Kalea: Just turned 5 last Thursday. I just wrote about it last week in my 'poor man's Mary' of a blog. She will have her big Chuck E Cheese party this Saturday. I am hoping that 10 friends will show up, no more, no less... She's getting big. As I dropped her off at school yesterday, she ran to her normal group of BFFs. They were all clad in their winter boots, jeans, hot pink splatter paint shirts and headbands in their shoulder length hair. Cookie cutter clusters of girls all chatting and giggling; comparing boots and tacky shirts....a fashion that I will never understand. One would think that my once sweet baby is perching on the throws of teenage-hood with her persistence and longing to look just like her friends.
Nathan: Keeps growing and growing. I keep seeing him and wondering 'who IS that kid?' He is very analytical and will be stuck on a thought for hours. When we went to the Log Cabin Village, for example, he was quite distraught about the water fountains. We showed him the what the real water fountains looked like back then, but for some reason he was obsessed with the modern day ones forgetting that they were in themselves modern. He asked me if the water was so good after sitting there for hundreds of years. After I explained to him that that the water was indeed good, he spent the rest of the afternoon pondering where the water comes from. While I come up with wild theories such as the pipe from the water fountain leads down to an underground cave where wild rabbits perpetually squeeze cactus water into the pipe as punishment for stealing carrots; Nathan seeks more logical truths.
Me: My goal for this weekend is to put in my application for my Master's at Liberty U. God is teaching me about patience in every facet in my life. Our family is doing 365 Days of Target. It's been pretty fun making videos.
Steve: Is still in Seminary working on his Masters. He will be cleared for the military soon. He is getting pretty restless, so it will be interesting to hear about God's plan for him.....once again, I will soon be dying of impatience... He has found a group of pals at church who he frequently plays football and watches movies with.
