Daddy, Dirt & "Moos"

Matt and the girls had a blast playing on the dirt pile in our back yard. He was teaching them how to "squish" dirt clods and to throw rocks.

Such good students!

Then Abby & Bree took turns running down the hill and having daddy catch them just before they fell. He would swing them high in the air and they would scream in delight.

Then it was off to see the "moos" accross the street. There are two calves that the girls are dying to get their hands on but mean ol' daddy won't let them in the fence.

Just Stuff

I know, I know, it's been a long time since my last post. I'm just starting to feel better so this week will be catch-up week for the Bergamini's. The only one who isn't quite better is Matt and I am praying that he will go see a doctor this week. He is so stubborn, geesh! I did get to scrapbook with some of the "scrap chicks" at Susie's house on Saturday. That probably did more for me than anything else! Boy did I need a break! Well, anyway, here are a couple pictures of the girls helping daddy a few weekends ago when we planted trees. Have a great week everybody!
Boy it sure is hard work diggin' holes for daddy... where is he anyway?
God made dirt and dirt don't hurt!

Survivor Mommy

Hey everybody. Today was a much better day than yesterday. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection. I was given some antibiotics so I should be feeling better real soon. I saw a similar page in one of my scrapbook idea books and thought it was appropriate since I had "one of those days" yesterday AND I LOVE Survivor. I hope you get a kick out of it anyway.

Did I sign up for THIS?!?!?

Sorry for the lack of "photo posts" lately. This has been a very difficult week for all of us. We have been sick with chest colds/allergies ( no one really seems to know) since Monday. I have no voice, which the children LOVE, my throat is killing me and I'm exhausted. Today started out with the girls emptying the entire contents of their dresser (which I had neatly organized and refolded for the 100th time last night). I had to make several stops in town today but half way through my errand marathon the girls began wailing for snacks. Oh no, I forgot the diaper bag at home! It's a snackastrophy! Dear Lord, please don't let anyone poo! They also made it a goal to rearrange the house by moving all of their toys out of their bedroom and into the living room. All of this happened while I was trying to make a healthy home cooked meal. Abby just emptied an entire box of Kleenex onto the couch after being placed in timeout for playing with the remote control, and Bree has been crying inconsolably since dinner. I totally lost my temper, yelled at the girls, which just made things worse so I have officially placed myself in a time out for the sake of the family. On top of all that Matt just called to let me know his has to work late. Geesh! I feel like the poor people in the KIA commercial that can't seem to remember what side of the car their gas tank is on but they keep trying anyway. Satan is definetly trying to get me to give up. So this is what I will do, and with hope and a prayer, I will keep trying and maybe, just maybe I will get it right by bedtime. Ok- deep breath- time for the girls to get in the bath! Have a great weekend everybody! Thank goodness tomorrow will be a brand new day...

Morning muse

What is the most memorable activity you did with your family as a child?
My answer: We would go camping at White Horse Lake. We didn't go very often so it was a special treat for all of us to go camping together. Another reason it was special was because my parents seemed to chill a bit and my brother and I got to fish from sun up to sun down if we wanted. Mom would always make blueberry pancakes over the campfire too, so yummy!

Now it is your turn. Leave your answer in the Comments Section below.

Don’t you just love a good book?

If I could, I would park myself on a comfy chair and read a book, start to finish, in one sitting. Well that is what I do almost every Monday and Tuesday night after the girls are in bed. You see, this year our church is reading a book of the Bible a week and then Pastor Lee preaches on that book on Sunday. We are given a reading outline to follow throughout the week but I can’t seem to stop until I have finished the entire book. The Old Testament is so fascinating that I just can’t get enough of it!
This week we are in the book of Esther. It is one of my favorite books because it is so much like the Christian novels that I love to devour. Drama, power, romance, intrigue-this is the stuff of which best-selling noves are made right? But Esther is a true story! I admire Ether’s character and her courage but I can also relate to her life (well sort-of).
God has a purpose for the situations in which He places us. He has placed each of us in our present situation to serve Him. That is exactly why God placed adoption on our hearts… to serve Him. God was working behind the scenes throughout our entire journey. Like Esther it involved risking our security but it also taught us a great lesson. We had to be willing to let God be our ultimate security. Serving God often demands that we risk our own security to serve others with care and concern. Are you willing to let God be your ultimate security? Trust Him, He will bless you beyond measure.
I would like to encourage you to read or re-read the book of Esther. Maybe even enjoy a great movie this week called One Night With the King. I loved what Steven Isaac said in his review for Plugged In Online. ‘“For such a time as this," Mordecai tells Esther. And in both small and big ways, the same applies to those today who love God and are called according to His purpose. That's powerful, encouraging, spiritually beautiful stuff. And it's great to see it on the big screen.’

Abby & Bree love to make us smile. I bought each of the girls a pair of goggles for the bathtub because they hate getting water in their eyes when I wash their hair. We decided to try them on the girls so the could get used to wearing them. They thought the goggles were pretty fun and mommy and daddy got some good belly laughs. They are such a joy!
