What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

E-thew




Yesterday, the littles got a wee bit infatuated with the fact that 'big kids lose teeth out of their heads'. 

Andrew very patiently let them investigate in his mouth at his chompers- the big ones, the little ones and the wobbly ones. 

Good brother.

Speaking of Andrew~ last night they were playing doctor and all the children were diseased or ailing in some way until Nurse Corynn came to the rescue.  As she cared for the broken nose of Judah and the plucked out eye and sore foot of Adele' (all imaginary, but no less painful), I heard Andrew pipe up...

"Corynn.  Pretend that I am a really old farmer and I am so sick because I have been smelling  manure for years and years."  

Everything in his life has to do with cows.  And I mean EVERYTHING.

*sigh*

I love watching brothers and sisters interacting with each other like that. The young ones in awe of the amazing older ones :-)

That is too funny about the manure. I love reading about the kids. Life is so fascinating at that age. And cows are very important. I love their meat!!!
