Our first rollerblading adventure of this year!!! The kids had a blast, but it just reminded me of how old I am!!!
I have been a bit emotional. I am trying to be thankful. I am trying to let go…stop looking at the waves and trust Jesus, but often find myself sinking.
A few weeks ago, we took Gideon to see a Neurologist. We thought we would get further insight into how he thinks and processes life. I wanted to further understand Gideon to better help him achieve his potential. Even though the doctor was very encouraging and confident in a plan that would help Gideon…he discovered additional difficulties and concerns. They are really not a huge deal and really not even something that we need to be concerned about today…but of course I am!!!
Emme pierced got her ear’s pierced last summer. She quickly learned to care for her ears and loved changing her earrings. This week, we noticed that her earrings seemed to be very low. Some how her holes stretched and on one side has pulled all the way through!!! This also is not a huge, life threatening issue…but makes me feel horrible!!! How could I have not noticed it before it ripped through?!?! She will now either have to have plastic surgery to repair the tear or live with a ripped earlobe.
I know the these issues are so minor in life. I know that God has a prefect plan in the life of my kids. I know that he works everything out for his glory.
As a mom, I want to protect my kids from pain, hurt and struggles…even if they are for their good!!! Please pray that I would look to Jesus and not the waves!!!
Emme is still super sick. She has no energy, has barely eaten only to lose it an hour later and has barely been a awake long enough only to watch a few minutes of Cartoon Network in the Hotel!
Our Baltic Blast has not been much of a blast for Emme or me, but the rest of the gang has loved Vilnius!!! They explored the Castle, KGB Museum and the darling Old Town!!! I am thankful it is so close so we can get a vacation do-over some day!!!
Tonight, we say good-bye to Lithuania and our Baltic adventures and tomorrow morning we will be home!!!
Last night, Emme threw-up all night! I pray she will quickly improve and be able to enjoy the rest of our adventures!!!
This morning we said good-bye to Latvia and took a train back to Riga.
From the Train Station to the Bus Station, we got a quick glimpse at the Riga Market.
And arrived in Vilnius a few hours later!!!
I am so thankful for such a fabulously located hotel with amazing views…since I only left the Hotel to get food!!!
Emme has slept every chance she has had and continues to throw-up. I have gone to pharmacies in Latvia and now Lithuania. I hope it is a bug that quickly takes up residency some where else!!! I have never seen Emme so sick. She sleeps all the time, wakes up only to throw-up and is not talking, arguing or even whining!!!
