Very Random Thoughts

Well, I got out of the house today and bought some construction paper for the girls projects that they always like to do at home. Josh also went to the store and got computer paper and a couple of sketch pads for the kids. Oh, well. So we won't need to get any more paper for a while! Last week when the kids brought home our new kitten, Tuna, we were out of cat food and Josh and I both went to the store. I had to get the kids school supplies anyway, so I went ahead and bought some cat food while I was at Wal-Mart. I came home and Josh was pooring some cat food he had just bought into their bowl. Things are going well with the cat. I haven't been able to find the free clinic to get him nutured, but hopefully Josh will help with that soon. I'm not very good at driving and looking for a place I'm not familiar with at the same time. I'm not even very good at just driving! I have only had my driver's license for about 11 months and I'm a slow learner anyway! Jeremiah will be starting football soon. He's all registered and games are supposed to start mid-september. Next Wednesday I will be starting my Navigators' study at BBF and the kids will start AWANA's again. I haven't decided yet if I should make Chloe go or not. She really doesn't want to. She has a hard time memorizing the verses and she has a hard time understanding the games well enough to play them, so she hates those. And since she hates it we have to fight with her to get her to go every week! I'm just not sure it's worth it. If anyone has any advice on this I could sure use some. She has ADD, so that's a big part of it, I think. She's not severe enough to need medications, but she definitely has a hard time focusing and I'm not very patient with her. Or maybe I'm just being hard on myself, cause I think I should know how to help her. Her school is great. They adjust really well to her learning style and do whatever she needs to do to learn. I love it! I couldn't find a better school for her if I could afford private school I don't think. In fact, if I won the lottery(kind of difficult since I don't buy tickets, I hear)I think I'd still send her exactly where she's at right now. Anyway, that's what's happening here. Oh, and she is only seven years old. It's not like she needs a whole lot of extra activities quite yet. I'm just worried about Angela thinking she can get out of it, just because she wants to hang out with her friends all the time, and not do anything responsible, because her sister doesn't have to go. Anyway, let me know what you think.


  1. Too funny that you and Josh both got new paper and food! If your kids like crafts and drawing as much as mine do, they'll be through it in no time!

    I would say that I wouldn't push Chloe. You want her to love the Bible and love church, and if she's doing something that she hates, I think a negative connotation might be seen in everything Christian. That's what I would do anyway.

  2. That's kind of what I'm thinking. I just want to make sure. I'm still making Angela, though, cause she doesn't want to do anything at all. She just wants to be lazy.
