First Day of School

Today was the first day of school at the Broome house.  One first(ish) grader, one kindergartner, one 3k-er and one adorable little guy.  Those who know me well understand that the amount of planning and organizing that goes into such a day is quite an undertaking for this a-little-on-the-free-spirited-side mama.  But plan and organize I did.  And although the day was FAR from perfect and calm, it was a really good day.

Rain, Glorious Rain

We had the most amazing rainy afternoon yesterday.  I'm sure the farmers around here were really thankful.  I know four kiddos who were too:)

Funny Stuff

Anna Bell:  When I grow up, I'm going to go to jail.

Me:  hmm.

(Our dear Macon friends, the Jones came to visit a couple of weeks ago and this convo happened between Joshua and Mrs. Cortney while watching the Olympics)

Joshua: Ewww, why did that girl just spit in her hands?!!?

Cort:  They do that so they can get a good grip on the bars with that powder on their hands

Joshua:  That's what country people do.  ...And we're city people...well....sorta.

(AB was being discipined for being unkind with her words.)

Me:  Anna Bell, it is very important that when we are unkind to someone that we ask for their forgiveness and for God to forgive us.  Mama has to ask for forgiveness when I am unkind with my words too.

Anna Bell:  Who are you unkind to?

Me.  Well, sometimes I am unkind with my words towards daddy and I have to ask for his forgiveness.

Anna Bell: (with big eyes)  WHY?!!?

Me:  Because I am selfish and sinful.

Anna Bell:  (with a great deal of expression)  But he's the Pastor!!!

Me:  Oh brother....

Sweet Pitifulness

Isn't this just the cutest thing you've ever seen?!? 
Ezra is now cast free, thankfully.  He is still favoring it a bit, but starting to pull up and willing to put some weight on his right leg for short amounts of time.
