Couldn't make this up

In a random moment while getting ready for bed Samuel announced, "I'm going to change my socks every day 'til Jesus comes back." Oh, these kiddos make me smile...

I love when Samuel speaks...

In a recent prayer Samuel was "thankful for Kansas", essentially so that they could keep all the tornados.

When I mentioned at home that our cohort lost a classmate after last semester Samuel sat quietly. Then he asked me if we looked everywhere for her.

In the spirit of the Olympics and having fun with the new wii game we taught Samuel how to ski jump with the balance board. He told my mom about it but it went more like, "I did the new game and I was a snowball but not every time". We had to fill in the gap. When the mii character falls off of the jump it tumbles down the hill and forms a large snowball around the person. After some practice Samuel was able to go from snowball to successful.

Samuel still tells me almost every day that we're best buddies.

Vitual hide and seek

Mom? Mom! MOMMY! MOMMMMMEEEEEEE!! Where arrrrrrre you?

Since my last post McKenna turned 5, we managed to make it through finals and a miserable retail schedule, celebrated a wonderful Christmas, Samuel turned 4, 24 started again, and I started my last semester of nursing school.

I'm not feeling very witty because I'm still in resume writing mode. Ugh.

I should document, though, that one of my favorite parts of Christmas was when Samuel made me an ornament that said, "Hallelujah! I love you! I hope you don't get in a tornado. Love, Samuel"

Countdown to graduation...Three months and 6 days
