The Devil is DUMB!

We started out here last night at this sweet country Baptist church where my father-in-law accepted Christ as his savior as a boy.
They are having a revival this week & we were all ready to attend our second night. All the kids were fed, bathed and in matching outfits-I WAS DOING SO GOOD! AND, we were on time!
THEN THE DEVIL REARED HIS UGLY HEAD as soon as Wy Wy "tripped" and fell out of our party bus-gashing his forehead and road rashing his little sweet face. Luckily, he was the first out so no other unstrapping was needed. We all JUMPED back in the bus and headed for the ER!He screamed all the way there so I held him (along with a diaper on his head to soak up the blood)-SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO. It definitely helped that he had THE CAPTAIN'S hand to hold (as he drove) all the way there. The Captain told the kids Satan didn't want us at church-smart guy.A little super glue & ice cream and he was ALL BETTER! He was more upset about ripping his jeans and missing church than his head!
The blessing of the night was just being together AS A FAMILY. Even if it wasn't a major tragedy, I'm just so thankful that we don't have our kids in TONS of world-pushed activities and we can spend evenings together like this-as it should be.We then turned off all the lights and checked OUR PEEPS! Seems out of 22 eggs-20 have chicks in them-LORD HELP ME!
What on earth am I going to do with 20 chickens. This is the best picture I could get of one of BIT BUTS EGGS-you can distinctly see the veins-little miracles! THE DEVIL AIN'T STOPPIN US TONIGHT! WE'RE GOIN' BACK!

Oh I felt so badly seeing his sweet face so sad...and head injuries always bleed a lot, so they are scary! What a beautiful family you have! We want chickens so badly so I will be anxious to see your eggs hatch! :-)

GO BACK friend, kick that nasty enemy in the bee-hind! So glad the accident was not too serious--amazing what ice-cream can do to make things better :)

Heck--what in the world are you going to do with all those chicks? Is life NOT busy enough for you? (don't answer that) :)

Oh goodness Jenn!

So glad he is ok!

Like you said I'm glad we are not involved in tons of worldly activities either or even too many church things that stop of us from just being together!

Hugs and love - Jill

Thank God for "super glue" last March daddy had to use some on one of our own's chin. I LOVE the ice cream picture all together along the bar:) Glad you had a wonderful family evening together! We are longing for some of those in life's crazy schedule right now:) Love the egg pictures too! Thanks for sharing! Our "Captillers" are growing like crazy and getting "fat!"
Blessings,
Gayly

Awww, poor WyWy....I'm so glad he's o.k. That's too cute that he was more worried about his jeans and missing church than about the gash in his head...kids are so resilient! Can't wait to see all the chicks! :o)
