The Mind of a 4-Year-Old

This was just way too funny not to share!  I’m so sorry if you find this in the TMI category.

So for Christmas AJ and Ry got these hot wheels that change colors with cold water.  Well, after trying really, really cold water over and over again without changing colors, Ryan suggested that we try warm water.  Hmm, there’s an idea… it worked!   They get a bowl of warm water and a bowl of cold water and they come up with new designs on their color changing cars.  They love it and could do it everyday:) 

Tonight AJ’s doing the pee pee dance, if you have a preschooler, you’ve seen it.  I tell him to go to the bathroom.  But before he goes, he asks, “Is pee pee warm?”  (Do you see where he’s going with this?)  I’m thinking uh-oh.  I reply, “No, AJ, you cannot pee on your color changing car.”  ….You’ve gotta love the mind of a 4-year-old!

I Found Something in Carson’s Mouth!

Carson's 1st tooth

August 17, 2009

The Greens Triumph over the Rocky Mountains (well sort of)

We did it!  We went camping!  This time we actually ate dinner and slept in a tent (well sort of).  So we were in a tent, but didn’t sleep much.  

We had hot dogs and of course s’mores!  The boys had such a good time exploring with their cousins-The Texas Greens!   Although one of the boys was falling every 15 minutes.  My poor nephew, Tyler, fell and ate a mouth full of dirt.  He even got some war wounds out of it.  But they were tough (well sort of). 

It was a great evening of putting up the tent, moving the tent, bear proofing everything-yeah, there have been bears up there.  Golden Gate State Park, by the way, BEAUTIFUL!  I’ve decided Chris and I ROCK at the whole setting up and taking down part.  Seriously!  We could have our scouts badge already, but some people think there’s more to camping than the set up part.  🙂 

So after we had dinner, the kids played, Misty and I took the boys exploring…and then it was time to put baby Carson down.  I fed him and layered him up and put him in the pack ‘n play.  He took awhile to settle down, but finally fell asleep.  Yes!  The night is off to a great start (well sort of).

About 30 minutes later after Carson went down.  Ryan found a huge bug on Carson’s side of the tent.  I did not scream or anything!  golden gate camping-212And I am telling you this picture does not do it justice, it was a very large bug.  So Ryan’s way of protecting baby Carson and dealing with the bug was to throw, hurl rather, the ball at the tent, which then started a chain reaction-a bad chain reaction.  Carson was startled awake and this made him raging mad.  One thing about my sweet boy is that he can be a bit of a screamer when he is mad or tired. 

We tried to get him to go back down, but that just wasn’t happening.  We got him up with us and so began the night of no sleep.  He nursed and slept on me while I watched the moon travel from one end of the tent to the other.  At the beginning of the night, I snuggled in my new sleeping bag (that would later twist and not zip because I was holding my sweet Carson) and laid comfortably on the surprisingly cozy air mattress (that would be completely deflated sometime later that night) and thought, “This is going to be the best night of no sleep-ever.”   It was wonderful holding that sweet little baby that is crawling everywhere now and will rarely snuggle with me.   Little did I know he would be waking up ever 1-2 hours screaming inconsolably-that part not so pleasant. 

None of us really slept except the boys.  All but poor Tyler, he got altitude sickness and was up most of the night being miserable.  Which later a friend read a story about a baby who had the same camping experience as Carson and they found out it was altitude sickness.  Poor babies! 

I will still say we were victorious!

I Finished!

I recently finished a women’s bible study at my church, Northern Hills, called Stepping Up by Beth Moore.  This was especially exciting for me because out of the several studies I’ve done either in a small or large group setting I’ve never finished every page.  There were always a few (or more) blank pages of homework.  I made a commitment to get up every morning at 6:00am to meet with God at the beginning of my day instead of when I got around to it.  Anyone who has ever spent more than 10 minutes with me knows that I am NOT a get up in the wee early morning type of gal.  I have to be honest and say that it didn’t happen every morning, especially when we were back in Neb visiting family.  However, I got up many more days than not.

Briefly, this was a study of the Psalms of Ascent, Psalms 120-134.  These Psalms were sung on the pilgrimage to the Three Great Feasts.   Each Psalm that they sang were also sang and connected to the 15 steps of the temple.  After each Psalm of Ascent, Ms. Moore, had us write a one sentence summary of what touched us most from each Psalm on a stair graphic in the back of the book.  I’ve felt led to share them.

Psalm 120:  I want to feel at home.

Psalm 121:  My God protects me.

Psalm 122:  I am glad to enter my church!

Psalm 123:  I lift my eyes to you, Lord.   I give you my attention and wait expectantly.

Psalm 124:  God has always/ will always be for me.

Psalm 125:  My trust in God is like Mount Everest.

Psalm 126:  I will sow in tears BUT will reap with shouts of JOY!

Psalm 127:  “Nisi Dominus Frusta.”

Psalm 128:  I will revere the Lord and walk in His ways.

Psalm 129:  When feeling attacked-they won’t get the best of me.

Psalm 130:  There is faithful love in our Lord!

Psalm 131:  (I desire to sit with the Lord) Calm like a weaned baby, like a little child with his mom.

Psalm 132:  I want to be in God’s presence-all the time! 

The second part of Psalm 132:  His holy people will shout for joy!

Psalm 133:  Harmony and unity are blessings. 

Psalm 134 was different.  She asked us to write a blessing for over a group of people.

Sisters, I’m praying that you allow God to fully transform your hearts and  your lives-no longer live for this world, but live for the next, taking as many as you can with us.  Accept God’s abundant grace and experience life to the fullest for Him.  When times of trial come, sow in tears, allow God to mold, and keep the promise that we will reap with shouts of joy!  In Christ’s name, Amen.

New Life

The older boys and I got to experience something truly amazing on Wednesday! 

I finally decided to tackle the remnants of my garage sale.  I started with a vest of Ryan’s that had been there-oh, since our camping trip, err camping disaster.  🙂  I tossed it in the keep pile and found that I had put my hand in some brown goo.  Gross!  What was that?  Then I saw a butterfly.  What did I think?  Photo op!  I ran inside to grab my camera, which lately feels more like a new appendage.  But I’m loving it!  I did wash my hands really quick because, what was that? 

When I got back outside I showed the kids and they were so excited! 

Then we noticed that this poor little guy seemed sick.  His wings were very weak. 

Then I thought that maybe he was brand new.  Remember the goo?  I looked at Ry’s vest again and sure enough-this is what I found!

I looked online and found that it can take as little as an hour for a butterfly’s wings to dry.  How amazing is it that we got to experience this?!  God is so good!
