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.

The Things Kids Say

This past week my older girls have been measuring their hair to see if it is long enough for Locks of Love. Some of them are ready and some of them are very close. They seem to be obsessed with this right now and every time I turn around some one has a ruler in their hands.

Last night daddy was sitting on the couch and we were all just kind of talking about the day, and what we should do this weekend, just hanging out with dad. As we were sitting there our four year old gets out the ruler and takes it over to measure her daddy's hair (he has no hair). She then proceeds to climb up into his lap and this is what she says, "Daddy your hair is zero inches, so you have no hair." It was priceless. She was so serious but it was so funny. Love the things little kids say.

No Pool Yet

Summer is in full swing here in our neck of the woods. So what does that mean for our family? Well usually it means lots and lots of time at the pool.
Not this summer. So far we have gone once and on that day we stayed for only an hour. We had to leave early because my oldest had pulled something in her back and she could hardly walk.
The next week we were going to make up for it but that didn't happen.
Then this last week we thought for sure we would get some pool time in. Nope everyone got the flu. I mean everyone , even mommy and daddy.
So today is Monday and I thought hey we can go to the pool. That would be a great afternoon treat. Well guess what? We are not going to the pool. Levi decided to grab the hot skillet that his sister was holding and has second degree burns on all four fingers. The blisters cover the whole length of the fingers and part of his thumb. So I guess we won't be going this week either.
Praying next week we can get to the pool and enjoy some time relaxing, before summer slips away.

Our view

This is what we saw daily. Tanks. Levi loved every minute of it. I think he thought it was a parade or something. They went right down the road that sat in front of our campsite, so the little man had front row service. Daddy keeps saying he is going to be a Marine. We will see. Thought this was a cute picture. Retired Marine and Marine in Training.

Tuckered Out

A friend of mine had posted a picture of her child sleeping in the car on a recent road trip. I thought it was very cute. Then I remembered I had snapped a picture of sleeping children while on our trip. These two were tuckered out after only 5 days we still had 11 to go.
