I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Sleepover - part 1

 Canaan has a friend sleeping over tonight. This is the first time we have tried this adventure. Canaan spent the night at a friend's house once, but this is the first time he has had a friend spend the night with him. 
 They had a fabulous time playing this evening, ate dinner, read stories, said their bedtime prayers...
 Then they started to talk, and talk, and talk. 
 Andy told them to be quiet. 
 I told them to be quiet. 
 Finally Canaan announced, "This sleepover thing is not as fun as I thought it would be. You just go to sleep!"

 It seems that no one had informed him of that fact! 

We finally separated them into different rooms, leaving Zion, who had peacefully slept through all of the talking, in the bunkbed with our friend Cole, and putting Canaan in the "guest room". Around 9:45, all was finally quiet. They are all dreaming about breakfast now - I guess I should head to bed, and be ready to cook!

I thought about you guys all night!!!
Sorry about Cole not sleeping. I'm not at all surprised, though. Hopefully you guys will make it to co-op nice and refreshed!
