Updates

OK, so I have about 10 minutes left of office time before I need to go give the kids a snack, so let's see how quickly I can post some updates!

*****************
Kenna has been doing GREAT sleeping at night. Typically I nurse her around 8:30 or 9 p.m. before her bedtime, and she has been sleeping until anywhere from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. WOOHOO! I think once in the last two weeks she has awakened at night with her pacifier stuck under her neck, and all the other nights she has slept great. This is indeed a HUGE answer to prayer! That plus a new pair of earplugs to drown out Ted's snoring has made for a much more rested Mommy!!

*****************
Some not-so-great news...the foreclosure sale of our house is September 24. This means we could very well be frantically packing a month from now. Our prayer is that we would be able to continue living in the house and making rent payments to whoever the purchaser is, whether it be the mortgage company or another investor. Please pray with us that this would be the case! This is a time of truly waiting on the Lord, as there is absolutely nothing else we can do but pray and wait to see what His answer will be. The Las Vegas market is absolutely horrible right now. The sale price of "our" house has dropped $250,000, and still there has only been one showing, which lasted all of 5 minutes.

*****************
One bad thing about Kenna sleeping longer and later is that getting up early is much more difficult for me! If Ted tries to shake me awake, I mumble incoherently and basically don't move. If Kenna starts fussing, I'm out of bed like a flash! This has made morning exercise time a hit-or-miss proposition. I won't give up my quiet time of Bible study and prayer, but giving up running 3-5 miles? Easy! Too easy, unfortunately. The week of August 19 I did get in 13 miles total, then dropped to 10 miles the week after. Currently I have racked up 10 miles this week with one more day on my chart. So, if I can get up and go more than 3 miles tomorrow morning, I will have gone farther than I have since the week of July 8!

We will certainly be praying about your house situation. What a potential stressor! I can't believe how much the market has fallen out there--much worse than here. I'm so glad you all didn't buy when you moved there!!

I loved the poems in the other post! Too cute!! The boys did a poetry unit at co-op last year--not their favorite, I must say, LOL.
