My First Love, My Guys and the Art Niche

I've made a slow recovery from last week. Thanks for all the great comments. They helped tremendously, and ironically, so did our Friday night activity. Before liking boys, or being cute, or New Kids on the Block, I loved basketball. Friday night we got brave enough to resurrect our ball and shot hoops off the neighbor's goal. The boys LOVED it, and Scott and I had great fun as well. I had forgotten how much love I had for the sport. I went to bed thinking about how much fun it will be to cheer for my boys. Owen, like his Mom, preferred the long rebounds and no look passes. He will be an exciting point guard! Jace, like his Dad, will be much more aggressive and live for the slam dunk -- BOO YAAA! I can't wait to see these guys in action. Or not. Perhaps they'll be in the band, but whatever!!!

My multi-talented artist friend Diana came over and painted our art niche yesterday. Scott and I had several verses on our short list, but couldn't decide. Then, we got the DCC Cornerstone (our college newsletter), and they had highlighted Matthew 25:40, on one of the pages. My mind was made up at that point. It came from a passage that I really wanted to use, but didn't know how to condense it to make it look good. This verse says exactly what we want our kids to be mindful of everyday. I'm so happy to have it done.

so you know....the crying never stops. I dropped Ryder off in front of JUNIOR HIGH along with 400 other JUNIOR HIGH students...I cried for 30 minutes. Rylee was with me when we dropped him off and was sure something was really wrong until I explained to her that this is what mama's do on the first day. Glad for an update!

Ok, I'm behind. I'm sorry. I didn't even realize Rana had her first day. I need to call. She looks beautiful! I love the art work too. I knew it would look good.

You and I both will be on the front row at the band concert, sporting event, or ballet whooping it up. I feel sorry for our kids with their "loud-mouth" mommies ;) Hey, don't count Rana out...she has a bball spirit too:)
Love the verse! Can't wait to see it in person.
