Community Service

This morning we did a little community service. We've been enjoying the exquisite fall foliage on our neighbors tree and felt it was our civic duty to rake the leaves. Would you take a look at that wrist action?

Here's a look at the finished product. Nearly an entire grocery sack full of foliage.
And last but not least, a little election coverage...it is so cute. This morning I asked the boys what was happening today. They said we are getting a new President. One said John McCain and the other said Obamba ( like la bamba). I thought it was really cute hearing them say the candidates names. While we were playing outside, one of the boys pulled the little flag out of the yard from the people who treat our grass for weeds, and he held it up and said, "The United States of America!" Maybe you had to be there, but it was dang funny.

My husband is very funny and very opinionated. He wouldn't even let me watch The Today Show this morning because they give too much liberal coverage. Tonight we are having a Fox News watch party complete with Taco Soup, Fritos and Cheddar Cheese!

Election day is always so exciting to me. I can't wait to see who God has put in place to be our next President. I'm studying Moses right now, and the timing is great. Moses is leading his people into the desert with the end result being their deliverance.

We live in a very pampered country. It's interesting to see where God is leading us now. Regardless of who wins today, maybe we are being led into the desert for a time of wandering, but it's OK because our deliverance is sure.

Well, I'm going to get my Chick-fil-A on. See ya!

That is cute! And wow! I couldn't have even told you who the president was at that age.

We are trying to leave enough leaves for the 6 boys to play in over T-giving.
We mulched on Fri. and again tiday. Hopefully the weather will be nice enough to have a leaf playtime.[then they can rake]
