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


New Shoes

I've been needing to buy Ivy some winter clothing.  I had purchased some jeans/khakis in September, but she prefers the soft fabric of leggings.  Since Ivy is having surgery in less than 4 weeks, I thought I should buy some soft pants for her.  She will be having her cleft/gum line repaired.  The doctor will be doing a bone graft, using bone from her hip, thus the need for soft pants soon.  She's hard to buy for since she is still so tiny 'round.  I had to buy 6/6x, and am hoping that I get the winter season out of them since we're cutting it close on the length.  Once at the mall, I realized that Ivy needed some shoes, too.  We had plenty of sandals for her.  Since the weather is still comfortable around here, she still wears them when she goes out to play.  But, I bought her a pair of black Mary Janes.  

She was so cute because she wanted to put them on as soon as we got home.  Then she was just so proud and excited about those shoes she wore them all evening and then asked me if she could put them in her closet.  It is so funny the things we just assume she knows and take for granted.  I'm glad that new shoes make her happy.

The shoe store had a video screen up and Go Diego, Go! was playing.  As we were walking by the screen, all my children were watching, but wouldn't you know that Joy had to be the one who walked right into a whole display of Iron Man tennis shoes, about 20 boxes, and knocked them all down.  Poor girl was so upset she started crying.  My mother-in-law calls her a "bull in a China cabinet."  

Speaking of Joy, I found her sleeping in a hall closet again.  I guess the darkness puts her right to sleep, and she is still in need of a nap.

3 kind words:

Football and Fried Rice

Oh, Joy - sweet Joy!! I could almost cry for her imagining how she felt. I, too, am a bull in a China cabinet!

Praying for Ivy's upcoming surgery - that the surgery is quick and that she recovers quickly and well!


Learning Together at Home

I think I would like to meet Miss Joy someday. She seems like a very special little girl. Praying that Ivy's surgery is completed well and that she recovers quickly! We are supposed to be having Garnet's bone graft done in the next couple of months as well. Let me know if you end up with any tips that help her feel more comfortable.

Deb, Russ, Lily, Lucy and Lainey

Cheri, praying for Ivy's upcoming surgery. Lainey is having surgery on the 8th of December, too!
