Today ... kind-of a regular day ... schoolwork and snowboarding ( it was "warm"!) ... laundry and dishes ... squabbles and sweetness ... trusty diapers and a leaky one too ... sickness and health ... goodness and sin ... things lost and things found ... trials and what's the opposite of trials??? smooth sailing???
I recall our current pastor saying a while back, "Life is a series of problems ... or trials." It seems like a rather negative outlook ... yet it is basically true, I guess. You wake up in the morning and your problem is hunger. Then you solve that by eating. Next, your trial is pajamas, bedhead, and morning mouth. You combat these with clothing, combs, and Colgate ~ I prefer Crest, but Colgate sounded better. This is one of those blogs where I'm not really sure where I'm heading ... can you tell???
The girls had some fun sister time ... painting each others' nails :) They even made "receipts" for their salon experience! This was Foofie's first experience of wielding the brush ... tres exciting for her!
Also today ... Buddy was thinking that being a policeman would not only be fun or whatever he imagines it to be ... but that it would also be lucrative because "all of the speeders would have to send their fines to you". His hopes were quickly dashed however, when we informed him it doesn't work that way.
And tonight, we were reading Matthew out loud ... part of the reading was about Joseph wanting to divorce his wife he found out she was with child. "Why?" questioned Halo. "Well, he didn't know that the baby was from God yet," I explained. "But still ... you think he'd be happy with any old baby. He seems ungrateful," Halo commented.
