WOO HOO! Congratulations to my niece and her husband on the birth of their first little one -- Cristiano! He was a natural birth; 6 lbs 8 oz and 19" long. Strange thing -- his 18 year old cousin, Christian, was a natural birth, 6 lbs 8 oz and 19" long. Coincidence? I doubt it!...I hope that Cristiano brings you as much joy, adventure and love as our Christian has -- Ours certainly keeps life interesting. Now, that's doing the family thing RIGHT!
AWESOME advice from Faith & Family Live! writers Tom and Caroline McDonald on the pitfalls of overscheduling the family. In their piece, Family Calendar Overload, they suggest a realistic schedule that allows for plenty of free time for imaginations and independence to grow and plenty of family time to enjoy each other over a meal or a game.
HIP HIP HOORAH to my husband who has agreed that we need both a new dishwasher and a new washing machine. Now, that is certainly deserving of a Sunday Salvo Salute -- especially from ME!
