Characteristics to Develop

Sorry, no pictures of the kids this week, just mommy musings. Each of my children inspire me and exemplify for me characteristics of God that we should try to emulate.

Grant is obedient, and likes to keep me (and everyone) on the strait and narrow.

Sadie exemplifies charity. She shares the love of Christ with everyone around her.

Henry's determination is admirable. I love to watch him try to crawl. He never gives up. We call him the butterfly crawler.

I'm gonna go eat worms ...

While visiting downtown Boalsburg, Nathaniel managed to convince Grant to try a box of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. I'm not sure Grant grasped the meaning of every flavor. He unknowingly popped an earthworm-flavored bean in his mouth and I happened to capture his reaction on camera. Priceless.

... And speaking of worms, Henry crawls like a worm. I don't have a picture of my little monster crawling like a worm, but I did capture these gems. I love that smiley kid.

... And speaking of eating worms. This week started out as one of those kick-you-when-your-down weeks. On Tuesday, after an overwhelming day, I came home to a malfunctioning toilet, water-logged carpet, and bulging basement ceiling. It wasn't one of life's finest moments and I was once again reminded to count my blessings. Good thing I have these two angels to help me keep life in perspective.
