Conversations with Alexander

Xander (5): I think in heaven, there will be video games. They will be even better than video games here. And the characters you can choose will all be bible story characters. Mom, do you think everyone is a baby in heaven? So everyone is a baby when they first get there?

Birthday Wish

Max: Mom, for my birthday, I would like a $12 gift card and memorable activity with friends and family. 

Well, there you go. Not sure why, but this made me laugh. It's just so Max. Love this little man so much.

Maggie's Ballet Debut

August 16, 2013

It's here, it's here! After nearly three years of waiting and begging, Maggie will be turning six next week,and she is starting ballet today. Three hours until class starts and she's already been dressed and completely ready to go for an hour. Oh, and she's also had a constant dialogue going all day: "How many minutes until it's time for ballet? I've been imagining and imagining walking up to JBU carrying this bag with my ballet shoes. I think ballet is going to be one of my very special talents. Can a person ever get too old to do ballet, or can they just keep doing it until they're dead? How many minutes now until it's time for ballet?"
