The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Silly bands are driving me silly!

Do you have this problem at your house?

You see why it's a "problem"?  These things are EVERYWHERE!!!!!

And this is the scene at my house almost every afternoon... behind closed doors, "insider" trading, as I like to call it.  If you have the "rare" bands, you're in power.  I hate what power brings out in people!

Just look at all that rubber.... money..... power.... fun.  These are the boys bestest friends on the planet.  They are like my fifth and sixth children.  They are here almost every day.  And the trading is serious business.  Even Connor knows which ones are rare, who has what, and which ones to trade for.  It's like kiddy currency.

By the way, the kids are all in disguise because we want to protect the identity of these powerful officials! :)

Proverbs 3:27 The Message translation
"Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God's hand for that person."

Too funny. My kids only have one pack that they had to share. I am glad they are getting into the trading :) Loved the pics.

I came across your blog searching silly bands, because my first graders are obsessed with them. I've decided that they are adorable and it was funny to read news articles about schools banning silly bands when it's just a fad. But I love your blog and the whole introduction about being a Christian mom and trying to make everything work. Thank you for blessing me today.
