On to our week. In the above photo is our three year old getting a back ride from Daddy. She is immensely in love with her Daddy time. She loves hard and she plays hard. She still wants to go at it looooong after your will lug her around on your neck or back or leg has gone but Daddy is so very willing and patient with her.

Something else exciting that I learned this week is that both my 6 year old and 3 year old have the entire 23rd Psalms from the Good News Bible memorized!!! It's been our scripture that we've been reading before starting school everyday for about 8 weeks now. We've read it more often than not but not everyday. Well I learned on Monday morning that Madison has it down pat word for word without any help! I did not set out to teach them the memory of this passage of scripture it just happened out of shear repetition. I love it! And our 3 year old has it about 98% memorized. She occasionally needs me to start a line for her and then she's off and running for 4-5 lines without any help. Let me just tell you that there has been no greater feeling, as a mother of school-aged children, for me than to hear my little butterflies recite God's word based on my sharing it with them on a consistent basis. What tops that? The word of God is getting in their hearts. It feels like I'm doing my job as a parent. Praise God!
Sorry that I don't have more pics from the week but I've misplaced my phone.
