Had to stay late for a meeting yesterday and had church last night. I picked the boys up at 4:50 and then we ran to WalMart for Dalton's prize. Dalton got a 6 dollar motorcycle (boom boom bibible as Dylan calls it) and Dylan got a 13 dollar bed time story book. These prizes are killing the bank account! At church Dalton said the 15 books of the Bible he knows. He can say them all the way to Nehemiah. He has learned 12 bible verses and the fruits of the spirit. It's amazing all the things their little brains can hold. Dylan can say the fruits of the spirit, Genesis and Exodus and he can complete some of Dalton's Bible verses if you get him started. I figure if he can quote scenes from Barnyard, then he can learn Bible verses too. I'm so proud of our boys! We didn't get home til 7:45 and they had to have baths. Late night but they were both in bed by 8:45. They both woke up once last night but that's it. We all got up at 6:45. I had to shower and be at work by 7:15, I didn't get there till 7:17, but that's pretty good considering. Good thing we live close to work! Today I have to stay late for another meeting then go shopping for breakfast for FCA tomorrow. But then it's FRIDAY!! Can I get a Hooray?? I love Fridays.
My mom asked for prayer for a friend of hers son. His name is Michael Blake. He's in his 30's and has a wife and young children. He was diagnosed with cancer, went into remission and now it's back. His doctors have told him to quit work and cherish this little bit of time with his family. How sad, but we know that our God is a God of miracles. He can be cured, "For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37. I claim that verse for Michael and his family, I pray that you will do the same.
Pray about FCA tomorrow. It's a fabulous outreach ministry! I Hope the rest of your day is great! Remember God is good ALL the time:)

Prizes can break the pocket book! Luke thinkss he should get one for evrything. He is slowly and I do mean slowly learning that you do not get a prize for everything and that sometimes you do things b/c that is what you're suppose to do, ha!

I know what you mean about their brains, last night we had Aubrey doing math, at age 4. It blows my mind that she can look at a picture, count how many, write that number, then count the ones next to it, write that number, and then add them and write that total. What was I doing at 4.

PS-We are loving the blog.
