Duh duh DUHHH!!!! #suspensemusic
****Disclaimer: Being the perfect-pastor-kids-angels we are, we would NEVER actually do ANY of these things.
1. Breakfast consists of hot dogs and hot chocolate. And hot chocolate for every meal after that.
We did actually feed them a really nice breakfast, but they were still hungry.
2. Do any thing we can to get out of school.
The bananas were going to rot!!!! I mean, why a waste good food when you can make it into banana bread???
3. Bribe the two year old with chocolate to clean the basement. By herself.
We had to clean the basement anyway, we had the chocolate, the baby wanted them, so we gave them to her:)
4. The first thing you do when they walk out the door is yell "PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
As soon as we said that, they walked back in because they forgot something. Oops:)
5. You put the kids to bed at 6 and tell them they have an hour to read.
We didn't feel to guilty until Serenity said "You guys are going to be the best parents ever when you grow up!" It's a good thing she didn't think to look at the clock:)
6. Drink straight lemon juice with three heaping spoonfuls of sugar in it. HYPERNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
7. Give a break on school because the house is really, really, really messy. Like deep clean everything. So it takes hours and hours. And we can't finish school because its 5:00.
8. We pretend that folding laundry is an amazingly awesomely fun job-almost like going to Cedar Point-so the two year old and six year old immediately volunteer to do it.
9. You make everything into a race. "I need a pencil....on your mark, get set, go!!! *thirty seconds later* WOW you guys are SO fast!! Thank you SOOOO much!!"
10. You randomly break for song time around the piano. Choir, right?
11. Pick all the unripe peaches from the trees and see who can throw them the hardest at the other trees.
12. Push the tire swing up to the tree and let the kids climb the tree and get on the tire swing. Then let it fall. This is actually really fun...if you don't hit the tree that is.
*****Disclaimer #2: For all those who knew that our parent's were away this weekend, we did have an adult (Thanks Lisa!!) here and we didn't do any of these things. Promise. ish.
Hello Ya'llses!!! (That's plural for "ya'all:)) We were at a conference for a week and we just got back on Saturday. The conference was at Falls Baptist Church in Menominee Falls, Wisconsin. I wasn't really expecting it to be much colder than it is here in Ohio because the temperature has mostly in the negatives or at least below freezing all winter. But as it turned out, it was FREEZING up there. The actual temperature was sort of cold, but the wind made the difference.
We older kids had to stay in the college dorms (they have a college too). To get to the girl's dorms, you have to go across the parking lot, up the boardwalk, up three flights of stairs and then you're there. It was so cold that the ends of my hair froze ;)
Ok, enough about the weather, as you saw from the last post, my mom is pregnant again. Do you like the header?? Yes, that's us and Yes it was freezing outside:) Charity(on the end) is a little blurry because she was talking the whole time! I think she was telling someone that she was freezing and needed a coat. But no children were harmed in the making of that picture.
Except for some frostbite.
When we left for the conference, it was raining here. When we came back, the snow was gone. When we left for church on Sunday, the snow was still gone. When we came back from church on Sunday, there was at least three inches on the ground.
That's the view from the back steps. Isn't it pretty!!!!
I took that picture outside in the snow without a coat on. You're welcome:)
And lastly since this is random, here's Charity.
God reached down in love and rescued Cassandra from her sin at the age of 21: changing her life, purpose, and focus forever.
