Brand New Eyes

So it has become very clear that the last few months in the Robinson household have been a huge 180. Alot has gone on and I couldn't find the time to sit and gather my thoughts. Which maybe should have happened.
Either way, here I am now, still in one piece and still very hopeful for our future :) Still believing God would never give me more than I can handle.
I'll give you a little insight to a couple events. About 4 months ago we became pregnant, we were overjoyed and it was very planned, super planned if you will. Sad to say, during my 5th week, we lost the baby. Although this was a tough thing for anyone to go through, God really helped us all handle it quite well. We go to a rather large church and announcing our pregnancy was something that I didn't think would cause as much hurt as it did. Although we told most of our close friends and family, I'm still getting people asking how me and the baby are doing. I've kinda always used humor to deal with things and it seems to be a good choice, it helps those who ask deal with their discomfort about the news as well.
Well, after all was said and done, we are trying again. Even though I have to fight those feelings of worry, I don't want to give up. God's timing is perfect and I will accept his fate. So please keep us in your prayers.
Now, the other huge matter, was my amazing 4 year old son who for some odd reason, just so happens to be a pro at falling just right. As we were at the park for his soccer pictures for his first season of being on an actual team (We were sooooo excited about this and so was he). We decided to play at the park till it was his turn, well about 20 minutes into playing and about 10 times back and forth on the monkey bars as he was swinging he fell, I immediately knew what happened when I saw his face. It was the same face he made when he was 2 and he fractured his leg in a bouncy house (I tell you, just right) My life was turned upside down in an instant. He broke his tiny little arm. We called 911 and the fire fighters were first on the scene. They were so sweet and gave Cody (who was no crying mind you, crazy strong kid) a little red stuffed dog and were so gentle and calm with him. It made the rest of the ordeal so much easier. Well...most of it. When we got to the hospital there was talk of pins and screws and surgery and I almost fainted. I was praying harder than ever, and Thank God for putting that Doctor there that day, he disagreed and was confident he could readjust it just fine. After a terrible choice to stay in the room, 3 grown men (after Cody was put to sleep) pulled on my sons arm and body for a whole 30 minutes, I've never wanted to scream and vomit so much in my life. It was the hardest thing to watch. Especially since Cody was out but still moaning. Horrible.
Well, through it all, I knew it wasn't the end of the world just unfortunate circumstances and we made it through. Cody's arm is 100% (Although I'm paranoid about things still so I ask him to not get crazy) and we are optimistic about having a second child. If it's meant to be, it will happen.
So yeah...that's been the last few months events along with a million things in the middle that I don't care to mention, but now we are back to our lovely routine and somewhat normalises. Cody is happily homeschooling again, and boy did he retain a ton from last year! We are now on a normal schedule at church and new teams. Buddy and I have now had time to workout everyday and it feels amazing. It's very nice. I'm very grateful.
I will be blogging every Friday with Cody's school stuff/Life stuff so yay. Now for resent pictures! Woooo, the stuff you really want to see, right! hahah

I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage! It's a terrible thing to go through. I had one about 13 years ago. It really hurts.

I'm glad your son is doing better! He's a beautiful boy.

I am returning the visit and the following;)

It's crazy and sad how many women go through miscarriages! I went through one between my #3 and #4 children, but I kept it quiet and it was still painful! So I'm thankful that you had a community around you to grieve with! It's a reminder of what a gift our children truly are.

Also glad your son is ok! We haven't had any broken bones, but plenty of "freak" accidents that have resulted in stitches, blood and big bruises... I don't handle those things well... my calling is definitely NOT in the medical field although I try to handle our "emergencies" well.. try!

Thankful for your positive thoughts on the Letter of the Week curriculum. I"m hoping to use it with my youngest in a couple of years:)

I'm so sorry for the difficulties you've been through.
Thank you so much for your trust and faith in God through it though.
I feel sad for people who don't have Him to lean on.
