Raising Responsive Children

I'm doing some research on a Bible study and came across this quote which I like:

"A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek
Him first to find her." -- Maya Angelou

Kids and pets

This was my new kitchen helper. He had been around for about a week. I decided he was too cute to worry about but the little ones caught him today and lost him in the living room. I had directed them to take him to the garden but they wanted to show him to me first and got sidetracked. Now he's on the loose-he better hope the cat doesn't notice him!

We drove around today and stopped at a beach park to walk/play around. I had three children who were happy to pose for me and one little rascal whom I caught anyway.

Shave Ice and Ponies

I think these were the favorites of the night. #3 rode the ponies 3 times. #2 rode them 4 times. #4 would nod his head wildly with a huge grin if asked if he rode the ponies. #1 got too busy playing in the bounce house to stand in line for the ponies.
I think #4 had 2 shaved ice-I saw #2 with 2 different ones also. I was helping serve food so everyone was in care of dad, running from place to place. All had a great time but were ready to come home and crash into bed, I heard not one word of protest.

When we were eating lunch out on the deck today #3 told me that the trees were moving because they were thirsty. #2 tried to explain that no they were moving because the wind was blowing them. nope says #3 they are thirsty. I guess they were trying to wave to the rain clouds 'come here and give us a drink please'
