good bye february...

goodbye shortest month of the year...
hello spring
geez time flies

we've had some crazy weather days lately
warm then cool
windy then cloudy
then a few drops of rain

we need rain

my aunt alice sent this picture last week...
so much SNOW in oklahoma
......meanwhile in the south
spring weather is abundant
we're lucky like that :)
my gardener has been busy
200+ onion bulbs ;)
our little SPURS had their last basketball game of the season Saturday
i hope they play again, year after year
i'll never get tired of watching my boys play sports
i read this recently...
 Our boys are built to be manly, but they're just young and untaught. Manly virtues like competitiveness, aggression, a desire for adventure. Messy, scary ideas, courage, endurance, fortitude, noisy.
God made this little boy energetic so one day he can go out and conquer the world.
Or at least, one day he'll have the gumption to support his family, minister his church, be a pillar in his community. Right now, he just needs to learn some self control.
there is no treatment for being a little boy.
We've got to teach them how to submit to authority without destryoing their leadership.
so grateful to be momma to two fierce little warriors!
prayerful for a pure heart as i mother them
with loads of patience, love, training and support
 and when one of them writes us a letter like this
i almost want to eat them up
so blessed to be loved by him

it's so fun to watch

cooper has great ball control

corbin is a go getter and gets lots of rebounds

i've sure enjoyed watching them play :)

this little cutie lost both his front teeth within a week or so
no more snaggle tooth corbin mocha doodle is still doodle as can be
she fits in with the family perfectly
she and coach LOVE each other,
and have so much fun wrestling and chasing and playing together
adam is working hard on planting our spring garden
i love to put down "gardening" as one of my hobbies
but really it's not mine at all

The 10 Commandments

Adam challenged the boys to learn the 10 commandments.
They praticed after school for a few weeks, using their children's bibles.
So the version is not exact to the version we probably learned as children.
Not quite as many 'thou shall's'. :)
A few nights ago Corbin was finally ready to recite them for his $20 reward.
And while snuggling and reading books in our bed before bedtime.
I videotaped him. he's on youtube now. sharing the good news!
Isn't he so cute?!
Cooper is almost ready to recite soon!!
