Carson was at the house for about 45 minutes....too hot and the fumes were too strong so he spent most of the days at Bebe and Poppa's house.

Carson had to get his picture made with his daddy for his birthday. He stayed with my parents while we cleaned and went to eat. He is in his pj's because he wasn't feeling to great yesterday and we didn't leave for dinner until 7pm! (He was in bed for the night by 7:45 :)
Larry so proud of his fire! (He had one going in the back too :)
Sheetrock complete 5/15/10. Next they apply the mud and sand it down. Then we will start a primer coat of paint by the end of next week! It is amazing how much different it is with the walls! This is a view from the front door.

Today I got beautiful tulips, a funny/cute card from my son, a sweet card from my man, extra time with Carson (my week to work nursery at church :) and time with family.
It has been fun to look back over prayer journal entries I made when I was pregnant and now see how Jesus has answered so many of my prayers! I know every mom must feel this way, but I truly feel with all my heart that Carson is the sweetest, most precious baby boy in the whole world. I'm filled with gratitude to the Father for allowing me the privilege of being Carson's mother! I pray that I will be the best mother for him that I need to be- to love him as his Creator has loved him, to teach him so he can grow in like Jesus "in wisdom, in stature and in favor with God and man," to protect him as our Refuge protects us, and to guide him in gentleness as our Shephard guides His beloved sheep. At times I get so intimidated by the task before me...the sheer responsibility of it all. I'm not talking about the late night, diapers, etc. I'm referring to the gift of molding and guiding this precious person toward all the best that God has for his life! Something I must continually seek Him and trust Him for!

This Saturday, our Sunday School class went canoeing. We had a great time! It was a beautiful day- started out a little cool but of course I still ended up sun burned. The water was a low, so Larry ended up having to get us "unstuck" several times. This was a fun little outing and I'm hopeful we'll do it again sometime!
