"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

I'm Back......I know you missed me! Right? ;)

Well, I guess an update on our lives is long over-due. (Well, at least an update here-we know what’s going on, lol!! But, since I am HOPING our lives *might* be of some interest to a few other people out there, perhaps I should fill everyone in!!!)

Here’s the short story-(& if you want the long one-feel free to keep reading beyond this paragraph!)

We are all doing fine! (Wink-ha!)

Now, the real updates:
My Celiac diagnosis/change over to a Gluten-Free diet has been a fairly smooth transition. Dave was out of town for the first few weeks (yes, it has been almost a month!!!), so I really didn‘t have to cook much. I also spent a week (with the kids) at my parents, who already eat gluten free, as my dad got his Celiac diagnosis over 10 years ago.

I have been blessed in that I noticed an almost instantaneous burst in afternoon energy. Not sure if this is because my body is finally getting the nutrients it needs from food-or if it is more due to the Vitamin D I was deficient in that I am now taking! What do you think would make the most difference?

I have discovered in the past few days, that Celiac is actually an auto-immune disease, which I didn’t realize before, but totally makes sense, since it is an allergy to certain foods.

Ana: (Now, here is some big news in our house!)
Ana has been suffering on & off with headaches & a month or so ago, began complaining that things were blurry.

You guessed it-she has had glasses now for about two weeks & has had no headaches & no more blurry vision!!!

Ruthie has suddenly hit a stage where she doesn’t seem like a baby at all any more. She carries on in-depth conversations & asks questions that are really making her mama think!

She is very concerned that she turn 4 on her next birthday & not 1!!!!

We are having her evaluated next month to see if she needs a bit of occupational therapy, but other than that, she is progressing very well.

He is getting ready to transition to a big-boy bed here in the next few weeks. He is also showing some interest in potty training!!! Yeah!!!

He talks non-stop (yes, my BOY) & has one volume-ear piercing!

Home again-at long last!!! He had been gone for almost a month-testing a satellite out in CA! While we don’t like him being gone, I am so thankful he enjoys his job-& he is super good at it! (& I’m not biased at all! Ha!)

The kids & I spent Spring Break in Kansas & the kiddos enjoyed every minute of being spoiled by their grandparents & digging in the mud that is Eastern KS in the Spring!!!

The week before that, my sisters & I had a ball with some old friends that came out for their Spring Break!

We have been busy, but we are all doing great, & I-for one, have missed my “cheap therapy.” (That’s what one of my friends calls her blog!) I expect to be back for a while now!!!
