 Just a few Iowa highlights -part 1 (yes, that does mean that there will likely be several, kind of like when you were little and your grandparents would make you sit through a slide show of their vacation)

We are home from Iowa and grinning over the wonderful memories we made over the past nine days. While I get re-acclimated with some semblance of a schedule I am going to leave you with a picture story. I will interpret for you.

 On vacation day seven Kai meets a sweet little girl and the mamas talk of an arranged marriage and how cute their full-heads-of-curly-haired kids will be.


Kai realizes that in two short days he will be 500 miles away from this adorable miss Lucy.

He breaks down into tears.

"But mom - she is so cute. She is so girly. She has a pink bow. She is surrounded by boys here and I don't stand a chance once we get back to Michigan. I think I love her. Mom, she has a pink bow. We don't have stuff like that around here. sob. sob "

Oh, that is so adorable! Don't worry, Kai. She won't find anyone that suits her quite like you do! I'll make sure to keep Tate away... ;)

We would have the MOST adorable grand babies. And they each would have THE BEST mothers-in-law. :)

So fun to see you my friend and yay for arranged marriages!

Yep. Adorable!

P.S. Sarah said you're taking applications for wives...I told her I've got a couple of candidates for ya :) I think they're gonna be pretty cute though so your boys will have to fight it out ;)

Just left a comment on Sarah's blog saying that an arranged marriage would be totally appropriate for your two little precious sweethearts.

don't know how I even found myself here reading a most poignant mom's thoughts, hopes, dreams and desires for her children. I figure God had a hand in this. So often, I disregard what God has done in my life, how blessed I am. I was blessed by your intimate thoughts and your joyfulness. I hope you do not mind...I would like to put a quote from your thoughts on facebook. It is "You will be tempted. Arm yourself. And when you give in, come running back." I am sure it must be scripture based.

Thank you. Blessings to you and your family
