A Couple Funnies from the Boys

Keenan has been mixing up many words lately.  I love it as they expand their vocabulary.

Here is a fun one… stupid and dumb are opposite… I mean RELATIVE!


AND some good news for us… a conversation overheard…

Keenan: I know you did.  I can see what you are thinking.

Thaddeus:  You can not!!  only parents can read my mind.


There are so many  more… but they happen through the day, and by the time I sit down, I can’t remember them anymore.  even long enough to tell Bryan when he gets home.

Time Management: Psalm 145

“Everyday I will bless You”

  • Every. day. In the little things. In the big things. Not just when I have had enough sleep.  Not just when my children listen to me.

“One generation will praise Your name to another and will declare Your mighty acts”

  • I, the mama, will praise Your name to my children, and I will tell them of the work You are doing in my heart, and in the tribal works we receive updates from, and in the testimonies we hear at church, and EAGERLY tell of God’s hand in my life in my past, and of Your fascinating character, and the riches of Your grace…
  • I will spend time meditating and exuberantly singing of Your glorious splendor, and Your beauty, and Your marvelous works, and the memories of Your direction and Your mercy in my life, and Your holiness, and Your kingdom here and Your coming…

A Day with Just the Girls

Absolutely at a loss… NO IDEA what to do with myself.

Bryan took the boys camping (they could not be swayed to tent in the living room even though it POURED rain the night before and it was windy, cloudy and forecasting rain).

And there I was with the two little girls…

Next time, I think I’ll plan some stuff and have some things in mind to do with Shand.

I’m sure it would have helped had Talia not had tummy aches all day.  I wonder if it was the brownies… I might need to cut out chocolate.  Sad.  But I will.

Pics coming.

lessons from kids camp

if i just let the boys wear the same clothes all week, and skipped showers, it would not only save on the water / electricity / gas bill, but my time in doing laundry and cleaning the showers.

he actually looked very healthy and handsome in his stinky grime!
