*Would you guys please pray for Moriah? Last week, she and Ethan ran into each other at the park, giving her a major black eye. Since then, it has gotten better daily, and yesterday it was close to being completely well, but for some reason (four year old clumsiness?) she keeps bumping it on things, and Noah has accidentally hit it a couple of times (not related to the green bean bowling incident, by the way: read below).

I just wanted to let everyone know that first of all, I appreciate the discussion, and I really appreciate keeping it nice. Hopefully, there haven't been too many not-nice comments regarding these conversations floating around anyone's houses, either :o)
Anyway, I was out of the house all day yesterday, and today (when I can drag myself out of a horizontal position, that is) I've got to reclaim my house from the destruction that happens when I leave everyone here with my aunt (read: fun babysitter, not so much the let's keep things clean type, but that's okay), not to mention school. So, while I am planning on responding to a few more comments, it's kind of low on the priority list right now. Hopefully this afternoon or tonight.
Just didn't want anyone to think I'd chickened out :o)
Presently my younger children have taken up bowling with cans of green beans, and seeing as how they seem to have particularly good aim toward one another's heads, I've gotta
