Andy: YOU! I think you're even awesomer!

Kevin: You do???

Andy: Yeah! Momma's just tough.

guess what???

1. Ben wore undies all day today with zero accidents. Even dry at nap time! Praise God!!!

2. Andy ate bat wings and drank vampire blood at school today. Yummy!

So, this week, I had resolved that I was cooking dinner every night, except Wednesday. (I used to be so good about this, but I just haven't stuck with these past few weeks!) When I got home, Kevin asked me what I was making--taco salad. He said, "Sounds great!" Then he says, "We should eat out one night this week. I am craving Boston's." I said, "How about tonight?" He started laughing. What can I say? I am weak.

vocabulary lesson

From Andy:
sentence) "Mom, Ben keeps erupting me. He won't stop talking over me!!!"

From Ben:
sentence) "I really love the gibbling Joker [on Batman]!"

Oh, they learn something new everyday!

not much

I know it's been a while...
Right now, Kevin, Andy and Ben are playing in the tent that Kevin has set up in our dining room (We no longer have dining room furniture because we gave it to my brother). They are playing space ship and I am just sitting here listening to them play. The boys have amazing imaginations. They are blasting off to Mars. Then to the fairest times. ????? Kevin isn't real sure what that means...maybe the fair? We went to the fall festival at my school yesterday--maybe that is where that came from.
And for today's Bible lesson...Andy's class talked about King Saul last week. He told me this morning on the way to church that "Saul used to be just a plain, old farmer with a farmer's hat. Then God gave him a crown and he took off the farmer hat and put it on. Then he got to be the KING of the Isrealites." I'm pretty sure those were his exact words. I love him so much.

I asked Andy today if he did math at school.  He said, "What's math?"  Ben said, "Matthew, Mark, Luke, John!"  I guess someone's been listening when I sing the New Testament song!
