Well , we got the bug. The three littlest ones have a cold. So I opted to not go spread the wealth at church today. Diana (my step mom) is going to take the two oldest to the service for me. I'm so glad. I hate to miss Communion Sunday. It is important for that reflection and getting right with God.
The little ones are watching Prince of Egypt. Andrew seems to be really interested in Moses. It will make good discussion since the movie is not exactly accurate. I'm not afraid of that, I think it makes great dialogue.
The boys are really into Survivorman. Great show! Here are some pictures of how they used their imagination to create a shelter for themselves. I just love some of the things they come up with! It's homeschooling at it's finest!
Today should be VERY mellow. I'm looking forward to it. I will have to drop Josh off and pick him up at the ACTS Superbowl Bash. He can't wait. He is getting his MVP award in front of everyone. I wish I could be there. Steve has to work, so he can't be there either. I think he is getting a trophy and everything.
I read an amazing book in one day yesterday. I literally couldn't put it down. It's called, "Same Kind of Difference as Me". Catherine, you would love it! I don't think I have ever bawled like that over a book before. It took me off guard and I had to hide in the bedroom so the kiddos wouldn't worry about me. I have a whole different set of eyes towards the homeless and towards anyone who is suffering cancer. I highly recommend it. It puts Christianity and religion to the test and all of our pat answers that we give people who are suffering. I was so engrossed in it I didn't do my Bible study that day. So today I made up for it. It's not really a chore anymore, it is such a pleasure. I can't wait to learn something new!
I think I might make some caramel corn for the kids and play Monopoly with Marcus while Jacob is sleeping. Marcus wanted so badly to go to the ACTS thing, but he is one year away from being old enough. So we'll do something special. We both love Monopoly! I just have to be careful not to sit too long.
The dog is doing great. She is so quiet, I forget she is here until I see her all stretched out on the floor and almost trip over her! I am so glad I prayed over the perfect dog for our family. I believe God has blessed us it.
Pray for little Andrew, he's the sickest right now. He keeps sneezing and coughing. He doesn't know how to blow his nose, so he keeps sniffing it all in then he gets mad because he can't breathe!
