Fluffy and Other Things

The boys have taken to calling Berean "Fluffy". I think it comes from the new favorite movie line from "Despicable Me" - you know the one, "It's so fluffy I am going to die!!"- Agnes.

When they pray at night they pray for Daddy, Mommy, Deacon, Roman, Lincoln and Fluffy. It sounds like we have a cat. And we don't. And we won't. Despite the boys new plan to get a dog, a cat and a hamster. No way. I don't need that in my life.

I am looking forward to the ends of things. You know,

-the end of Awana

-the end of winter

-the end of homeschool classes

-the end of school

-the end of preschool

-the end of ECFE

-the end of youth group

-the end of swimming

Basketball has ended. The snow has started to melt. The spring is when I can work on my yard, and I want to start.

The summer is when we can have fun, and I am planning to do a lot of fun stuff this summer. We are still going to do some school this summer, but we are going to make a lot of time for friends, parks and swimming.

We are going to go on adventures and do exploring and biking. This winter has made me determined to make the most of summer. Even if it means getting out of our routine, skipping naps and letting the housework pile up.

I can't wait.

"Fluffy" reminds me of a couple of kids whose names were Phaedra and Dustin. Their nicknames: Puff and Dusty. Sounds like cats for sure.

Although it's cute for the boys to have come up with it, hopefully the monicker will be short-lived!

Deacon said just this morning, "I think I may call her Fluffy for the rest of her life!" We'll see...

A dog, a cat, and a hamster, huh? Sounds like someone might have to tell the boys that while art imitates life, life need not imitate art.
