Who Built The Ark


Last night our Bible reading included the story of Noah. In the middle of Scott's reading, Owen busted out in song, "Who built the ark? No One, No One ..." We were so proud until he got to the second sentence. With Owen, you never know if he's intentionally being funny. We corrected him, but he continued on with his version. It was a great laugh. It also reminded me of Smiley's son Ihsan who sings, "Here I am to worship, here I am to bow-wow." I think of him everytime I hear that song. Kids say the darndest things!

All About Rana

Right now our lives seem to be a lot about Rana, but in a good way. Nothing like last year at this time when it was all about Jace being hospitalized and coming home with an oxygen tank. So, first let me document that on MLK day I gave Rana the Mommy quiz about who Dr. King was and why he is important to us. Having never seen an African American at her school, I asked her if there were any. She said, "Yes, Michelle." Michelle's last name is Rodriguez. So sad, since there are Rodriguez's in my family. I really need to culture these kids!

She also got a taste of cheerleading last night, which I have to admit makes me proud. The senior high in our district puts on a cheer camp for the little ones as a fund raiser every year, and then they perform at the half time of a varsity game. Here's a little video. She's the one with brown pants and curly hair. So cute ...
