Day 261 - Prayers, Library Run, Visits and $325

Please keep baby H in your prayers. She is our friend's precious 10 week old baby girl. H's mom found a growth (tumor) on the side of her eye. Their family doctor looked at it today and they are going to see a specialist tomorrow. PLEASE PRAY for good news and comfort for the family. I believe in miracles.

After MDO today (I feel like I start a lot of posts that way!), we stopped by the library for some more books. We HEART books. Hillary Ashton picked out a couple more Junie B. Jones books and a book about apples. I picked out Charlotte's Web to read to all of the kids. We read the first chapter tonight and they LOVED it. What's not to like about a pet pig you feed with a baby bottle? Haha!

Sophie Le picked out a book called, Ned's New Home . It's a really cute story about a worm named Ned looking for a new home...haha! Bet you would have never guessed that plot :o)
