It's been a while

I wish I could do it all! But since I can't, my blogging efforts have been the first to fall by the wayside. But I'm here right now, so let me briefly say, Baby is doing very well. She is now over the 7 lb. mark and is filling out in her face and tummy. She is on the verge of intentionally smiling and is growng some new fuzz on her head. We think she's adorable.
Her big brother is working hard on his phonics, learning to sound out words and read short sentences. I hope to post more about the phonics program that I am using with him. Today I was teaching him how to play Uno, as he has already mastered other games like Chutes & Ladders, Guess Who and Junior Scrabble. We also play a easy version of Mastermind which in its original rules is quite challenging.
Keeping the house clean for more than 24 hours has proven to be impossible. I have no idea where the mess comes from exactly, but it arrives and obstinately refuses to leave! Oh dear.
Today my husband is painting our front door entryway. Long ago, I mentioned posting pics of our house, well perhaps with more paint on the walls I can take some pics to show the areas that have been worked on. Maybe, just maybe.

Colossians 1:10-13
And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.
