Q & A~
I apologize for being so bad about answering questions. I am never sure whether or not to answer them in the Comment Section or as a new post.. and then I don't answer, but the questions haunt me in the night. Please forgive me for being so slow to answer.
If You have a question please leave it, and I'll try to answer ;o)
*Totally random pictures added just because.
1. Are you and Jim crazy?
I have received this question several times lately (mainly in real life) so I thought I would answer.
Yes. Maybe. No. Are we crazy? I 'm not sure.
Last week our Youth group went to Ecuador for a Mission Trip. Our Youth Pastor shared with me that at one point the children they were ministering to were singing to them, and a chaperone leaned over and said, "Jim and Renee don't seem quite so crazy anymore... do they?"
All of our children are a precious blessing to us. We are so honored to have each one in our home.
So, we may be crazy, but we are also blessed.
2. Where do you get your children's bathing suits from? Where did you get your Airplane Teeter Totter from?
BJ's Wholesale Club. It is probably the answer to most any purchasing question for our family. They love us at BJ's, and we love BJ's.
3. Do Eben and Joel speak English?
Their English is amazing. They are shy with people initially so you might not know it, but they speak very well.
We do have our little cultural quirks. Someone was speaking about feeding the children goldfish, and as we walked away Eben said, "Mama WHY would they feed the children goldfish?" I showed him the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish the next time we were at the store to prove that there are not crazy live fish feeding Orbunis here in America .
Eben and Joel love to pick up little catch phrases from movies/DVD's. They say "Shame, shame, shame" just like Gomer Pyle. Eben's new favorite phrase is "I'm toast." Joel's is, "That''s cool Mom." They are too funny.
4. Are the Wee Boy's Glasses real? And.. Where do you get them?
Yes, the Wee Boy's glasses are quite real. He is extremely far sighted. He also has Strabismus . He will always need corrective frames.
Because his vision is so poor he wears his glasses all the time. He can't stand not to have them on and even prefers to sleep in them. We purchase them from Solo Bambini. They are soft framed so they don't dent his skin when he lays down with them. Our insurance covers only part of the cost as they are out of network. The frames aren't too expensive, but his lenses are.
5. Are you pregnant?
Apparently there is a rumor going around church that I'm expecting. I am not.
Note to self: Don't wear cute, loose, peasanty shirts that are in style if you have 11 children..It messes with people's minds ;o)
6. Where did you get the Roman Roads T-shirt?
It was a hand me down from the Hereford Family :o)
If I forgot a question please ask away.
Have a Blessed Day!
