He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

What's in a name?

There is an ongoing conversation in our house. It took forever for Noah to learn to say Czorapinski. For those of you that don't know us personaly, you pronounce it Zora-pin-ski. He was Noah Pinski for the longest time. Adam and Joshua even know him as Noah Czorapinski on occassion. But ask Adam if he is Adam Czorapinski or Adam Pinski even and you will get a NO. He is Adam, the boy.

Tonight the boys were putting away their shoes. I have three bins by the front door and each is labeled with one of their names. Adam was reading the labels tonight. We got a Noah Czorapinski, finally an Adam Czorapinski, but just a Joshua. When I asked if it was Joshua Czorapinki he said, "No. Just Joshua." Then, Joshua decides to have a conversation and explain that he is a Czorapinski too. He said "I am Joshua Czorapinski. I am not Joshua, the boy!" This could go on for years.

Now try to ask Adam and Joshua if they are twins. You'll get an even bigger laugh out of that one.

Oh, and was that enough Czorapinski's for you? :-)

I love all the silly things kids say...it's one of my favorite parts of being a mom! Glad the fever didn't require a trip and hope Adam is feeling better!
