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

Gotta Get A Life Plan

Boy oh boy have we been busy.  Between the holidays and just keeping up with three growing boys I'm exhausted.  I know now not to promise I will update this blog just like I know not to promise that I'm going to lose weight.  It'll happen when it will happen!  But, so much has been going on that I thought I would sit down and share.

First, Adam and Joshua have been losing teeth left and right.  That is, left and right both top and bottom.

Noah is almost as tall as me which isn't hard but come on.  The kid is only 8!

Jeff started with a new company back in December and although he's doing the same exact job at the same exact desk, the move provides better insurance and as you all know, that means a lot to our family.  And, I've been trying to keep up with the gang and keep everyone in order.  I'm still trying.

Anyway, I can't not write about a Czorapinski moment so here's on you may enjoy.

You know when I was a child I wanted to be an astronaut, a music teacher and a lawyer.  I thought about getting married and what my kids would be like.  Of course, they were all dreams and I never could have predicted how my life has turned out.  Joshua on the other hand has a good grasp on life.  He's got a "life plan."

The other night at dinner we were doing our usual how was your day conversation when Joshua tells us he has a life plan.  I asked him about it and he went into great detail about taking his wife to the beach and getting down on one knee with a ring (thanks to the Smyth commercials he will have a better background for a proposal than his father did) and make googly eyes at her (that's what I tell the boys they have to do to girls they like).  He told us he was going to have either "one, two, three or four kids, maybe five" and that he wanted to be a doctor that helps kids with cancer.  He asked me if I thought it was a good life plan.  I told him "no Joshua, I think it's a great one!"  Thinking that the other two boys may want to tell me about what they want to do when they get older, I look at them and ask if they have a life plan.  Noah says "I don't know."  Adam on the other hand says, "I think I'll just camp!"

Guess we'll be working on some of those life plans!
