Weekend Update

Just a quick update, as our weekend is drawing to a close.

None of our home projects were completed this weekend.
As in Zero.
I don't even want to talk about it... all I'm going to say is this:
Our weekend time is just like sand sifting quickly through an hour glass. Before I know it, the weekend is over and my King Fish heads back out of town.  It stinks.
And I'm not gonna say anything else about it.
On a good note of things accomplished... I memorized the entire first chapter of James this weekend.

Seriously, I did!
I'm so stinkin' proud of myself. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, because we've been studying James and reading it every week. But, I in no way had it memorized. But like I said my friend Stephanie totally inspired me last Thursday night... and I set out to memorize the first chapter of James. I'll work on the next chapters in a few weeks.
As a cute side note, Small Fry is totally into Thomas the Tank Engine. We would really like to take him to see A Day Out with Thomas, but we aren't sure if we can swing it financially yet. Anyway, he loves Thomas and all his friends.
So this Sunday night driving home from church I asked the kids, "Who wants to hear mommy read James?" Which basically means recite James, as I was driving the car. One of the boys usually grabs the Bible to check and make sure I get all the verses correct.
So after "reading" James out loud for about 5-10 minutes, to just about the end, I asked how I did.
The boys all chorused "Great!!" and Small Fry piped in with:
"Read Gordon Mommy, Read Gordon!"
I let him know there was no book of Gordon in the Bible. :-)

Silly, precious boy!

Ha! Getting nothing accomplished during the weekend is so, so typical for us. Like you, we START a ton but the finishing just doesn't seem to happen. Like the others, I'm so impressed with your big feat! Small Fry sounds like such a cutie... he and Andrew would get along splendidly!
