Well, my internet's been in and out for a couple of weeks. Now it seems to be more in than out, so maybe we'll actually be able to accomplish something on here.
Thoughts after my first week and a a half of having a 7th grader (some related to that, others not so much.)
1. Why does my son's head turn into a tomato when you mention girls?
2....And he grins from ear to ear, showing his adorable dimples! (I can never get him to do that for school pictures?)
3. What is it with our family and death on school picture day? My grandma died on school picture day and we got the news just before. My son got the news right before(and I do mean RIGHT before) they took his pictures that his best friend's baby brother died. Still don't know waht happened. I'm guessing SIDS, but do not yet know. He was 2 months old and perfectly healthy. Jeremiah loved that kid and I know his family did, too. Please pray for them. Jeremiah's friend, Christian, is also in the 7th grade, and they have a few other kids as well.
4.In all my selfishness (am I sick or what?!) I thought, "Great, now I'm definitely not going to get a smile out of him in his pictures." In light of everything, WHO CARES!!!!!!
5. Is it really necessary for boy's to stick their hands down their pants every 20 minutes or so?
6. Why do they not care if they get hurt as long as they got to hurt someone else in the process? (Tackling in football.)
7. Why don't we just paint my car yellow and paint "Taxi Cab" on the side, cause that is what I am. I would really rather not live in my car, but alas, I am.
8. I had a whole lot of thoughts for you yesterday. Today, not so much. But then, that was before I got the above news about nearby families baby. Why must things like this happen?
