Raccoon Nest!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday evening (the 25th) while we were finishing up dinner I looked out our dining room window and saw a big raccoon in the tree right outside the window. We found it was a nest with at least two baby raccoons and got out our cameras and binoculars to view them better.

Now we get to view them every day and it’s SOOOOOOO neat and fun!! Here’s some of the pictures we took.

Mama’s conked out!

Ouch!

Finally, I think this will be my last post for the Day!

When I was quite young, I fell off a chair and hit my head. Now I have a cute scar.

Splash! It’s Summer

With the hot weather, we decided to play in our baby pool one day in May. Then we decided to have a little more fun by throwing buckets of cold water on each.

I enjoy the refreshing dumper.

Minnesota

In May I went on my first plane ride and it was to Minnesota. It was just Dad, Mom, and I who went for Josiah’s graduation. We had a good time with Josiah and Gabriel along with friends of the boys.

A Birthday

Even though my 16th Birthday was over 2 months ago, I decided to write a little something about it now. I always have a strawberry cake because it is sooooo good!

Quiet Time

“I call this time” (slipping away to be with God in study and prayer) “with God ‘the great exchange.’ Away from the world and hidden from public view, I exchange…

my weariness for His strength,

my weakness for His power,

my darkness for His light,

my problems for His solutions,

my burdens for His freedom,

my frustrations for His peace,

my turmoil for His calm,

my hopes for His promises,

my afflictions for His balm of comfort,

my questions for His answers,

my confusion for His knowledge,

my doubt for His assurance,

my nothingness for His awesomeness,

the temporal for the eternal, and

the impossible for the possible!”
