on a more positive note, we'll be flying out to delaware thursday and won't be back until sunday. we have some college friends that are blessing us with some tickets to see them! fun times in store. i know dave is excited to spend some time fishing, plus we'll enjoy a fall festival. this will be the first time in awhile to go on "vacation" without bumming off the parents! (not that i don't love the beach, the mountains, or our family....)
have i mentioned that the boys are doing a PHENOMENAL job at school? aiden is reading well and drew is loving his class. i really think drew could be reading soon. don't want to push him, having him recoil from my reading efforts, but i might start sneaking in some reading without him knowing it. for instance, aiden was doing his bi-weekly reading homework and i pointed out the word "fox" to drew. he read it and several others on the page. fantastic. :) tons of applause and kudos to my pre-k little boy.
also, dave has recounted a couple of conversations he has witnessed with the boys concerning God. apparently, they were in wal-mart and (very loudly) had the following conversation with their daddy:
boys: "dad... is God rich????"
dave: "uh, yes... He is."
other customers start snickering and laughing...
boys: "so rich He could buy all these toys?!?!?"
and so it goes. gotta love 4 and 5 year old boys trying to figure out God.
