Another day of the Portholes
Today was an interesting day. I think it must have been a full moon. I used to take pride in that my boys could busy themselves and understand that Mom and Dad had work to be done. Today was NOT the case. I had to take the 3 younger ones plus a friend from church down to the building so I could work on a few portholes. The kids were crazy intense on bugging me to paint. Non-stop begging! So finally I gave in. I created very attractive trash bag painting attire. For the most part this worked well...unless you are six! Joel's trash bag garment was dragging on the ground and through the paint pan and all over his bod! The main reason for our trash bag ensemble was to protect the not so cheap school uniforms!! In less than a half a second Joel was stripped to his "grundies" and Mom was running out to the hose to see if the pants could be spared. Here are a few shots of our fun day...NOTE: Mom didn't get one thing done that day!
"Mom this is embarrassing!"

Portholes in the Toddler Room. Possibly called "Little Tugs" We are open for suggestions to go with our boat theme.
We've come a long way baby! John and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary this past February. It's been a while since it was just the two of us and we have a long way to go. On the days that we don't say "What were we thinking?" we are praising God for our crazy family of 5 boys...and lets not forget the 6th boy that lives with us and has wormed his way into our hearts and lives (I'll save that story for another day).I am so blessed to have the Lord in my life. He shows Himself faithful to me everyday. I am married to a Pastor and wouldn't change a thing...I have everything I need plus 113 more things!
