Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

About the Friesen's....

Last year (as in, the last school year), I watched Oliver & Lily 1-2 mornings per week....This year, Oliver grew up and went off to preschool; however, Lily still comes over some.

This past Friday (April 8), I had the privilege of having both Oliver & Lily at my house (I've missed Oliver's conversations this year)....

So, I captured a photo of Luke, Oliver, and Lily at our kitchen table (photo was taken on my phone)....having their juice and snacks. Sorry -- Oliver's back is toward the camera.

Oliver's always been a good, healthy eater. Last year, nearly every single time he came to our house, he brought his oatmeal for breakfast, and I secretly thought it was VERY CUTE.

So, I was secretly hoping he'd bring his oatmeal to our house this past Friday.

He didn't. He told me he had already eaten it.

I told Marc that Oliver didn't bring his oatmeal.

Marc then texted me a photo of his "oatmeal."

For those of you who know Marc well -- this photo is GREAT for him....Marc's healthy "oatmeal" is Pepsi and potato chips at his desk at work.

yumm!! BBQ chips look yummy!! We are having breakfast for dinner tonight. I was gone over the weekend so I am behind on meal planning this week.

Mary Ellen has eaten creme puffs for breakfast when we've gone out! By the way, you may know that we are babysitting the kids while Adam and Jill are in Chicago. Hannah came home from school at noon and threw up twice so I need to stay home tomorrow. She seems fine this evening but school has a 24 hour throw up policy. Sophie and I made pumpkin/pecan muffins this morning and Sarah W came to get them and the DVD's. Sorry I can't be there!

I guess when you are a "runnin' machine" like Marc you can eat whatever you want. So not fair!
