Today as we were eating lunch, we were talking about different things we enjoy. Soccer, baton, school, and then we got to talking about Eric playing indoor soccer (maybe, they play their games on Sunday, so it will depend on game times). We were talking about how Eden had seen Eric play when she was a baby and we lived in Paducah, KY. Somehow we ended up talking about places we lived. We talked about how Eden had been to Iowa (where my parents used to live) but only in my belly (when I was pregnant with her). Because Gramma and Grampa had moved to KY about a month after she was born. Then we talked about how Daddy had been there but none of the girls. Daddy told them that is where we were married. Then we talked about how nothing could be better than having 3 beautiful girls and one beautiful wife. They all agreed.
Then Eric said, "You know what is better than 3 beautiful girls and one beautiful wife? 3 beautiful girls and 2 beautiful wives!"
We all said "NO!"
Abigail then said, "You can't have 2 wives, you don't have 3 arms!"
(not sure why that makes a difference but it was really funny to us.)
Happy Halloween from the Bradley Family!
My Dad and brother
will be traveling back to the states from Kenya, East Africa the next couple of days. They should be home on Wednesday. Please keep them in your prayers.
Just a quick update to ask for prayers. Please keep my Dad and brother
in your prayers. They leave tomorrow (Monday, September 22) for Kenya, East Africa. They will be gone for a couple of weeks. Pray for their safety and the continued success of the gospel in this country.
Keep my Mom in your prayers, she will be traveling here later in the week so we can travel to Texas to see my sis
, my brother in law
and my niece!
Thanks! They are much appreciated!
Well, again a day of memories. Hard to believe how much my life and our world has changed since this day so few years ago. I still remember the thoughts, feelings and emotions from that day.
We are still here and ticking. Very busy household and we are loving the busyness. Eden is loving preschool. She is really starting to interact with the other kids in her class. We had a week of shyness I guess you would call it, but she is working herself out of it, more and more. She is reading everything she can see and get her hands on. I think it makes things a little harder on her preschool teacher, but we are still encouraging her love for reading.
Abigail is really blossoming with some one on one time with me. We mostly play games when Eden is in school, or work on our letters, sounds and writing them. She really feels like a big girl when she makes the letter on paper! "Look, I'm just like Eden now!" has been a well heard phrase here. We are all proud of her!
The girls are loving soccer. Eden is really good. She is a great manipulator of the ball. I think she could be one of the better players on the team, although, there is one little boy who is really good as well. Abigail has good ball control if she will focus. She is having more fun in the dirt right now. :) Their first game is Saturday. Very interested to see how this will go.
Isabel is about to be 1! Her birthday is Saturday, we are having a party and I think she will love having people here, she is a people person, and she will LOVE having a cake to destroy, I mean eat. :) She is walking, running, and the biggest thing is CLIMBING! and trying hard to talk. She can say the normal words and is really good at holding her finger up to let you know she's one. She has such a happy disposition. Always smiling and laughing. So glad we were blessed with her last year.
That's our family news. Hope you are all well!
Oh, go meet my niece, Maya
. She is beautiful!
