A Day Without Dad

Joey is out of town with his job and so I thought I would take this opportunity to have a fun day with the kids at home (no errands!) since they always miss him when he is gone and we needed a day like this anyway. We sang, and read, measured things, Jones cooked dinner, and enjoyed the Rescuers Down Under. It is quiet and night now so I miss Joey lots. He is such a wonderful Dad to my kids and my BEST friend. <3

Note: Oh, I should mention, Britt sold our table for me. Thank You so much Britt!!! And I have not finished the finish on my new table so we are using our kid table and card table. I also just mopped the floors so I had my kids eat over our picnic blanket. :)

Oh, and I forgot to mention. Jones had our red chenille throw over his head and ran into the tile counter. He did not cry or say anything. I turned around and looked at him and was shocked by the mark on his head (it looks WAY worse in person.) He said it hurt but he was fine. I couldn't believe the mark it left on him! I am almost nervous to send him to school with a mark like that! He was playing in the utensil drawer later and pulled out the garlic press and I thought to myself "Oh my goodness that is the same print as your forehead!!!" Who knew a blanket could leave such an impression!

Erin, you always inspire me with all of the fun things you do with your kids. They are going to grow up having the most amazing memories of their childhoods!

Oh Steph,

I love this Erin! You know one thing God convicted me on in the last year was to STAY home more! That when I was out and about we often missed oppurtunities to teach and discipline issues that were brimming under the surface. Which I have to admit is partly why I was wanting to get out of the house!

I can say now though, that the more structure I give my kids and the more I enjoy them the more I see them grow! :)

That's crazy, by the way about his "blankie" bruise! :) Go figure!
