Family is the most important thing you will have in this world, a special gift from God... cherish them... and invest in your relationships by spending time with them. It doesn't have to be anything fancy... even the simplest things will be more than enough.
Jonny and I made this poster together. I drew it, and he colored it.
He liked it so much, and was very proud that he wanted to take it to school the next day for show and tell.
Yesterday the kids did a talent show and we all watched it... and videotaped it. I want to turn it into a video... maybe I'll find some time this weekend. See, time together can be this simple.
... with a few accent colors. :)
I reminded her that practice makes perfect... and they still tasted good.
It worked perfect and it was nice looking out into the kitchen rather than with my back turned.
Rachel has finals next week so she has been studying hard.
Annalyn gave coupons for doing hair, foot massages, etc. I think Julia cashed in one of them. Julia finished this blanket that was made using up all of the leftover balls of yarn we have. Our neighbor is expecting their first baby so Julia gave it to her as an early baby gift.
Today I went to Costco with four of the girls. We bought our first box of 15 dozen eggs, 50 pound sack of flour, and one pound of yeast!
I also picked up a bunch of pictures so the girls can scrapbook and I can update the pictures in some of the frames I found in the garage.
In a little while, Caleb is going with his girlfriend and her family up to the mountains to have dinner at a restaurant.
John is karayokying with the girls... High School Musical songs.
Now that is a real man!
I leave you with this because the message is powerful:
Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.
