it’s been a good day of family time. mama’s feeling a bit better recently, so she was more herself today. she took this as a good sign (which it is of course) but then got a little carried away and overdid it a little. this is completely normal, by the way, so we’re not too worried.
anyway, the kids and I were talking about seasons during lunch (warm in summer — like today!, cold in winter). Caleb’s in the “why?” stage a lot, so he was asking why a lot, and it soon came down to “because God made it that way” as it often does.
that got him thinking about heaven, and he came out with: “can I bring my stuffed animals to heaven?” there’s so much to this little question that I love, but I had to tell him no, we cant take toys to heaven, but it will be so wonderful there — we’ll be with God! — that we wont mind. he seemed to be OK with the compromise.
today we otherwise had a blast in the little kiddie pool and got a few things done around here. by the way, if anyone is looking for pictures and such on the family website, I’m in the process of moving them to flickr.com since the old family site has been feeling under the weather. it may take a while but hopefully we’ll keep up with posting more once we’re moved over.
