I am the author of this blog -- a mom to 3 boys and 1 girl, a wife, a daughter, a friend, a co-worker, a scrapbooker (not as much lately as I'd like to), and a woman who loves people and longs to make a difference in others' lives. What I'm NOT is perfect. I am flawed and I'm not ashamed to admit that here. Please enjoy the stories of our "fully caffeinated" lives.
He's my first-born -- 12 years old, going into 6th grade, intelligent, logical but still full of emotion, caring, enjoys video games, reading, math, science, playing with friends, singing (most of the time), and loves with his whole heart.
My only daughter -- 10 years old, going into 5th grade, a "mini-me", friendly and outgoing, loves being with friends, dancing, singing, acting, doing all things "girly", math, reading, school, very concerned about others and their feelings, loves having girl time with me, but loves Jesus more.
My middle child -- 9 years old, going into 4th grade, has always been quite laid back and easy going, loves math, playing with friends, some video games, watching football with me, wants to be a wrestler or "muscle man" when he grows up, karate, fun loving, sweet, and has such a tender heart.
My youngest -- 5 years old, going into kindergarten, began talking late but has blossomed incredibly, loves to cuddle, play games, put puzzles together, look at books, keep up with his big brothers, color, play with friends, go to Chuck E Cheese, loves animals, and prays the most tender, heartfelt prayers of any little one I know.
This is what I came down the stairs to see this morning before getting ready for church. Eli loves loves LOVES our cat, Oreo. And this is one of the first times she has cuddled up with him. She must know his birthday is tomorrow!
