Real Life Adventures

Who says being a Mom is dull? Last week Grant fell off his bike and got a concussion. This week after teaching the preschool Sunday School about the stoning of Stephen (How do you tell a bunch of 3 year olds about that one????) we tried to sit in church. Maren and Annie were trying to escape through the side door. When I brought them back, Maren made her displeasure known very loudly. We went out to the back. Maren found the cookies and dumped them all over the floor. While I was cleaning that up, Annie was climbing the stair railing, knocked over the missions display and set the globe sailing.

We left early to get ready for the Sunday School kids to come over for lunch and a trip to the Corn Maze next door. It was kind of crazy and there were a lot of people. The phone rang and it was the Sheriff's office asking if everything was ok. Well, apparently it was Fire Safety week in school and Abby decided to try calling 9-1-1. As I was profusely apologizing to the lady on the phone, the squad car pulled up. He told us when he saw all the cars he figured someone else would have called if there was really something wrong. He was really gracious and we offered him a hot dog, which he declined. What on earth was she thinking?

We walked to the Corn Maze and the kids ran around and had fun. They visited the sheep, goat and horses. The kids ate and went to bed.

We had a difficult confrontation situation later on that evening. I hate conflict and it makes me sick to my stomach but I know it had to be done. How was your day?

These are the adventures of a real life Mommy Missionary!
