I'm so lucky

Daddy left for California today. We miss him already! But we know this job would be fantastic for our family. Its just me and my boys this weekend!


How did I get so lucky with my beautiful boys? Their so amazing. So compassionate. Yesterday we were in Walmart, and a guy in front of us was in a wheelchair. He was kind of jerky, and would be a little scary to little kids. Not my boys. They talked to that guy like he was just like them. They looked past the wheelchair, slurred speech, and jerky movements. That's my boys!

About an hour after daddy left, Tanner told me that he needed to call him. He told me he'd forgotten to say goodbye to someone. So he called daddy, and I guess put one of the kittens up to the phone. Ray could hear it meow through the phone.
Duh, he forgot to say goodbye to the kitties! At least Tanner didn't put each one up and make him say goodbye!

Carter's hair has gone golden from the sun. I love it!
He told me that he lets kids go in front of him in gym because he always wins and other kids aren't as fast. So he lets slow kids go in front of him to give them a chance to win. Oh my sweet little surfer dude!

The boys asked if they could have a sleepover in Jax room again. One of these days I'll have to leave Jax off his vent, and bring his pulse ox in the family room and let him have a sleepover with his big brothers.
How did I get so lucky?
My boys are the best!

That's so awesome that your boys are comfortable around people with disabilities. They are learning a valuable lesson about compassion from Jax.
