Can I have a Banana to Hold Me Down?

My kids totally crack me up! Comfort just asked me if dinner was ready and when I said not yet she asked if she could have a banana to hold her down. HA! Yesterday I gave her a banana before dinner told her it was to hold her 'over'. Adverbs are interchangeable, right?
Now that I think about it, I wish I could give my kids a banana to hold them down. That would be great!!
Every day we get a few good chuckles out of the things the kids say. I should keep a journal.

Another Great Hike

Umtanum Canyon was a great hike for the Pearsons and the Knoxs! It was a beautiful 70 degree day for our desert hike, or so we thought. 3 miles in it started to hail, snow, thunder, lightning and rain. We were all in our t-shirts and some of us had on shorts. The big kids took off running back to the van while Mark and I took up the rear with the Comfort and the Knox's youngest daughter. We were all soaked, freezing and miserable, but happy to have conquered another adventure!! I was amazed that Comfort made it almost all the way and I just had to carry her on my back the last mile.
Last year I left for my second trip to Ghana on May 6th, the same day of this hike. I can't believe it's been almost a year that the kids have been here.
