A few weeks ago I mentioned that we were looking to hire some staff. I had also mentioned to the Lord that we really, really, really, need the looking to be easy at this season in our lives. =)
Well I also wrote a post a few weeks ago that our dear friends, Steve and Lori, (who also happen to be our daughter Abi’s in-laws) came with six of their kids for a visit. That visit led to hire #1. Yippee Jesus! Steve is joining our staff and together we will partner to see this Four Corners area of Colorado have the opportunity to meet Christ and grow together. We are so grateful for God’s gracious hand in it all.
We have since hired one more new staff person and are interviewing again this week-end. More on all that before long, I pray! =)
Anyway, today I was on the phone with Steve talking about possible rentals in the area. We talked for a quite awhile but the kids (only Elijah and Elizabeth were home) were getting louder in our very echoey, high-ceiling home as they ate their lunch. Just before lunch Elizabeth had pulled out a ton of stuff from the fridge and put it in front of her to assist in her eating time I supposed. No harm. I was right there…..
Except when they grew so loud that I withdrew to the laundry room while still talking to Steve. Amazingly those two kiddos grew very quiet in a matter of a couple of minutes….and no, call me crazy but I haven’t fully remembered the “when toddlers are quiet, better go check and see” rule…….I am getting a refresher course though….cause I came out and found this…..
Yeah, I think I don’t have enough ketchup right here…..
And it smells so good all over my high chair….on top of the Italian dressing that I poured all over the entire thing….
