Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

Julieann's words heard throughout the school room today were, "Mom, there's a dead, black apple under the couch!" Evidently, one of the little girls lost an apple under the couch, and according to Julieann, "It died"...

I believe we've been making too much soap lately for our fall/winter craft shows. Rosie and Autumn Faith wanted to know if we could eat what was in the pot or was it MORE soap...As a matter of fact it was mashed potatoes for our Shepherd's Pie recipe. They were happy!

You know your child lives in the country when she asks, "Mommy, how many ACRES tall am I ?"

 

And Nathaniel's cute comment of the day after cleaning my bathroom floor was, "Mom, I forgot the floor was wet and I accidentally SMEARED a SMUDGE."

One plastic BB pellet + one little girl's nostril = a trip to the ER for removal. After much probing, saline flushing, and discomfort, poor Anna Rose was relieved when the BB was dislodged from her nostril.

 

The ER doctor rewarded her with a popsicle!

“Leave all the afternoon for exercise

 

and recreation,

 

which are as necessary as reading.

 

I will rather say

 

more necessary

 

because health

 

is worth more than learning.” —Thomas Jefferson

and holding hands while exploring God’s world, are all precious memories to a mother.

The Greens at Kenny’s family reunion.

 

Today everyone welcomed the sun for a fun day of swimming.

 

And this little girl was delighted to spend time in the “big kids” pool.

 

All tuckered out from swimming and art class.
