"Enjoy the little things in life ~ one day you'll wake up and realize they were the big things"

It seems that we are creeping closer to the 21st century at our house! I understand that for many families, texting is the "in" thing among family and friends. We haven't gotten there yet, and we don't have an iphone . . . but Emily and Daniel are sure into the computer lately! We're regularly on it for school projects and Spanish lessons, but they've taken things a step farther and have recently begun blogs of their own ~ oh my! Emily, especially, LOVES adding things to hers and has even roped a few of her friends into creating blogs as well. They enjoy "following" each others new posts and leaving comments. Emily has even discovered how to have pets on your blog! (who'd a thunk it?!) . . . Part of me thinks that we've created a monster (allowing it) and I've joked that I am NOT responsible for what she puts on there! The truth is that it's become quite an exercise for me to allow them creative, unique expression without offering too much editing or censorship (not TOO much!). Emily would be tickled pink if you checked it out and became a follower (even a sporadic one) . . . Daniel too! (www.emilygrenier.blogspot.com or www.danielgrenier.blogspot.com)

I don't think Levi is going to venture into that hobby anytime soon, but I'll let you know if he does! Right now he's busy gathering supplies for a paramedic kit and attempting to build a stretcher ( . . . he isn't content to merely learn about things without doing something with what he’s learning ~ even in the pretend realm!) He has suggested that we work together on the stretcher during our first “one on one” time of the year (when we start school again in January). I wasn’t altogether excited about the possible (prophetic) significance of starting our year off building a stretcher! . . . hmmmmm?!
