Fun in the New Room

It isn't finished yet, but as far as far as Iain is concerned, it may as well be. This morning, he got to wander around in there for the first time and he LOVED it. Can you tell by the grin that this boy likes nothing better than lots of room to run and play? Too cute!


As far as the house goes, we're painting this weekend (yay!) and will be working on floors and electric next week. It's coming together.

A few cute Iain stories:
When we pray for a meal, we hold hands around the table. Iain likes praying - he reaches his hands out to us and looks at the ground (what is down there, anyway? he thinks). Then after we say amen, we try to get him to say it, too. Usually he does ("mmmmen!"), but a few times, apparently Jeremy's prayers have been too short or something. When we finish, Iain says "g-na, g-na!" ("again, again!") and reaches out his hands. So we pray again. Then, he is satisfied and we can eat. :)

Today, Iain and I were driving in the van - and it was raining. Iain was watching the windshield-wipers. Every time they would go, he'd say "g-na, g-na!" and lo and behold, they'd go again! He thought it was very clever. He sure makes me laugh.

Ha ha...funny kid that one. In the second picture it looks like his leg is mis-shaped! Need help this weekend? I think I am available...

Did I tell you? Are the white walls simply wonderful? Who cares if it's only primer!

Himself seems determined to head your way this weekend. Prepare to be amused. He's one of those who would rather do it himself than deal with "help," but isn't that true of most of us? Hmmmm. . . sounds like a devotional!

The cookies were quickly consumed and delicious. Thank you!

HA! The windshield wiper story made me laugh out loud! How clever he is- on that we can all agree! How delightful it is to watch our children learn of the world around them!
