But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Grateful for books and quiet (relatively)

Will isn't so quiet while reading because he loves doing sound effects and "reading" aloud. He has the world's scariest "MOOOOOOO!!!!!" for cows. He does it LOUD and deep in his throat, including during church last Sunday, enough that we could easily hear him (he was in the nursery) and had to keep back our giggles.

Marcie tried to read "Marcie's book" to Gracie tonight. Gracie didn't want to sit and be read to, even though Marcie pursued her with the book, trying to tempt her.

The kids seem to really have taken off in their group play. They make up games that they all play together, laughing hysterically and not squabbling nearly as much as before. One game involves somersaulting into Marcie's crib and landing on their backs. Another involves falling down as dramatically as possible, all in a row, and catching themselves at the last moment with their hands. They're very good at it! David started that one. They also love to dance together and wrestle and play follow-the-leader through obstacle courses usually built by their brother and involving couch cushions. They go round and round and round, laughing all the way. Another favorite activity is climbing through the holes in the wide elastic mesh of our couch seat (it's got that instead of plywood so that the bottom seat has more "give" and is more comfy). The mesh moves enough so they can wriggle through, and they all think it's hilarious. They also used to love climbing onto the changing table, but two nights ago it fell over almost on top of them (I was right there and could grab it), so they've learned their lesson - I hope. It's lightweight enough not to pose any real danger, but it scared them! A good scare is a good thing now and then. :)

You can see Will's lips making the "choo-choo" sound!
