2 year old wisdom

I keep saying that I need to write down all the cute, sweet, and funny things Isaiah says. Then the inevitable happens, I FORGET! So tonight I have come right to the computer to jot down our bedtime prayers. Isaiah: "Now lay me down to sleep. Pray Lord my soul to keep. Keep me safe tonight and wake me with the light. God is -mazing and great. Thank you for Owen and Hudson. Amen." Me: "Isaiah, you forgot to confess your sin. Do you remember getting in trouble today?" Isaiah: "Yea I got spanking." Me: "Why?" Isaiah: "I not listening the first time." Me: "That's right. You have to be obedient." Isaiah: "God I sorry I not obedient. Amen." Then we sang a song. As soon as we finished Isaiah added: "If I not obedient, God feed me to the whale like Jonah." bwahahahahaha Glad that story made an impression! (side note, we read it two weeks ago!) This kid warms my heart. In one moment I am near tears for his sweet prayers and the next I am on the verge of uncontrollable laughter because of how he interprets things! So blessed to be his mommy!

Labor Day Weekend

Mike took off work the Friday before Labor Day and we headed to Greersferry, Arkansas for a much needed retreat at the Roost! My parent's cabin is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy nature. Well, you can mostly unwind. That is until your almost 3 year old figures out how to start the golf cart, release the emergency break and floor the gas pedal! Unfortunately he didn't figure out the steering wheel or break and crashed right in to the side of the house. Ebbie almost had a stroke! Luckily he just got a bump on the head. This kid! All in all it was a great weekend. Alabama had a victory, we got in some pontoon time, Mike got to fish every morning, we ate some yummy food, swam, took naps and spent some much needed family time together! Water fun!
Game Time!
The Roost!

Growing Up

With little Miss Isabella due to make an arrival in January we decided it was time to start Isaiah in preschool. He goes two days a week from 930-230. It gives him some time to make new friends, learn new things and adapt to a new environment and I get time to do the things he hates doing with me (trips to target, grocery store, laundry, cleaning and NAPPING hahahaha). He has done such a great job getting up, getting ready and walking in to his classroom with a smile every day. I am so proud of him. My favorite part is picking him up at the end of the day and seeing the excitement in his eyes as his shares his craft of the day with me. On Thursdays he stays an extra 45 minutes later and participates in a computer/tech class. HE LOVES IT! We are very happy with his school and teachers and can't wait to see all the new things he learns this year. Who knows, maybe next year he will want to go three days a week??!! ;-)
