Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.



Psalm 126:5-6

Back Home

Just a few little happenings that have been going on in our house since I got home on Tuesday night.

The first cute little happening was yesterday while we were reading Amy Carmichael. The book mentioned being expelled from school and the five year old asked what that meant. I told her it was what happens when you get kicked out of school. She said if I had to go to school mommy I would want to get expelled. I told her that would not be a good thing. She said yes it would because I would be back at home. I guess this one really doesn't want to go to school.

The second cute little happening was from my little Creighton who is 6. Gram had gotten her a new Easter Dress and she was asking me if she could get some new shoes and I told her yes. Well we were at Kmart looking at shoes and she kept on telling me she needed to see if they had a 6X. I could not figure out what she was talking about since we weren't looking at clothes and hadn't even gone near the clothing department. I finally stopped and said what do you need to get that is a 6X. "Shoes mom , for Easter." All of us began to laugh as we told her shoes did not come in the same size as clothes.

These are the memories I hope to never forget. The laughter of children and their sweet and innocent thoughts.

Oh, how fun! So glad you are archiving these little happenings! There are so many that passed by throughout the years that I didn't 'save'. The kids will love to come back and read through these after the years have come and gone!

Glad to have you back and hope your time away was a good one!

Susan, I knew before I read the entire blog, it was probably shoes! You have so many daily happenings to treasure. Dad and I will show you how to put them on a CD for safekeeping when we are with you this summer. Love Nana C
