Jessica: Joshua, do you want to play baseball, soccer, basketball or [mumbled]football[/mumbled]?
Joshua: I want to play baseball. And soccer. And basketball.
Me: Do you want to play football?
Me: Do you want to be the boy that runs with the football, or the boy that tackles the boy with the football?
David posted a couple of videos recently on the Familyvance YouTube Channel that we hope you’ll watch as an enticement to come visit Colorado in Winter. Our Texas friends and family always blanch at visiting in Winter because they think it’s too cold. It’s not, it’s awesome weather for being outside, and it makes sitting…
Today is David’s 36th birthday.
Driving home from school, Elijah and Joshua were talking in the back seat as usual. They started talking about grades in school and how when Elijah is in 4th grade, Joshua will be in 2nd grade and so on. They went on through middle school and high school.
Joshua said, “12th grade is the last grade.”
I replied, “And then you go to college.”
Joshua then said in the sweetest, most sincere voice, “You go to college, then you get married, then you get a baby, and then you live happily ever after.”
I hope he’s learning from example.
