Random Stuff

Since the last time I posted-

* All 5 of us had the stomach flu this week- Micah a week ago Saturday, Eric Monday afternoon, Isaiah and Elijah Monday evening and finally me Tuesday morning. It took a few days for us all to feel normal again, but we're good now.

* Spouse and Family had a luau for new and returning families Monday night. It was our first event of the year and went really well.

* Eric's birthday was Friday and we had a party for him and another friend who's birthday was Wednesday.

* We are LOVING the Olympics!

* Cassie's mom was here this week and made dinner for all of us one night- YUM!

* We got lots of calls on the rental house and we're headed to IN next weekend to hopefully rent it out to new folks.

* Elijah is ready to head to school on Wednesday, but he is- in his own words, "A little nervous."

* Micah's teacher comes for the home visit Thursday.

I'd love to post about church this morning, but I'm not sure how to put it into words yet. Eric and I have both been moved by services lately... now sure how to describe the movement, but it is good- very good.

Hey Erin!

I'm so sorry you had the stomach flu! YUCK! Once again... how do you do all of that? Stomach flu? With 3 children? And a husband? And a job? And a dog (do you have a dog)? You're AMAZING. Thanks so much for your words of encouragement about the school year. I know you TOTALLY get my last post. :) Thanks for the prayers! I'll take all I can get! :)

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
