A first birthday mess

We were so blessed to get to spend John's first birthday with family. Our family in-love (as Barb puts it) was celebrating the illustrious career of Tim in Keokuk, IA. We trekked down and were so blessed and excited to get to be there for the two celebrations.

There is one thing I can say about John's cake eating. The boy is efficient!

Mommy loves you, John Myron.

With Joy

How can one not have joy with boys as adorable as these?

Catch Up

I feel like the weeks have just been getting away from me. Here we are with only three weeks and two days left in the school year. We are a mere 6 days away from John's first birthday (seriously, a year?). We are headed into our third weekend of major plans. All of these things are great and fun and worth it but...
I feel a bit like a hamster on the wheel, just spinning in circles. My heart is burdened with so much. A friend in great need, a sister in Christ who is learning to be a new mom, a Grandma having surgery, a sister newly married, a ministry that needs my help. How does one ever prioritize correctly?
