Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

I'm Still Here

Things have been a little busy around here.  We started school last week, but we're not in full swing.  Seth's soccer games started, Jack starts soccer practice, along with taking karate.  My days are packed full of thing that I need to accomplish, and I may succeed at 3/4 of them for now.

Today, we did school, completed most things (except Ivy's math).  Seth had a soccer game at 4:30, which was a 30 minute drive into town.  So, I packed the girls a sandwich dinner with fruit.  Mike and Seth had dinner with Jordan and her friend, John.  After the game, Jack had karate class.  We got home, gave the girls' baths, talked a bit and put them to bed.  It was 10:00 pm and Jack comes into the kitchen.  It was not until then that I realized that I had not even fed Jack dinner!  Yes, give me the Bad Mom Award!  

Now, back to the soccer game...the girls were off playing while I was sitting on the bleachers.  I looked over at Joy, who was slowly making her way to me.  There was some commotion, then Joy started screaming.  A dog had bit her on the lip!  She had a cut on the inside of her mouth, very tiny though.  It had taken me by surprise, and I did not even know how to respond to the owners, other than tell them that she was fine. I did not want them to feel badly.  After she settled down a bit, she said, "Millie is nice."  (Millie is our dog)  She's never been afraid of dogs, and I hope this does not affect her.

She's a sweetie, even with her temper.  Today, I asked her why she was so tiny.  In her own wisdom, she replied, "Because I be that way."  I love her.

Oh gracious those kind of moments are so scary!! Glad she's ok! Nothing like a normal soccer game turning into a whole nother' adventure...as if you didn't have enough going on. LOL

Wow, poor girl. How scary. When I was growing up, I had dogs across the street that would jump over their fence and run at me and my sister. It left me scared of dogs for quite some time. I hope that's not the case for Joy.
