She's been such a pleasure to watch grow and learn. I'm loving learning more about her!

Ruth likes to crawl under the table. Sometimes when we aren't sitting at our she gets stuck and cries for someone to come move a chair for her to get out. She will crawl over the chair rungs now sometimes too. When were there sitting it's like she is a dog begging for food!
The weekend before school started this year we spent in Columbus hanging out with some friends. Our adventures started at the Zoo. The Columbus Zoo is awesome. It's now our favorite over Cleveland and Akron!
We were there from 10-5 and didn't see all the Zoo! We did see some pirates though!
That frees up the cloth diapers for our little Ruthie!
I've been keeping it in my purse with a pen handing and writing when things move me or I have something I want to remember. And when I say something I want to remember, I don't mean my grocery list. I mean real life changing, God spoken messages I need to remember and reflect on.
I don't write in it regularly, but when I find something I like or want to reflect on, I jot it down, sometimes it's a sentance, sometimes a paragraph and even a page or two! It's been useful for me, and something I hope draws me closer to God.
I started reading it not too long ago; it was an easy read and the first few chapters I noticed Lisa-Jo Baker talks a lot about her home in South Africa, you got the idea she misses. I kept reading, but I also though as I read that I wasn't really getting much from it personally for me, but that I was reading her story.
I've been reading a lot lately and trying to choose things that make me think deeper and challenge the ways I think or live. I didn't feel like I was doing that the first few chapers here, but I still think there is value in reading other people's stories. People need to share their stories and their lives, and I was happy to read hers and others storires. It's a collection of people that you a connected to once you've shared stories.
However, as I continued reading, I realized this book was impacting me and challenging me and identifiying with me, and I didn't even realize it! It was making me think about my life without me even realizing how profoud some of her stories were. The book felt like a warm hug in the world of motherhood.
