Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Carlee is home sick today. I just told her that it is just about time to go pick up the boys from school. She cried "NOOOOO, I don't want to pick up the boys, I don't want them to be here!!!"

It really has been a peaceful day with just us girls.


Can you see Ben? We went out for a short walk and got swallowed up in the fog. He ran ahead a short ways and turned around and said "OH MAMA! I can't see you anymore, the fog ate you!"

While we were in Canada I ended up being quite sick and spent most of my time in my old room in the basement.  One evening right before we had to fly back my brother and his family brought us Chinese food for supper because we were not going to have another chance to go to this restaurant. After we had eaten and I retreated back to my room Sam came to see me and we had this conversation...

Me:  Sam would you please bring me a glass of water?

Sam (with his face lit up and a big smile) I would LOVE to because good boys take care of their Mama's!!! 

Perhaps he has heard me say that a time or two before ;) 

But then he turned around and said this...

I am gonna be just like Uncle Scott because tonight he took care of his Mama and his sister when he brought us supper.
