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.

Brain dump & Testing

Alright y'all. I am testing this out. I am missing my blog, but not missing the time it takes to keep it up. Especially since I am far from tech savvy. I takes forever to upload pictures and all that jazz, so I figured I would try to post from my phone once in a while. You know when I do have spare time it is usually waiting in a carpool line or on a soccer field or in a doctors office. Those are usually the times when I also have a few coherent thoughts rolling around in my head too. So let's see how this turns out. Here are just a few pics I've snapped with my phone over the last few days.

Love that these guys are getting along so well. Boys are just the best. Little girls are great but they get all the hype. Boys are so easy on their mamas. And the lack of whining and drama is awesome. Let's hear it for the boys!!!!

Here's my Kobi right after her field day. LOVE the socks. We had to hit the w@lmart for fabric for her new sewing machine. It's so refreshing to see her pick out the brightest most obnoxious patterns. Why do we start getting so safe when we grow up. Hope she never becomes a beige /white fabric picker like her old lady.

We are loving the warm weather,we are always playing outside. Love spring

Someone forgot to tell this kid that taking out the trash was a chore. He'd fight you for the privilege. Look at that smile.

Alright. Now here is a burning question out there for all the mamas. Do you have landscape lighting? Do your kids DESTROY it? Here is our lighting graveyard. Is it a lost cause? Do we just rip it out?

It looks so nice when it works. But we are constantly fixing them. Am I alone in my struggle ? I think we have given up :(

Now to see how this turns out. I fear the pictures will be all wonky. It may take a few posts for me to get the bugs out. Hang with me:)

You said it!!! About the boys I mean...with 3 boys and 2 girls, sometimes I could just lock myself in a room with the boys with a "no girls allowed" sign hung out.
The boys' lack of drama is great on mamas. (but, oh, what would we do without those precious girls)
...and as for the landscape lighting...we gave up long ago :)

Not loving the phone pictures, but totally understand the time-saving aspect of blogging on the run.

If you want to print your blog off for posterity, I'd highly recommend bringing a purse sized camera that takes good photos along with you all of the time, write your posts in the car and then upload the photos later. Those grainy cell phone photos won't work in a printed format.

And, my opinion is that boys just rock. Love, love, love having boys around -- lots and lots of them. Love my girly-os as well, but there's just something about teenage boys that makes me smile (most of the time!).

Less drama with boys, but definitely more bodily function noises :-) I've never had any of those lights just because I was afraid they'd all get broken.
Your oldest son reminds me of mine. That silly photo from the birthday could so be him. He's a youth pastor, so it works well :-)
Btw, I'm Mikki's mom. She sometimes comments on your blog.
