Father's Day

We spent Father's Day with my parents in Ft. Thomas. We were exhausted from our jam-packed weekend, but we had a great time. On Sat. morning we went to the natural history museum in Cincinnati, this is a great museum if anyone is ever there visiting. Our 4 year old did not feel very good, so it was a little much for him, but everyone else loved it. A quote from Noah, "Mommy, there were too many bones."

After lunch and a quick nap, we went to the pool, a great way to spend a hot afternoon.

Sunday after church we headed to a great lunch and then to a local firehouse. One of my dad's best friends is a Fire Chief at a local firestation. He graciously let us bring the kids to check out the trucks and other equipment along with the station. Thank you Chuck!!! He even let the kids pull the cord for the air horn on the ladder truck, it scared them all, but they quickly recovered.

This week has been full of Vacation Bible School. We have had a great time on the Boomerang Express, but it has been tiring since the kids have not been in bed before 9:30 each night. I even branched out of my comfort zone this year and helped teach the 1st graders (I'm more comfortable with the littler kids) It has been a great week. How was your week?

I took this video on Tuesday night at dinner. At first Riley was pretending to be asleep, but it quickly turned into the real thing. Enjoy, we did!!!!!!

Here are a few random pictures of the kids.

Teaching Me

You know those moments when somebody says something that makes you stop and think? I had one of those last week. We were playing with sidewalk chalk outside and having a great time. The kids were having a great time drawing things only their own imagination could recognize. Noah came to me and asked me to draw a heart for him, "his heart". I readily complied and drew his heart, when I was finished Noah promptly asked me to draw God. Not understanding what we was asking I sat there for a moment before asking him what he meant.

His answer, "Mommy, I need you to draw God in my heart because that is where He lives." His simple request left me speechless and gave me a lot of think about. You see, when Noah asked me to draw his heart I had been doodling hearts on the sidewalk; empty hearts and yet my 4-year-old immediately wanted his heart filled, not with other drawings, not with his name, but with God.

I'm no artist and wasn't sure at first how to fulfill his request so we settle on me writing GOD inside his heart.
