I realize that after my last post and then an extended absence from around here, you might be nervous that perhaps I got lost in the trash in my van or something. Rest assured, we are all still here and doing well. Finally everyone is in good health, and Caden is only waking up about once or twice a night. Which, hello, we should clearly start writing our parenting book now: "How to almost get your one and a half year old to almost sleep through the night." It will be a bestseller, I'm sure.

Since I simply cannot seem to find five minutes to sit down and write a little bit about what I'm actually feeling, you know, in the deepest recesses of my heart, I thought I'd at least share some of my favorite recent reads and links with y'all. Because I love you.
This made me laugh. Out loud. Also, it made me grateful I am normal, and my kids are normal. Well, mostly normal. 46 Reasons My Three Year Old Might be Freaking Out

This. Why I Stopped Telling.

An Interview with Shane Claiborne. I love this especially: "So even if we don’t all respond in the exact same way, we can all, for example, see the suffering of this world as something we are called to enter into instead of flee from. We can reject the patterns of, for example, suburban sprawl that are often built around moving away from pain, or away from neighborhoods of high crime, or away from people who don’t look like us, and respond instead to the gospel inertia that invites us to enter into that pain. So this means we also have to challenge some of those patterns of consumerism and insulation, and sprawl, and homogeneity."

Books I've read so far this year:
- Wonder
- Behind the Beautiful Forevers
- Wild (From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail)
- Fatherless Generation
 -Reluctant Prophet and Unexpected Dismounts
- Fist Stick Knife Gun: A Personal History of Violence

By the way, have you seen my side-bar of links? I try to keep it updated with what I've been reading and recommend reading. But you'll have to click over to the actual blog to see it, just in case you're reading in google-reader or something similar.
*Did you notice our new re-upholstered loveseat? That's the one I told you about that I love and Adam hates. But Zack falls asleep on it every time, so I think the vote is 2-1 for it. Oh and did you also notice my other new decor addition? I like to call it: the tv antennae on top of the candle. It's lovely, right?


  1. Haha...we are always moving our antenna around trying to get the best signal. We have the basic channels and netflix. Anywho...I wish we lived closer so we could start a book club, pray together (in person) and well, just hang out. : )

  2. That SC quote is SO good...

    Have a great day, Beccs!


I LOVE hearing from you. Thank-you for reading and interacting, and being the best!
