I know my blog isn't the most eloquent or best put together. I wish I had a way of writing that many of my fellow bloggers and friends do. Check out the ones I'm following to see what I mean. Mine just doesn't hold a candle to theirs! But its ok, this is just me and we'll muddle through it together. I appreciate everyone that is following, commenting, everything, and especially those who have the boys in their prayers. They have sooo many people praying for them. I have a world clock app on my phone so I can easily remember what time it is there. I wonder what they are doing. I try to say a prayer for them around the time they are probably going to bed, and wish they were here so I could hear about their day. One of my most favorite parts of my day is having the kids come jump on the bed with me and talk about all kinds of stuff. I miss that with the older two who have moved out. One night all three of the girls were in my room with me, and I was reading Junie B Jones is Not a Crook to A, the youngest. If you haven't read this series, they are hilarious. They are about this little girl, Junie,B Jones and it follows her through kindergarten up through 2nd or 3rd grade so far. Well, we kept getting the giggles over the story. Junie B had some new mittens, and she was running around the playground showing everyone. This author, Barbara Park, has the funniest way of writing. So, A is trying to listen, K and C are both cracking up, I can't hardly read for laughing. Once A goes to bed, me and the two older girls (older teenage here!) keep reading to each other, waving our hands around like Junie is doing, tears just running down our faces. We get
And another funny thing that my kids used to do. They don't do it so much anymore (which is a good thing to everyone around us) but it still cracks us up. Did you ever watch Mad TV? Remember Lorraine? She would go to the dentist, the store, wherever, and wind up saying UGHUGHUGH about 100 times during the skit. Well, B started doing it, and he would love to come up to us and do it right in our ear. Then the girls started it, all three of them. Then their friends did it. They even got some of my girl scouts doing it! just a stupid little family joke thing, but we love it.
As I sat here typing this, C came in and sat on my bed with me. She says hey to everyone! She's my hummingbird, the one who will come in and out fifteen times telling me goodnight, and going to her room, then back again to start it all over. Just like a hummingbird. lol. She's tall, about the same height as Sam, and I think they look a lot alike. She doesn't see it though. I can't wait to get a pic of the two of them together. Duncan reminds me so much of B, so I can't wait to see them together. They are both skinny as can be, but B is about 6 foot tall. I can't wait to see where their place in the family will be, what role they will fill. Will one of them take over as the head clown of our circus? lol.
Ok, enough rambling, or chasing squirrels as I call it. I have to get some sleep!! Good night to all, sweet dreams, and thank your for including the boys in your prayers.
