Weekend in Nashville, TN

We had to go to Nashville, TN for the weekend:

  • "Do we get to ride in a plane to get there?"
  • "Is there pretty beaches in Nashville?"
  • Getting into the car..."Mom, you should hit the "trip button" (on your car) cause we are taking a trip."
  • "When we see people wearing sun glasses, how can you tell if they are really sunglasses or if they are blind people glasses?"
  • Eating dinner at a fancy steak restaurant...."I wish we could have just eaten at Sonic, I'm tired of using manners!"
  • "What do you mean we can't listen to froggy 104 (local country radio station) in this town, I thought you said we were in the capital of country music!"
  • "I think I'm gonna be a one of those car finder people when I get bigger...people just hand them money for finding their cars for them."   -- Translation...he was amused with valet parking.
  • "Hotel friends are fun to play with at the pool."
  • "I like using credit cards for keys."

This past Friday, I had out patient surgery...I'll be down for the next couple of weeks so my son is trying to adjust to my inability to do certain things, however, he's had a few questions since Friday...
  • "Daddy said they gave you gas to put you to sleep for your surgery."  "Yes, son that's correct."  "What kind of gas did they give you?"  "Huh?  What do you mean?"  "Well, did you get laughing gas or did they give you pooting gas?"
  • "Can we go outside today and throw frisbe?  No, I don't think I'm up to it today.  Well, I'll be glad when you can go outside, I bet you've almost forgot what it looks like!"
  • "I sure do love you!  I'll be glad when I can hug you around your belly again!"

Awards Day

Today was Awards Day at school.  Today's Awards include:

  • Running a Mile Award
  • Jump Rope Award
  • Honor Roll
  • Most Ambitious Award
"Son, do you know what "most ambitious" means?"
"Well, I think it probably means I was the rowdiest in the class"

His teacher summed up the year:
"There has never been a dull moment with you around!"
"You have kept a smile on my face this year!  I loved having you in my class!"

We were blessed to have such a WONDERFUL teacher this year!

Sr. Adult Day (at church)

Today, we honored the Senior Adults at our church.  The entire service was centered around the Seniors and how they have mentored so many people, led many people to Christ, etc.  At one point during the service, our pastor was telling a joke about getting old (losing hearing, eyes not seeing as good, grey hair, different body parts failing, etc.)  Son was listening...leaned over and said in a whispering voice..."Is he for real?  Does all that really happen to old people?  I sure am glad I'm just a kid!"
