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

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Rocks in the wash

I have learned the hard way recently that small boys, interesting items discovered on the ground, and laundry do not mix well.
 Pockets can't just have a cursory pat, or slight shake. We have reached that point in time in which every pocket, in every pair of pants must be completely and thoroughly checked.
 Or we end up with mini stuffed animals who take a bath, "fascinating" sticks that are baptized, and a flashlight that no longer works.

 All of this (shells, rocks and a stick, and I think there is a penny in there somewhere)
 fell out of Canaan's pants after one day walking around Charleston...

 My poor washing machine is going to earn it's keep in the next few years!

If it helps you any, my younger brother and my father both leave stuff in their pockets. Mom and I both have to double check their pockets to make sure nothing goes through the wash.

Aw! Gum and chapstick are the worst!

With my girls it was stickers, gum, lipstick, kleenex, hairbows AND rocks, sticks, and other shiny objects. I am not sure that stage ever really ends, just changes as they grow. Now it is more like phone numbers, secret codes, business cards, letters that caem in the mail or need to be sent and photos of friends.

I see my daughter beat me to the comment, but I was actually going to say that I find tissues to be the worst. Somehow one tissue can become 1,000 tiny pieces that stick to every piece of clothing in the laundry.
