Nashville, Tennessee, February 10, 2012, 3:00 p.m., C.S.T.~

Terri Hershey writing.  Sorry it's been so long; life in itself has a way of prevenitng me from doing what I would like to do ... like, for example, do more writing in my journal.

With three kids to take care of (a nine-year-old, a two-year-old, and a newborn), well, I think you can see where this is going.  Thank God I have Randy in my life, but he works so I'm usually the one stuck at home with two of the children while the eldest spends part of the day with his homeschool buddies or at soccer practice..

David (the oldest) is doing fantastic.  He has already sung several solos at church and there's been talk of talent angents on the local level looking for a possible record contract for him.  They say David has "star quality" and has the voice of an angel.  He didn't make it to AGT last year, but he may try out later this month if soccer practice doesn't coincide with his plans.  He absolutely loves soccer, almost as much as singing!

Our two-year-old, Danielle Grace, is recovering from walking pneumonia.  She was in the hospital for about five days and is currently on oxygen (doctor's orders) and is on a regimen of antibiotics and breathing treatments.  It scared us when she got such a high fever and started having trouble breathing!  When we took her last Sunday, the doctor at the ER popped her into the hospital, where she got IV antibiotics and was closely monitored (and lovingly cared for) by the nurses.  They took excellent care of her.

Danielle got out of the hospital yesterday and is already getting spoiled.  

David has been jealous because he wishes the attention was on him instead!

Lastly, we have Nathaniel Luca, who was born on Christmas Day.  He is a little over a month old; he will be two months old later this month.  He is a very good baby: hardly ever cries unless hungry or wet (or poopy), sleeps through the night, and looking just like his big brother in miniature.  Looking at baby Nathaniel is almsot like looking at David all over again when he was an infant; it's rather spooky!

Randy (husband) is working all the time: he works as an auto mechanic and makes excellent money, so we aren't really hard up for anything (although the gas prices have gotten ridiculously high, which, in turn, drives everything else up!).  It is only by God' grace that we've been able to meet the bills and pay them on time.

As for myself, I'm the typical stay-at-home mamma.  Three adorable kids to care for and love.  I also teach them at home: David is homeschooled and no doubt, Danielle will be when she gets to be four years old (only two more years!).  And I am sure that Nathan will join them when he gets to be four years of age!

The last time I had written, we were staying at my sister's house after our own home got flooded out after the rains we had here in Nashville that flooded a good part of the city, but we have since moved back and our house is looking better than ever!  For a while it didn't feel like home (due to all the new furniture, carpeting, etc.), but now it feels like an old shoe.  We are comfortable and happy once again.

Well, Nathaniel is screaming; I'd best see what he wants, so I will go.  I also have to pick David up from soccer practice.  I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Terri Hershey saying so long!  May God bless you as much as He's been blessing our little family!

~Love, your friend in Tennessee, Terri.  :)
