Reading about God

I had a "The Way to God" booklet sitting on the computer desk. Aydin found it, asked what it was and started "reading" it. I came out of the kitchen and heard, "...and mama says Jesus is nice! I love Jesus, she is my best friend. I love Mary too." Ha, ha. We're getting there!

Before and After!

We have been VERY busy this summer working on things around the house. We decided to put the back yard on the back burner, so to speak, this year since it is going to be such a beast to tackle. Instead, we decided to redo the front yard. The rocks were mismatched and the bushes were blah.

And recently, while Jesse and I were on a date night, we came home to a little flood in the bathroom. We had been planning on replacing the linoleum eventually, but were now in the position to have to move it up on the to do list. The old linoleum was not well installed and was bubbling up and peeling off the floors, so we replaced all of it in the kitchen, kid's bathroom, and entry way. We'll probably do our bathroom and the laundry room at Christmas break. So, here are some before and after pictures of our "little" projects:

(below is the only "before" bathroom picture that I could find.)
