I also re-discovered how ridiculous middle school boys are. But seriously, SO much fun :)
See, I can be a good sister- I take them bowling!
And get this, Casey turned 13!!! Seriously, that needs to stop. He's officially taller than me. And has more facial hair than my 16 year old friends. Enough said.
I also got to watch my sweet Emmy again :) I used to watch her four days a week before she went to day-care. So now I just get her when her school is on break, but Mommy's work isn't :)
I kinda love kids in case you couldn't tell :)
Needless to say, I love them:)

Working in the Kiddie Kare here has been awesome. I love kids so much, so this is the best! It amazes me daily how much we can impact these kids’ lives. The other day, I only had a few kids (for some reason the rain keeps people away!) and the one little girl is a regular. She’s five years old and the sweetest thing ever. She started telling me about her birthday, and one thing led to another, and we were talking about how Jesus is incorporated into major holidays! Kids see things so simply, I love it! Christmas, “is Jesus’ birthday.” Easter “he woke up” ;) “because the Friday before (she swiped her hand across her throat, like she was being killed) He died. “ Ha! They crack me up! Even simple things, like helping them with their homework makes them trust you, and once they do that, you can help them in so many ways! I also wear a purity ring, which has been kind of a hot conversation topic with the older kids since the whole Jonas Brothers & Jordan Sparks statement on the VMA awards. (If you haven’t seen that, it’s on youtube!)
A lot of these kids don’t go to church or anything, and they are all at that age where they are excited to learn, so it’s a great witnessing opportunity! Now that I look at the clock, I need to get going. I have to do a short shift today and then workout before church. I’ll be in the nursery tonight- more kids! :)
