A New Running Buddy

If you run, you know that finding a good running partner is a very important step.  Melayna found her new running buddy down at the park the other day, although I have a feeling that they won't be running very far!
 
 
Do you get the feeling that they aren't moving very fast?!

 
These girls are just silly, that's all there is to it!!

Sweet Words from an Adoring Brother

Oh my heart!!!  As the girls jumped out of the van at school this morning, Nolan waved to them and said "wuh-you".  (Translated:  Love you).  
To say that he adores his sisters is probably a HUGE understatement!!

Words of Praise

"Thank God! Pray to him by name! Tell everyone you meet what He has done! Sing him songs, belt out hymns, translate his wonders into music! Honor his name with Hallelujahs, ye who seek God. Live a happy life! Keep your eyes open for God, watch for his works; always be aware of his presence!"

A Weekend Full of Challenges

Our entire weekend was full of challenges.
 
 Thankfully, except for a few small ones that we resolved quickly, the majority of the challenges were actually fun and refreshing.  In addition to kicking off our own challenge (the Rice Challenge for Feed My Starving Children), our family was also challenged numerous times last week to take another challenge for a good cause.  (You just may have heard of this little one...the Ice Bucket Challenge.  You cannot escape watching others dunk ice water on their heads if you use Facebook at all, can you?)  Not wanting to disappoint, we willingly played along.  And the fact that it was hot and humid last week certainly helped...
 
Noel took the challenge earlier in the week.  We recorded it and uploaded it to facebook, but I didn't get a copy saved to post here.  I was able to upload the videos of myself and the two older girls taking the challenge though.  Great laughs for sure!!

Our Rice Challenge

We kicked off the Rice Challenge in our home this week.  As the video says, our community is raising $220,000 to pack 1,000,000 meals for Feed My Starving Children.  There will be time to volunteer to pack in the future, but right now, our biggest need is money.
 

 
If you would like to donate (22 cents will give one meal to malnourished child), please visit www.warsawmobilepack.com.

Today's Laugh ~ It Wasn't My Kid For Once...

So, I had to laugh when I was in the check-out lane at the grocery today. A woman with twin boys was behind me and the boys were pushing each other. Apparently twin #1 was causing the most trouble so the Mom looked at him and said "Do you want a spanking?" Immediately twin #2 blurted out, "yes, he does"!
