7 Quick Takes.


This weekend, the girls and I are off to Whyalla for a girls weekend away. We will go shopping, eat out for tea and have some girl bonding time. 


Today was Tom and Amelia's sports day at school. I took Christopher and Joseph over there just before 12.00. We had a great time watching them all compete. Their team came in fourth but they had lots of fun. 


Joseph's physiotherapy is going really well. We can see a great improvement in his walking and control. This week, we are going to be working on strengthening his stomach muscles. 


We have had lots of summer weather here this week. I cannot wait for it to be warm every day. I really love summer. 


I haven't sewn very  much at all since Joseph was born. Now that Tom and Amelia are back at school, I should have more time to do some. I have quite a few plans for some summer dresses for myself and some summer outfits for the younger children. For some reason, my older children would rather buy their clothes. 


It is now 8 days till the feast day of St. Therese. I was told about a novena prayer that was starting yesterday so have started it. If you want to join in the novena you can find it here. 


Today I went over to the church on my own for a prayer hour. I have told Steve that I want to try and get over there once a week for one hour. It was great to be alone with Our Lord and not have any distractions or any one talking to me. I thought the time might drag but it went by very fast. I am looking forward to doing this each week. 

Don't forget to drop over to Jennifer's blog for other people's quick takes.

That is great about the prayer hour. We have adoration in a bunch of churches around here, and I NEVER make the time to go. You have inspired me!!

why is joseph in physio? my son is in it because he was a preemie and has some developmental delays.

Therese said...

Hi Jen,

Joseph is having physio to strengthen his left side. He had a stroke at some stage, (probably in the womb) which has caused this weakness.

I'm glad to hear that Joseph is doing much better.

Christie said...

I hadn't realized the little guy had had a stroke. We'll add his physio therapy to our prayers for success in therapy for Simon. So glad you got some time with God today. What a blessing!

Gosh, Therese, I should visit a little more often. I had no idea Joseph was having difficulty.
I am trying to be a little more active in my blogging. I really enjoy it when I do. I will remember Joseph in my prayers also.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
