Kids Say the Funniest Things

iKaitlyn and Courtney loving hanging out for the day!

Over the past month, we have heard some funny things around here:

  • Look Mom I have glossy teeth (meaning, I flossed my teeth).
  • Why does that guy have a stick lawnmower? (translation: weedeater)
  • Can't she just cough that baby up? (trying to figure out why a pregnant woman doesn't have her baby already)
  • Thank you Jesus for fortifying us (translation: providing for us)
  • Mom: Jett, do you speak Spanish? Jett: No Mom: Okay, do you speak English? Jett: No Mom: Well, what do you speak? Jett: I speak regular.
  • I think we can adopt 2 or 3 or a hundred million.
And for my friend Nancy who wears a daydress when she gets home, props to you! You made me laugh today.

Earrings for MG!

Madison got her ears pierced last week, and she was thrilled. I told both girls that they could get their ears pierced at the age of 10. With the summer coming up and our pediatrician slated to be out of the office, we decided to go ahead and get this done a few months early.

Madison has already been very diligent in taking care of her ears. She cleans them twice a day without fail. She is very "safety" minded when it comes to the possibility of something going wrong. For those of you who know her, she always listens to the safety instructions on aircraft, reads the pamphlet in the seatback in front of her, looks for exits, etc. So, I'm sure this will go off without a hitch.

On another note our trip to Guatemala is only 2 weeks away. We are eager for our family to serve together with most of our small group. We are also a apprehensive about Jett returning to Guatemala. He seems to shut down when around the Spanish language or Latino people. He becomes very clingy and needy. We have reassured him of his place in our family and loved on him immensely. Please pray that God will use this time to bring Himself glory through all of us!
