My boy let the church know tonight that he believes that he is a sinner, he could not be good enough to live with God, Jesus died and came back to life so that God would forgive his sins, and he wants Jesus to be the boss of his life.
This week Jake has become obsessed with rope and knots. He is tying everything and everybody in knots. Jim went to the store and bought him some REAL rope instead of the string he was using from his toys.
Jim then taught him how to tie a slip knot. Jake tied slip knots to Anna Kate’s play kitchen and all of her doors. However, my favorite was when he tied the oven door to the paper towel holder which is ACROSS the kitchen. Jim wasn’t too happy when he couldn’t get to the trash can without playing limbo.
This is just one of the many “normal” things that happen in the Perdue home.
I hope to get a picture of something or someone tied up soon.
This summer has been going by so quickly. We have been away from home more than we have been home. However, last week was our last trip away from home.
We celebrated our vacation at Jackson Lake with Jim’s family. This is our family vacation each year. This week always provides loads of fun for all of the cousins and some relaxation for the parents.
We arrived on Monday and left early Friday morning. Jim had to get back to perform a wedding ceremony on Friday night. This week provided us with many memories and maybe a new tradition or two.
This year included a new adventure for our boys. Both of them tried skiing. Jake did get up on the skis. I think they did really well for 5 and 3 and only going to the lake once a year. Hopefully, we can progress next year.
This is life at the lake with 10 kiddos.
For the second year in a row, we were able to enjoy a helicopter ride around Lake Jackson.
