creative writing

Fridays are usually days that the older two write letters to whom ever their heart desires. This past week we have been reading some Psalms so instead of our usual letter writing they were asked to write their own Psalm. So I have my daughters to share. Would be happy to share my son's as well but he has misplaced it. I try my best to organize the boy and I have hopes that all my hard work will some day pay off in that area.....until then.

Oh thank you Lord
that we have games

Oh thank you Lord
that I have a family

Oh thank you Lord
that I have four brothers

Oh thank you Lord
that I have a Bible

Oh thank you Lord
that I have you!!!

Here is a song I wanted to add....it's been stuck in my head all week.

painting wars

Left with the warning "only paint on the paper" I looked up from helping the older kids with something to see the paint brushes flying at each other.
I guess they were using some restraint as they only got each others back. #4 was a disaster when finished as he ended up painting with his hand. But they had fun and the paint didn't end up on anything inside so all is good.

A beautiful visitor we had today.
