I went on my first Volksmarch today in Rodenbach. Brian has been taking the oldest four on them without me and the babies. This one was close and the weather is finally getting more tolerable so I braved it. On the way there Judah threw up all over himself. I am pretty sure it was the dairy we were trying out on him that morning. He had a German donut with a chocolate glaze. I knew the chocolate glaze probably had some dairy that wasn't "baked in" enough for him, but I thought we'd try it just to see what happened. Now we know.
We decided to put him in the stroller just in case he threw up again. He was a prefect little angel in his stroller and so very quiet. He usually is a chatty one, but not in the stroller.
My husband and I were sitting in church before Mass shortly after we were confirmed into the Catholic Church. Both of our gazes drifted to a pew close by where a family filled up the whole pew. Granted it was one of the shorter pews, not a full length one. I can't remember who said it to whom, but one of us said, "I hope we fill up a pew with our family one day." We agreed it would be wonderful. And so that is what we're hoping for...a pew all our own.
People think they have to find their soulmate to have a good marriage. You get married, and after 20 years of loving, bearing and raising children, meeting challenges- then you'll have "created" your soulmate. -Diane Sollee
