On Valentine's Day, David ran his first 5K. It was a windy and chilly morning, but the whole family cheered him on. The boys had a great time watching the "race!" David did a great job and is looking forward to running a 10K next time!
And they are off! Can you find David?

I just wanted to share a little story of Ethan's latest milestone. Since the beginning of school, I had this goal to pray with Ethan before we entered the school building. Well, sometimes I remembered and sometimes I forgot. For the past month, I have made it a ritual. At the beginning Ethan would say, "No I don't want to!" Mainly because he would rather be running through the doors to find his friends. Then he started to remind me to pray. Well, this past week I no longer am the one who prays. Ethan has stopped me every morning to say, "Lets pray Mommy." He puts his little face down on my console between the driver seat and passenger seat and has the most sincere conversation with God. The first time I sat there in amazement and listened with my eyes open so I could paint this memory in my mind. He remembers each important person to him and totally understands what he is praying for. Daddy to be safe driving to work. Will to have fun at Tee-Ta's (the babysitter). Mommy to do a good job at work. And last but not least....For him to listen to his teachers and share with his friends.
Granted this is a summary of what I had been praying for with him, but I am so amazed at the fact the he GETS it and understands what he is asking for. For the past two days, he has stopped me in the middle of our errands while we are in the car and has said, "Mommy let's pray." He then begins to talk to God. It is the cutest and sweetest thing ever! At night before supper he will sometimes pray for the family before we eat. He has many times prayed for us to have fun playing the Wii, for him to go to Mems and Pop's house, for his friend to come over and play, and for Will to eat his food. David and I just have to try our best not to bust out laughing! I wish that I could bottle up the sincerity he feels when he has conversations with God so that I can spread a little bit of it later on top of his head when he is older. For now, I stand amazed at the faith of a three year old and wish with all my heart that I can be like Ethan one day!
Thanks for letting me share!
