Psalm 127:3-5

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5
Dean and Dawn proud parents of these blessings:

Mackenzie Jo 19, Carter Dean 15, Reegan Marie 12, Cael Charles 11, Quincy Everett 9, Addelynn Ruth 7, Cade Joseph 5, Kyler Erwin 4, and Jaycie LeeAnn 2

Friday March 13th

Today, Reegan, Cael, Quincy and I are attending a 2 hour class on fetal pig dissection - ick. Carter was supposed to go, but he has already done this once, and so I am swapping him out for Quincy. This is a class Reegan wanted to go to, she has already done it once and wanted to try it again. Since it is a family class, then I am required to be there as well. This will be interesting. I have done some dissection in my past, a rat, frog, etc. Never a fetal pig. I am sure I will learn something along the way.

I saw the movie Marley and Me on Monday, this is a really good movie, I am still thinking about it. Very real,and it has been a long time since I have sat in a theatre and cried. Quincy and Kyler were both sleeping on my lap, Q had wet hair when the movie was over - I do not think he knows. Addy was asleep beside me, and Cade was asleep on Mackenzie. Afterwards we all agreed that this was probably not an appropriate movie for the younger children, and we were able to talk that through, and even discuss the ratings system used by movies. I have no faith in the ratings system, and I should have done my homework before taking them. We were able to discuss the questionable parts. I know I am no where near a perfect parent and make plenty of mistakes along the way, I love being able to talk these through with my children, they see me fail each day, one of the cool things about home schooling, the nitty gritty of life.

AAU Districts is tomorrow, I will be the nervous mom. Dean says Carter is ready, I trust him, he knows more then me. Anyway, there will be many miles on my shoes towards the rest room! Not that I will be resting in there, unless you consider sitting down a rest. This is the stepping stone for AAU State he will need to finish in the top 4.

Mackenzie is working until midnight tonight, I am leaving tomorrow morning at 6:40, if you think that once your children are grown you will get more sleep, I am here to say that is not always true!
