Currently a "bushel of boys" that I manage! While being a full-time mom and wife, I love to bake nearly anything and everything (while tasting along the way), exercise each day and challenge my body, spend time with family and friends, and most all ... enjoy the gifts and moments I get each day with my husband and four boys: Jonah, Reuben, Matthias, and Abram. Through it all, I want to come out with a smile and a heart directed towards the Lord.

Only Boys ...
Boys are just ... well ... BOYS.
But in case you need convincing ... case in point:
Both boys are sitting on the couch, sharing a snack of Fruit Loops.
Jonah suddenly FLIES off the couch,
"I need to go poopy!!!!!"
"Well, then, go!" "No, Mommy. I need your help!"
So, we rush off down the hall.
Sit him on the toilet.
I leave him to do his business.
A minute later ...
"Mommy, can you come here?"
"Jonah, Mommy will come to help you finish.
I am just here in the living room"
(Aside to Eli - he just wants me to smell it.
Smell the stinky bathroom.
No reason excepting he is a boy.
Eli doesn't believe this ... but ...)
"But, Mommy, can you just come here for a second?" "Why?"
"I just need to show you something really quick."
So, I trudge down the hallway,
walk into the bathroom,
"What did you want to show me?"
A devious grin ... and ... "Now smell!"
Yes. This is the same child who daily requests that I smell his feet.
