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 Bible...according to Sawyer

Soo....Father's Day morning we wake up and are getting ready, sort of, for church.  Brandon is reading his Bible in the floor of the bedroom and Sawyer gets a Bible from the bookshelf and lays down beside him (I was not in there, this is all a retelling as I was told by Brandon)....Sawyer starts reading out loud, and Brandon isn't really tuned in, but he does pick up on something about a "bad man"...He thinks Sawyer is saying Jesus is a bad man, so he says, "what is this bad man's name, Sawyer?" and Sawyer says "....Butt."  So he is reading some story in his Bible about a bad man named Butt who takes things from other people or something.  yeah....

he also asks Brandon, this morning, why he is reading a book (Bringing Up Boys, Dobson)....and Brandon says, "so i can be a better daddy."  Sawyer says, "you're already a good daddy" (melt my heart)...then he says, "and so mommy can be a better mommy?" (thanks, kid).  then he says, "and i can be a better boy."  that about covers it.

in other news...i think we may have conquered, at least semi-conquered, our fear of swimming...sawyer had a great time @ the lake last week (wading, not swimming, and definitely NOT getting in the boat- he'd have NONE of that)...but he asked yesterday if we could go swimming today.  So we've got a time all set up to head to the neighbor's...we shall see.  between that and fixing my busted cell and spraying the yard for some weird webworms that are overtaking some ivy AND getting the house sprayed for the scary spiders i keep seeing...it will be a busy day.
