Today has been a quiet day for some reason. This is a rare occurrence in our house, you see. I don't know what we've done right, but I certainly hope we can repeat it. The children have been peacefully making dragons and other such creations from their imaginations using materials such as tissue boxes, egg cartons, and construction paper. They are so creative. I don't really understand where it comes from. I could write a craft project book from the simple and fun things that they make on a daily basis. I never provide insight or even specialized materials. They use whatever they can lay their hands on, and the result is almost always entertaining, witty, or even amazing.

Right now, Encyclopedia Brown (9 yr old son) is busy with a history assignment while The Quiet One (7 yr old son) busies himself with the comic book he has been working on creating for 3 days. Little Princess (6 yr old daughter) has just finished her latest creation and is now absorbed in some sort of imaginative play in which she is a pauper child. The other two (the toddlers) are in dreamland, and I have stolen away for a moment to my only real creative outlet besides the kitchen. So here I am. But, it's shortlived, for now EB is calling for my help with his assignment. Hope to meet you here again tomorrow!

Very cool! I have a blog on myspace, but I don't do it every day.

And I know about the flylady!!! I've been FLYing for a month:)

I love your church. Just how big is the congregation? Girl, you took on quite a job! But God provides, doesn't He!

And I love staying home with my boys, and soon to arrive girl. It is something to watch their little monds work and see their imagination come to life.

My church averages about 500 on Sunday mornings. That translates to anywhere from 25 to 50 in the Nursery building! Whew! Our pastor is awesome, and there are links to listen to some of his sermons. Thanks for your comment!
