Is anyone else having a hard time keeping up with their life besides me? We are down to a mere 3 kids (count 1 of those as a driving, $ earning, vote casting, functioning adult, and it's really just 2)- the least amount of dependent children we've lived with in a decade. You'd think my life would be less hectic. The reality is that I have been busy. Busy, busy and having a hard time keeping everything done.
On an unrelated note it snowed today. Lovely, fresh, big as quarter's snow. 6". Woot!
Why do my kids think that they should have been born with all of the educational downloads they were gonna get already installed?
“What’s this? How is it that you can change your feelings from pleasure to anger overnight about a mere shade tree that you did nothing to get? You neither planted nor watered it. It grew up one night and died the next night. So, why can’t I likewise change what I feel about Nineveh from anger to pleasure, this big city of more than 120,000 childlike people who don’t yet know right from wrong, to say nothing of all the innocent animals?”
(love the bit about the innocent animals- the NKJV talks about the hierarchy of plant, animal, man- with no apologies for being species-ist.)
Reading The Ramsey Scallop by Temple to the kids. One of my very favorite books, set in the Medieval Ages. A beautiful story of journey, faith restored, and young love. This is the 3rd time I've read it out loud and the youngers are enjoying every bit as much as my older kids did.
