What's new

I've been a bad blogger lately...

Maybe it's because our new fall schedule involves MOPS on Tuesday, Awana Cubbies on Wednesday, BSF on Thursday, and playgroup on Fridays?
How handsome is this boy in his Cubbies vest? I just love listening to him recite his verses!
Or maybe its because I've recently taken over as Nursery Coordinator at church, and Publicity Coordinator for MOPS?

Or maybe its because I'm still recovering from our church retreat 2 weekends ago. We had an amazing time of fellowship, teaching, and prayer at Camp Erdman on the North shore. It was the first time we had spent the night away from home IN Hawaii. We shared a cabin (or "cabinet" as Keaton called it) with the Heath family. My boys of course woke up before dawn, so we escaped to the beach to keep from waking anyone else. How cool to watch the sunrise on a completely empty beach with just our family!

Or maybe it's because we just recently completed our 4th and 5th visit from Flat Stanley...
more to come on this...

Or maybe its because we've all had colds, and last weekend Mark broke out in a mysterious rash all over his body? It was the weirdest thing... no fever, and it never even seemed to bother him. He just looked terrible!
poor little guy!
Or maybe its because we've been too busy driving over to Ko'olina to sneak into Aulani, the new Disney resort just to see what it was like. In typical Disney fashion, everything was spectacular.

Can I get a staycation please?

Or maybe its because I'm constantly trying to keep Mark from killing himself. Keaton was never a climber, so this is all new to me. We've had to rearrange Keaton's room to keep Mark from crawling out the window, as he has tried to do many times. Staying one step ahead of this boy is no easy task...

Or maybe it's just because I'm ashamedly addicted to Netflix streaming of The Hills? What it is about the drama filled life of these young socialites that is so fascinating to me? I'm 55 episodes in, and no end in sight. Please help me.

In any case, I'll try to do better at updating the ole blog for all of my faithful followers (all 3 of you)! :-)

My mom is on vacation with Flat Stanley! haha! (for my friend's kid!) Just yesterday, I looked up and my #2 was standing backwards in the tree swing. We're doomed, Ashley!

I saw Caroline's Flat Stanley today at her classroom! Thanks!
We are up at Mt. Mitchell.

Ash, about the rash...had he been on any penicillin? That's just what Jake looked like when he broke out with an allergy to penicillin.
