Cutie Patooties.

This time 2 years ago these cute little boys were praying for their "vwuzzo and sistos in Eepee-opia" and now they are together forever. and Inseperable might I add.

The boys are 16 months apart so the twins and Josiah are in different grades. They are in two separate classes at our co-op on Fridays and every week Jeremiah goes through his speech of how he is so sad that Josiah isn't in their class and how he misses him all day and he wants Josiah in HIS class. Then James is all "Uh-huh" and "Yea" 's. Their teachers say the twins are always asking if they have extra crafts so they can take one to "their brother who is in the 5 year old class." God is just so amazing. He brought these little boys from Africa and Mexico to North Carolina to be brothers and very best friends. And they are always doing crazy things to their room like this... Soon after this blurry picture was taken, every inch of every wall was covered in a picture that they colored. When the walls were full they started to stretch across the room and surrounded the bunkbeds so they couldn't see out of the bottom bunk. They even made it across the ceiling. (with some help) It was quite impressive. Until bedtime and we couldn't find their beds. Here is a virtual tour... video And I just realized i never finished those videos from when mom was in africa. I realize now it was a bad idea to promise that the week before school started and the week our computer crashed. Maybe someday they'll make it on the blog.

Fun, fun.

This is what we do when we are bored. Sooo...we're never really bored because this is quite fun. James had his ear tubes out today and they drugged him up pretty good. He came home a little dizzy and an hour or so later began to tell me all about his time at the hospital. "I got to color on the bed! And decorate my mask! (they let the kids decorate the sleeping gas masks after? creative.) And I watched Handy Manny!..... And I don't think they ever took my tubes out!!!!!! I don't think they did!!!!"

The medicine worked. Here is the Jim himself being a ham on the far left. He gradually dropped from standing to leaning on the hay bale to resting his chin on his hand. I want to put him in a little box and keep him in my pocket. I will definitely be keeping everyone updated on all the Etaala news. Right now we're just working out a lot of details and the website is coming along! It's close!
