Links and Poems and Pictures

Ok so this whole computer-ruined-by-milk-spill thing is really messing with my mojo on the blog. Not that I necessarily had any bloggy-mojo to start with. And since I cant even seem to get my camera to want to put its pictures onto this slightly-bootlegged-old computer (not that I blame her, poor camera), here's a few shots from instagram this week.

First of all, you guys obviously know my sweet little heart hero (Caden). I wanted to remind everyone that this week was CHD (congenital heart defect) awareness week. 1 in 100 kids are affected by congenital heart defects, and we are hoping and praying for continued research, support, and prayers for each and every one of these kiddos!  Also, Caden goes back to the cardiologist this week, and even though I feel like they're for sure going to say that everything looks great (because, hello, this little wild-man is not lacking energy in the least), I cant help but feel a little nervous every time we have to go. So your prayers are much appreciated this week, for heart defects everywhere - and specifically for this little munchkin and his heart-appointment this week.
In other news, our Anteater basketball season is in full swing. If you're interested in buying a bright green t-shirt ($10) or hoodie sweatshirt ($20), please email me Becca1612 at hotmail dot com.
In still more random news, this little girl is the most adorable art and gift-lover ever. She has the most beautiful thoughtful heart you guys, and yesterday she came out of her "playtime" (which is like naptime but without the sleeping and also without any restfulness for momma), with a canvas that she had glued crayons perfectly across so that she could recreate some art they made at school. Adorbs.  
Finally, Jayci has been requesting lots of family dates, and "girl time" lately. I recognize that the life we lead might make our kids feel like they have to share mommy and daddy with lots of neighborhood kiddos, so I'm trying to do a better job with being intentional spending concentrated time with my children. This weekend, that meant mani-pedis and a Target date with Jayci.

Finaly, I'll leave you with a few links I loved this week (if you're only going to read one, make it the one from Russell Brand. Who knew?).
Russell Brand: My life without drugs "I look to drugs and booze to fill up a hole in me; unchecked, the call of the wild is too strong" . . .
What your church can do to care for the poor
More Love, Less Hustle
Words for the mothers who make
The best gift an adoptive mom can give


Oh and this poem too:
The small woman
Builds cages for everyone
She
Knows.
While the sage,
Who has to duck her head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners
- Hafiz
