Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

School Days





Ok so how is this for efficient blogging, 2 posts in 2 days.  Well here is some of the cuteness from the first day of school.  All 4 kiddos are in 4 different schools.  My father in law joked that he was going to get me the -Mom's taxi -license plate for the front of my car.."Don't you dare!!!" ... C started his sophomore year last week and he couldn't be more handsome... I miss him during the day,  he's my bud & my very own personal trainer, (he loves making me lift weights at the gym, and I try to weinnie (sp?) my way out of it, but it was fun all summer to have a workout buddy... I would homeschool him if he wasn't already 10 times smarter than me...  & he loves his little sis (Nice bed head, Mina)!  Our little girl also started Kindergarten last week, along with her entourage... she had 7 of us walking her in with video cameras and all.  Poor kid, can you tell she is like, "Alright guys, you can leave now, I have work to do and y'all are making a scence"  She got right down to business and she has been loving it..Check out her boots, I had figured she would have grown out of them over a totally flip-flop wearin' summer, but no,  her boots live on, she has kicked the whole fronts off the things, but they remain her favorite shoes ever.  I'm gonna have to have them bronzed or something.  She has grown up dramatically in the last week, amazing!  And today was the day for the little guys.  J.C. Started his last year of preschool today,  big stuff,  he has the same awesome teachers as his big sister did last year, so I am thrilled.  He will do great.  He will love having his own thing and not having Mina following him around to grab at whatever it is that he is holding at any given moment.   And last but not least Mina,,, it was actually her open house day the day the Mommies get to go and hang with the kids.  She had no use for me, really... Can you tell,  look at her photo,  It's like, "Let me in this place, NOW"  She is little miss social butterfly & loves to check out new  places and new faces.  She is not one for just hangin' low, for sure.  I hadn't planned on putting her in a preschool class, but she is going to LOVE it.. 2 days a week, for about 3 hours.   She is going full force these days, she is about 21 months old and is hitting the, do I dare say, "terrible two's" a bit early... She is a little octopus, she can get into more things than is possible with just 2 hands.... You gotta love this last photo of her in time out, just below her newest masterpiece!!! Oh, the joy of it all!!! Never a dull moment, and we wouldn't want it any other way!

21 months and into everything...yup...Jay too! And coloring on the walls...UGH! I got erasable crayons to try to minimize the damage. All your kids are so gorgeous! Don't you just love that they love school? Jay went back last week too...such a little man. He is already telling me, "I go see Debbie! I go see Shirly! I say HI GUYS!" hee hee...

I LOVE the picture of Mina and the wall. She looks SO busted. She is too cute. How do you ever discipline that cute little face?

You should just make a frame and hang it on the wall right in front of Mina's "art".
By the way I am totally impressed with 2 updates so close together!!!!

I had that same print on the walls in my last house. Same color too! Except mine extended to the kitchen cabinets and the artist used a Sharpie!
Is that Marc wiping a tear on the way to bring K to school? :-)
Keep up the good work!
