Don't put God in a box, or a house

I was pushing Ezekiel in the swing and this is how our conversation went down:

Zeke liked how high he was going. He said he was almost to the sky. If he could go all the way to the sky he could play with God. Then God could come down to play with us. But God is too big to fit in our house.

Lost in Translation

One afternoon Zeke and Granny V were playing at the creek. Zekers got stuck in the mud and when Granny went to the rescue she slipped and scraped her foot. When Ole Loose Lips told us the story he said Granny yelled, "Got all muddy!"; what he didn't realize was that she actually yelled, "God Almighty!" :)

My Little Scholar

Whilst waiting to get our car inspected, Zeke was drawn to a Scientific American with a picture of light bulbs connected to a woman's head with wires. After looking at the magazine for a bit he said, "This is a strange story."

About 3 minutes and several pages later: "This is still a strange story."

I'm Jonesin' Man!

It's like crack. Daisy just can't get enough of her new swing. This is now what she does:

And here's what happens when you open the door:

Cost of a new swingset...PRICELESS.

Literally. A single guy from Abe's work just bought a new house and didn't need the swingset. Another guy from work let Abe borrow his truck for the weekend to move it. Praise God for providing! It's several years old, may need a new swing or two, but it's new to us...and it's free! We (translation: Abe) are still in the process of reconstructing it, but here it is so far.

Here is a close up of that shot. In case you didn't notice, poor little Daisy is crying.

Bless her little heart. She just wants to be in the middle of all the action up top but is still too little to climb by herself.

Pathetic little thing. It's tough being the youngest!

Zeke The Streak Strikes Again

Zekers fell asleep in the car on the way home one afternoon. Employing my best ninja skills I gently carried him in on the bed, hoping he would sleep through the transfer. He rolled over and as he was getting off the bed he softly said, "I'll be back. I just gotta go take off my clothes and be naked."
