wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

shaving cream...

today was the official last day of school.  for students. so, i go pick sawyer up at daycare. we go get a snow-cone. we pull into our neighborhood...and i see shreds of white stuff everywhere on the street.  i look ahead, and i see a massive group of middle school (i think) aged children...covered in....shaving cream. we are talking about like...50 adolescents here.  the shaving cream shrapnel continues all the way up my street...as does the parade of white frothy people.  we haven't lived here but 6 months, but i wonder if this is some kind of "ringing in the summer" ritual.  i didn't know whether to be mad or smile, so i smiled, and prayed none of them were up to any mischief....just glad it's summer.


on another note, yesterday brandon and i drove past this side of the road bar or something that used to say BEER in huge letters on top of it...now it says..and repainted quiet well, i might add...DEER.  all around the sides it used to say beer, chicken, cold beer, chicken.  it now says, Deer, Chicken, Old Deer, Chicken.  whatever. who had time to vandal so extensively? and pointlessly?

and some of you are wondering why on earth nothing about my children is posted so far on this blog. first off, give me a break, it's day one. second off, here's a fun fact of ridiculousness, and you already know it if you are family.  sawyer pooped on the porch at Brandon's mom's house.  straight up pooped.  it wasn't an accident in his pants. it was apparently an emergency situation, and only his uncle garret was out there with him  (props to uncle garret on this nasty supervision job)....and apparently, while sawyer had a second alone, nature called quite urgently, he dropped his drawers, and pooped.  right on the porch.  aunt binet' cleaned HIM up, but daddy Brandon had to clean up the poop, and the porch.  nasty. Thank goodness I had a baby to tend to.
