Busy days

Wow! It's been over a week since last post. Time just slips away....doesn't it?

Let me tell you a little about my oldest son Ethan. I'm not sure if his behavior is one of a typical six year-old. He tends to be a tad bit worrisome. About a month ago he went to Meijer with his aunt and uncle. They saw an elderly woman standing by her cart vomiting on the floor. He found that scene very disturbing. Couldn't even tell us what happened, his aunt and uncle had to describe the gory details. And just about every night since then he starts to feel sick right before going to bed. He brings the old lady up for discussion and I say "Don't think about it!". He doesn't want to go to that Meijer store ever again.

Yesterday he asked me these questions- "Can a mosquito suck all of your blood?" I proceeded to tell him that was impossible. He then asked- "What if a bunch of mosquitos came at the same time?" I told him that wouldn't happen, you could slap them away and squash them. He finished the convo by asking "Would you die if you had no blood in your body?" I said yes, and he grimly rode off on his bike. He's got a thing about blood too. It's the end of the world if there is some leaking from him some where.

He had a really loose tooth the other day, right in the top front. He was trying to punch it out because it was bugging him and that's how he lost his other one- his brother bumped him in the mouth. I told him that I would gladly assist him. He wasn't too keen on that idea. But I went and got a paper towel. I was joking around with him and kinda wrestled him to the ground. He was laughing and I was trying to get a hold of it with paper towel in hand. Suddenly he stopped laughing, sat forward and spit out his tooth. I guess I bumped it good when we were wrestling around. This was followed by a bit of a hissy fit because then, of course, he was bleeding- which meant he was going to die- or so he thinks.

Besides handling my son's some what neurotic questions, I've been getting a lot of work done. One wedding down- two more to go. I thought I would post some shots taken by myself and the great Kimberly Jean.

Thanks for looking!
