"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

A Monster Off Her Back......(& A Ruthie update)


OK……FINALLY!!!!

We have conquered the monster!

The monster of fear!
Scared 2
The fear of blood & pain……

No Pain No Gain
& yes, the fear of speed.
Runner

Do you wonder what I’m talking about?

(Well, even if you don’t….you’re still reading this….
so you MUST be a tiny bit interested, right? wink)

Well....here you go!
Yep….we now have an official BIKE RIDER!!!

I remember hour after hour riding the circle of my cul-d-sac as a kid….no matter the weather.

What fun it is, to see her out in ours…..circling round & round & round again!

(Almost a commentary on the “circles of life," huh?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now, Ruthie…..

She still isn’t putting any weight on her foot.

Masterfully, though, she hobbles around on one foot & the heel of her injured foot.

But, her NEW preferred method of moving around is a weird sort of hopping on both knees. (actually, she REALLY wants me to carry her everywhere, but alas…that is not to be-with an almost one year old in the house!) I wanted to bet a better video than this, but you’ll get the idea! Super cute, but…..oh, do I feel sorry for her!


I know her eyes are closed,
but it's the only non-moving pic I could get!
She is ON THE GO, in spite of her injury!

Please keep praying for her!

Congrats ANA!!!! And I am still praying for that sweet little girl. Hey when do you all leave for camp? We should really work out some details soon so I can sneak a quick visit in with you guys. :)

Ana is doing so well on her bike...it's a great video of her.

And poor Ruthie...will continue to pray for healing for her foot. She is quite resourceful getting round that way isn't she?

Take care,
Anna

Woo hoo Ana!!! I spent all summer on my bike riding everywhere when I was a kid. They really are so of the best childhood memories!!

I'm glad Ruthie is mobile, wow what a little trooper.
Have a great week
