And so Dad, I'm taking a brief reprieve from the mountains of laundry to share a couple of quotes.
Talia: (Struggling to fix the mismatched buttons on her shirt.) These buttons are kinda crabby!
Talia: (Planning our backyard trampoline campout.) We can do it as long as it's not raining or thundering or tornadoing of volcanoing.
Fortunately for us all, the weather did not tornado nor volcano, although the kids got so many bug bites that Brooklyn's teacher asked if she had chicken pox.
While Eli has acquired many new words lately (his favorites being bubbles and ball), he still persists on saying "Da" for "Yes." I do believe that he's the first in the family to speak Russian.
And last but not least, I recently came across this quote that I jotted down months ago.
Mom: (During a Family Home Evening Lesson.) Is that something you'd like--eternal life with Heavenly Father?
Talia: Well, I'd like to go to Disneyland.
Like I said, Dad, this one's for you.
