing. We just decided to get a swing set and slide of our own instead of being that creepy family at McDonald's play place everyday. Now she has her own little playground oasis that is perfect for her and her friends to play with. Here are some shots from Spring Break with her Aunt Cindy!

I think this is the way up...
Now we are ready.
And we're off...
Picking up speed!
How did you take three pictures of such a short slide?

She has no swinging threshold.
"He's got the whole world in His hands."

It has been a really fun Spring Break, especially for Jordyn. She has gotten to see her daddy all day, everyday. Now, looking forward to summer and a new baby in October!

Creating New Life is So Beautifully Difficult.

So...finding the time and energy to blog has been difficult lately. Between constant/nighttime sickness and persistent fatigue, I am spent. Thank God for His promise in John 16:21,
"When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world."
Nearly 11 weeks in, and whatever of "me" that I haven't given to Jordyn is poured into the life being formed inside me. A life that is currently the size of a "cumquat", whatever that is. (pictured above) At the moment, he or she (or they) are already undergoing what would seem to be finishing touches. For instance, the taste buds and fingerprints are forming this week. Also, no more webbed feet and hands. In fact, he or she is basically a smaller version of what they will be. Interestingly enough, Jordyn saw a video of the fetus at only 7 weeks and said, "baby". Isn't that comical? Scientists are trying to decide at what point a "blob of tissues" becomes a "right-bearing moral agent", and my 18 month old recognized that it was, in fact, a baby at just 7 weeks without any prompting. This is what the Bible calls "suppressing the truth in unrighteousness". The willfully ignorant will undergo the greatest condemnation. (Luke 12:42-48)

In other news: we got an iPad Air! Jordyn likes it a lot. It will be, and has already proven to be, a wonderful tool for homeschooling. This means, we now accept iTunes gift cards. Thanks!!

Fun with the iPad:

"Journey To The Center Of The....State."

So, we went to Conway for the first time in nearly a year. It was a great visit! Jordyn had a blast with Nana. I believe she will really be looking forward to going to Nana's house next time.
Can we go to Nana's please??

What? We are going?

Don't mess around about this... Are we?

Oh yeah!! Goin to Nana's!
Although we do not miss Conway, at all, it was nice to see Alvin's family. We are constantly reminded of God's faithfulness to us and are hopeful and confident that He will do the same in those that we love so dearly.
Isa 59:1-3 ESV Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; (2) but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.
Isa 59:21 ESV "And as for me, this is my covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your offspring, or out of the mouth of your children's offspring," says the LORD, "from this time forth and forevermore."
