It's loose!

Taylor came to me while eating supper tonight and said "My tooth is loose..." He's been thinking this of almost every tooth in his mouth for months now so I didn't belive him...

Behold, it is true! That tooth is _really_ loose. I have no idea what you're suposed to see here, to me all his teeth look fine, but he needed a picture and even took it himself! :)

Update on Taylor

Well our little 5 yr old is sure a smarty pants.
He is starting early acting as a Shelvey, and a Stahls! LOL

He has done really well working on tying his shoes. If we tell him he has to do it himself, he gets it done in no time.

Today we cut his hair, here are the before, and after pics!

Prayer request

I have a prayer request for all of my blogger friends.
My step-dad has had a few TIA's (aka mini strokes), in the past while. My mom and sister are finding it difficult to deal with. They are slowly finding things that are different about him. He has some paralysis, has trouble remembering things, and a few other things that are common with TIA's. I am asking for prayers for Pete, my mom Carolyn, my youngest sister Aly, and my Nanny, as they deal with the issues the keep arising.
There are many issues that have come about. Being in such a hick town, things are even harder. It is hard to find support. My mother has recently reached out to all of us for help.

I know that we can do all things thru him who strengthens us. Pete is a very determined man, and I feel that he will do everything in his will to get back to “normal”.
I am finding it very difficult right now, knowing that I am so far away, and feeling very helpless.
Please keep Pete, Carolyn, Aly, and Nanny in your prayers.

Thanks so much.
As I lean on the Lord, I know that he will lead me, and guide me on my way.

another day, another box

Well, we have been slowly packing everything we can. We have taken things off the walls, and packed them, taken our extra bedding, and towels, and packed them away. We have been trying to down size, but, we aer not so good at that.... Oh well, it will get done in the next 23 days... Since it has to be!

There are a few things that we are still working on. We have been trying to figure out what we are going to do to move our belongings to the new house. I am sure that we will figure it out. Right now we have been really looking at the cost of all the things involved. I think that once we get there, things will all fall into place. I am worried about the next 23 days. It seems like such a short time, but, I know it is enough time to get things done.

Welll, thanks for reading!

busy long weekend

Well we spent the day in St. Jacobs, working for friends of ours at the farmers market. Popping, bagging, selling Kettle corn (sorry Aly, didn't save you any). This was our first time this year, and we were sure kept on our feet. Taylor enjoyed the science lessions he was getting from Jotham (sorry if I spelled that wrong). You should have heard the two of them yapping away about water, and evaperation, and melting, and... on and on...
We all had such a great time. Sorry I left the camera in the car, but I am sure you can all imagine all the corn we saw... the poor kettle didn't stop for at least 1 1/2 hours... then only stopped for the guys to have a pee break... then back to it right up until the end!
Thank you Dave for asking us to go, we sure enjoyed it. Working with Jotham is always fun!
Have a great long weekend everyone!

a few more pics

Well I thought I would post a few more pictures
of the house. I love the yard. I can't wait to get into the house.
We are going to love it, and make it our own. I can't wait to have company fill the house with fun and laughter. Friends and family to visit, meeting new friends, and getting together with old ones. This will be so much fun! Only 30 more days to go!!

Well packing sucks! But I guess with looking at things that way, I will never get things done. We are getting excited about moving, and really trying to get things done. Taylor feels that he shouldn't pack his room as he wants to keep all his toys out to play with.

visit friends

Taylor was very excited to hear an unexpected voice on the other end of the phone yesterday.
"Uncle Pat!!" in a screaming voice Taylor shouted, as he realized who was on the phone.
Uncle Pat was in Burlington for a Police Conference for the weekend. We traveled down to visit him, since Tic didn't get to see much of him while we were in Kenora in April.
Here is a picture that Taylor took of Uncle Pat, and one of the two of them together. Taylor sure misses seeing Pat all the time.

Ok, I added one Silly one of Pat also!

Out in the park

Taylor and me went to the park today with his bike and our video camera. I shot about 5 minutes of video of him riding all by himself! (be it down a hill)

I'm sorry for those who hav a thing against Windows Media Player but all I have installed right now is Windows Movie Maker. Here's a link for everyone, it's ~4Mb and on my server at work (768kbps up)

Taylor riding his bike

ok, so the other day Taylor got up before Jason and I (this really isn't to unusual). He was playing around, and knocked down the calender. When Jason and I got up, we had the pleasure of finding this cute little note sitting on the calender.

Translation I'm sorry that this happened Taylor

at the park

Well we tried our hardest to get Taylor to ride his bike without his training wheels, but really didn't get that far. I guess in time this will work out. Here are some pictures of him and Jason trying to ride.
