Sign of The Cross

When Kaiden had his last check up, the doctor did an eye exam.  The children's eye chart has symbols instead of letters - triangle, square, circle, etc.  One of the symbols was a plus sign.  When Kaiden came to that one he said "Cross where Jesus died for our sins"  We are so proud of him.

Long Time Friends

We had a lovely brunch today with some long time friends of mine.  (I started to say old friends, but that didn't sound right - they are both younger than I am)!  I worked with Lynda many years ago, more years that I care to admit. Neither one of us had children back then. She and her husband, Jim, have been wonderful friends all these years. They were so good to Nathan and I in the first years after my divorce. I will always love them for how supportive of Nathan they have always been. They now live in California so I don't get to see them near enough. I didn't get pictures of them together, but just these with Trevin.

Thank you for being such good friends.

So I Will Remember

Kaiden says so many amazing things (at least his Gram thinks so) and I know that I will forget.  So I will remember  here are a few...

April was Stewardship month at church and the children's sermons have dealt with tithing.  The first Sunday each child was given ten pennies and asked to put one in a container for God; one in a bank to save and the remaining were theirs to keep.  That first day, Kaiden did not want to give up any of the pennies.  With a little persuasion he did.  The next Sunday he was a little quicker to add his pennies to the jug.  The last Sunday they were asked to bring their offering to add - he was first in line and gave his father a thumbs up.  (I was so proud).  One of these Sundays I gave him a few coins as a reward and told him this one is a nickel, this one is a dime, this one is a penny.  He looked at me and said "Which one is a coin"?

While I have had my cast on, I have not been going to the rail but Pastor has brought communion to me.  Kaiden wanted to know why and I explained it was because since I couldn't walk without a walker or crutches I am slow and it was just easier this way.  He looked at me and said "You could crawl (and he demonstrated) but that would be slower".

One night he told me we were out of Cuties.  I told him I knew but we had oranges.  He told me he couldn't eat oranges because his mouth was too little.

When I first broke my ankle, Kaiden asked me if he could sign my cast (I think there was some prompting behind that question). I didn't have a cast the first four weeks, just a splint. Last Saturday was the first time since I've had the cast that we were able to have him sign.

He very carefully wrote his 'K' and then wanted to write something else, so he added Hi.

He was very proud of what he wrote and so was I.
