the boy who is always in a battle.

luke's imagination has taken off lately… and i LOVE hearing him play.  he has always been bound to playing in mary's pretend worlds… so he has played a lot of baby and school!  but something changed in the last few weeks and he is pretending more and more by himself (he's definitely an extrovert so playing alone is NOT his strong suit).  i love watching how he can turn anything into a battle… his sound effects, his expressions, his funny battle conversations… i love them.  

yesterday i just sat and took photos of him as he had a car battle.  

here some of the mean battle faces we see  

having a boy is so much fun… 

except for time (mid-writing a post about how much fun it is to have a boy) he swung the sword at me and we had to have a long "talk" about anger, self-control and honoring mommy.  :)

come to Me

I am the Lord your God, I go before you now
I stand beside you, I'm all around you
Though you feel I'm far away, I'm closer than your breathe
I am with you more than you know

I am the Lord your peace, no evil will conquer you
So steady now your heart and mind, come into my rest
Oh, let your faith arise, lift up your weary head
I am with you wherever you go

Come to me, I'm all you need. 
Come to me, I'm everything.
Come to me, I'm all you need.
Come to me, I'm your everything.

I am your anchor, in the wind and waves
I am your steadfast so don't be afraid
Though your heart and flesh may fail you, I'm your faithful strength
And I am with you wherever you go… 

Come to me, I'm all you need.  
Come to me, I'm your everything 
Come to me, I'm all you need.
Come to me, I'm your everything

Don't look to right or to the left, keep your eyes on me
You will not shaken, you will not be moved
I am the hand to hold, I am the truth, I am the way
Just come to me, come to me because I'm all that you need.

puddle time!

we are in the middle of rainy season…. and it's a lot of rain and puddles.  my kids love to play in the dirty puddles and i love that they have fun doing it.  we don't have a yard so this is where we play.  

this is luke's face when he was "asking" me if he could just go ahead and sit in the puddle.  it's his mischievous smile and he does it a lot. 

after they joyously ran through the puddles over and over again (and luke sat in it) we discovered that it was full of worms that came up from between the cracks in the brick road.  SICK!  we moved to the puddles of pavement and were free of worms.  

then we went and picked up luke's buddy, alif.  we love him. 

i'm learning a new way to focus my camera when the subject is quickly moving… so i've been practicing of my running and jumping kids.  more to come…
