Car insurance

A bedtime prayer, by R.

All in good time

The boys are aware that we can fly back to be with Dad once he has a new job.  They have been praying for his job interviews and seem to understand the connection between the job and our return trip home.

B, praying  — Dear Jesus, please let Daddy do well on his -what’s it called again?

Mom — Interview.

B — Right.  Interview.  And please let him get a job before we go back to school next week.  In Jesus’ name, amen.


Make a good impression

Thank you for me

Message in a prayer

Dad has sent belated birthday presents to the boys via Auntie Kate.  They are thrilled!

At bedtime, praying:

Cure for boredom

B — … and thank you that we have a Mommy and a Daddy to keep us company.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
