What's been going on?

 Mark's home business has now gone full time.  Mark supports architects, builders and developers with their need for architectural drawings and designs.   
 Our nursery became my sewing room and when Mark decided to start working from home full time and left the company he was with, my sewing room became his office.  I'm so excited for him and very proud of the bold step he took to do this.  Our faith is in the Lord and know if we commit this to Him, He will see our plans through.

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16:3

This is a family business.  The other day Mark had Lulu and I working!  We were stuffing envelopes and putting stamps on them.  We have been sending out letters and business cards to business in the area.  I asked Lulu how much she charged per hour, she told us $60.  Ha!
Look how hard she worked! 
 Then some other exciting news.
Levi is working on potty training! He got a sticker right before bed tonight! 
Way to go Levi!
And Ila May is now wearing cloth diapers!  I started Lulu on cloth diapers when she was born.  Then we went on a trip and I learned how lovely disposable diapers were and out went the cloth diapers. Something about just tossing the dirty diaper and being done with it is really appealing.  Well, Mark and I feel that God has really been placing it on our hearts to glorify Him in every way.  That includes our money.  For us this was one cost I could help with. I still love disposables but boy are they expensive!  Plus I have been praying about my utter dislike for laundry.  Really I have been asking God to help me with laundry.  That's one chore I just have not enjoyed.  But now I have to do it or Ila will be out of diapers!  Knowing they are for her and knowing how I am helping Mark by cutting costs, it makes it a bit more enjoyable. 
Plus, who doesn't just love the big diaper butt look on babies?
Does this diaper make my butt look big?

Your new family business is going to be fun to watch grow. With everyone helping and having a part in the business, well that is just so wonderful. God knows, God cares and God will provide. How exciting!

Kimmy - have you ever thought about gdiapers {washable outside with a place for cloth inserts)?
