Memory Loss

 There are probably ten thousand things that our girls have said that I find hilarious - that I promise myself I'll remember, but of course - I don't.
Thus the random conversations below...

On singing together:
We're great songers, Momma.

School Days

I was going through some of the girls' work from this past school year
(I realize it's already the end of July - I'm such a slacker!), and found these keepers:

I love my Mom.
My moma is sweet because she loves me.

Reunion Fun

sweet Tito Al and Sarah
My mom grew up with eight brothers and sisters.  My dad is the youngest of six.
You can imagine how large our family gets after that.

My sister, her husband, and three of my cousins (and their families) are in Chicago right now visiting one of my uncles.  Know that there will be lots of loud talking, laughing, picture-taking, and eating.

Funky Monkeys

The Husband took Miss Espy and the big kids to King's Dominion today.

Oh, vacay - we miss you so!

It seems that craftiness runs in my both my sisters' blood because Jennifer (my SIL) had crafts for them

Dipping Jesus

We headed to the beach yesterday afternoon to baptize four of our brothers.  On our way to the water, Isabella and I had a fantastic conversation:

What's Pastor Bob going to do at the beach?

Dip Jesus.

No, he's not dipping Jesus.

Dipping the people.

Why is he dipping our friends?

Because they love Jesus!

After the baptism, the girls insisted on going into the water.  Isabella tried to argue that she didn't need to wear clothes while she played.  I convinced her otherwise.  Instead, she rode home from the beach sans clothing.
