Never a Dull Moment

Well, as we were recovering from viruses, poison ivy, and the flu we had a visitor arrive at our house. Would you believe this scary fellow got into the house while I was out grocery shopping and Matt was watching all five children? Not only that, but Matt was in the process of bathing the little girls when Lauren and Gabriel ran upstairs screaming the announcement of our visitor. Matt, my wonderful batman, corralled all the children to safety, got the bat locked up in the schoolroom and then proceeded to do business with him. Thankfully Matt won the battle. As a result of bats inhabiting our attic, our family of seven went on a last minute unplanned trip for five days. More about that in a future post................God uses all things for our good and His glory. Even in the midst of all the stress and exhaustion we had some fun unplanned for times during our time away.


  1. I love your perspective on things. I love you as well.

  2. Wow Ruth, did you all research the furry flying thing? Are his eyes facing back?
