Here’s a collection of our favorites from Lilly…
(as we make our way around the table declaring what we’re thankful for…) I’m thankful I’m not touring any castles or palaces.
(While waiting for the Symphony to begin) I’d rather be at church right now.
It sure feels good to be completely honest now. (wondering when the parents are going to be called to the Principal’s office)
July 7, 2013 (desperate for dinner, Tim stops into the local tourist office for directions) Why do we have to go in there. We came here to eat, not to learn.
June 2, 2013 (while Lilly sits to watche giddy high school girls get ready for prom)
I kinda feel bad about all the makeup in the bathroom because I am just regular me. I feel guilty that I don’t wear any and when you guys do, you don’t look any different.
I don’t hang out with girlie girls…I don’t get their theology of unicorns, puppies, purple and pink.
February 2013 (Versailles, France…on Lilly’s decision to sit at the entrance gates and wait for us to return…)
If all palaces are built to look like Versailles,
AND we’ve seen all the palaces in Europe,
is it still necessary to see Versailles?
Can a democrat marry a republican?
As Lindsey packed to return to college….”No, please stay. When you leave, the beatings begin.”
I can handle cathedrals…they are only one room.
While Tim and I discussed great philosophers and the meaning life, I said, That’s what it means to be human. Every human asks…Why am I here? Why was I created?” Lilly shakes her head and says, “Nope. I’ve never asked that question.”
After a day touring old town Bamberg…”You know what I love about America? It has no history!”
“What? Lauren’s still in high school? I thought she was leaving for college. No one tells me anything.”
“he told me to take my ponytail out. He likes my freestyle hair.”
“When I go to college I’m not going to a smart school. I’m going to a party school!”
