Week 1 of Fall Challenge

Up late after a long debate with DH, now relaxing with a quick blog post. Tomorrow starts the first week of Women Living Well's Fall Challenge - she is giving one practical and one spiritual tip each week to make our homes inviting and welcoming and loving. I can use all the help I can get! So tomorrow, I'm getting out my candle... and then working on her much-more challenging spiritual tip.

Are You Distracted and Distant or Making Your Home a Haven?

Oh, how very, very, very convicting.... definitely check out her article!

This week will have preschool, AWANA, MOMS Club, and our meeting with the state therapy people - both to transfer our care to the next department, and to set up a schedule for baby's therapy. I find the whole process rather intimidating - I'll be glad when it's over! And the bigger challenge will be finding things to do with our eldest while I am doing therapy with baby. I do NOT want to use the TV as a babysitter, especially multiple times a week. I am considering trying to hire babysitting.... but that could get pricey. I would appreciate prayer for the whole process, and that I would be able to get the scheduling and the personnel issues worked out easily and smoothly!

Have a great week, everyone! Love to all!

  1. You may be able to engage your older son in the therapy process with the baby. Depends on what the therapy is.

    I have friends who had an older young child when their baby was born, and they were able to get her involved in a lot of the stuff (the baby had a genetic defect and needed lots of therapy to learn how to crawl and then to walk and to talk).

    The good thing about kids that age is that everything is a game and a learning experience, so he may even think it's fun to join in!
