New machine @ Store & fun time out with kids

Dave left out of town with a friend last night and will not be home till tomorrow afternoon. We all miss him a lot but the friend was really in need of support and we are supporting Daddy as he does that for his friend. With Dave out of town, I got to go to the store this morning to get the machine for our new 24 flavors of soft serve and get a lesson in how that works. It is quite the machine and I got lots of samples and I don't usually eat ice cream at 11:00 AM but it was good and quite the program that I think will bring a lot of return business once people come in and try it. We have the machine on a 2 week trial basis and that will include the week of spring break here so that should give us a good idea of how well this program would work for us.

The kids didn't get to get out much today as the weather was not that cooperative so we headed to Company Creek Pizza for dinner. Mackenzie had a cheeseburger and fries - with sauce of course and Chase had "new" fish and french fries with tartar sauce. They each played their dollar of quarters in video games. They are still at the cheap age as they think they are still playing even when the big "game over" is flashing in the middle of the screen.

Chase and I spent a long time today working on writing his letters. He finally seems interested in that and is recognizing letters on the frig and putting them together to try to spell words now. His speech is getting much clearer every week and his talks a mile a minute (I don't have any idea where he got that, probably from his Mamma). He called Mamma tonight to tell her that he learned to write his own name today. He now just wanted more paper and more words written for him to copy. It is nice to see him becoming interested in that.

Kids are in bed and I have things ready for class at church tomorrow when we will be studying Moses parting the Red Sea. It think the kids will enjoy that. They still play Moses and Pharoah at home and tell one another to "Let my people go" and play Joseph and the Innkeeper and "sorry no room". They absorb so much of this at this age and they so look forward to it each week. It is a lot of work for me but thanks to Mom and Dad I have materials from the extras they have at Roseburg and it is all put together by week and I just have to supplement with activities each week. It may be a lot of work but the rewards are eternal and I can't think of a better way to spend my time than on my children's walk with God.

One last thing, praise the Lord - Chase is at the end of his first week with no seizure meds and all is going well with no signs of any seizure activity.

Good night and sweet dreams.
