24 hours

Well...thank the Lord it must have only been a 24 hour thing with Seth. By lunch time...he was pretty much back to normal...running around the house...riding his bike outside...and eating decently. I feel very fortunate...cause it is just no fun with a sick kid. However...he has evidently learned that being sick bides him a little extra lee-way. The afternoon-evening...whenever he was doing something he shouldn't or that we asked him to (that he didn't want to do) he would roll out the crocodile tears and say..."But I just don't feel good!" He is just so darn cute....all I can do is give him big bear hugs and love on him.

I am amazed at the creative answers to our little contest. It's not too late...Andy and I will decide on the winner Monday night after Seth goes to bed...so you have until about 8:30 to get your answers in! The winner will be posted Tuesday morning. Thanks to everyone who has given such great ideas already...it's going to be a hard choice.

Not much else to report...just another week at it. BTW....Andy and I rented Enchanted last night! Can I just say that it is an adorable movie! It was so creative (and clean!). You know it's a good movie when you watch all the DVD extras...which is fascinating when you learn all they really do to make a movie! If you haven't seen it yet...add it to your list...just a fun movie to watch on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn.

Hoping that April is full of God's wonderful blessings...for us all!

So glad it was a quick illness for Seth! They learn very quickly hat they can use the "I don't feel good" card and get away with murder when they're sick! ;o) Can't wait to see you guys!

Hi Krista,
It's so funny how once my mind gets going, it doesn't stop! Every time I woke up last night, more ideas were going through my head for Kate's Kart! I'm afraid I've forgotten a couple of them (I should have gotten up and wrote them down!) but here's what I remember:

Kate's Kart - An Imagination Vacation

Kate's Kart - An Inspiration Station

Continued prayers!

Yay, I'm glad Seth is feeling better! How funny that he milks it a bit. :)

I forgot about your contest! I've been pondering and then I forgot to come back to it. I'll do that now!

Krista, I wrote the following to Kathy Coulter and she sent me this response. I am sorry she hasn't sent anything today so I could pass it onto you before you and Andy make your decision. Maybe Kathy could come up with a jingle that her lower school choir could sing on a video asking for support.

Anita

Hi, Anita, our new Second-Floor Neighbor (!!)--

Thank you for the kind words, friend. Spring break has been lovely so
far-- mostly sleeping. Isn't that pathetic? My speaking voice is
mostly back, still waiting to be able to sing...and after my latest
go-'round with Jonathan, I'm relieved to say that I do indeed have a job
for next year, so all is well.

I have a couple of glimmers of ideas about the book cart. Funny-- I had
a dream about Krista and Kate last night. I'll get back to you as I get
them in better shape.

Enjoy the remaining week-- I mjade note of your deadline, and I'll be
back in touch in a day or so.

Kathy

I LOVE that movie. That was the first movie we saw as a family...during a tornado in Florida. Anyway, Leah got so freaked out by the ogre and the dragon and the witch...she would cry out "don't hurt the princess" I tried to have her leave the theater, but she refused...she just stood there terrified and sad until the happily ever after parts...I am glad you enjoyed it! It is one of my favorites!

Hugs to you all...yea Seth for getting better so quick!

Love,
Samantha

Hi Krista,

Sorry I didn't put my name on the note -- I ran out of room and then out of time!! But I am glad I have another chance to let you know I am thinking of you...

Glad to know Seth is on the mend. These little kids are quick learners, aren't they? They seem to know just when to push their parents just a wee bit more! I loved Enchanted too, watched it with my kids last week. We rarely ever have movie night at home anymore, it's so hard to find clean movies that we can all enjoy!
