The Best Thing I've Heard All Week

     A brilliant friend of mine (Hi Amy) called her new boyfriend a 'gentleman savage' on Facebook this week, and it struck a chord ...

In Other News...

The backflip boys

...At the MeYeR house this week, it was quite dull and lovely! The boys cooperated at school, Dan was working and the car didn't break down (thank you Jesus!) and we are getting into a nice routine again after the addition of the Starnes'. After much prayer, deliberation and looking over of the books, we have decided to stay at this house for a while longer. We'd rather wait and make the move comfortably than rushing and ending up strapped for money at the new place. Dan brought home monkey bars from the school he is working at right now and they go straight into the trampoline, so the boys can swing right in now...Karen was horrified. He also brought home an overhead projector, reams of printer paper and hundreds of dollars worth of books, CD-roms and curriculum that the school was throwing away....it was Christmas in October for Jodi and I! The funny Derek story of the week is 3 times this week I noticed that he was going commando andter I KNOW I helped him put on undies in the AM...so I finally asked him what happended to his undies and he replied (with a straight face)..."Well, them just hopped away from me, Mama." I about died! Too funny! Anywho...enough chatter, bring out the pics, right? In my fave group on cafemom this week, we had a "what's going on in your house right now picture' game...and these are the shots that I took..Ta Da!

More jumping boys

I was boiling eggs for our weekly picnic and bottle nipples for Titus after Derek found the scissors and chopped up all of the other nipples...oops!Kelly say that this looks like Titus is worshiping A. A Milne...nah, just thankful that he's in the seat and not being trampled by dogs or boys.

Shadow is waiting patiently to be let out...againJames is headed out to jump with the others...he will let Shadow out!

That's it...that's all she wrote...farewell, adieu, ciao and all that other goodby stuff!


Happy Birthday Bro. John!

Right now I wish I was in IL with all of you at Bro John's 60th birthday party. I've been trying to formulate a letter to have put in his scrapbook, but the words fail me...and we all know how often that happens! How do you say thank you to a man that has been such a huge influence in your life? How do you find the words to tell him how you feel about the impact he has made? John Hover has been a rock in my life for over 16 years now. He's been my pastor, a mentor, a confidante, a big brother, a father, a marriage counsellor and most of all a friend to me. I've been best friends with his daughter(s), thought about marrying his son, worked for him, with him and around him. He has taken me places, helped me accomplish things I didn't know I could do, given me responsibility I didn't know I could handle and then praised me when I did well. He's laughed at me, near me and with me. He's scolded, harangued and harassed me when my attitude was out of line. Remember that he's know me since I was 18...I've grown up a bit since then, I hope! He has brought me into his family as a full fledged daughter, even thought we all laugh and say that I must be the milkman's daughter since I was born while he was in jail. Anyway, I suppose suffice it to say that I adore him and wish him the happiest birthday ever and may this year be his best yet. Bro John, I love you!
Your littlest one,

So Many Things to Tell, So Little Time

OK, just dashing through...I know...again! But, 'Puter is acting all funky again and I'm making hay while the sun shines....need to get this posted before this stupid thing decides to quit again for a week. We are well here...David enjoyed his birthday and the party, the boys went to homeschool gym for the first time and LOVED it, we enjoyed a fantastic day in the great out of doors on Saturday at the local pumpkin patch and it occurred to me that we've now been here long enough to be going to the same things we did last year at this time. It made me feel a bit nostalgic for home and then I reminded myself that this IS home! Some times it feels like a long vacation, or a break for reality or an alternate life, but this is my life now and with a full year here under our belts, it's new chapter beginning with Jodi's arrival. We are still house hunting...we've found a house we really like, but are still praying about it and discussing it amongst ourselves. As for pictures, sorry, none this week either, but once 'Puter is up and running properly again, I promise LOTS of pics from the past month. Well, I better scoot before this wretched things poops out again. Much love to you all. Lost Boys, Mama K misses you and wishes you were here with me!
Kristy and the Man Crew
