Leave your "mark" on the world!

This phrase is something we say to our children pretty often. We want them to be productive and contributing members of society. We want them to be understanding of those around them and show love to others, but we didn't know we'd be taken so literally...




Apparently this morning before anyone else was up or out of bed, Mason found the box of markers. It was all over his sheets, blankets, pillow pet, legs, arms, pj's and face. I thought it was blissful that we got to sleep until 7:30. He's usually the first to wake us up at 6! Turns out this morning wasn't much different, he just had something to fill his time! What a kid!

Beth - Thankfully they were crayola washables and they are in deed washable. It came out of everything.
Mandy - I feel bad telling Trace he can't have markers just because he has little brothers and sisters, so as long as they're washable we keep them around. This is only the second time in 2 years that it's happened so we have a pretty good track record.
