Tonight we celebrated the Feast of Shavuot or Pentecost. We had a dairy meal of Cheesy Lasagna to remind us of the promised land flowing with milk and honey. The idea was to let the kids stay up late. They made it to 10:30. Someday when they are older we will stay up all night. During dinner J retold the story of Moses and the ten commandments and the story of Pentecost.

So 3 years ago Liah was in the hospital for febrile seizures. It was one of those great medical moments where after three days of tests they came to the conclusion that I had come to three days prior and then said,"And that will be $20,000."!!! So here we are three years later and I'm still dealing with billing for it. Wait, let me clarify.....I'm dealing with billing in one office. The 9 others got it right back in 2006 and have moved on. As many know one hospital visit equals about 10 different bills since they all bill separately. Anesthesia, Neurology, ER, Gauze department,etc.. OK so gauze department might be a stretch........ but not a big stretch. So this one office(I'm not going to mention any names but it rhymes with Louth Hend Beurology.:) didn't file with the right insurance and by the time they came to that conclusion the insurance company said it was too late. Now of course nobody wants to take responsibility. The office claims that I can fight with the hospital since they are the ones who sent the wrong info.. The girl was very quiet when I told her I thought it was very odd that EVERYONE else was sent the right info. and they were the only ones out of the loop. I feel like I'm going to have an aneurysm and then I'll need an MRI myself!!!

So here is what tonight consisted of:
1. Cartwheels in the Living Room. I told J I was not feeling up to an ER visit if he pulled or broke anything.
2. Watching funny Youtube videos.
3. Have Dinner.
4. Laugh and cheer for H as she is finally crawling up on all fours....sometimes. Yeah H!!!
5. Family Mariocart competition. Hey it's raining so what else could we do??
6. Laughing at H as she decides to join L in her craft and draws a picture and understands how to use a glue stick. She is definitely advanced in some areas!!!
7. Then it's off to bed for the kiddo's.
Now we usually have Family Devotionals but tonight we weren't watching the clock and it got to be late. H has reached that age where instead of just being at family night she is now a part of it. She makes us laugh most of the time. She really is the most content child!!! I think this is a big reason she doesn't want to crawl or walk. She is very content in just sitting back and taking everything in. Although her curiosity is starting to take over and tonight she was all over the place. It was a great night in, without anything we had to do or any place we had to go.

The trip went well and we reached the meeting 15 minutes early. While J went to his meeting I planned on doing school in the car with the kids. J thought the meeting would be about an hour and a half and while I knew this was going to be a stretch for all three kids I thought we could swing it. The first hour went well and we were very productive. During the next hour things turned a little hairy as the kids were tired and their allergies were going crazy since we were surrounded by blooming dogwood trees. At one point H was crying, L was whining because she was bored, B was not wanting to do his math, and I was using every fiber of my being to stay patient. I prayed, or more like pleaded with the Lord to help everyone calm down. H and L both fell asleep and B finished his math now that all was quiet. After B finished he read some books and L joined him when she woke up. Things started going south again so I started reading a book to them and prayed that J would come out before I finished. He was knocking on the window by page 3. Once J was back in the car I looked at the clock and we had made it through a 3 HOUR meeting!!! I couldn't have done it without the Lord!!! Lately I've been learning to lean on the Lord in the smallest of smallest things. God's wisdom isn't just for those huge decisions but also for the little things. He will always give you wisdom in the place where you are. Even in a Honda Odyssey with 3 kids for 3 hours.
