{Pretty,Happy, Funny, Real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~  


"Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!"
Psalm 47:1

Although I have a love/hate relationship with kids sports as a soccer player myself I love to see them having fun, I love the smell of the grass, the way it feels under my feet and now a days their huge smiles during the end of practice.


We got the game Speed! this week . Bullet has busily been organizing lots of Speed Tournaments between sisters and parents. I am happy to report that I am still the Grand Master of the game, but even happier to report that these kids are getting faster with the math computations!


So this is the youngest Aspired Child. She is 5 minutes younger then her twin brother. She is also the most vocal of the children so during nap time she was sent to my room to "nap". Really, so she'd wouldn't be able to keep her older brother up with her cute but incessant chatter. It was very quiet in my room and I thought she had gone to sleep. I was as you can see mistaken. She had instead applied what she deemed to be an appropriate amount of mascara around her eyes. Thankfully, I was able to  not  to bust out laughing until I was safely out of the room. So this is what happens at nap time here at Aspired Living.

“Joy is the serious business of Heaven.” ~ C. S. Lewis


The huge mess we made in the twins room as we painted it to get ready to show. But I think Bubba probably appreciates that the walls of his room are no longer pink.
