Unplanned Fun

Today has been another fun day. Church went well. I had Davids go in Olivia's class with her since the kids his age had church at the other service and so that he would hopefully feel more comfortable. When I asked him how it was, he yawned! :) LOL Oh well! Olivia told me he was singing and dancing with the music. :)

On the way home I saw that people were setting up chairs to watch a parade and remembered that the festival's end parade was going to start soon. I always have our chairs in the back, so we pulled over and set them up. We were dressed for church, and church is cold inside, the only downfall! :) Davids said in Latvia it is not this hot! We did have to wait a while...

They got umbrellas out to shade themselves...

Liam snuggled up on the chair with Davids...

And took a five minute snooze...

When it started, there was a whole procession of firetrucks and ambulances and they were LOUD! Davids was NOT liking it at all, but then he saw Liam didn't either, took his hands off his own ears, and placed them over Liam's. So Braeden put his hands over Davids'. :)

Once the candy started coming, it was no holds barred... they were off!

Up above, there was a perfect circle rainbow around the sun, hard to see here, but it was so cool...

There were a few water trucks where they were squirting the spectators... Davids was ALL about it!

The only downfall, to me anyway, was that they were given a huge bucket FULL of candy that is now in our cabinet... it will last us until at LEAST Christmas! Crazy!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
