Wet and Wild

We had another really good day today... and getting even more comfortable with one another which is great!

After a morning of playing together well, we had a friend and her two littles over for lunch and play time. It was very fun! My friend hasn't been over to see the house before so I was able to show her around and the kids all played really well.

We then went to the eye doctor for Davids. We are to take him to have both his eyes and teeth checked while he's here. A friend at work told her daughter, who works at our area's best optometrist, and before I even knew anything about it, she had gone before their board and approved to give him a free exam and glasses if he were to need them.

The people there were wonderful today! They even came out and gave all of the kids free tshirts! The back is cute, and especially fitting as Braeden sings the song that it was taken from! It says "Jeepers Creepers take care of your Peepers!" So cute! I think I'm actually going to send all four back with Davids. Two will fit him and I'm sure the other two can be community property for others there.

The doctor said he had great eyes and could even be a pilot if he chose, his sight was so good. He asked Davids during the exam what he thought of America and Davids gave him a huge grin and a big thumbs up! So cute!

Following his exam, I took the kids to our local splash park. (Not thinking of course that after getting his eyes dilated they would be extra sensitive to light! :( )

He tried the water a bit, and then layed out a while to rest his eyes. NO complaining or negativity AT ALL. Such a trooper! And Braeden and Liam later kept him company!!!

Braeden met up with a friend of his for a while (unplanned!). She goes to our church and also was in class with him not this past year but the one prior. He loves her so much, he used to say all the time he was going to marry her! :) He was shy when he first saw her today, but got over that quickly!

And Davids loved the water when he was in it!!! (He's such a skinny, tiny thing! The suit he has on is a 10-12!)

Liam and Davids sharing some grapes...

Liam's teeth were chattering (the water was a bit cold) even with his towel around him, so Davids took his off and put his towel around Liam's, so sweet!

Later I got out my bucket of legos I had brought home from my classroom for the summer. Most of them are Harry Potter legos and since he's read all of the books, Davids loves Harry Potter. They played legos for hours today and he and Olivia built this...

After dinner we walked down the road to the park and played a bit. Davids was great at pushing Braeden on the swings, and sat so quiet as we watched a fisherman at the river for a bit, it was a great ending to a very good day!

Poor Liam has just been knocked out by the end of the day lately... have NO idea WHY!? LOL Last night he and I were laying on my bed and he was trying to convince me to go up to his room and play with him, and just CRASHED. Tonight as the kids were playing Mario Kart, OUT! :) Olivia was thrilled to be able to take this picture!


I have been having a great time right along with you all. Thanks for blogging about Davids time. Its been fun keeping up

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
