"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know, and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

The Adventures of The Toomey Boys
Sledding day at the local ski hill!
Bowen had a great time... he loved racing down the hill & being pulled back up!
Relaxing by the campfire.
Brooks & Bowen heading up the hill. They were having such a good time!
Daddy & Heath doing the hard work.
Brooksie loved lunch & hot chocolate at the lodge!
Mama & her boys...
I just love my boys so much!
Celebrating Serbian Christmas
Heath heading out for his first night of basketball.
Our gym holds a parents night out. Heath usually goes alone but for the first time, Brooks got to go too. They were both so excited that they got to go together. So sweet & cute!
We adopted a new dog from the Humane Society right after Christmas. She is a toy poodle mix and is such a wonderfully sweet dog! She is Heath's dog but really she is our family dog just like the others! She is so great with the boys. She is so patient and loving and lets them play all sorts of games with her. When they get home from school she runs and jumps on them. Such a wonderful addition to our family!
We were working on our house to get it ready to put on the market so that is the reason for the clutter in the background but who notices clutter when this cute boy is standing there in his helper legs!!!
Working hard at PT! This day, a woman (I forgot to ask if I could share her name) who is a bilateral amputee came to Advanced Prosthetics just to meet Bowen and encourage him! What a blessing that was, especially for me. It was so great seeing a double leg amputee getting around so well! She does 45 minutes on the treadmill every day! If you did not know she had prosthetics, you would never be able to tell just by seeing her out and about. I have met a lot of single amputees who are missing just one of their lower limbs but to meet someone in person who is successfully getting around while being a double amputee... that was a first and I am so grateful she had the heart to come and meet us!
Working hard walking around.
Advanced Prosthetics has a turtle named Ivana Walk (cute) and Brooks' new job is feeding the turtle each time we are there for Bowen's appointments. He loves this job and takes it very seriously! He just loves that little turtle.
I am a blessed mother of three sons who is married to a wonderful man that adores his children. Currently, I am a stay-at-home mom and I feel so fortunate that I am able to spend these next few years at home with my sons. They bring so much joy and love into my life every day and I couldn't be happier! We also have two wonderful dogs who give us an enormous amount of unconditional love and one who constantly keeps us on our toes. I am grateful every day for my life, my family and the journey we our on.
