This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Yesterday--Fun With Lexi and Emily

I tried to post this last night, but the picture refused to upload.  (It's from a trip to the park a couple months ago, but it could easily have been taken yesterday.)

Yesterday Kristi was really under the weather...she couldn't really talk at all and Lexi just wasn't up to dealing with whispers.  So Papa Don went over to spend some time with Thing 2.  We went to the neighborhood park and had a blast.  We hit the swing set first and sang as we swang.  Swinged.  Swung.  Whatever the heck the word is. Then we did the slides and climbed the steps. She's so much fun. Before we went back to the house we did some more swinging/singing.  I fixed her a bit of lunch and watched her play with her "computer" a while as Kristi and I shared a couple cans of Progresso Minestrone!  Mmmmmm--love me some soup! 

Then off to work for the afternoon.

Last night, Lyn and I went to Jennifer and Brian's to help them pack up their kitchen.  (We picked up some In-N-Out first.)  They hope to close on their new place Monday...maybe move in next weekend. We're so happy for them.  Of course, I got to have some fun quality time with Thing 3 (Emily Brynn) for a while.  She's so adorable.  A bundle of perpetual motion--always kicking her little feet and "shadow boxing"--it's no wonder she hasn't hit 13 pounds yet!  She works off calories as fast as she takes them in.

My only regret of the day was not getting to see Haley.  She was off to Big-Girl school, so I was only 2/3 complete.  But it was still a fun day.  

Love my girls.

We were happy to help in any way we could.

We're looking forward to your being in your new place!
