Out of the mouths

The children participants in our children's message are usually 4th graders with my Flash (5). Last Sunday it was just Flash and another 5 yr old.
But the person doing the lesson didn't adjust...and ended up asking these two
"What does "eternal" mean?"
Flash raised his hand and said that "it means sleeping during the day and waking up at night".

The lady doing the lesson said that no, it meant living forever...and went on from there.
But I could see my son's mind click off.
He gave the right answer and she doesn't know what she's talking about
...funny to watch.

Meanwhile Cosy is not fond of applesauce. She tastes it makes a face and then opens her mouth again as if the next bite may be good. Maybe she likes the novelty...but we're giving up on applesauce for a while. Hate to watch that little face wrinkle up.

almost a month later...

When we last saw our hero...
I am hoping that the end of school will allow me to start paying more attention to the blog.
The kids are out on Wednesday and I'm in until the following Thursday. School is coming to an end here in corn country. Then begins a summer of kid chasing I guess.

My mom was here for a week ( a week in which she managed to miss BOTH church services...and hubby is miffed. She also tried to give him advice on how to attract people to the church...when she hasn't attended church for 30+ years. There's lots of tension there, not just because of church but...) She got a lot of things done around the house though. I wish I could get as much done in a week as she does. She's a great gardener too.

Reading the latest Percy Jackson novel. Cosy started eating cereal today and she liked the spoon more than the food! Flash has been very...moody. I don't know whats going on with him at all.

and I'm craving pie.

Monday monday

Very tired. the weekend was very taxing on the family. 4 congregation members have died in the past week. Funerals, visitations, and community events and meetings plus church and poor pastor-hubby's birthday. He seems to be handling it all but I am fried. Just not enough sleep and things at the house are overly messy. My garage sale is this coming weekend and I don't think I'll have any help at all. We are swapping nights all over the place this week. He's out tonight, I'm out tomorrow night, then we're splitting Wednesday. Meeting for him Thursday and on and on.

I'm also trying to figure out who will take care of Flash and Cosy on June 4. Its my last day at school and they've scheduled an all-day training so I can't bring the baby. Daycare is over on the 3rd for both kids and Hubby has COM an hour away. We don't have family anywhere nearby and we hesitate to use church members for the most part. Can you imagine having an older church member stay at your house with your kids all day?? Too intrusive. I'd worry all day, and this after I spent the prior few days cleaning the house more than I would for my own father!

Still having problems with church as you can tell, I guess. Got all emotional last night about it. I am getting ready for my biyearly "worship-somewhere-else"...if I have the nerve to do it. Or maybe I'll wimp out and enjoy worship when we go on vacation in a month and a half.
