Poor li'l John Sam. Normally he doesn't ever take a nap, but today his low grade fever got the best of him. He says he doesn't need our Throw-up Bowl, but we're letting him keep it close just in case.
Caroline is enjoying watching a movie marathon. So glad we went out in the sprinkler yesterday, cause today we need to play quietly inside.

How much practice do you have believing in things that seem quite impossible?
In the words of Chicken Little, "Today is a new day." That gives everyone the same amount of time to dwell on all things--impossible or not. Use those minutes wisely. They sure add up fast, don't they?

John Sam wrote this note on April 16 and told me the happy face was a picture of me. :) He left me another separate note that said, "Do not get ugly please." I asked if I looked ugly when I was mad and he laughed a little, and then said yes. Even though it wasn't really complimentary towards me, he didn't say it with a mean spirit, but rather, an observant one. Out of the mouths of babes . . . .
Here is the drawing of our family that Caroline made in preschool. Her explanations are as follows. She is the purple person, because that's her favorite color. I (Mommy) am the red person, because that's my favorite color. That is my hair, not a crown. Daddy is the green person, the biggest. Brother (she always calls him that!) is the brown person, and "Whoops, Brother, sorry that I forgot to draw your legs." The black one, of course, is our dog Tokyo, who has four legs.

~This is the grumpy look I got when I asked John Sam to let me take a picture of where he lost his tooth! A little funny that he can be very grumpy and very cute at the same time. It's also highly possible that I take too many pictures.
~They always have so much fun on "Daddy's bed."
I think I finally figured out the image enlargement glitch. If I put the photos on "left alignment," suddenly, the links seem to work! Yay! Happy Thursday to everybody!

But the darndest thing happens, even when I feel way down in the dumps. John Sam lost another tooth last night, and Caroline still tried to beat him getting dressed this morning. The world keeps turning around, and the sun will even come up later. Life marches on, no matter what's on my mind today. I am glad I've got a lot to keep me busy and maybe by the time I get a chance to rest idle, I'll notice that someone really does listen - on His own time. I need a little more practice with that!

This is the third year I've forced everyone to pose together for pictures. Those pesky kids just keep growing. Whassup with that?!
