Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

A Day

We have a new pet, well 4 new! They are a little hard to spot in the picture, but they are small silver fish. After we've had them for a few weeks we will go get a few more, hopefully more colorful. I would like one of those little frogs, too, but they always seem to die. We'll see.
Cadence and Finn enjoy watching them, for little spurts, anyway.
Yesterday, and today actually, we had a dress-up tornado sweep through our house! Cadence likes to change in and out of costumes all day long. It exhausts me just watching her. My natural instinct wants her to clean the disaster area up, but I restrain myself. They are easy to clean up at the end of the day, and it is important for her to have that imaginative play. I just wish she could be imaginative in a tidy way.:)
This is Cadence as Wonder Girl and Pom Pom Girl (she made the names herself. What do you think, PomPom?).
I love these frequent squirrely visitors! I love watching them scamper up and down the trees. Most days, 3 or 4 of them will play tag (or other activities, which Brad witnessed with Finn. He told him they were just playing) in the trees. So fun! I left nuts out for them on our deck one day, but they snuck them away when I wasn't looking. Sneaky little critters. They make me think of "Sword in the Stone", when Merlin and Wart turn into squirrels and the pretty squirrel chases Wart all around while the fat lady squirrel chases Merlin. Great movie!
Here is my Strawberry Shortcake doll from when I was kid. I gave her to Cadence. She still smells like strawberries! Speaking of smells, I am baking Banana Bread right now for the College Bible Study tonight and it smells soooooo good.


  1. I love Cadence the Pom Pom girl! You're so smart to let the kids make big imaginative messes. That's why they're so smart and happy!

  2. Love it! What a marvelous summary of the days. We are so incredibly blessed. I love you so very much.
