Today went by extremely fast. Timothy and I woke up at about 5:15 this morning but teh rest of the crew slept until 6:30-45ish. We had breakfast, got ready for the day and had family devotions – “work hard at a good reputation because you can’t lose a bad one.” (Prov 22:1, sort of)
After we dropped the girls off at school the boys and I did a little work in the office before coming home and putting Timmy down for a nap. I did some email correspondence while Zaccai and Wesley did their thing – homework and homewrecking, respectively of course.
Before I knew it we had picked Kaeli up, eaten lunch, taken naps, grabbed Hannah and headed over to Oak Hill to interview a propspective teacher for next year. Timmy cried from 3:00-4:00 and then when he saw he bed he jumped in so we missed jiu-jitsu tonight but Timmy got his nap. From 4:00-5:00 we put on the boxing gloves, head gear, and sparring pads and had ourselves some pipsqueak MMA action! Kaeli ended up winning. In round one Zaccai took Hannah pretty quickly. Then Kaeli TKO’d Wesley in about 1 minute. Zaccai took a quick cheap shot at Kaeli so he was disqualified, which meant that Kalei won the final round and was declared Champion. I offer to snuggle with teh kids but they would much rather sucker punch me and then roll on the ground.
Joan Conpoka (our preschool director) brought us some KFC for dinner – thanks Joan – and after dinner we watched Toothless, which is not exactly accurate in it’s description of heaven, hell, and the after-life.
Next thing we know it’s 8:45 and we’re brushing our teeth while I read a chapter from The Little Flowers of St. Francis (really, if you haven;t bought this book by now what are waiting for?). If you decide to buy the book get the version that is translated by Dr. Don Demaray.
So now, everyone is sleeping. Daddy is reading up on Matthew’s gospel. Somewhere, someone is waking up to a new day and discover that the mercies of the Lord are new every morning. Good night.
