So what if I decided to have 2 first days of school...I tried you know!!! We really did do school that first day I posted back on August 9th...I think we did a week of school...Not full school, but review...Then, we moved into the new home....School stopped for a bit...I told everyone I started, but after a week of no school, I thought it would be a good idea just to say we didn't start school yet so that I wouldn't be made out at liar...Ha!

Anyway, for real we started today...Tons and tons of distractions, but still good attitudes from everyone...I love being back in the swing of things...I love these pictures, just for the mere fact of what they choose to do on their breaks...I love it and I love my sweet boys...They truly are best friends...They would say, "Mom, we're brothers"...They don't get what I mean, but they will...

I see their hearts growing for the LORD and it makes me smile...I love to watch them get excited about the Word of GOD! They truly apply it to their lives...If you read in my last post or I think the one before that, you will know what I'm talking about...Today, I had to get a few things from Walmart & Mikey had some birthday money left over...Matthew is trying to explain to Mikey why he needs to get this certain Lego...
Hmm, really?
Well of course I step in...I tell Mikey he can pick out whatever he wants and I'm sorry Matt, but it is his birthday money and he shouldn't feel pressured....Matt agreed...After Mikey picks out his Lego he asks how much money he will have left...I tell him...He says, "Matt, you can pick out whatever you want with the rest of my money"...Matt was overjoyed, so happy and thankful...I on the other hand, wanted to run up and down the isles and tell everyone what a sweet heart my boy has...It just blesses me so much to see my boys wanting to bless others...

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others....Philippians 2:2-4


  1. LOVE! So wonderful to see that the kids REALLY do listen, isn't it?? Your boys are indeed sweet, Godly men-in-training!

  2. Oh my! I love that boy!!!! You know he has a special place in my heart! Every since he was in diapers and his little butt was hanging out and I was his teacher in Sunday school! WAHHHHH!!!!! I miss you!!! And it kills me that I missed his birthday!!!! WAHHHH!!!!! Remember when you didn't like me??? When I told you to obey your husband??? and now you are telling me to obey!! How did that happen??? Sanctification girl!!! You Rock!! Oh, and I love your pictures : )

  3. I love seeing my children be a blessing!
