Every once in a while...


Every once in a while as a parent you feel like you might be doing something right. This feeling happens rarely these days at our house so when it did I had to capture it on camera. As I was cleaning up the kids asked if they could help. Being the control freak that I am I usually say no. However how are they ever going to learn if I do not say yes and on top of that the Spirit struck and I realized they wanted to feel needed. So I gave them some jobs. Ellie is asking me if she can vacuum the ants off our counter tops... Love it..


Ansley Mills was tasked with scrubbing down our table while Addis was given a towel to dry it off.

No Ellie did not just come back from dance class... This was her "work" outfit.

Again the table team hard at work. Now the day before this and the day after nothing brilliant happened. However on this day (thanks for digital we didn't have to wait for proof of life) something worked. I dare say it will be repeated anytime soon or that I produced this great fruit in my children. But I will let the world know or at least those that read this... that on that day the Spirit moved in this house! Praise God...
And the reason for all the.... is our coma key has officially died.... not that i am good at punctuation to begin with.
