Jack quote

“I’m so awesome, I don’t need a weapon.”

Text from a friend

Quiz- how you know your kids think your life is all fun and games….
When you are in the bathroom unwrapping a tampon and they are at the door …”are you eating candy????? I want some…. I want some candy!!!!”
Yes children. My life is all about candy and jumping on the bed!!!

At least I have friends with just as much crazy as I do.

Fun day with Grandpa and Grandma

They came this morning to get a coffee from Carlos and Grandma took Jack and Max back to her house for the morning. The other Larsen children busted a move on their schoolwork so we could go to Fuji for lunch.

Then we made a spontaneous decision to go to the Brainerd to the land with G & G. Poor Carl had to stay home to work. He missed out on a beautiful day.

Life Schooling

I try to remind myself that I don’t homeschool…I life school.

Life school means that every day everywhere we are learning.

Yesterday we had the privilege of having a woman over from church who suffers from Dementia. We actually hope that it will be a weekly or biweekly event to give her husband a little respite care. Now my children are learning how to interact with someone who doesn’t remember their names or maybe even from 10 minutes ago.

They are learning compassion.

They are learning how to ease pain or agitation.

They are learning that sin in this fallen world has created disease.

They are learning that one day, Dori will be restored in heaven where she can dance, run and sing. And Lord willing, we will all be there with her praising Jesus together.

And that my friends means 100 times more to me than if they can ever solve calculus problems.

So, Thank You Ken and Dori for sharing your lives with us and teaching us much much more than what’s in a textbook.

Big Sister Grace bought Jack and Max costumes for Christmas.  She let them open their presents early to enjoy for Halloween. We will have mighty cute trick-o-treaters this year!
