Now, for the not so fun part. While Daddy is away, the kids will fight. So, they ended up writing "I will not argue with my brother/sister." 10-15 times each. I understand they get bored, but I can't and won't always entertain them. Justin is good about trying his best to come up with things to do. Keturah needs a little more direction. She also threw a stomping fit today and had to go to bed early. Yes, I like to keep our blog upbeat and cheerful, but I think it's also important to paint in accurate picture of our life, and that includes these ugly parts. Tomorrow is a new day and we have some tasks to take care of. If they get done, then perhaps I will take them to a pool. We'll see.
Very few pictures were taken today, but here goes.
|We went to Meijer before our meeting, and I actually found the exact same kind! FYI, I'm doing a "paleo" kind of diet with no sugar and no grain. So far so good, except for the headaches. We'll get there.|
|And a little treat for myself. Definitely a treat to use sparingly since it still gave me a stomachache although there's no aspartame in it.|
|Ok, and another treat. Actually I got a few bags. But they live in the fridge, and I'm lazy and won't get up to retrieve them often.|
|Writing out her "I will not argue" statements.|
|Meanwhile, Abishai got to have a cookie. Actually, the other two did have treats too.|
|Don't take a picture of me writing this!|
|Some more goodies to work with! Yes, that's peanut butter POWDER. Cool, eh? You add it to recipes like muffins and you can put it in smoothies. Yum!|
|HSG! That's the name of our group and we got these nice binders! Reminds me of our days from MOPS when we had a binder while we were in leadership. Lots of forms and schedules and policies and such.|
|Abishai is always into hugging and wrestling. He's very sweet.|
|Play with me big brother!|
|Oh those cheeks! Shirt says, "Grandpa thinks I'm a keeper." I think it was Benaiah's.|
|Yes, yes, this kid, that smile, I know, I know. I can't help but share it!|
