As of Late.....

.....we've been getting ready for school to start in a few days. It's hard to believe that the summer is almost over!

.....Shana has been busy running with the cross-country team.

.....we've been seeing lots of little Ethiopian soccer players:

.....I asked the twins what they want to be when they grow up. Jordan quickly answered, "Sixteen!" And Jalen responded, "I want to be forty!" We have high ambitions around here, folks. of my children was singing that old song, "The Best of Friends" from The Fox and the Hound. Except that I had never heard it sung quite like this:
"When you're the best of friends
Having so much fun together,
You're not even aware
You're in your underwear,
'Cause you're the best of friends."

Yep. We like to keep it classy around here.

.....we've been enjoying last-minute summer kinds of things:

.....the twins have been loving the little green frogs that they've been spotting outside. Jordan checks the side of our garage (where one of them likes to hang out) nightly for "his froggy," whom he has affectionately named Pipsqueak.

.....the kids were discussing why men in the Bible had long hair. "They didn't have hair-cutters back then," said Ashton. Malia's response? "Well, they could have used a chainsaw!" Ouch. And like that was invented yet.

.....I've been making red raspberry jam:

.....Malia was playing house with her kids, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Not sure why she didn't choose to call them Ruth, Malachi, John, or Peter instead.....

.....We've been attending lots of meetings for various projects that we are or will be involved in. Stay tuned for more information about our Hope For Haiti sale that will be held locally this fall!

And that's all for now, folks! Have a great weekend!
