our week

this week has been hard.
all because bo christian loves his brothers and they love him.
bo christian doesn't want to nap or go to sleep at night because the big boys are awake.
bo is beyond exhausted.
the big boys are outside most of the day and he wants to be with them.
of course they don't always want to watch him and i can't spend hours each day outside.
so, bo stands at the door or window and cries.
eventually one of us will feel sorry for him and take him out to join the others.
bauer and caden take him on multiple bike rides each day.
but it is never enough.
every time they leave on their bikes without him, he cries.
this week he stood on the driveway in tears as the big boys all rode off to the park.

hopefully this next week will be a happier one.

i mentioned we read the Bible together as a family.
i don't want to send the wrong message,
like we are perfect pious Bible scholars.

one night we were discussing how we all have different God given strengths.
caden chimes in the conversation with-

when God was making me He said,
"I need to add a drop of sexiness.
oops!  too much!"

how can parents not enjoy this age?
i've gotten to where i just love middle schoolers.
