After swimming lessons we came home and the kids ate lunch and had nap and room time. When they got up ben and mill helped me make some zucchini bread. Between the Hamiltons and Rehoboth Ranch I have a ton of fruits and veggies so i have been wanting to try this recipe for a while. They each got to make a loaf and it turned out really good. (I have some pictures but mike has our sd card reader so i will load them sunday.)
We played outside for a while and i helped ben water the plants on the front porch....it's one of his chores:)
John Campbell is into everything these days! He loves to crawl all over the house and getting into everything! It's pretty hilarious because you cannot turn your back for one second. There is no telling how many finger sweeps i've done making sure he didn't put something in his mouth.
Something cute ben said the other day.... he went with me to pick up our produce from rehoboth and while we were loading up our stuff i was telling him what each vegetable was. On the way home he was trying to remember what all we had gotten and he said "...and we got peppermints...".....instead of bell pepper.....so cute!
Something else going on in our family....for a while now mike and i have talked about as followers of Christ if we REALLY believed what we say we do wouldn't we live differently? When a person first becomes a Christian they seem to have this period- usually if they are a little older when they believe- where they are "on fire", so passionate to change the world for God's kingdom......and we appreciate their zeal but we "know" that their radical talk and lifestyle will eventually diminish and they will start to settle down and live the...and i hate to say it....average american Christian life. Why is that? How is it if our treasure is in heaven we are SO quick to become obsessed with the temporal? If the road is narrow and the way is few and i look around me and everybody looks like me and acts likes me and spends their money like me....am i really on the narrow road?
