Cute Quotes:
 

   

After doing lunch dishes in front of a sunny window, Charissa said, with her eyes WIDE open,
“Oh! It’s nice to stretch my eyes!” 
~   ~    ~
Noah was doing something with a rubber band and asked Leah if she saw it.  She nodded her head, and he said, “Yeah? talk louder!”
~   ~   ~
One day, Bekah was complaining that Noah wanted his lunch right away.
“He’s just being patient and won’t wait!”
~   ~   ~
One Sunday, on the way home from church, Cassia overheard Bekah talking to Charissa.
Bekah:  “Charissa, do you want to adopt from India?”
Charissa: “Indeed.”
