Full Hearts

Our lives are brimming with happiness and wonderful things. There just seems to be abundant blessings pouring from the heavens to fill our hearts and home. Peace has been the biggest blessing of late- that simple contentedness that so often eludes us. Another is Holy Places where the spirit of the Lord can touch our hearts. I am so grateful for a kind and merciful Father in Heaven that I know has absolute knowledge of me. I am truly a child of God!

Craig starts a new job tomorrow! He will be a finance manager for an oil servicing company here in Houston. He is sooo excited for this position as it's one he's looked forward to for many years. I'm excited that there is practically zero travel. The job is on the other side of town so we are looking for a place to call home closer to his work. Hopefully soon I can post that we have a home of our own.

Sierra started going to preschool. She goes Friday mornings for an hour and a half with two other little girls. They rotate homes, so once a month I get to teach the little darlings. I still do preschool with her everyday at home and love the opportunity to incorporate gospel teaching into the curriculum. I love that part of my "job" and am considering starting a preschool once we have a place of our own.

Gideon just turned two! What a happy boy he was blowing out his candles and opening up presents. I love this age of discovery and excitement over everything. The emotions are so pure- two years old is one of my favorite ages! Though his cognitive and motor skills are at 30 months, his speech is just at 12 months, so he starts speech therapy next week. He tries so hard to speak but it just isn't working for him.

I am getting so anxious for the fall weather and the upcoming holidays. I love that feeling of change in the air when you can begin to anticipate wonderful things coming your way.

Congratulations, you guys deserve it! I'm sad you guys will be moving farther away, but I know you guys will love it. Lynette, I love hearing about all the things you do with your kids. You are a great mom!

I'm happy for you guys. It's great to do something that you love. Even greater that there is not a long commute. Have fun looking for houses. I really enjoyed it.
I wish we lived closer. I am doing preschool with my little Abby at home too. I'm also doing a little coop with some friends on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So far it hasn't worked out so well. Hopefully this week will be better. I've thought about opening a preschool in our home. If we lived closer then we could do it together. That would be fun, huh?!
Take care! Love, Britta

Thanks for sharing your testimony and for your thankful heart. You are so inspiring to me. Can't wait to see things continue to unfold for you and your family.
