Our Code

Posted in our house is this sign:

Too bad it doesn't magically cause all of those things to happen.

I mean, check out the love in this face...

And here we have Mary Beth angry because Cory "stole" her seat...

But on occasion we do see glimpses of kindness and sharing...

like when the older kids read stories to their younger sisters or brother
and when Riley and Mary Beth created a scavenger hunt for Cory and Lucy that ended with treasure in the freezer (I'm sure you can imagine what kind of yummy treat might need to be stored in the freezer).

And as much as these moments (however rare they may be) please me, I'm sure the Man upstairs is pleased, too.
