The Show Must Go On

  • Always on the go, it seems! There are pictures and a video of them in their costumes on All Saints' Day. Aolani enjoyed chocolate, a short movie, and her first glow-in-the-dark wand.
  • On Saturday we decided to take a mini-vacation to Blowing Rock. Ricky let me sleep in a little longer that day. When he got the kids ready, he accidentally squeezed Aolani into Micaiah's jeans (thinking they were suppose to be tight -- "skinny jeans"). Well, when Aolani had to go... yeah, she couldn't get 'em off. And, Micaiah wore something else.
  • At Blowing Rock we ate (at a cafe for lunch), ate (ice cream cone at homemade chocolate shop), ate (let Aolani swing at the park, loudly cried when we had to go, strangers offered her a cookie to shut her up, I mean, comfort her), and ate (Ricky chose a DQ to stop at while I nurse). Weather was perfect. Micaiah slept through seeing The Blowing Rock (the natural site). 
  • My kids are still messed up from Daylight Savings Time -- ugghhh! [Simply means that we all get less sleep.]
  • On the way there Saturday morning, we stopped off to let me do early voting. Of course, Aolani wanted to vote, too. That evening, Ricky made a fine ballot for her (using all her stuffed animals as the candidates), and she even got a sticker (that she is still boasting)!

  • Verse to memorize this week: Galatians 3:3 ~ How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?
