Lock Down...

A rare ALMOST happy moment :)

     This summer vacation thing is very different this year. The kids are fighting, yelling, speaking hatefully, not loving each other, out to "win" over each other, crying, blah, blah, blah. I can't even bear to write it all out!!!!
     I flipped out about a week and a half ago and put our family on Lock Down! NO tv. NO movies. NO screen time. NO book accept the Bible. NO playing with friends. UNTIL, there is a shift in our family.
     The shift has started! There has been more peace, less fighting and even more forgiveness with less yelling! Awwwww, the sound of a family that LOVES each other :)
     And, today I caved. Why? Because of the NEIGHBORHOOD GARAGE SALE and all the talking, and asking of questions, and wanting to shop, the asking of questions, the whining, the sadness, the asking of questions. Did I already say that?!
     And just as I expected, things got worse after the movie. More yelling, hitting, fighting, even Jojo (the 17 month old was worse!) I knew it wasn't a good idea :/
So, tomorrow is the second day of our sale. Bubba will be home to help, PRAISE GOD!! But, no caving this time!!!
Jesus HELP ME!!!!
