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.

Loco for Locomotives!

For about a month now, every time we would pull into the garage Finn would see this Thomas the Train set we got from Joe and Martina and ask to play with it. I kept putting off taking it out because I knew that Aria would just knock it down and he would get mad...drama, drama, drama. Well, yesterday, I caved and set it up while Aria was napping. I have to admit, I quite enjoyed connecting all his pieces and making our very own "Island of Sodor". Once Aria awoke, we had the expected drama, but we are dealing with it.

Finn loves to carry this cardboard background around (in the above picture). He lays it down and points out and names all the trains he has and those that he doesn't. He has made it quite clear that he doesn't have James or Gordon. I wonder if he's hinting at something?

To combat The Monster of Sodor, aka Aria, we decided to set our island up outside on the deck (thank you Lord for the beautiful weather), so that when the slumbering giant wakes this time, she won't be able to destroy it. Bonus = I don't have to keep setting it up every 10 minutes!


  1. Fun! Your cherubs remind me of Brad and Kelli, running around barefooted, hair scrambled. Finn's so smart! Aria is strong! Send her down here so I can smooch her please.

  2. Great idea! So cute. You are simply amazing!
