Windy Wednesday

The wind has been ferocious today! It started sometime in the middle of the night. Loud, thunderous, strong wind! I thought a storm had blown in & I woke up in a panic & ran to open the back door so our dog could come sleep in the laundry room. When I opened the sliding back door, the wind blew in so strong that it knocked down a cereal box I had left sitting on the kitchen island. Scared the crud out of me, since I was half asleep! Soon after I let our dog, Dallas, inside, the kids started trickling down the stairs, one by one, into our bed. I'm sure they thought there was a storm outside also. You could hear the windows rattling, the wind whistling and the low hum of wind coming from our fireplace. And, it's still going on as I type...

Anytime it's windy like this, Sammy & I laugh about a funny memory we have of Samuel. Soon after his 3rd birthday, we bought a swingset for the backyard. One day, he was out there trying his best to swing straight, but the wind kept blowing him from side to side. He was getting extremely frustrated, so I explained to him that we had no control over the wind, only God does. After processing this information, he finally looked up to the sky & yelled as loud as he could, "STOP IT WINDY!"

That's pretty funny.

Question: when the kids climbed in your bed, did you sing "My Favorite Things?" and have a pillow fight?

Too cute. I can't wait to hear all the cute things Kimber and Ellie and Caleb are going to say.

Susan, I most definitely did not sing "My Favorite Things" & have a pillow fight. It was more like, "Ewwww... somebody stinks! Scoot over!"
