Say a Prayer


Please forgive me for my ramblings about our babies, but this summer, my life has been full of those babies, one or more of them every day. After school starts, I'm going to take my camera and run away for a few hours to just wander.

Maybe, if I have any energy left by then.

Yesterday was hectic, the kids fought, they wrestled, they argued, they chased, and romped, and ate everything that didn't eat them first. They did all this indoors. I'd have put them outside to run around and get rid of all that energy but it's been too hot to breath out there and kids know nothing about heat exhaustion, they just go on, and on, and on.

Jerri, Alexis, and Beans came by after Alexis' kindergarten registration so it got really wild here then cause they all love to play together, all at once.

Jami came in from work and after a little visiting, she gathered her chicks to go home, but before they walked out the door I said, "When you girls are saying your prayers tonight please ask God to help you to be good tomorrow cause Nanaw needs a break." Jami went out the door shaking her head, "Oh Lord, my roof's going to fall in on my head with all that lying going on during their prayers."

LMAO I told Jami to hide during prayer time. That was sure to be a dangerous house to be in during prayer time. Did it work? Are they being good today so far?

Joni said...

maybe they should be praying for cooler weather so they can play outside....being "good" isn't nearly as much fun...kids will be kids...gotta love 'em...meanwhile you might as well join them so your exhaustion comes earnestly...have a fun day! *wink

Brenda, I just don't know how you do it! I don't think I would have the patience or energy to care for so many kids every day...even if they were my grandchildren! lol I guess it's one reason why we have our children so young!! It's wonderful that they have so much energy and are healthy...but I can just imagine the energy it takes to keep up with them! xoxo
