Fibs, mohawks, and 7X7

Today I was reading "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to the kids....I know this will be shocking news for all of you, but Aidan has a hard time....ummm....staying "with us" when we are doing read alouds. Believe me, he does try really hard....but nope, it's just not gonna happen! So usually as I read, I stop here and there and ask him questions just to make it easier for him to hang on......

Today's Chapter was titled "Mr. Greenbaum".....who was he? We had no idea....he was new to our story and I was about to tell them.

Me: "Mr. Greenbaum had come to town and he was the owner of the Palace theatre and many other theatres in the country"

Me again: "Aidan, who was Mr. Greenbaum?"

Aidan: "Ummmm...He's green!?"

Me: <laughing hysterically internally....his face that of a kid that thinks he certainly is clever>

Aidan: <embelishing in his web of fibbery>..."He's green, and he has a mohawk!?"

"Lord thank you so much for the laughter that fills my house....thank you for the smiles that I too often take for granted....thank you for the precious individual hearts you have given each of my children...."

There is a wonderful precious lady named Angie....a lady that has ministered to me so many times through the unbearable loss of her daughter Audrey.... and through her faithfulness to her Father...who gives and takes away. She is simply a precious precious heart....and her blog is just plain old wonderful to read....and she has once again blessed me with her post that is a reminder of how powerful prayer is, and the importance of praying over our children.....check her out...

"And whatever I do, may it always bring glory to you"
