Quote of the Week


It is God’s nature to give.  He can no more ‘help’ giving than He can ‘help’ loving.  He will give us everything in the world that is good for us.

Elisabeth Elliot

Edward Yudenich, a 7-year-old conductor.  It is SO much fun watching him!  If you don’t have time for the whole 9 minute movie, at least watch to the 2:30 minute mark to see him conduct with his arms folded 😀

Cute Quotes


Noah and Isaiah got to take a bath in the jacuzzi (something they rarely get to do!) and Isaiah told Anna, “Me and Noah got in the zucchini!”

Anna: “The zucchini?”

Isaiah: “Yes!  It felt like someone was tickling us!”



Noah came smiling out of the laundry room and told Leah,  “There’s a spider in there and it has eight legs!”

A little while later he said, “It’s legs were all bended up, so I blew on it and they spread out and I counted them.”



Noah: “Sometimes Isaiah pretends he is dead, so then I tickle him to see if he’s really dead or not.”


Charissa:  “If you have no flabby skin then it slows down your immune system, you don’t have good bacteria and you will get cancer.”


“What is your immune system?”
