With God's Help...

A month or so ago during junior church, my boys learned about Jacob's ladder.

Their activity/craft that day was to make construction paper ladders.

The sideof the ladder read: "With God's help, I can." The rungs of the ladder the boys were to fill in on their own.

Caden's said "play."  Caden shares what he lives to do. He always wants to play. Very insightful to include God in his daily activity.

Caleb's said "go to heaven." Caleb is people pleaser. He's also looks at the big picture. Which sometimes even I fail to do. Caleb even glued a cotton ball to his ladder and told me it was a cloud like in heaven

My heart swells with pride for them. I'm so glad we found a church in our town that feels like home. The boys love it and are learning from it. We've growing in our faith together as a family and that fills my heart with joy.

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

Happy Easter!

Meet Me On Monday

Thanks to Goldylocks for posting, I'm linking up over at Never Grow Old for this week's Meet Me On Monday!

1. Caesar Salad or Garden Salad?
Garden salad.  I'm a big salad eater.  I like my veggies!
2. Will you be watching the Royal Wedding on April 29th?
No.  We do not have TV, and I'm really not that excited about it.  I'll probably read about it online later. 
3. Last thing you spent lots of money on? 
Walt Disney World vacation.  We'll be there in less than 2 weeks!
4. Window seat or aisle seat?
Window.  I like having something to lean on.  I certainly don't want that middle seat!
5. Do you know your blood type?
No.  No clue.

We finally had a bit of a break in the weather.  It was still cloudy and overcast, but it was warm enough to be outside for awhile after dinner.  Keith and I took the kids and the dog outside. 

While the boys were playing in the yard, Caleb made a discovery. 

He's walking along the edge of our yard near our neighbors yard when he turns to me and says, "Mommy, I know how to tell what's the neighbor's yard and our yard!" 

Me: "Oh yeah honey? How's that?"

Caleb says "look mommy! Their grass is dark green and ours is just light green and yellow."

That 4 year old of mine, so insightful. 

Our neighbor is meticulous about his yard and garden.  He mows weekly with a push mower and a riding mower and has it treated regularly.  Or yard, while we're lucky if we can grow grass.  Our lawn is patchy and pathetic.  Sadly even though even our 4 year old notices how terrible our lawn is, I wouldn't expect anything to change anytime soon!
