"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Our little monkeys

I'm always so on the go and forget about these fast food play places.
After being in the hospital for a week and having to stay indoors until Trevor had his followup visit witht the Dr. (Which was today) The kids and especially me were so anxious to get out of the house. I had a lost of running around to do and my mother in law offered to be my taxi driver so that I didn't have to pull the kids out and put them back everywhere I went. By the end of the day we stopped at Mc Donald's and ate and the kids played for a good hour in the play place. I need to remember to about this place if I ever just need a break or need to get out. The kids are so entertained that I can just sit by myself and relax. Thanks Ronald!

Aren't the play places so much cooler now than they were when we were kids?

Remember the thing where you can sit in a circle and then every one turned the thing in the middle to make you spin? I threw up on that one everytime!

I love seeing your kids grow. Isn't it so stinkin' crazy how fast it goes. I seriously can't wait till they are in school-is that bad?...I'm glad to see Trevor's feeling better.
