Today was a good day, and a not so goo day... The good was that we had a great time with the girls, I made pancakes for breakfast, and was totally surprised by how much Stacy can eat. I already knew that Jackie has a healthy appetite, but usually Stacy doesn't eat that much. Maybe it is because of the pancakes. She ate almost as many as Jason. It has been the first time I've made pancakes in a while (maybe four months) and they did come out particularly good this time. Not sure what I did differently... ;-)

After breakfast we jumped into the van and headed over to the park, to meet with Anthony Netto. He was at Balboa Park (the Malory Sports area), where there was a bunch of archery going on. He had set up a time for Jason to get some shots in, and of course, since I was there I took a few shots as well. Anthony brought along another paramobile for Jason to ride and both the girls got to jump on to the back and were standing there while Daddy took a few shots. Actually it was kind of funny to watch Jason attempt to aim his arrow and then Jackie start jumping up and down on the back of the paragolfer. The other archers were giving him a hard time and asking what was the matter and why was he taking so long to shoot. It was all in good fun, and the girls were enjoying it to. This is where the not so good news comes in - I was attempting to use my camera when it just simply decided to stop working. I have plenty of battery and all the settings were in the right place. I'm going to have to take it to someone who knows a little more about it than I do.

We got back to the house a little later than we wanted, so the girls had to have a quick lunch and then go down for their naps. It is really kind of amazing to me how well they do go down, and seem happy to take their naps. Most other kids I've seen always want to stay up, even if they are very tired. They slept for a couple of hours and then got up. While they slept I did a couple loads of clothes, and even did a couple more before the day was done - now I have a bunch of folding to do.

Finally, after dinner (spaghetti and meatballs) they went up for their bath. I called Grandma while they were in the tub and let her talk to them for a couple of minutes (speaker phones are great). It is so good to hear Jackie talking as much as she does. You can only understand about half of what she says, but she just keeps on talking, and she is just as happy as can be. I put them to bed and then read them Goldie Locks and The Three Bears, then we all sang Itsy Bitsy Spider and they went to sleep. I threw the last load in the drier and then made sure Jason didn't need anything. I came up here and got the blog out of the way before I went to bed. Tomorrow is an early day, so I need to get to bed early. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers and Take care and stay positive.

  1. Hope it's something simple with your camera!
    Still praying!
    Psalms 69:1-3, 13 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God...But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

  2. Pour out your heart to the Lord! He hears! Praying!
    Psalms 42:1-5 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
