Giving Thanks (inspired by)


Thanks be to God, Father, Son and Spirit, for the abundance of good things he pours on His children.
We are but few, but His blessings are many.

It's "put your preschoolers to work" day :)

We are getting ready to host a big sleepover tomorrow night.

Though the sleepover is not for them, these little boys have work to do to help me get ready.
Today, I made them scrub the wrestling mats.


See how hard they work!


Peter, the sprayer-offer :)


Let's be honest.
This didn't feel like work at all!

Car and Tractor Show

Today we went to a car & tractor show!

It was at "Marcus's school."  He was so proud to be our host at his school.  
He even told us all where the bathrooms were.


My sprout :)









A model T!  

Thanks, St. Peter's, for the fun afternoon!

Well, well, well!

Last week, our church family gave us a much-needed gift:

A new well!
And on top of that: A WEEK of trucks and manly stuff happening in our yard!


The treehouse was the perfect place to watch the digging.



Beautiful!
Water aplenty!

Next, connecting it to the house:


The men were not only hard-working,
but they were patient with little boy questions!







Nobody fell in!
Hooray!



Boys thought this was the coolest video ever! :)


Abundant water,
and abundant blessings from our church family!
Thank you God!

Back to School!

Ready to go!
We made it through our lists in plenty of time today!
I'm sure the excitement helped.
Wednesday will be another story.

Aggie and Oliver


Marcus
Not going to school
but bringing his backpack full of trucks for the boys while we pick blackberries



Note the bunny-ears: 

"Me too" says Peter!






They look so much bigger!


For prayers and sappy reflections check out my other blog

And then I get to stay home with these guys:


What a fun new game.
So glad I caught them this time before they turned on the water!



Happy new school year!

Church picnic anticipation!

We get to see the tractors lining up for the church picnic! 
We had to go over and see them this morning.
The boys are in heaven!


Peter says "Tract-y! Tract-y!"


Aggie taking a break :)


Love this photobomb!
Way to go Marcus!
