This and That

Somedays, I feel like all of my posts are so forlorn. My apologies on that part. An update on are challenges from last week: Brett will not need surgery, after antibiotics the boys are well, God has provided food and necessities through the body of Christ, and I am not beating myself up about having lost my purse to a thief. Still praying for the return of my favorite owl bag/purse and my camera.

Another area of importance, for the last two days I have declared that I forgive the person who took my bag. Furthermore, I pray that they know the Lord and if there are challenges in this person's life that they can be blessed somehow. If it is a young person, I have prayed that this act not determine his or her future that this be broken and no other strings of crime follow. I pray that for whomever it may be. I can tell more later, but for now I think I'll just ramble about this and that.

What do you want to be when you grow up, is a question that I've often asked T-bird with a usual response of, "I don't want to grow up. I just want to be a kid." My little Peter Pan. This all changed last week when Tristan saw a Jeff Corwin show. He asked if he could help Jeff when he grew up. He laughed the entire episode. If you don't know who Jeff Corwin is, I'll sum him up like this, ADD + animals= Jeff Corwin. So, no wonder Tristan thinks he is so great.

And now Tristan has taken to being stealthy. Well, he's always stealthy, it's just increased recently. Two days ago he informed my that he is going to be a super spy when he grows up. Far cry from Jeff Corwin's helper. And then there's today when the boys are watching a Mickey Mouse Christmas show, and T says he wants to work at a Christmas tree lot when he grows up, but only if Pluto can help him. What? Random little boy.

Which links in to the fact that Tristan thinks that cartoons are real. A couple of examples, he almost busted his head open in a furniture store because he was trying to do a flip like Sonic the Hedgehog. T asked why Sonic can do it but he can't. He asked his dad to drive with his feet like Shaggy does sometimes in the Scooby Doo cartoons. We've told Tristan that cartoons are not real, to which he replies under his breath, "Yes, they are." I just pray protection around my little boy. He'll figure it out soon enough.

Recently, we were able to watch Meet the Robinsons. Great movie! There is a slightly scary part for little ones, but our family loves it. Maybe we love it because the humor is so random! We are lovers of random.

More random, homeschooling is going well. I feel good overall about Tristan's education. I think he is also feeling about it.

Enough of the this and that for now.
