What they said this past week:
Zae: Everything takes at least an hour in this family! (In response to the mention that an upcoming activity would probably take about an hour.)
Zeke: Mom, thanks for starving me! I think it really worked and I learned a lot! (After being sent to bed without dinner twice in one week for not following through with responsibilities.)
Eli: He's wordy... kinda like you, Mom. (Upon the third day of reading through the Book of Luke, a chapter at a time, as a family -- and realizing how loooong Luke's chapters are.)
Israel: When I was a baby, I never knew I could have a great mom like you. (This, after receiving a discipline for disrespect. Hey! At this rate, I might have this parenting thing down by the time I'm a grandma!)
Ever grateful for His endless grace!
