So, Joel came up to me today and told me he was exhausted. Yes, his word. I'm sure he is after waking several times through the night, but it came as a surprise that he knew the word. He makes me giggle.
Cate and Joel were creating masterpieces last night. I plan on getting huge canvases for them soon, so they can provide the artwork for our family room. They have such colorful imaginations. There is always a new catastrophe to overcome- some flood waters rushing through the walls, a dinosaur coming to eat them, a leaky ship...their answer is always to put on their rainboots, grab a flashlight and charge! There are quieter games- mostly Joel gets stuck being the dad opposite Cate's bossy mom- she always seems to display my less finer moments. I think God does that to remind us of where we are and who we should become.
