From The Jewel Box # 22

This past Monday night our family had an appointment at the hospital in preparation for the impending birth of our third child. We decided to make it a family date night and took the kids to Carino’s Italian Grill. They’ve got this amazing deal on Monday nights where you buy a “family meal” for the price of the single entree.’ The family meal feeds at least three adults and is quite enough for me, Becky and our two kids.

The dish we had on Monday night was called Chicken Milano which included four chicken breasts covered with ham, cheese and a generous portion of noodles with Alfredo sauce. Mmmmm, Alfredo sauce! Me and Alf get along real nice!

As we were eating, our daughter said the following about our meal;

“This is so good, I can’t keep my taste buds off of it!”

Our Daughter’s First Ballet Recital

A post from Becky-

Thursday night was the first dress rehearsal for our daughter’s first real ballet recital. It was a situation where moms were not allowed backstage, the staff of the SA Parks and Recreation along with the dance teachers stayed with the kids. I told our daughter before we left that she would be backstage for a long time just waiting with the girls from her class, so she could pack a little backpack of things to do, maybe crayons and coloring books to share. Totally on her own, she chose a Bible out of our kids Bible basket and said she wanted to take a Bible with to tell stories about Jesus. Of course, I did not object!

After rehearsal when I picked her up, I immediately started talking to her and encouraging her regarding how well she danced for their number. She was excited and said thank you, but then she started telling me how she had been reading Bible stories to some of her friends. She told me she had asked them if they loved Jesus. She also told me she talked to them about heaven and going there and also about about hell and how it was called the lake of fire and how her brother thinks there must be fire ants there who bite a lot and how you had to trust Jesus to forgive your sins. She told me that while she was talking, it was just a few girls from her class, but then more girls from other classes started coming over too and sitting in the group and listening. Her eyes looked the most excited when she said, “Mommy, it felt like the whole world was listening!” This made me more proud than any turn or tutu ever could!

“Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman (or girl) who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Here is the whole ballet number.

Our four year old son was outside and was getting use to his new bike. He almost fell off his bike and said,

“If I crash, I could fall and break my bone head.”

Here is a deep thought from our daughter from a couple of years ago.

“When I dream, I imaginate things that are pretend.”

Wow, man. That’s, like, philosophical….

When our son was 3 1/2 years old, he was still having trouble pronouncing his “L’s.” They usually come out as an “R” or a “W.” He was trying to sing a song and it came out;

“I’m gonna crap when the Spirit says crap,
I’m gonna crap when the Spirit says crap,
I’m gonna crap when the Spirit says crap,
and obey the Spirit of the Word!”
