So that Means...

After Mikael's reception we were heading out to the car to get the kids home. I lagged behind a bit and when I got in the car Grant told me a little story. He said that he was in the parking lot and looked all around to make sure the coast was clear. After he confirmed they were alone he relieved himself of the stomach pressure he was experiencing. Asher asked, "Who was that." Grant answered, "Ummmm, I think it was Isaac." To which Asher replied, "Ok, so that means it was you." Enough said.

This Boy of Ours...

Yesterday we were at the park, crazy I know withe 95ish degree weather, but we were there with family. I got to be time to go and I was getting all the kids loaded up. Caleb was the remaining body to enter the car. He was putting his shoes on, and I kept telling him to just put them on in the car. He finally looked at me and told me he was going to run home. I was not comfortable with that considering how hot it was and how long he had already been in the sun. I told him he could not, that I did not think it was safe since it was so hot. He melted, cried and sobbed. I tried to tell him I was so sorry he was so upset, but it was not a good day to run outside. We got home and he was still crying and upset. I finally asked him if he would feel better if I let him run on the treadmill, to which he quickly replied, "YES!"

So, he got his shoes on, changed his clothes and was as happy as a lark. I put him on the treadmill at about a 13:20 pace and he ran a mile...our 6 year old very happily ran a mile. He would have run longer and faster had I let him. This kids just screams ATHLETE! It is so much of who he is. He impresses me constantly!

2 things that made me laugh yesterday

Asher and I were talking about Grant's birthday. He asked me if he was going to have a cake. I told him no, Dad does not really like cake. To which Asher said, "Then we better make sure he has presents."

Grant is doing the special olympics with Scott again. While Grant was getting the golf cart I was talking to Scott. He was doing his stretches while he told me he just got back from a family reniun with his cousins. I asked him if it was his mom's family that had the reunion. He stopped dead in his tracks, looked at me and said, "It's my family too Brittani."
