I'm not sure I will ever understand it - that sneaky, strong draw of the painted face.
Strong enough to make a 6 year old break out her own money for a sitting...
And walk away with JOY radiating from her newly painted cheeks!
Strong enough to make a 5 year old sister follow suit with ZERO hesitation...
and matchable post-paint joy!
I may not understand it... but if it makes smiles like this come to life...
BRING ON THE BRUSHES!

What do you do when you just changed into your swim gear for a Friday afternoon splashdown and a big, thunderous electric storm rolls in?
You make lemonade outta those lemons people.
And today that lemonade looked like a little girl in her bathing suit carrying an umbrella while circling the cul-de-sac in the rain...
They never took those suits off tonight - and around 7:00 pm it cleared enough for them to hit the pool... and we closed it down.
Persistence pays folk!

The girls got their school pictures back already - HOLY COW STOP GROWING UP!
There is simply no way that this is my little Mebski Love - rocking her some kindergarten!
What, what, WHAT??
And then there's this girl - holding down the fort in first grade.
Wow. I am so blessed and privileged to be on the front row watching these two smart, loving, gorgeous and funny Jesus followers grow up.
KEEP ON SHINING GIRLS!

This dude right here? Yo.. he can WHINE!
And his sisters were never really like that so it's kinda uncharted territory for us...
I mean seriously... it's bad.
If the wind blows funny...?
Whine it out Z-Dogg... whine it out.
But it won't get ya far 'round these parts, homey!

I was excited I made it home from work in time this afternoon to walk over and pick up the girls from their very first track practice with the Landsharks Running Club...
They were SO EXCITED about it this morning.
Afterwards, I asked them, "Tell me about it - how was it?"
"That was tiring!"And all God's parents said "AMEN!" We didn't tell them that we paid extra to ensure a very tiring practice!
I am super excited for them and can't wait for the first race.
Hang in there girls and show 'em what the "Ethiopian Fast Action Racing Team" (eFART) is made of!
