"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."

Trevor is finally 18 months and can go to the nursery. I have been waiting for this day. Hollie is still a cling on to me at church and will not stay in her class by herself. But Trevor ran in there and didn't look back. He did so good. This is his first picture!
Hollie is now in Sunbeams and I went to primary today! It was a little different enviroment than the nursery and I actually loved to sit in sharing time and sing songs. A couple I didn't know but Hollie got to pick to sing the popcorn song. Hopefully she gets used to primary and will stay so I can have a couple hours ALONE!

That is such a happy day!! Luke did great at first in nursery, but in December he doesn't like staying in there without us. It's like a delayed separation anxiety reaction?...I'm excited for you to maybe go to classes now.
