You Know Your Getting Old When…

Okay, so yesterday Brian bought me flowers and had them sent here while he was at work.  (Yes, I know I have said this a lot lately, but it was just so cool and unexpected and sweet.)  I was delighted and immediately put them in a vase, at Acadia’s suggestion.  (Her lightbulb idea was, “Mom, we could put them in a bottle!”  No, we don’t see many cut flowers around these parts.)

The vase went on the dining room table.  As I stood back admiring the lovely tulips, Gannon came over.  He took in the view of the tabletop, which is where we do school, of course.  Not to mention where we eat breakfast, feed the baby, toss our wet boots, and brush our teeth.  Okay, maybe not those last two.  But it was kind of a mess.  Gannon looked at it all and had this suggestion.  “We should take a picture of this and put it online with a big FAIL.”

My eight-year-old knows of the FAIL Blog.  And he uses this information to trash my housekeeping skills.

Aren’t they pretty though?  I think they look nice against the background of the upturned yellow highchair tray.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
