My Girls

Today my big girl starts Kindy and I am looking forward to this it also means that Alyssa is becoming a big girl, she is growing up and its a bit scary really.
Georgia is 2 months old tomorrow that is also a big thing, where does all the time go my girls are getting so big.

This is what Warwick and I woke up to one morning. Alyssa had got out of bed and got into Georgia's room and climed in her cot to sleep with her.

Well this is the first year I haven't helped out doing safety at eastercamp. I felt it hard to be restrained and not join in, after so many years it become natural to be in safety mode whether you are on shift or not. I really enjoy doing safety, you miss most of the camp but you get to see things from the outside in and see how much God is working in this place. Last year I spent a lot of time with the intercessors praying with them and letting them know our issues or where the problems were coming from. From what Warwick said they really missed the interaction with the intercessors.

I went out to camp most days to get an update of how things were and so I didn't have to sit at home alone, it was to good to see a youth group enjoying its own company.

This was the first weekend that I have ever been left alone in a house without other adult company. I was very nervous about this as I don't like being alone but I coped very well and my girls didn't even notice me being a bit worried.

Alyssa had her first Easter egg hunt this weekend and she seemed to enjoy it even though all the kids were older than her and ignoring her. One of the girls there was extremely mean to Alyssa but when we got home that night and Alyssa was saying her prayers she said 'praise God for Danielle' this got me thinking where as most adults would hold a grudge Alyssa had forgotten and moved on and this is how we as Christians should be but a lot of the time aren't.

The internet connection on our home computer isn't working so I haven't been able to go on the net for a while, so I have stolen my husbands laptop to write this post, strange thing is I am using the same connection and its working, it just wont on our home computer.
Also I have noticed my side bar has disappeared, what's with that, am I going to have to enter the whole thing again.

Everything is starting to settle down, our financial situation is almost settled and everything else is just cruising.
Georgia is the most delightful baby, very happy and easy, she loves baths and her big sister and gives lots of smiles to Alyssa.
Alyssa loves her back and is very upset when Georgia is in bed and Lyssa can't cuddle her. Alyssa's jealousy has gone for the most part and home life is becoming easier.
Alyssa is starting Kindy next term and she is very excited and asks if I can take her almost everyday, I think that will be good for both me and her.
Warwick and I have also realised that we have let Alyssa away with far to much for far to long and now with a second child we have no control of her, she runs off at malls and in car parks or even across roads and she doesn't listen. Yesterday I decided to take all of her toys off her, yep every single toy (and she has alot) I think the worst part was she didn't care, but today she was an angel there was no T.V all day but 'Blue Clues' and she behaved until we went out. I just need to figure out how to make her listen and behave when we are out.
