Mike was out of town for a funeral this weekend. I stayed at home with the kiddos because you never know what can happen with little ones at a funeral. This was my first extended period with 3 children by myself and the Lord was gracious with me. He provided me with wonderful community to have us over for dinner, help me keep my kiddos in line, and keep me company. I loved my Saturday morning on the sidewalk watching the neighborhood kids ride their bikes.
The Lord knew I needed to quiet my heart in the evenings after putting the kiddos to bed. He met me and reminded me of His deep love for me. So often I look to Mike to fill this need to be loved and having him gone was just what I needed to remember that it is God who loves me perfectly and completely. Being filled with this love I was able to lavish love on my three Littles.

Ezekiel joined in the fun.

Love these kiddos!
Only in Minnesota in May do we get a few inches of snow one day, more snow the next then three days later we’re out in our swimming suits. Our spring was terrible. I feel like I shoveled more in April than I had all winter. The gray skies and the dreary weather matched my spirits, though I would have enjoyed some fun in the sun.
Snow on May 3.
After such a gross spring we celebrated the warmth only as Minnesotans do. We pulled out our swimming suits and the hose and had ourselves a good ‘ole time. I sprayed some shaving cream on our slide and let the kids have a go. It really wasn’t as fun as it sounds. I thought it would provide hours of entertainment and big poofy messes of shaving cream. But the shaving cream wiped off the slide each time a kid slid down. Eh, it was worth a try.
Getting ready for some messy fun!
Cleaning the slide with her bottom and some shaving cream.
Little man isn’t too sure what to think of it. He thinks it’s “messy”
But the Little Lady sure enjoyed getting a little messy.
Shaving cream is becoming one of our favorites. It’s fairly easy to clean and the kids enjoy getting a little “messy.” Try it out with your little ones!
