an early morning with children

newborns bring many a early morning. My middle daughter was up today too at 5:30 a.m. I she heard the baby crying and Kenzie wants to be where the action is, I don’t blame her, she comes by that honestly. Kenzie and Miley both finally crashed, mommy went back to bed and daddy is blogging checking e-mail, blogging and drinking coffee.


Last night’s youth group meeting didn’t go so well. I still after 4 years don’t know how to keep some disinterested souls engaged and interested. It is a little frustrating really to have week after week a few good kids, doing their own thing. I have tried to spend one on one time with each of these kiddos, and well they are great one on one, but in a small group of like minded peers and they are disinterested team. Argh!


Last night at church on my friends, a dear brother in Christ knocked over my tea cup which proceeded to drench my pants right before our designated starting time, so I walked into our main building with a huge wet spot on my crotch and endured stares and questions about my current wetness. My answer was, “I had an accident, I teaed on myself.” Sometimes church is just too fun!
