To catch everyone up

Well I feel as though I have been out of commission the last couple of days. On July 4, me and Brad woke up and decided to rip the carpet out of the family room. This has been something we have wanted to do for a while, but always assumed we would have some sort of plan. After taking the carpet up we decided to stain the concrete. The family room use to be the back patio and they closed it in and made a room. It has a step down going into it (what use to be the porch step) and we decided to tile that. It took us a week to get everything done, including sanding the concrete before applying the stain. My house was turned absolutely upside down for a week! We finally got everything done yesterday and I will get some pictures up soon so everyone can see how it turned out.

I have also been trying to get ready for VBS which is next week. I am teaching the 2-4 year olds. Last year this was one of the biggest classes with as many as 35 kids some nights! I am decorating my room in a zoo theme, which I'm sure is totally appropriate.

On to funnier news. Last night we had told the kids to go brush their teeth and go potty to get ready for bed. After a few minutes, Carley came in and said Jacob was crying. Me and Brad went in there to find out the problem and you will never believe what he said. He told us that he was sad because he wanted to live with us forever and never wanted to leave home. I was totally floored; this came so out of the blue. Of course his crying lead Miss Drama to crying and we spent 30 minutes trying to explain how life was suppose to work. I couldn't help but laugh. I told Brad I wish I could record that conversation and play it back in 10 years when they hate us and are dying to move out! Leave it to children to say the craziest things!
