I love having a 7 year old...


I was so tired this morning. I heard the kids stirring around 7:30. I'm usually up around 6-6:30...so I had already gotten an extra hour of sleep but I still wanted more. I burried my head back in my pillow and fell sound asleep--again. I woke up an hour later to complete silence. Knowing this was not the norm, I jumped out of bed to go investigate. As I rounded the corner into the kitchen, this is what I found. Four children sitting at the table, eating their cereal, pancakes, and bananas. Hudson had quieted them all so that he could read them his daily Bible reading from John. I'm not sure what I've ever done to deserve: #1 to sleep in on a Saturday a.m. and #2 to have children that realize when I need a couple extra hours of sleep and are self-sufficient.

that's so funny about the tomatoes. We have tomatoes planted and Lucy has picked a few green ones and has then thrown them down saying "yucky grapes." Now that we have red ones, she picks them all and eats them right away, maybe Mike and I will get some this year :)
