Half Christian??

Glass Half Full Clip Art The other day I heard my son talking.  This is what I heard, "Yes we are half Christians!"  Right away my heart dropped.  What?  How could he said that?  Where did he hear it?  So, I had to ask, if we are half Christians than what is the other half?  He looked at me with a "mom, you know" look and said "Duh, Human!"  I talked to him about what a christian is and explained that we are FULL christian and human and we could be both.

So that kinda got stuck in my head and the more I have been thinking about it, the more I think "well, he is kinda right!"  We are human but, our goal is to become more Christ like, to grow closer to God.  The closer we grow to him the further we grow from this world right?  I want to grow closer to God, but it is hard to give up these worldly things I have.  I worry about money, clothes, my hair, etc... and I should be worried about my God, my relationship.   

So really, I guess I am only half christian in that sense, if I can even say that (more like 1/4??)  Leave it to my baby to help me understand where I am and where I need to go!

New friends

This weekend I was so blessed to be able to go to the Homeschooling convention in Cincinnati.  I was so overwhelmed as a new homeschooling mom at all the options out there!  One of my favorite parts of the weekend would have to be meeting one of my blogging buddies!  I met up with Jaime over at My Delightful Life!  It was so fun to be able to spend some time with her and her beautiful family.  I love how God can bring people together, even though we don't even live in the same state! 

My daughters and their new friend!
 Not only did I get to meet a new friend, but my kids got to meet some too :)  My girls enjoyed it so much.  The Duggar's (from 19 and Counting) were also there!  While my son really didn't care to much that they were there or impressed that they were on TV, he was excited to meet and play with a new friend (Justin Duggar)  He was so sad that we had to leave his new "friend". 

My son (in blue) with Justin!  When we
got ready to leave, Justin gave the bag to
my son to take home :)
Here are a couple of pictures from my weekend.  Hopefully I will be able to get a post up soon about some of the things that stuck out in the classes!
