"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

oh, to be young again

Old picture....same cute kids!


The little ones are so stinkin' cute this morning. Last night after they went to bed, I gathered all the suitcases and bags out of the garage to start packing today.

At the sight of them this morning, it hit them that we really were going on a trip!

Right now, they are all sporting their backpacks, filled to almost bursting with any and every piece of junk treasure they could find and are walking around saying to each other, "Hurry! The plane is leaving!" or "Do you have your tickets?" and Anna Gracie even picked up her play phone and called Alex. He apparently was "not there" so she left him a message. The message? "Alex, we gonah leeve soon. Be ready foh us, kay?"

I think it's gonna be a long couple of days for the three little munchkins as they wait. It may be even longer for their Mama as she is the one that has to answer, for the trillionth time, "No, we're not leaving today!"
