"Sometimes a light surprises the Christian while he sings; it is the Lord, who rises with healing in his wings; when comforts are declining, he grants the soul again a season of clear shining , to cheer it after rain." William Cowper, 1779

I was so pleased. After working hard to weed out toys with broken and missing pieces, noisey toys, just plain annoying toys, and other general un-used toys, I was left with a beautifully organized play room closet.
Ahhhh . . . the pride, the joy . . .
This morning when I awoke I thought, "I can't wait to let the kids play in the newly organized play room. Won't they love the un-cluttery feel of the room, now that they can find their best toys?"
After a few minutes of the four of them in the room, it became strangely quiet . . .
The big news around here is that Samuel has learned to ride a "big boy bike" with no training wheels! We are all seriously proud of him! Kiah's riding her trike more and even Kate's trying to get into the act by walking a scooter around the block!
It was fun to celebrate Brian's 33rd birthday this weekend. The kids and I "invented" a cake! Seeing as Brian doesn't like regular cake, we made one out of ice cream sandwiches. After cutting them in half, stacking them into the shape I wanted, I iced it and the kids helped to decorate it. We threw some candles on top and voila - ice cream sandwich cake! We pretty much just dug into it. The greatest part was that there were no plates to clear!
