Some Funnies

Today we went on an adventure to explore a lake area that is just south of where we live.  We had a great time and discovered a wonderful get-away less than 30 minutes from our home.  We'll definitely be making regular trips out there to relax for the day.

In the midst of this discovery, we came across a few funnies.  See anything wrong with this sign?

And what about this?  This is my idea of "roughing it!"

This may be a very typical sight at campsites in this day and age, but we still thought is was funny to see a mounted satellite dish in the midst of what we consider "the wilderness."

And finally, more words of wisdom from our four-year-old...

We do lots of reading with our school curriculum, and many of the books really stretch the vocabulary of both of the kids, but especially Hannah.  As a result, if you were a fly on the wall, you would hear "what's that mean?" many times throughout each day.  Well, as we were exploring at the lake, Benjamin spotted a plastic cup that had been thrown into the lake and asked me why someone would do that.  I answered that I guess they were just not being responsible.  Hannah piped up and said, "I know what responsible means!  It's the spanish word for "not very nice!"

Oh my goodness!  We seldomly have a shortage of laughs around here!

Out of the Mouths of Babes

I've been busy today, preparing to leave early tomorrow morning to drive to San Antonio for the funeral of my aunt.  As we were getting the kids ready for bed, I was also telling them goodbye since I will be leaving before they get up in the morning.  That brought out many questions from them about what a funeral was like, and what happens when someone dies, and the like.  By the end of the conversation, I was very teary.  Off Hannah (our four year old) went, and in a minute she was back, with her Bible in tow.  She held it up to me, pointing to the words, as if reading them herself, and said, "Mommy, listen to what the Bible says.  It says, 'Trust God.  If your mommy's aunt dies, believe in God because he will take care of everything.'  See, Mommy.  That's just what my Bible says."

Precious.

Priceless.

Thank you, God, that my babies are "getting it."
