Quote of the Week

“The less time one has, the more important it is to husband it. If you wait till you have regular and convenient hours at your disposal to fill with substantial duties, you run the risk of waiting too long, especially in your kind of life; you must seize every spare moment.”
~from “Dialogues with Felenon”

Cute Quotes


One time as we were going somewhere as a family, we passed someone’s yard who had two deer “statues” in their yard.  Isaiah excitedly said, “Look! There’s two deer in those people’s yard!”

Charissa replied, “No, they’re fake.”

“Huh-uh! They’re deer!

“They’re fake.”

“No they’re deer!  Fakes don’t have horns!”

 One day Charissa took a Band-Aid off and Isaiah exclaimed, “Your owie’s done, Charissa!  Your owie’s all done!”


Anna was holding Noah up high and was heading towards a low hanging sticky fly strip.  Noah started protesting and said, “No!  You’ll get me stuck to the fly swatter!”
