Quiet Time

    It is an interesting week in our house.  Most of the normal home life continues.  Dance, Robotics, and letting the kids play outside….normal life.  After a few months being under so many guns it was nice to also have friends over and see a movie with them…and eleven kids had a pizza night!  Then there was the opportunity to just for a few minutes enjoy John Paul getting to settle down on my chest for a nap…after a few minutes of ear piercing complaining!

   Life is still crazy, but it needs living and sound of worship to abound for it to have meaning.

Once Upon a Dream

    When you give my girl music, a dress and a light saber you get a whole new version of the Saber Dance!  She takes after her big sister who as I type is spinning in the kitchen as she loads up her breakfast cereal.   All children at some point need to enter the real world, but for now I love keeping them safe to dream and play in a wholesome way.

Two Girls on a Date with Dad

Two Lovely Girls

Two Lovely Girls

    First day of Fall Break with a broken refrigerator!  Mom is out with the boys for a medical appointment, so Daddy gets his girls all to himself!  So Daddy takes the girls out to the place he can afford, and he knows Kellie will eat the Chicken Nuggets!  What else can you do afterwards than get the girls a present!  Yes I splurged again and got them each a prayer card for our school room collection!

    Sometimes the snapshot is what you need to take home as a good memory, and today my snapshot caught smiles on two roomates happy and lovely with their Dad.  Fourteen and three…and the two who have their Daddy wrapped around their finger.  It won’t win any awards, but it is the moment that clicked.

The Doctor is In!

    The Doctor was in last Saturday night.  She did house calls for everybody!  Luckily she confirmed we are all in pretty good shape headed into our Fall Break from school.  We are almost homebound since we still have three days of dance, two Robotics classes, doctor’s appointments, a dead refrigerator, and music!  Regardless of our staycation status, we should have time for plenty of moments like this one where we enjoy a few moments of family time…can get the house set for fall both inside and out!
