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.

exciting things are happening in the gross department

So....tell me this...at church, I'm sure it's not incredibly uncommon to hear about trumpets blasting sounding the coming of something spectacular....or to hear about being cleansed...or purging yourself of the dirt inside of you....think i'm getting deep? well, we heard all of these things, in some form, at church Sunday.   As I walked into Sunday School, Ridge, with his nice full belly, sat down on my lap, and just when it got quiet, BLASTED out a sound, but what was coming was NOT spectacular....he definitely purged himself so much he had to be cleansed.  It was an awakening experience for us all.  Completely embarassing, as well, I might add.  But he isn't the king of the land of the gross. His brother conquered THAT territory this morning.  We took Ridge to the dr...i needed to be reassured of some things being "normal."....anyway, while we waited (forever), Sawyer became uber-independent and HAD to get a drink of water w/o brandon even standing NEAR him.  When he was finished, Brandon said, "You did it by yourself. Didn't you?" (he was kind of being and instigator here, you know, b/c Sawyer had been so bratty about not wanting any assistance)...then Brandon added, "You have water on your face."  So, Sawyer does something totally unexpected.  Even as it is happening, I am not putting the pieces together. I keep wondering "What is he doing?"...he lays down, on his stomach, on the waiting room carpet right in front of the check in window....and then....of course this all happens in a split second and i am thinking, "man, he's so weird ,why is he laying down?".... and then and then and then...he wipes his mouth...ON THE CARPET!  of course this is the exact spot where every person who has entered that office has stood to check in.  dis.gus.ting.  i'm sure he will come down with some disgusting disease soon.  so if you want to congratulate me on having some gross kids, feel free to do so.

Congrats??..I guess...That is too funny! Sawyer cracks me up! I'm so glad we got to see y'all yesterday! I'm sad it might be the last time :( Dylan told Dustin all about 'bouncing' when we got home! He loved that trampoline!!

That's so funny. Sawyer is a hoot. I'm sure it is just one of many gross stories we'll have to tell.
