We are still working on Baby Girl's issues and asking God to show us how we can help her. She has her good times and her bad times, and we are just holding her and loving her through it all. I finished reading The Connected Family, and we tried out the suggested "aggression" cookie recipe. They are actually oatmeal cookies, but you can work out your stress kneading the dough by hand, as opposed to using a mixer. Bug helped me make them, and then all the kiddos helped him eat them. It was a nice way to incorporate family time and learning (how to bake, read a recipe, measure, discuss fractions, observe a chemical change.) I played some games with the kiddos, both card games and board games (which involve either reading, memorizing, logic, and/or math skills.) Also, our "fun" math books came, so we'll be looking through those this week & picking activities to do. And, most of all, this coming week will be spent on wedding preparations! That's right, my oldest is getting married this coming weekend. Boy, I'm feeling old now! Seriously, though, my soon to be daughter-in-law is precious, and I am glad to have her officially join our family. Here's to exciting times ahead!
