He was so very brave today, and he LOVED kindergarten!

Instead, I have to explain to you that while walking down a perfectly straight trail, I tripped and pulled that muscle. I managed to make it through Sunday, but I spent Monday on the couch.
Did I mention that I had to start my first job in 6 years today?
I woke up this morning, and I was still in excruciating pain. I had no idea how I was going to be able to spend over 4 hours sitting in an uncomfortable chair.
As I was driving, the local Christian radio DJ read a verse out of the Bible. He talked about how when we are doing exactly what God wants us to do obstacles come. The details are really sketchy in my mind.
I said this prayer; "God I believe that I am exactly where you want me to be. You are going to have to show up and help me through this day."
When I stopped to put gas in my car, I realized that I was pain-free. God healed me! I was able to sit through that meeting today pain-free.
I believe that Satan tries to distract us when we are on the course that God has for us.
Is Satan trying to distract you today?
I am rejoicing in the fact that God is bigger than all of that liar's distractions!

The vines are still covered with green balls and blooms.
Every good pumpkin farmer needs a good pair of Crocs to wear with socks.
When I took this photo, he said, "I KNEW that you were going to take a photo so that you can make fun of me on your blog!"
What can I say....he knows me well!
Now, we have to figure out what to do with all of these "punkins."

A few minutes later he called, "Hey mom come listen to our band!"
I walk into the living room, and this is what I see.
What can I say, monkey see....monkey do!
I am a little concerned about what "bands" my sweetie is letting them listen to when I am not home!
This, my friends, will one day be used as bribery!

You then put the rinsed black beans and a can of water into the food processor. I would actually use about 3/4 of a can of water (our brownies were a little runny). You then process the mixture until you can't see the skins.
You add the brownie mix and nothing else. Bake the brownies according to the directions on the box. I actually baked mine for an extra 15 minutes.
This little gal will eat nothing that resembles a vegetable/bean, and she watched me make them. So....she is the true test!
