"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Tyler learned how to give crusties last week, and with a 103.0 temperature these last few days, he's had plenty of practice perfecting it! At the moment there is a boy for sale to the highest bidder!! :)

Kamrie's been wanting dinner/dessert foods for breakfast (etc..) and has not been wanting to take turns saying prayers. Here are some charts that I made that are really helping.....for the moment at least! :)

Picture time!

I promise to post some of Ryan and I soon! Really! Until then, just imagine a very exhausted Ryan in his scrubs fast asleep on the floor and me wearing sweats, my hair in a pony tail, and carrying a laundry basket! :)
