Since our family shower last week, today is the first time I've been able to sort through our cards.  I wanted to put each child's cards in a box for them to read later.  There are so many beautiful cards, with the most touching and heartfelt words ever.  One particular one, however, that touched me personally, was one that said; "It's never been a question of if, It's always been a question of when", and the inside says, "And now is your time". 
What more can I say?

Now I lay me...And Liberty and Justice For All :)

Each night we ask our sweet children what they want to pray about, and are encouraging them to say their own prayers- a conversation with God.  We encourage them to just talk to Him.  It doesn't have to sound like anything but a conversation.  Tonight our sweet Katherine had trouble getting started.  I did a little guiding, and started her off with, "Now I Lay Me", which she followed.  Once it seemed like she had it, I stopped and let her continue.  So here was her prayer...
"Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep,  by His hands we all are fed, Give us Lord our daily bread, AMEN

The Difference Between Boys and Girls

Tonight the 4 of us were at Sonic for a snack after a concert.  Aside from the obvious, the differences between boys and girls really intrigue and delight me:).  While sitting there having our snack, I noticed that both Will and Katherine were looking at the same long legged, roller skate clad "car hop".  Katherine was fascinated with the dynamics of her job- what she did, and how she did what she did on skates- if she got free food, and if she could eat anything she wanted while she was working, etc. etc. etc. :)
Will, on the other hand, was watching the car hops every move for quite a different reason.  I pointed this out to Randy, that our children were watching the same person, but for two completely different reasons!
Ahh, the difference between girls and boys- so funny to watch!
