Fun times around here

Boo :) I let the babies play in the field while the big kids are in their class at the co-op, boo loves picking flowers :)

Baby girl on her first chilly morning :)

Bug had her first dance show, they were all so cute
on stage. She did pretty good :)

Pretty girls :)

After her show :) she was so happy!!

Mama (with a crazed look..) an baby girl

I love to let the kids be creative, whether painting rocks,paper or pumpkins. I let baby girl do some finger painting but ..I dont think it was a hit :( she thought it was weird , didnt really want to touch it, an tried to eat it. Yuck! Then she was mad because it was gross ! Oh well i will try again :)

"Mama, do you REALLY want me to touch this?

"Oh I dont think sooooo...."


Playing outside with the water table :)
October in florida

Look at those lashes. Melt me :)

Bug added bubbles :)
Our week has been great. So happy to hear about all the FAST court dates in Ethiopia now that the courts are open :) Congrats!
~a lady came up to me , after bugs dance class and asked for $2 for gas, said she forgot her wallet. I gave her $4 (that or a 20 :) and wished her a great day. Bug says " how do you know she was telling the truth?" I said I dont. but if she needed it , and I didnt give, that reflects on me. If she lied well..that reflects on her. I would rather do the right thing . She says " Oh mama I bet you made God happy" love my kids !!
~We are going to take another little vacation. Off to do some serious r& back sunday
~my head hurts from all the thinking we have been doing around here...we know God has a plan for all of us. We feel we heard part of it , while in Ethiopia...we all live with so much "stuff" that we dont need and it starts to define us. We dont need these things to be happy or to do God's work. We are trying to see the plan. God & family and bringing glory to God. Those things matter. Big house? cable? many tvs? tons of toys? ignoring those in need? These things are not part of big plan.
Have a wonderful week everyone !! Pray us some cool weather k? Please continue to pray for sweet Vincent and Abby :)

Are These Kids All Yours? said...

That moral needs to be taught to all children & adults :)
Have you tried using pudding for paint- or put food coloring in cool whip- then she would like to eat it for real and you can "paint" on wax paper. We do this for little kids at camp.
