and I'm not complaining. It will be winter soon enough. We went to church this morning and heard a wonderful message on communion. Communion is so important for followers of Jesus. Read here for a great article about it.
Jesse's sis got a new dog...a very cute Saint/Newfoundland mix. He will get huge! He is 5 months old, black and white and just adorable. I am still missing my Ollie and really not ready for a replacement (if ever). I really would like to be in the country before getting a dog, but don't see that happening any time soon. I think the kids (especially the older 3) were heart broken over Ollie and Julia said that she can't bear to go through that again.
I had a hard time with my oldest this afternoon. He has a ton of legos sitting in the basement and I brought up a few for the little kids. He went ballistic! He did not want them playing with them...I can't explain it. He does not play with them ever or care about them (legos). The little boys just love them. He is 17 and a handfull. My battles with him could be seen by some as minor but they can be consuming.
