Jack quote

I came upon this in the garage. Mind you, Jack and Max are NEVER this organized.

”we smash rocks…with safety glasses…to see what’s in them”

There was a big pause with one eyebrow raised when he said, ”with safety glasses.”

I laughed.

Life with boys is anything but dull.


This Sunday we will be studying the book of Jonah as we work our way through the whole Bible. The kids were doodling as I read the whole story.

These two

The greet me almost every morning with “I bless you Mommy.” It’s so sweet and I feel loved before the crazy of my day begins.

Lake Fun

The lake is my happy place. We enjoyed it with friends this afternoon.

Pulse Twin Cities

Carl worked this event and it was the first time I brought all the kids to see him work.

It was a little bit of a hullabaloo to find our “Friends and Family” seating, but we finally made it after a 30 minute adventure of going up and down and around and around.

Jack/Max to work

Jack and Max went with Carl to the cities today for work. I heard they were rockstars.

Broken Silas

Silas took a nasty fall off the retaining wall at the lake last night. We took him into orthopedics this morning. He broke his right wrist and has a hairline fracture in his left arm radius. So, a cast and a sling will be used for the next three weeks. Wednesday we go in to repair his chipped tooth. I’m glad that God heals the body in miraculous ways.

Lydia’s new creation

It was my turn for my hat. Carl and I always say #BetterTogether so my sweet Lydia made me the hat to go with it.
