Tonight after church we were on our way to take the boys home. Unusually both boys were in a good mood, which made for a peaceful ride! Jake was talking about when he would be baptized and then we were just having normal conversation. Jake then said he needed to work out harder for football. However, he added that he needed to focus on God first and then football! My heart felt proud to hear him say that. After our sweet family moment.... Ben chimed in! He said.." Yeah Jake you better keep that first one (refering to God) on your list! Or you will be in big trouble!! lol. The cutest part was, he was dead serious!!
Later down the road....Adam was kidding around with me. He said that I was gonna get a beatin when I got home because I asked him to go get me some gas! Ben once again chimed in and said...." YOU CAN'T HIT GIRLS!!" Then after a long pause he said in a sneaky voice..." THEY'LL HIT YOU BACK!" lol :) He might have learned that lesson from his little girl-----friend Miss Sydney McKay. Notice I added many ------ between girl and friend! He emphasizes that very often. "Sydney is just my FRIEND!"
And yet later on....while pumping gas.... Ben and I had a thrill locking Adam out of the car. I did it the first time, just to be mean and Ben found it HILARIOUS! He was laughing hysterically, and it was so cute. Adam would have usually got mad....but he was laughing just as hard watching Ben laugh! To say the least our 20 minute adventure home from church was great time with the boys. However, before we made it back to Granny's the boys were fighting in the back seat. Ben was throwing punches and Jake was complaining about the whole situation! ! Things were back to normal.........
But we love it! Im so thankful for the family I have with my three boys. I wouldn't trade it for the world!!
