My son had some rather interesting things to say in this morning's family prayers. Usually he prays that we'll be happy. This time he prayed that we would be good so we could be happy.

Love that little guy.

Mary: “I don’t think skinny jeans are trendy anymore.” Me: “Oh yeah? Well, I don’t care much about trends myself.” Mary: “Me neither. Trends are just like a wave that washes away.” Glad she’s learning […]
Hi, I’m Mary and I’m new. I just got encouraged by my mom to write down my thoughts. Because we looked at mom’s old posts, and realized how fun it was to read our old stories. […]
We finally made it back to Grandmas. Not that we’re here infrequently (we don’t have our own washer and dryer right now) but the kids have been begging me since Wednesday or so, because they’d […]
Found. I should add that at one point a few days ago she was asking, “What is the word that means ‘explodes easily’?” Apparently she needed a replacement for the word “fragile.”
