growing boys

holy week was amazing, exhausting, powerful, and wonderful. a marathon of ministry. my boss and 4 of the pastors told me to get out of town for a week. left the cleanup to my co-workers. HA!

went to missouri after easter to spend some time with my nephews. julie had ankle surgery 5 weeks ago and is SUPPOSED to be taking it easy. as a physical therapist she knows what she can and can't do, and i swear she can hop faster than i can walk. anyway....the boys are 5, almost 3, and almost 1 i can't believe the funny things they do and say. obsessed with 'STAR WARS', 'The Lion King', and Mickey Mouse, they love to hear my Yoda, Puumba, and Mickey voices.

the other boys in my life, spock and kirk, are growing fast too!

they no longer look kitten-y they are very much teenagers. i have been spending very little time with them due to work and i think they are taking it out on me by chewing where they shouldn't be chewing, getting into boxes and containers that are NOT for kittens, and just generally being silly.

here's spock demonstrating what he thinks is the proper place for scraps and kittens.

where i've been....

where have i been the past month? i'm taking on more responsibilities in more departments of the church-and that's a good things-but it also means less time for outside activities like; doing interesting things, photographing those things, and writing about them.

i have been wracking my brain to come up with a suitable item for the japan auction, and i think i have settled on one, now just to find the time to make it. this week at church (which started today with Palm Sunday) i am going to work about 80 hours, give or take. maundy thursday and good friday we're expecting over 1800 people to come to the three services we hold...

here's a quick little video that i not only helped to edit, but that gives you an idea of what kind of stuff i'm working on. this is last year's Palm Sunday- we had about 250 kids participate today over the two services.
