Jesus in mine...

I hear from upstairs,
Judd -"Hi, Jesus"
Caroline - "Can you play with me"
Judd- "Come to my house, Jesus"
Caroline- mumbling.......Judd- mumbling
Judd- "give him to me"
Caroline- "Jesus is mine!"
Judd- "No, Caroline, he is mine"
C- "Mine"
J- "Mine"
C- "Mine"
J - "Mommy, Caroline is being selfish and not acting God's way"

A "Jesus" figure found its way in with the doll house people. Not sure where he came from. Glad they welcomed him but we may need to revisit the Jesus is for everyone lesson!

I think helping with homework is way harder than doing homework. I am sorry mom for all the times I made my 5 minute homework take 2 hours- will Grace ever utter those words???

Waiting on a bug...

We noticed a stink bug on the window outside Grace's room - great fun for pre-schoolers! The bug crawled a little too high for us to see him so Judd had to think of a way to get him back down for "observation". Taping the window and calling him didn't work, it actually is probably the reason he ran away- he moved on to lure him with friends. He had Caroline go gather all his bugs. They then lined them on the window seel thinking the outside bug would want to come play with other bugs. They waited and waited and waited... so long that I think they forgot why the even started playing bugs to begin with that morning!

Getting back...

This entry is just so I can check it off my to do list! I so want to blog for so many reasons but I can't seem to get myself started - it is as if I can't find "THE" thing to start with. Not sure why I think it has to be something big but this is my attempt to take the first step. There is just so much that goes on here that I know I will treasure any sort of journal/blog I keep in the years to come. This will be my reminder that although we aren't always productive (so it seems to me) we are learning new things everyday and it is the cumulation of daily living that makes life rich!
